Finding the right name  ↦

If you listened to our GitHub Sponsors episode, you know how much I love sweating the details on a name. I’m not the only one. In this insightful post, Chris Bowler shares some of his struggles with the matter:

When working on a new idea, the hardest part for me is figuring out a name and how to talk about the idea overall. Even when the idea is solid and there is interest or demand for it, even when I can articulate the problem it will solve, I often struggle to find a name.

He then gives five exercises he goes through when picking a name, which I heartily endorse (even though I don’t practice all five).

Figuring out a good name is even harder when you take into consideration free domains and social network names/logins.
