Contest: What's My Name?

edited November -1 in Introductions
So, I've been lingering around the forums for a while. Posting here and there. Just trying to pick up as much as possible before biting the bullet that is...well...paying for stuff!

After test driving GS for 2 long months, I've finally purchased a license and I'm ready to start hawking my wares in the App store.

My problem: Most people have a cool name for their "Company". I just have...barkbark00. I highly doubt that will evoke the sentiment I want from prospective customers.

The Solution: A contest to determine the best name for my fledgling endeavor into the Apple abyss.

Post your suggestions here. If someone else gives your name a "+1", that's it, you're in (read: nominated)!

This "primary" of sorts will end Sunday, at Midnight EST. All nominees will be added to a poll and the community will decide which is best! Depending on the number of nominees, I may need to set up a bracket system...

The Prize: No t-shirts here...sorry. :-(

I will give the person with the winning suggestion the first crack at all games I develop with GS. You will be emailed the coveted FIRST Promo code generated for any GS app I make!

And, they're off!

    I hate to come up with a winner on the first post...

    But your Company should be called:

    Bark<Byte

    1) It includes the Bark, that is either part of your nickname or handle, and it therefore part of your identity.

    2) It implies a pun on "His Bark is worse than his Bite". < = less than

    3) It includes a pun on the word bite, changing it to Byte, showing its relationship to things … computery.

    I can imagine a logo that makes use of the "<" symbol in cool ways too, but that's only because I have a background in design. Think "NIKE SWOOSH".

    Again … Sorry to nail this so soon. Good luck. :D

    Wow. Interesting that that is the first one out of the gate. I considered starting a tech/rant blog a while ago and it was going to be called "bytes&barks"! or was it "barks&bytes"?

    Don't worry, you'll still get credit if that is chosen! Consider this a "+1"...

    Can you provide a little more info about your new company? Like, is this name just for iPhone app development? Games only? etc, etc

    I wouldn't call it a "company". It's a "funpany"!

    Yes, games mostly...focusing on iDevices. ;-)

    Personally, I really like your company's (I mean funpany's ;-) name – but without the double 0; i.e barkbark. Think that's sort of cool. (But I also like ACE23's suggestion).

    @gyroscope, Thanks. It's nice to see "barkbark" getting some love. That has been my handle since 1999...lol.

    Honestly dude I like BarkBark in all sincerity. If it's been your handle for so long, go with it.

    I can see that being a "funpanies" name and no one else would have anything like it. It's unique and people already kind of know you by Barkbark. Don't change it, stick with it.

    BarkBarkGames sounds catchy enough...easy to spell and to remember.
    is the .com available? Make sure whatever name you do select has a .com available to grab.

    Okay, since the concensus seems to be that I NOT change my name, and that wasn't anyone's original idea, maybe I should change the goal of the contest. BTW, not what I expected, but I'm totally cool with it in a weird way!

    Does anyone think that the FIRST promo code to all my games ever would not be enough of a prize for a logo creation contest?

    Thanks for all the feedback fellow GS'ers!

    Edit: I do like the dog shaped tree idea. That is genius!
