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.
  • goliathgoliath Member Posts: 1,435
    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.

    Genius!

    I also liked Ace23's reasoning and ideas - but honestly, it has to be barkbark :P

    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.
  • BarkBarkCoBarkBarkCo Member Posts: 1,400
    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!
