Imagine a world where the word “twitter” still meant the sounds little birds make at dawn instead of a way to tell your network what you’re doing in 140 characters or less. Or if “uber” was still a bizarre way to say something was above and beyond, while now it’s nationally -- or at least regionally -- recognized as a great way to get car service from a smart phone app. It’s incredible how technology and innovation have reshaped how we define common words.
Many great start ups and wildly successful businesses have built brand awareness around a seemingly nonsensical name. Google, Skype, Etsy: they’re all household names now built from seemingly random words or sounds. Companies like Apple took a simple word, inspired by Steve Jobs trip to a fruit farm, and turned it into a synonym for technology.So, are you ready to be a success story built around a clever name?
