Kilpailun tehtävänanto

This is a contest for a company name. No logo, no graphics, nothing but a simple name.

About the company:
I run a sole propietorship in Sweden. It's a legally a one man company but I work together with tons of people. I take on big projects and in turn hire programmers, artist, sound designers on a project basis. On my own, but more often, together with others, I make web sites, apps for iOS and Android, games and e-books. My current company name is by default the same as my First Name + Last Name, which is not very catchy. I of course have a website for all my projects, which is all good, but it has grown from a personal site to a company site, and its URL spelling is hard for Swedes to get right on the first try.

So here are my guidelines for choosing a contest winner:

1) It has to be easy to pronounce and to spell (especially for Swedes). My current URL involves the word Chromatic and most people miss out the letter H when spelling it.

2) The name has to be available as either a .se or .com address. Bonus points if both are available.

3) Open for change of business. By this I mean that it shouldn't trap me in a certain category. Apple, Blizzard, Valve, Grafeio are all good since they would be able to change their business. IBM personal computers" would be a bad example. I have added skills and I'm sure I will adapt in the coming years by possibly adding e-commerce to my company or remove e-books which isn't going super well.

4) Catchy.


EDIT: I've rated most entries and have found that I really prefer the anonymous sounding names. If you can make up a new word that sounds good, makes you think of digital creation and is easy to spell, I think that's the way to go.

Let me also iterate: The name has to be available as either a .se or .com address. Bonus points if both are available. Most of the entries are already taken as domain names.

    using swedish words could kill your international/oversea image as some may not know those words that is why all the names I have proposed are in english...but simple english words for swedes also to easy understand and spell.

It also allow for a business change as concept fit in almost everywhere while the word noble still qualify your work as something extraordinary. The best from me to you.

    Greetings Contest-Holder, Can you please rate the entries? also, most of the time, the price for domain names with keywords with .com is really high, is it a constraint also ?

    I also want to ask, should the names be composed purely of professional words? or can it have a casual freaked out words also ?

    All still available in .com and .se.
    I tried mixing some Swedish words with English, yet retaining an understanding of the term. (example...the word DON is ALL in swede) MediaDon. For the C-Nergi, i assumed you may want to retain the Chromatic - this is here represented by the C. Tack.

    My current website is www.chromatic.se.

    If you'd like to put all your suggestions in the same upload: that's fine! If there's a way to make it easier for you, just let me know. It seems like overkill to have to upload a vector file just to show a simple name. Is there a way to just upload text?

      It's fine, don't worry about it. It takes longer to think of ideas, than to create the image for submission. ;)

      Also #8 is mine. HoofStudio sounds like something very catchy, something that makes me think about animations & games. Also it sounds very imposing and serious. I like it so much, I might buy it myself! Hehe! :D

      P.S. I've been using the word Studio, because it brings into mind the word "creation". Also, it will be useful if you will expand & have a team.

    My entry is #5, I think it is very catchy(you could get tons of marketing ideas from this!), both domains are available. I've added that fruit slice so you can get an idea of how catchy and glossy your website could look. I personally think this won't get you stuck in any business domain ever! Have a nice day!
