|I'm always stuck on picking a name and I find I always to tend to settle for the obvious not-creative-at-all name that just describes the product as-is.|
And I mean that literally. Like, if I were to build a search engine, I probably would just name it "Search Engine".
When I think of picking random names that have nothing to do with the product, I can't settle on anything, because it will always be something that interests or fascinates me (just me!) and I feel that no one else would care about it, or they may even laugh at it, so therefore such a name would not be a good name.
How do you pick a name?
