There's also a Nicki Minaj song called Super Bass, although i admit that is less likely to get confused with either of them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4JipHEz53sU

I posted this below, but since you mention Nikki -

Funny story, Supabase was originally a placeholder name - it was a joke so that Ant (co-founder) and I could entertain each other with Nikki Minaj "Super Bass" memes while we were brainstorming.

But the name grew on us once we made the initial design. Thankfully Nikki Minaj isn't well-known amongst techies.

I hope I haven't just ruined our credibility
