Disclosure: I'm one of the founders of Ragic.

How is the name pronounced? "Rage-ick" or "Rag-ick"?

'ra-jik': sounds like the English word 'Tragic'.

For a long time when we search "Ragic" google will ask us "Did you mean tragic?"

Rag-ick It's suppose to be Rapid + Magic

If it's not too late, I think you should consider a name revamp. I get that you want to convey the speed and power/ease/fluidity of your application, but the truncation + concatenation of those two words ends up not bringing either of those words to mind. I don't blame you if English is not your first language; but this is a case where the combo does not work because you've combined two unrecognizable parts of two words to create a third unrecognizable word.

As someone said earlier, people are much more likely to think of "tragic." Actually, I think they'll think of "rage", which is an emotion that you most definitely do not want associated with your software.

Given that you aren't even getting the connotation of "rapid"/"magic", you're better off using an arbitrary word.

For Arrested Development fans, think of the combo-profession of "Analyst" + "Therapist".

Just call it Rapid Magic! Instead of Tragic Rage

It's a great name IMHO. Good luck with it!
