New Software Company Name

Does anybody have any ideas for a good company name for a software company?? We have not been able to come up with any real good ones yet. Our current software solutions consist of a document workflow system and a claims retreival system for claims payors and both of these systems are web based solutions. All ideas are welcome. Thanks

<Somewhat sarcastic>  Take a perfectly good word that conveys intelligent design, and alter one syllable.   That seems to be the way software companies are named around here.  Spherion, Magenic, ...

How about "Synergy Solutions"
You need to decide whether you want to go with a scary, boring, confusing name, like "Spherion", or a fun, hip, esoteric name, like Google or Amazon, even though it might not describe your purpose well.

Spherion and the ilk remind me of faceles, soulless corporate fronts for evil manics in Bond movies.

You could always marry parts of the founders' names. Smith + Johnson = ok, that's a lousy example.

Ask your kids to come up with something.

Think of something you could comfortably yell, like a dog's name. Or soemthing with a good acronym you could fall back on when your real name starts to suck.

You could always distill what it is you actually do in a word or two: Web Claims

Web Claims 2000! Oh, yeah...Web Claims 3000! RIngs nice, good luck with getting the domain, though.

haha, i don't know
How about....

Admantium - For undestructable

Genesis - A coming into being

Blink / Dart- very quick webs

Membrane - lol Brainy

Spider - Spiders everywhere in google (Spider web)

Webfoot - WEb giant.

I dont know, hope you find a good name for your software company and Im looking forward to the name you 're going to choose..

How about "Flowtsum" with "Systems" or "Enterprises" or something like that after it

Flow as in the workflow program
Similar to Flotsum, meaning goods swept ashore from a shipwreck or accidently thrown overboard goods.
Can use the retrival software to get the flotsum back
Can also incorporate the fluid nature of the web ie your software is goods at sea = software on net?

Some of this may be a stretch but it can work
How about "ViagraSoft" - Providing software that goes on and on (and on)!"

but seriously folks....I agree with the previous posts. You want something with a linguistic origin associated with positive connotations. Maybe look through some old religions for inspiration - egyptian mythology is good for names like Isys Solutions (an old company name of mine) - derived from Isis, the goddess who tracked down the dismembered body of her husband and put him back together so she could be inseminated.

Ataxophobia- Fear of disorder or untidiness.
Atelophobia- Fear of imperfection.
Atephobia- Fear of ruin or ruins.

Maybe a name associated with fears which your product may avail people of....need to avoid negative connotations though.

Good luck!
