    Accepted Solution

    Yes.  Launchbar -- does this and a whole bunch of other stuff I haven't explored.

    For file searching by name it is great, however.

    This is already built in to the finder:
    - command-F defaults to a content search, but still has an option for file name search
    - command-shift-F defaults straight to file name search.

    All of these searches ar run against an index that is maintained by the OS.
