re: How do you name your projects/products? VIEW POST


For internal/personal stuff that will never be published, I just give it a generic but descriptive name.

For stuff I actually intend to publish, if the intenral approach results in a name that appears to be unique enough to not cause any confusion, I just use it. Otherwise, I come up with some word or phrase that seems to fit the project, and then try to find a linguistic permutation of that that I like (IOW, try the same word or phrase in other languages, try it with various synonyms, etc).

In most cases though, I use a temporary name based on the internal approach until I actually get to the point that the project is most of the way done.
