Needing product name ideas. . .

[ #20972 ]

So I'm writing Yet Another E-Commerce Application. . . while there are some out there that would likely do what I need, there's not the same satisfaction as there is rolling my own. The app is coming along, but I still am lacking a name for said project.

Sooooo. . . . we are selling light bulbs, lighting fixtures, and related accessories. The application, however, is not specific to these things. I'm looking for a suitable name for this project, with Valuable Bonus Points being awarded if the name has something to do with those items.

More seriously now. . . this project is being funded by a not-to-be-named (yet) company. I'm sure they won't let me pay someone for coming up with a name, but I can probably arrange purchase of a book or two for the winning suggestion, or gift certificate for a restaurant of choice, or something similar (they have been cool about picking up some expenses of these types for me to date).

If anyone has any ideas, please fire them my way :) I've been thinking for a while now and am drawing blanks. This type of creativity I do not possess :(

  • Does it have any features that make it stand out? Is there something about this project that might impact the name other than it's for selling light bulbs and lighting fixtures?
    • Hmm. Not sure what I'm doing that some other creative webapp developer wouldn't have thought of already, but as far as things already done or planned:
      • Very flexible and easy-to-administer security scheme
      • Very configurable user interface
      • Easily plug-in code to talk to a credit card vendor (should just have to change what module is being used)
      • Administrators can easily define what types of items are being sold, what attributes belong to those items, and what categories they belong to.
      • Admins can easily creat
      • How about Trafique? First, sounds like "Traffic", which is a synonym for commerce or a bunch of hits. Secondly, it sounds "Unique".
        You should make sure that it doesn't mean anything obscene in French, though.
      • It sounds pretty cool. I'm drawing a blank though... Perhaps you could create an acronym that fits the industry.

        Okay, this is a bad example but you get the idea.

  • Delight (as in de-light). Any technology that uses your backend would be considered "delighted". You could describe various state conditions as "delightful".
