UsePencil wants a new name.
UsePencil is a good name, however as they stated: They want a new name!
Branding / Naming is one of my passions.
I love coming up with a Brand or a Name for a company, idea, product, whatever it may be. I even created crazy new words as a child!
Floish - Pronounced (FLOW - ISH) is my proposed name for this platform! A few reasons why...
This platform just Flows ≈
When I started using Pencil, I immediately felt a fluidity to the stories. With mouse and swipe both, the stories just Flow.
Flow became my base word.
Flow is a great base word, but much like Pencil, it is too generic and needed to be unique. I removed the W to make it Flo, shorter and more stylish!
ish - the perfect match.
ish was the perfect suffix to Flo. ish - meaning "Similar to" ie: Girlish, English, British As a bonus: The term Publish also ends in -ish
Flōish is brandable, unique and available.
Most important, when coming up with a name, it must be brand-able, unique and available. Floish is a 6 letter name (short matters) and it is available as a Twitter handle and a domain!
A Flo instead of a Story!
Hey @Twitter, I just published a Flo on how to get rich! floish.com/howtogetrich
Great things have a nice flo
A song that has a nice flo. A word that flos well. Don't force it, just let it flo!
What is in it for me?
I am a creative thinker that loves branding and startups. It would delight me to see such a great platform use a name that fits them well. For me, recognition is a bonus!
Thank you for reading. This is my first Pencil post and hopefully my first Flo on Floish! If you like the name, leave your support in the comments. All feedback is encouraged! -Brady
