New Name Proposal for UsePencil.com

by BradyOriginal

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!

Meet: Floish

Floish - Pronounced (FLOW - ISH) is my proposed name for this platform! A few reasons why...

This platform just Flows β‰ˆ

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!

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

Update! This was a fun process, and I am happy with the name that was chosen to replace Pencil! Comma will be a strong brand for this platform! Excited to see the brand evolve.

@sydney - The platform is AMAZING! I spend a ton of time looking at startups, following trends, etc. There is a ton of potential here. I can already think of a ton of ways to utilize this. One of the best use cases I have seen is the Interviews. The Flow of the platform is just perfect too. Full screen images with bite size text and no distraction! If you can't tell, I really like it. I will go out on a limb and say that you have a chance to be huge! You have essentially created a new type of content, hence the reason I would like you to pick my name so that you can dub these stories/content a "flo" :) I can't wait to try some of the new ideas I have.
