A friend of mine wants to start a company, but finding a company name seems impossible WTF | :WTF:
He makes drawings in (Auto)CAD.
All the good names are gone, the slightly lesser names are also gone, some of the boring names are gone too.
Some names aren't taken by companies, but by assholes who buy up all good domain names so they can sell them for $$$.
The really boring names like "[last name] CAD" remain.
He has a common name though, so googling for his last name gives you some chemist, a car dealer and a stage builder as well.

I've been through this pain a few years ago when I ultimately settled for JUUN Software.
Sounds cool (if I say so myself), but juun is just local dialect for onion, which I chose when I went to lunch frustrated, because I couldn't think of a good name, and found an onion in my fridge.
Spoiler alert, there are already multiple companies named Onion as well Laugh | :laugh:
The Dutch word for onion is ui (English doesn't have the sound we use to pronounce this, but it's kind of like the "ui" in "guide"), but you can see how UI is a problematic name as well Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
JUUN is cool because it's a local export product, just like me, and because they say good software is like an onion, built in layers (at least that's what I tell my customers).
It also makes you cry, but let's ignore that Laugh | :laugh:

How will the people of the future ever start a new business (or get an email address for that matter)? OMG | :OMG:
