April 19, 2021

When picking a project name, a couple of things spring to mind. Firstly, you want to make sure that whatever you choose is memorable.

We have complied a list of the most popular sources for inspiration and include examples to get you going.

Cool project names

Let’s start with names inspired by the likes of your favorite music or childhood comic books. Example categories include:

1. Superheros

We all love superheroes. They represent strength, power and are known for beating the odds.  Options include names like Deadpool, Wolverine, Thos and Iron Man.

2. Villains

Unconstrained by rules and obligations and under no illusion that they are anything but evil, villains are really just broken heroes. Consider no-nonsense names like Joker, Voldermort, Thanos and Krueger.

3. Gods

Gods communicate energy and the supernatural. Options include names like Zeus, Poseidon, Hera, Mars and Apollo.

4. Mythology

Legendary figures and mythological creatures remind us of our childhood and make us dream. Great project names include the likes of Phoenix, Atlantis, Minotaur or Medusa.
