When picking a project name, a couple of things spring to mind. Firstly, you want to make sure that whatever you choose is memorable. Secondly, it goes without saying that your given name should not disclose any deal related information. If you are on the hunt for a new project name, look no further. 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:
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.
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.
Gods communicate energy and the supernatural. Options include names like Zeus, Poseidon, Hera, Mars and Apollo.
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.
