This is a contest for a company name. No logo, no graphics, nothing but a simple name.
About the company:
I run a sole propietorship in Sweden. It's a legally a one man company but I work together with tons of people. I take on big projects and in turn hire programmers, artist, sound designers on a project basis. On my own, but more often, together with others, I make web sites, apps for iOS and Android, games and e-books. My current company name is by default the same as my First Name + Last Name, which is not very catchy. I of course have a website for all my projects, which is all good, but it has grown from a personal site to a company site, and its URL spelling is hard for Swedes to get right on the first try.
So here are my guidelines for choosing a contest winner:
1) It has to be easy to pronounce and to spell (especially for Swedes). My current URL involves the word Chromatic and most people miss out the letter H when spelling it.
2) The name has to be available as either a .se or .com address. Bonus points if both are available.
3) Open for change of business. By this I mean that it shouldn't trap me in a certain category. Apple, Blizzard, Valve, Grafeio are all good since they would be able to change their business. IBM personal computers&amp;amp;quot; would be a bad example. I have added skills and I'm sure I will adapt in the coming years by possibly adding e-commerce to my company or remove e-books which isn't going super well.
EDIT: I've rated most entries and have found that I really prefer the anonymous sounding names. If you can make up a new word that sounds good, makes you think of digital creation and is easy to spell, I think that's the way to go.
Let me also iterate: The name has to be available as either a .se or .com address. Bonus points if both are available. Most of the entries are already taken as domain names.
