How To Name A Video Game Studio - And Hopefully Get It Right

Kotaku writes: "The decision to give something a name, whether that be your struggling rock band, your first dog, your only child, or your game development studio is no simple task. For better or worse, you might be stuck with it.

Names carry weight. They give a group of people and the products they create an identity. For companies like Sony, Nintendo, Microsoft, Sega and others, those names are associated with memories, even if those words have little meaning."

The story is too old to be commented.

Picking the wrong name is insti-kill to make someone not check your product out. :/

I think Infinity Ward is pretty cool. But the best ones are Insomniac, Epic Games, and Guerilla.

Good article. To me Harmonix is the coolest studio name. I'm not really sure why, it just sounds cool to say lol

I love a good funny name.

I think High Voltage sounds tight.

Interesting comment about Sega being a combo of 'service' and 'games' shortened. Simple, too. Interesting history behind Insomniac and HMX. Good read.
