Lesson: Choosing a good name for your project, service or product is an important
pre-launch consideration because it signals that you understand the nature of where your
offering fits into the marketplace.

Selecting an awful name can hamper communication between you and potential customers or clients.
You’ll spend a lot of  time explaining, which will make little difference because of the elephant in the room…
that name. Even worse,  it’s difficult to be inspired or innovate, or see and imagine possibilities
for your idea when the elephant has a turkey of a name.

Sometimes, a naming issue may signal lack of marketing skill or it may be a warning that the idea was poorly thought out and should be re-evaluated.
