The Point of the Business Name

Quite frankly, if you look around, you see a million company names. All different, all unique. I read the local paper one day (a rare occurrence) and saw an article about technology company names. The overall theme was that, there is no real rhyme or reason as to what names are made up of.

Take Google for example. It is just a rip-off of the number Gogol. Granted, it is catchy, but still, what is the point? There isn't one.

Now, most websites are using a period after their names. Until this stops, I am putting one on the end of my site's header. There was, of course the whole "i" phase, and the "e" idea. Both of those were before my time. Anyway, that is just one protest against humanity, or at least the business end.
