Some of these are not very original. There was a ping pong like game back in the 70s call Gnip Gnop. And Zazu was the bird in the Lion King that started the king's with a morning report of all he needed to know. Maybe the writer should do a bit more research into these things would writing an article.

When I hear the word "flux", I think of the paste that is put on wires or pipes to prepare them for soldering.

I don't know Jim, how many of us are going to forget the name WinoBot? :) Some could argue too that having a weird sounding name can make it memorable even if it doesn't roll off the tongue. I'd be curious to know what level of success some of these companies are having.

I was actually at the end there quoting the old Gnip Gnop commercial. You can still find it on YouTube.

We've been doing business with a company called "Jardogs". They build and host patient portals for medical providers.
Great product and great service.
Dumb name.
