SNARK-HUNT


The IPKat has stumbled on a fascinating blog he ought to have known about before: Snark Hunting, the naming and branding blog. Run by the Igor Naming and Branding Agency, Snark Hunting takes a keen look at some of the more curious name- and brand-creation exercises that have recently come to light, including the naming of a Mexican airline as Click and the baptism of Innovene as a Chicago-based spin-off of British Petroleum. This blog offers some worthwhile insights as to why names are chosen (though not as to why businesses pay so much money for them).
