Getting the X sound into a company or product name has actually been correlated with success, unbelievable though it sounds. So said a marketing class I was in a few years ago.

I've been waiting for the pads so I could combine that order with some of the little jars. Any idea when the jars will be back in stock?

Name Ideas/Feedback on 08/20/2012 22:31:31 MDT Print View

Nimblelight

Reduksoft

EvaAlpha

The Wanderer/The Fellwanderer (Fellwanderer is the title given to Wainwright, the great guidebook author whose name has become synonymous with the fells of the English Lake District)

Muirwarm/Muirwarmth

Highland Pad

Franconia Ranger


Also, I'll very likely be interested in purchasing a thicker version of the same pad, probably thick enough for winter use (would need an R value better than 2.2 and a weight less than 15 oz to beat my Thermarest Z-lite).
A torso or 3/4 length summer pad would also catch my interest.

The Dorminator (latin anyone?). Bonus points: no mention of the overused 'lite' suffix.



Adding to the comment about the usefulness of 'X' in a name with my 1st idea, how about the 'Dorminatrix'? No foreseeable problems with that, right?

Or, if you would like to advertise the warmth aspects, "Thermonator" or "Therminator"

As the holder of a marketing degree, I should be able to do better :(

More seriously though, using or combining geographical features or names of geographical regions and adjectives for warmth, rest, and lightness seem to be quite popular and the default solution to naming something. Rational differentiation in mainstream outdoor gear can be difficult these days, so emotional appeals are quite important to TNF or Columbia making another 3 in 1 jacket. It matters to niche mfgs too. Golite has the fortune of their brand name evoking a predetermined feeling about their gear no matter how accurate it is, so they throw a bunch of hyperbolic nouns and adjectives in their product names that don't need to involve lightness. Adrenaline, Ultra, Utopia, Quest, Jam, Rush, Shangri-La, all distinctively targeted towards the purchaser's perceived activities with each item. I'm actually quite impressed by it. Those are their hard goods. All their clothes have either specific (but obscure) or general landform or location names.

Never go too mainstream with your geographical entities though, for risk of sounding pedestrian to consumers who wish to feel very far in the loop. (I.E. Mountain Pad, or Everest anything unless you would truly use it on Everest). The 'list of landforms' on wikipedia could also be considered a partial list of outdoor manufacturers and products.

http://thesaurus.com/browse/heat
http://thesaurus.com/browse/light?s=t
http://thesaurus.com/browse/rest?s=t
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_landforms

Combing all these words into a rondomizing generator would produce lovely names like the "Dainty Valley Pad" or "Sleepy Spring Pad", aggressive names like the "Lava Lake Mat", or plain undesirable names like the "Dirt Cone Slumber Pad". I'm sure our creative members could have some fun with this.

don draper

"Well, technology is a glittering lure. But there's the rare occasion when the public can be engaged on a level beyond flash, if they have a sentimental bond with the product. My first job, I was in-house at a fur company, with this old pro copywriter. Greek, named Teddy. And Teddy told me the most important idea in advertising is "new". Creates an itch. You simply put your product in there as a kind of... calamine lotion. But he also talked about a deeper bond with the product: nostalgia. It's delicate... but potent. Teddy told me that in Greek, "nostalgia" literally means, "the pain from an old wound". It's a twinge in your heart, far more powerful than memory alone. This device isn't a sleeping pad. It's a time machine. It goes backwards, forwards. It takes us to a place where we ache to go again. It's not called Evazote. It's called the Sleep Tight Pad. It lets us sleep the way a child sleeps. Around and around, and back home again... to a place where we know we are loved."

Heh, that's awesome! just to build on that a bit and kitsch it up, Draper can be hopelessly serious, how about the SnoozeRite? Or SnoozeLite?

Or, how about, pointing to the only (very good) reason anybody wants foam: the NeverPop.
