What’s With The Japanese Names?

Have you noticed that the names of start-ups are getting stranger and stranger! Anyway, Mike Li, co-founder of Sixth Sense popped in today, and he lamented, “We cannot use any English names, because most of the good ones are taken.” That explains why we are suddenly seeing an influx of Japanese names. I am currently using a massively cool “scrapbook-meets-note taker” product from Bare Bones Software called YoJimboYesterday, John Cook had blogged about Kasyaka, which is Japanese for home lifestyle. Interesting trend! Any meaningful Japanese names you can suggest for start-ups? says I might have limited vocabulary and of course learn how to misspell namez!
