I prefer the following workflow: 1. Brainstorm with friends. 2. Benchmark validity - knowem.com - spyfu.com keyword search - ask customers of different nationalities/languages to spell it after they hear you say it. 3. Cover up half the word and see if the user can guess it. 4. Can the users guess what the app is for? 5.... (curoius to hear other people's methodologies here.)

I love Wordoid! I use it before I start any project to drum up name ideas.

@erictwillis I created a much crappier version of this in the 90's. 😀 Brings back memories. Unfortunately I don't have a copy of it.

@nikkielizdemere Was it crappy enough to make Product Grunt? I have a project from the 90s that is still live on the web. It's really crappy.

Shows domains as available that were registered years ago... bug?
Oleg PodolskyMaker@ompodolsky · Founder, Wordoid
Wordoid shows false positives sometimes. This happens due to the way Wordoid checks for domain name availability, which is 99% accurate, in exchange for high speed. The domain names that were shown as available probably don't have a nameserver record configured for them. If you don't mind, please send me (oleg.podolsky@wordoid.com) your incorrect results, and I will double-check them.
