God dammit!
Its so ducking hard, to come up with a unique name for your software.

    imagine your software as a person.
    Which attributes does he/she have?

    "Ducking" Is a sexually verbal word.

    I am officially offended /s

    If you can't type "fucking" properly, I'm sure you would never come up with a name, let alone a unique one

    I will be a package-manager for dotfiles and automated configuration of linux-systems.
    It aims to have more features than existing tools like homeshick and to be easily extendable by writing your own functionality.

    Use deity names from Indian, Turkish, Latin and other mithologies. Not Nordic thought it's way overused

    Just do it like Android and name it a dessert, animal, cloud formation or your favourite urologist's toy. 😄

    @PonySlaystation lol. Where did you pull that last thing from? (Pun intended)

    @CoffeeNcode 🤣
    Well it just happens to be my random-idea-and-joke-generator device, aliased as my brain. Not that I had any experience visiting an urologist...
    Great pun!

    (I find the general remarks of "pun intended" rather unnecessary, because it leaves the recognition of a well-versed pun to the readers cognitive ability) 😄

    There are two hard problems in computing: cache invalidation, naming things, and off-by-one errors.

    ok so here's how I do it:

    If it's a spinoff project, it's <original name>-<attribute i'm adding>, for example "GameYob-Accurate" (yes, that's one of mine)

    If spinoff of spinoff, say if I forked VBA-MM (VBA is garbage tho so I never would) it'd be VBA-<attribute> to keep naming consistent

    If original, it's probably a description of its purpose in 5 or less words, OR i give it a name from a now-dead game franchise (ex. "SOSETSUKEN Engine", which also is a thing I did)
