Thanks for your comments on this question.  Here's the promised follow-up.

We are a firm of patent attorneys.  Most of our business comes from
filing and prosecuting patent, trademark and design applications
(commonly known as 'Intellectual Property' or IP) for our clients,
both in Europe and throughout the world.  We will shortly be adding to
our website a facility for clients to be able to view their own
patent, trademark and design records, for cases that we are handling,
What we need is a good, snappy-but-professional brand name that we can
use with this service.  Ideas so far include IPView and IPVista, but
I'm sure you can do better!  Shorter names are better; and please
remember they must be suitable for a professional firm.  You need not
check trademark or domain name availability for your ideas, but please
don't copy any names you already know of.
I'll accept as an answer at least 15 good-quality names. 

Please let me have a few starting with the letter K.

Hi manchester,

Okay, I went the international route, giving you names taken from
Scandinavia, Greece, India, and the Baltics.  A little out in left
field but I hope a few catch your fancy.



KnowPro or KnoPro






KatanaIP (fighting sword of Japanese samurai)

KellionPro (community of monks?)

KevalinIP (omnicient)

KalevaPro (hero)

KoshaIP (the five selves; from the Upanishads)

KarelianIP (Karelian bear dogs; nice doggies)

KestrelIP (falcon)

and the dreaded Knights of IP

If these are too *out there*, I'd be glad to take another crack at it.
 Thanks for allowing us this fun project.

Warm wishes,

You are rather brilliant when it comes to providing good-quality
names. Indeed, all of your new ones are superb, especially KarmaPro,
KatanaIP, KalevaPro, and KoshaIP.

I'm tempted to include a few of my own, but after seeing what the
master has done, I think it's best if I just continue rereading your
splendid list of names with enraptured eyes. lol

Ah, I would've given you 5-stars and a generous tip!

Gee thanks, Sian.  These questions are my favorite since they show a
researcher's creative side.  I would nominate our j_philllip in the
brilliant department with the name-my- _____ questions.  He's the best
we have, IMO.

Words starting with "K" were especially difficult.  It's a funny
consonant -- but at the end of words, not the beginning. ;-)  I went
far afield because I figured no one would go there, but you just never
know what will appeal to the client. Finding something topical to the
business was challenging since most
K-words dealt with knives/blades/Japanese swords, Greek or Finnish
terms, or Hindu gods/principles.  I chose those that sounded the best
when speaking them and those, I thought, had relevancy.  Okay, maybe
not the KellionPro, even though patent attorneys have a cloistered
side -- I just liked the sound of it.  Also, I believe "Kestrel" may
be trademarked for a company that makes bicycles (?).

Thanks to manchester for the opportunity to play,

Lord, he's gonna kill me -- our best of the bunch is j_philip (just
one "l").  Hey, Googlies, can we get an edit key already?

Greetings again, manchester

Sorry, I didn't see your additional instructions here:

Clarification of Question by manchester-ga on 19 May 2003 14:53 PDT 
Another bit of jargon, in case it helps.  We will tell clients that
the system will enable you to 'track your portfolio of cases'.  So,
perhaps track, view, case, record, portfolio, IP, patent may be useful
words.  But don't feel restricted to those. We really need your
imagination here!

so I've added a few more:













Done, done, overdone,

p.s.  How dare I forget the distaff brilliance of Pinkie on these
questions.  I'm so ashamed {hangs head}.

Sian:  Now cut that out!  Thanks for the "unorthodox" label.  Usually
I just get the generic "weird.: ;-)  Indeed, I go out there on a limb
but that's where the action is.  Never be afraid to take a chance.
I've embarrassed myself in the process more times than I can count. 
Oh well.

I'll always taken a shot at these naming questions if I know anything
about or am interested in the topic.  I've worked for attorneys before
so I know a little about the terrain.  One has to be in the right mood
to play when these questions come up, but I'd rather have the client
choose which he prefers.  Manchester approached this in a very
equitable way towards all who wanted to participate.  You never know
what great names are waiting in the wings.

I kinda liked "ProVisto."  It was short and continental sounding.

So, do you pronounce your name Sian (is believin')?

Manchester:  Thanks for the bonus Q and I'm sorry I didn't see your
instructions sooner.  Any kind of guidelines you can give a researcher
to point us in a certain direction is always appreciated.  I hope your
experience with Google Answers has been a pleasant one and we look
forward to your business in the future.

Be well you two, namaste
