I'm launching a new venture soon and one of the big hurdles is a company name. That has all of us involved really struggling. We've been trying acronyms, combining the letters in our names, random foreign words, etc.
Anyone have a strategy they use to come up with good catchy names?

A thesaurus can be your friend for this. Search not only terms directly relating to your widgets, but also terms that can describe the quality and scope of your company and its mission. You may arrive at a winning multi-word name (one actually about the widgets and a cool-sounding adjective). Another recommendation is to look to the future. Naming a company for only what you do today may not encompass potential areas for expansion in the future.

The key is "be relevant". The name of the company should describe your product and your aim in a nutshell. For eg: take "java", it simply describes the product they are offering. nescafe could be another example.
