There are many, but I'm blanking on most of them. A recent one however would be YouTube's branding of their paid service as YouTube Red.


Yes! This! I was on the other red youtube last night.



What geniuses decided Youtube Red was a solid name?



"Well, this video site called 'Redtube' gets a lot of hits, maybe we should brand it 'YouTube Red', people seem to like 'Red'"

My mother has an Indian classmate named Harry Fuch (pronounced Fuck). My dad also had a kid named Lemonjello and his brother later called Orangejello. I can tell how the two children were conceived.

As one late-nite comic put it during the big celebrity hype over Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie having their little daughter Shiloh:

"Y'know, it might not be the smartest idea in the world to send a kid into high school with the name of Shiloh Pitt? It might get mixed up."

What's wrong with Skynet?

Also, I heard that a new Transformers character was scrapped because it was going to be called Spastic. Clearly they didn't think that through

SKYNET is the computer program Cyberdyne Systems creates in the Terminator franchise.
Its basically a military super computer that becomes self aware and begins acting according to its own survival, destroying nearly all human life in the process .

Isis.

I stand by the opinion that it's a nice sounding name.

Skynet is a reference to the Terminator Franchise, where Skynet doesn't watch over humans since it destroyed human society by setting off a nuclear Armageddon.
