We have these two new “friends” in need of clever and creative help, big time. They are both looking for suggestions from some helpful, creative people. Being the uber-helpful people that we at Smith Micro are, we figured that all of the creative people (you know who you are) who follow our blog might be able to help us to help those friends.
Basically, our friends are in need of two unique, cool first names, one for a man, and another for a woman. Locking down names they can be proud of, names they can share at cocktail parties and have monogrammed onto their socks, names that people will remember is their goal. The needy couple is open to hearing new crowd sourced names, in spite of the risk they face being pinned with something archaic like Archibald and Esmeralda. They are excited to hear what name suggestions you come up with. And so are we.
What we can do to make this process simple is publish a form where you can share your name ideas. We’ll go through and flag the ones that seem to fit and then let you guys vote on the names. Our friends are willing to live with this, and are actually quite intrigued about how this will ultimately work out.
Don’t let our friends down. Help us help them. Two new first names, that’s all we’re asking for.
