Estelle Weyl on Twitter: "if taking a husband's name was really about minimizing confusion especially around children, of cis-hetero couples where only one changes their name, you would see 50% of men changing their names instead of 99+% women. It's sexis
“if taking a husband’s name was really about minimizing confusion especially around children, of cis-hetero couples where only one changes their name, you would see 50% of men changing their names instead of 99+% women.

“It’s sexism. Not convenience.”

Where Did All These Neighborhood Names Come From, Anyway? (and Why it Matters)
We might imagine that an authoritative, if long-forgotten, “official” map of Detroit’s neighborhoods exists somewhere. Perhaps the names and boundaries were agreed upon at some sort of naming convention that was held in the distant past. Or did Google just make them up? Do they ever change?

About Spanish Family Names
The family names are written without hyphen between them. However, the programmers of the software that runs most scientific literature databases do not take the Spanish naming convention into account. via Pocket

Falsehoods Programmers Believe About Names | Kalzumeus Software
John Graham-Cumming wrote an article today complaining about how a computer system he was working with described his last name as having invalid characters.  It of course does not, because anything someone tells you is their name is — by definition — an appropriate identifier for them. via Pocket

Don’t Call It That: Second Edition – ExtraCurricular Press
A workbook for naming your product, business, or brand. 

Your name is the tip of the spear.

It's the first thing people see and hear. It's your first shot at grabbing people's attention and arousing their curiosity. How are people supposed to talk about your new company if they can't remember or pronounce the name?

Contrary to popular belief, naming has nothing to do with omitting vowels. It has nothing to do with smashing letters together until you find an available URL that sounds like a Latvian powerlifter grunting. No, naming is a process. You'll need time. You'll need insight. You'll need to start on Page 1.

Don't Call It That is not a book about naming. It is a step-by-step workbook that walks you through the ins and outs of the naming process. This book is your best defense against awful company names and the people who find them "practical" and "functional." A Hundred Monkeys Creative Director, Eli Altman, will help you develop attention grabbing names that speak to your audience and establish the seed of your brand.
