    Hey all,
    I am currently in the process of creating a web app in the social recruitment web space. I am going back and forth with two names and would like your feedback.

    The first name is nukazi, kazi in swahili means work and I added the nu on the front. My aim here was something new and fresh and unique and still fitting within the web 2.0 theme. A few people have brought up the fact that it doesn't scream the idea but my thought is neither did Hulu or Etsy or alot of websites before you googled their names.

    The second name is JobsBuddy. This name is a bit more literal and definitely speaks to the product literally while also having good search potential.
    Please vote and give your feedback!

    (Update: For some reason I couldn't add more options to the poll so if you like both or neither please let me know as well)

    Neither, to be honest with you. Nukazi reminds me of Kwazii from my daughter's Octonauts cartoon, and JobsBuddy sounds childish.

    Call it Social Job Search or something. Hard to come up with an alternative without knowing what your app actually is or does.

    thanks for the reply, I will keep your suggestions in mind! hmm did I post in the wrong forum or are people generally just not interested in giving their opinion? I thought I would receive more votes/replies on 20+ views...

    I'd say you've got the right forum, but again, this is where the details would come into play. People may not be willing to offer up an opinion because they don't know that much and don't want to be told they're wrong.

    That, and a lot of forum users are lurkers by nature, so you don't usually get a high percentage of feedback and discussion in general as a result.

    I understand, unfortunately I can't give up many details as the idea is still in progress, all I can say is it will be a social networking experience to better match people looking for jobs and employers. Im not looking for a marketing expert to pick a name, just wondering which would entice people more to want to use a product. I am just looking to get the opinion from your everyday average consumer on which name sounds more appealing to them.

    I hear you. You don't want to tip your hand too early. I get that.

    What I would suggest for your particular case is to wait until your idea is at least close to launch so people can see it and offer an opinion. If you want volume of opinion from which to make a decision, it's pretty much your best bet.
