Re: ছবিতে-কথায় নামকরনের ইতিহাস

চমৎকার শেয়ার! thumbs_up

এপারেন্টলি, ADIDAS-এর ক্ষেত্রে প্রতিষ্ঠাতা Adolf Dassler এর নামের প্রথমাংশ ডাকনাম দিয়ে শর্ট না করলেও খারাপ হত না - হত "ADODAS"। তবে ইন্টার্ণালী হয়তো এমন কোন সমস্যা ছিল এতে। কিংবা নামকরণে ইচ্ছা করেই আউট-অব-ট্র্যাক কিছু বেছে নিতে চেয়েছিল ওরা।

স্কাইপির ক্ষেত্রে ইন্টারমিডিয়েট morphed ভার্সণটিও খারাপ ছিল না- skyper, তবে "skype"-এর মত অতটা আদুরে লাগতো না হয়তো।

Walmart: ব্যাটা Sam Walton শব্দ ও ধ্বনির দিক থেকে বলতে গেলে দারুণ ম্যাচিং একটা নাম পেয়েছে।
