We enjoyed Step Two’s blog post on “Three views of intranet names“. The three companies discussed named their intranets “Max“, “EON” (acronym for ‘Entertaining Opportunity Network’) and Buzz.

It made me think about the names that various ThoughtFarmer customers have used for their intranets.

Here are a few that we find interesting:

Intranet name ThoughtFarmer Customer
Spike Guardian News & Media
Orange Continuum
The Tube IDEO
our.outreach Penn State University Outreach
The Amp Sudler & Hennessey
Scrum Myriad Mobile
Mondo Mountain Equipment Co-op

Many of our customers simply name their intranet “Intranet”, as in “Acme Intranet“. Others do a take-off on the company name, such as “myAcme“.

Here are some other ideas for naming your intranet.
