    Do you think the word "Saculo" is easy to pronounce/remember? A friend and me are going to start a website about something and we wanted an easy to remember/catchy name. I came up with that.

    not so easy to pronounce, but I'm sure that I'll wonder what a saculo is by the end of the day =D

    i would pronounce it sah-coo-low. The name doesn't sound english but it is easy to remember and to pronounce.

    I agree with drkshinigami. It is a bit catchy. Good stuff.

    What kind of website are you making?

    While it isn't exactly hard to pronounce I bet some will mispronounce it . All in all its a great name for a site ( easy to remember, make you wonder what the meaning is etc.)

    We're making a site about something that has being asked countless of times on forums but doesn't have any website yet at all, so we're keeping it secret untill it's finished. It has to do with games though [​IMG]

    Keep posting your feedback on the name ^^

    I think you should base it on an already common word.

    its much harder to make a word from scratch than just piecing two together - thats if u want the word to stick.

    something like

    Squidle - squid
    Sobago - tobago



    feel free to dismiss this post

    No, it's not about the R4 [​IMG]

    My friend just bought the Saculo domain so I guess we'll stick to that name.

    Yeah, also in Italian. XD
    However it's not so easy to pronounce right for an english speaker but i think it's quite easy to remember. [​IMG]

    I doubt the majority of US people know that culo means arse. Probably a bit odd for Spanish & Italian people but oh well, you'll have to live with it [​IMG]

    We're designing a website structure at the moment (it'll be web2.0 so it isn't that easy) and we'll start coding this weekend most likely. The site will mainly target PC Gamers so probably not that interesting for a part of the people roaming around on GBAtemp We'll see how it goes ina few weeks ^^
