The Enigmatic Appeal of Project Names

Izenda

Of course you have already guessed that they are all code names given to projects, ones that eventually became well-known hardware or software. If you’ve worked for any amount of time in IT, you’ve most likely worked on a project that was given a code name.

You want your name to be easy to say and easy to spell.
