    Resource Name Change

    It's really hard to let go of something you are so used to, something that's been part of your life for so long but we all know that names matter, that it's what makes or breaks something. And it's long overdue we dropped my name from this resource. It's not about me and it was never meant to be, it just something that happened but it's about time we change that.

    We are toying with the idea of calling this place FITGUR. It's short, it's simple and it's fun. Before we make any drastic irreversible changes we wanted to run it by you first. How do you feel about it? Imagine one day login in and it's no longer neilarey.com but fitgur.com

    Disclaimer: everything else stays the same, same set-up and same people we just feel that it's about time we de-crowned me

    This decision really honours you neilarey and shows once again the kind of person you are.
    About the name, I really love the idea that lies behind, as Damer explained it in his post. But it sounds a little funny (maybe because I'm french?), like bulgur... I would jut add a "u" = FitGuru...Makes more sense to me and still short and fun.
    It's just my first impression, please don't hate me :lol:

      Thank you Sarasta
      No-no, your opinion matters very much, thank you for sharing it. We are not really into the whole guru thing (heh, or anyone calling themselves one), we are looking for a place, a home if you will. A place that will be yours as much as ours. And it certainly shouldn't have my name - it's just something we ended up with because I started this whole thing and it was originally my personal blog.

      So we know we need to change the name. We are not 100% settled on FITGUR yet but we are 90% there. It's really difficult to find an easy to remember short name with an available domain name. Fitgur is already ours, for example. We don't mind if it sounds just a little bit weird - a little bit of weird is a good thing

            Maybe I need time to let NR go , I could need a farewell ceremony to accept this new name Whatever the name this place will still be my number one and I'll try to drag in as much people as I can.
            Speaking of weird and fun how came you didn't choose Fitgeek :lol:

                Fitgur seems fine to me. :cool: There is no other one I can think right now. Fitgur like Imgur NR becomes FG.

                  Although we are geeks we don't want to isolate anyone who isn't so we can't use anything "geeky" in the name. Plus, anything that makes sense will mostly likely be already registered ( http://www.checkdomain.com ). We want it to be short and sweet, easy to remember and difficult to mistype (ha ha, Neila Rey, aka Neil Aray, Neila Ray, Neela Ray).

                  lovlesh if we can be even half as awesome as Imgur that'll be great

                    The only potential issue I see is that people might very well assume ties to imgur. I don't know if that would cause issues down the road.

                      I would rather stick with FitGuru - Fitgur just doesn't make sense for me (could you explain what gur means?). And how about Easyfit? I would correspond with site motto

                          Fitgur sounds cool to me. It sounds catchy, like "hey! have you checked Fitgur lately?" A Two-syllable name works well and it has a logical spelling. I don't get the meaning behind it, no idea what "gur" is, but hey, they're words, we can make them mean whatever we want. So yay for movement! I hope this brings the team to the forefront of fitness!

                            I think its fine. Is gur short gor guru?
                            I was just joking with Sarasta about fitgeek

                              After a whole day of back and forth we are going back to the drawing board...
                              Firgur is too close Imgur and "gur" is too close to guru which we are not fond of. We are definitely changing the name, though, we just need to find the one that fits
