In case anyone missed it, one thing that Silicon Valley did really well was lampoon all the stupid names that people come up with for their companies. I love this clip about names from the show but what's missing is the goof on names ending in the letter "r" like "Grindr" "Jobr" or "Smlr" like they had fun with in the show.

People apparently don't seem to remember how woefully uncreative the "ly" name fad was and have become less clevr by creating yet another name fad that drops the "e" when it comes before "r".

I'm betting the next fad will be dropping the "e" in words ending in "ive" which would really be quite inventiv.
