Thanks for all the great discussion on naming my company.

To continue the discussion, here’s my reasoning behind two names that I like most so far.

nimbol – a misspelling of "nimble," which means:

  1. Quick, light, or agile in movement or action; clever, and acute in devising or understanding.

To me, this is the essence of a savvy solopreneur. The misspelling? Well, what can I say except that nimble.com is taken. And besides, there’s something interesting to me about walking outside the lines.

quicksotic – a misspelling of quixotic, which means:

  1. Caught up in the romance of noble deeds and the pursuit of unreachable goals; idealistic without regard to practicality.

The "quick" part of the word aligns with the "nimble" explanation above. As far as the definition of quixotic, you probably see it as a negative, but frankly, it defines a big part of my personality (for better or worse).
