oooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!! Names inspired by “yahoo”

Knock-offs are expected when it comes to handbags, but brand names? How about some integrity. This is a pretty impressive list of companies that weren’t so inspired. Rather inspired by the recognizable double “oo” a the end of Yahoo! I think memorability is best when it’s individual. What company wants to be known or remembered as a knock-off? I think each of the company’s below need a shot in inspiration.

    I can say with 100% certainty that’s name did not derive from Yahoo. The mere presence of two ‘O’s’ is not an indication of its root. But it is a fun little list, no doubt.
