AIDEN

We loved that this entrant had focused on the AI search technology and ‘aid’, as in to help. With machine learning technology and the ability to help you find more with a single click.

FIN - (Find It Now)

This entry is an acronym for “Find It Now” but it is also French for “end”. We liked the association that you will end fruitless searches and easily and quickly find what you are looking for.

RAY DAR

A cool and quirky name that is a play on “radar”. It highlights that our new search easily detects what you need.
