    Yahoo!
    The word was invented by Jonathan Swift and used in his book Gulliver's
    Travels. It represents a person who is repulsive in appearance and
    action and is barely human. Yahoo! founders Jerry Yang and David Filo
    selected the name because they considered themselves yahoos.

    Xerox
    The Greek root "xer" means dry. The inventor, Chestor Carlson, named his
    product Xerox as it was dry copying, markedly different from the then
    prevailing wet copying.

    Sun Microsystems
    Founded by four Stanford University buddies, Sun is the acronym for
    Stanford University Network.

    Sony
    From the Latin word 'sonus' meaning sound, and 'sonny' a slang used by
    Americans to refer to a bright youngster.

    SAP
    "Systems, Applications, Products in Data Processing", formed by four
    ex-IBM employees who used to work in the 'Systems/Applications/Projects'
    group of IBM.

    Red Hat
    Company founder Marc Ewing was given the Cornell lacrosse team cap (with
    red and white stripes) while at college by his grandfather. He lost it
    and had to search for it desperately. The manual of the beta version of
    Red Hat Linux had an appeal to readers to return his Red Hat if found by
    anyone!

    Oracle
    Larry Ellison and Bob Oats were working on a consulting project for the
    Central Intelligence Agency (CIA). The code name for the project was
    called Oracle (the CIA saw this as the system to give answers to all
    questions or something such).

    Motorola
    Founder Paul Galvin came up with this name when his company started
    manufacturing radios for cars. The popular radio company at the time was
    called Victrola.

    Microsoft
    It was coined by Bill Gates to represent the company that was devoted to
    MICROcomputer SOFTware. Originally christened Micro-Soft, the '-' was
    removed later on.

    Lotus
    Mitch Kapor got the name for his company from the lotus position or
    'padmasana.' Kapor used to be a teacher of Transcendental Meditation of
    Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

    Intel
    Bob Noyce and Gordon Moore wanted to name their new company 'Moore
    Noyce' but that was already trademarked by a hotel chain, so they had to
    settle for an acronym of INTegrated ELectronics.

    Hewlett-Packard
    Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard tossed a coin to decide whether the
    company they founded would be called Hewlett-Packard or Packard-Hewlett.

    Hotmail
    Founder Jack Smith got the idea of accessing email via the web from a
    computer anywhere in the world. When Sabeer Bhatia came up with the
    business plan for the mail service, he tried all kinds of names ending
    in 'mail' and finally settled for Hotmail as it included the letters
    "html" - the programming language used to write web pages. It was
    initially referred to as HoTMaiL with selective upper casings.

    Google
    The name started as a jockey boast about the amount of information the
    search-engine would be able to search. It was originally named 'Googol',
    a word for the number represented by 1 followed by 100 zeros. After
    founders - Stanford graduate students Sergey Brin and Larry Page
    presented their project to an angel investor, they received a cheque
    made out to 'Google

    Cisco
    The name is not an acronym but an abbreviation of San Francisco. The
    company's logo reflects its San Francisco name heritage. It represents a
    stylized Golden Gate Bridge.

    Apple Computers
    Favourite fruit of founder Steve Jobs. He was three months late in
    filing a name for the business, and he threatened to call his company
    Apple Computers if the other colleagues didn't suggest a better name by
    5 o'clock.

    Apache
    It got its name because its founders got started by applying patches to
    code written for NCSA's httpd daemon. The result was 'A PAtCHy' server -
    thus, the name Apache.

    Adobe
    The name came from the river Adobe Creek that ran behind the house of
    founder John Warnock.
