    Product name meaning

    Hi,


    I want to name a new product iRelay but I'm not sure if it doesn't give a wrong impression. It's suppose to be and "intelligent" (like the i in iPhone) relay (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Relay) but I don't know if it gives the idea of "I relay" (the verb).


    And I'm not sure if this is how I should pronounce it: http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/relay (second option).


    I really appreciate any help.


    Thanks.

    I think you want to make sure there is no copyright problem first.

    We already check. Now we need to know if that combination make sense or the idea gets lost or confused for english-speakers and our english is not good enough, as you can see.

    It seems the same as iPhone (I phone) to me. There was no confusion with iPhone. :)
