    Please rate this name idea for my gaming app.

    I am not an English speaker. Some things are difficult for me.

    What do you think about "quizber" as a name for a simple quiz app (games, puzzles and quizzes).
    What does quizber mean?

    Sounds good?
    Makes sense?

    Please give me your opinion.

    Thanks

    Please give me your opinion. Unnecessary. It's clear that's what you are asking us to do.

    Thanks. Unnecessary. Thank us after we help you, by clicking on the "Thank" button.
    Please note my corrections and comments above.

    The word "quizber" means absolutely nothing in English. That's not a problem for an app, though. You can call it whatever you like! It sounds OK. It has the word "quiz" in it so it would be clear that it's a quiz app. That much, at least, makes sense.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thank you for your corrections above.

    Does the name "quizber" suggest any humor? Any sensation? What would a native speaker feel when reading the word "quizber"?

    I don't like it. It doesn't sound very good to me, and it doesn't make a lot of sense. What are you trying to do with the '-ber' part?

    Hi,
    Thank you for your considerations.
    We Just trying to find a complement to the word Quiz. We need to use a name that is still unused. We were trying something simple and fun.


    Maybe QuizLix?

    It's definitely not humorous. It doesn't make me feel anything at all. Adding "-ber" to the end of a word is not a common technique for making a title. It suggests nothing. All I would think on seeing "Quizber" and "QuizLix" would be "I guess it's a quiz app". I wouldn't really take any notice of the second syllable.

    Re: Please rate this name idea for my gaming app.

    How about "z!nb"?

    (I don't know how to read it. )

    (Edit) ... or "Quizzaland"?

    We could be here for weeks while you offer up title after title, all of which consist of the word "quiz" and something else. As far as I'm concerned, as long as it has the word "quiz" in it, you could use it. The only thing you'd need to check is that there isn't already another app with the same name.

    I love Quizber, with a capital Q.

    It's distinctive, it's simple, it's memorable, it has a playful sound, it's easy to spell, and it suggests the purpose of the app.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
