Aren’t languages fun? If this company had called themselves Stumble, or even Stumble On, it would not have been nearly as positive as the name Stumble Upon. In fact stumble, by itself, usually has real negative overtones. But with a simple tweak – or a different English usage – and a magically simple name results.Unfortunately this name also occurs quite a lot in common English as well, which is why it didn’t score our full 10 points. And yes, they have applied for the registered trademark on the name.And a very nice little logo so they can use it as navigation moniker too. Clean, modern and
 
professional, without being too stuffy. Visit the great new way to wander around the world wide web at www.stumbleupon.com
