Contest inspiration: the 10 most entered names in the contest so far

Contest inspiration: the 10 most entered names in the contest so far

Our farecard naming contest closes at midnight next Monday, November 8, 2010, so make sure to get your names in! An iPad, plus a year of free transit in 2013 could be yours for the taking.

So far, there are 30,000 entries in the contest, but don’t let this faze you. As you have probably guessed, lots of people have entered the same names, and there’s plenty of room for more.

As well, to possibly help inspire you, I did a bit of wrangling with Excel and hashed out a rough list of the most entered names in the contest. In no particular order, they are:

  • Green
  • Salmon
  • Coast
  • Orca
  • Whale
  • Totem
  • Otter
  • Canuck
  • Lobster
  • Go

Lots of single word wonders! Well, hopefully this will help get those creative juices flowing. Go opposite, go bigger, go smaller, pick something slightly similar but not the same. Remember, you can enter as many times as you like, so all the names you come up with are fair game.
