After going through my mind map, my ideas, the design rhetoric, goals and understanding the design values of the game, I want to choose my name for this game. The name for such games should be catchy, marketable and something that sells or connects with everyone in hopefully most contexts. For me, it should also reflect my own thought or my own identity.

With all these factors in mind, I started scribbling some ideas. I first used google translate and tried to use words from their languages for the word ‘Wonder’. Surprisingly, I never thought about languages from my own country. That’s probably because my languages are Kannada, Konkani, and Tulu which I would never use to describe the 7 wonders of the world or a rare word like ‘wonder’. However the other popular language from my country, Hindi (internationally at least) has a great word called ‘Ajooba’ which means wonder. So after trying all other options and languages, I decided to finalize on this. I added a trailing ‘A’ so that the name has 7 letters. Hence, I give you… AJOOBAA.
