Worst name of all time is RVCA. If you wanted your company to be pronounced “ROOKA” MAYBE CALL IT FUCKING ROOKA. WHAT FUCKING SOUND DOES V MAKE? Genuinely makes me mad all these years later. R-v-c-a sounds way better than fucking rooka too

I feel like if baker came out now they would be clowned for having that name, but since they've been good for over 2 decades now it's actually hella sick.

Dirty ghetto kids was great for the time.

Passport is a cool name too. I don't know if there is any meaning behind it but I like the idea that a passport allows you to go places and so does a skateboard.

I don't get the "the heated wheel" as a name for a deck company. Love Neil and I know he's used that name before for other projects of his but I don't get it.

Free Dome might take the cake for worst name for me.

If you skate real fast your wheels heat up. Maybe that was obvious and you already knew that but just thought I'd say it, I think it's a cool name.

I think The Heated Wheel is just particularly odd since it references a specific skateboard part and how it reacts to speed/concrete despite them marketing a totally different part. It's like naming a clothing company The Rusted Bearing or naming your wheel company, Ground to the Axle wheels etc. It is creative but a little confusing too. I don't know I'm a fucking idiot.
[close]

Yeah thats kinda what I was getting at. I get that your wheels get hot skating but calling a board brand the heated wheel is weird to me. Also why is wheel singular? Does only one of Neil's wheels get hot. Name just seems weird.

Hot Wheels was already taken.

Perhaps not the best, but always liked Half Life's name, the same goes for Nicotine Wheels

Sheep shoes was a strange name, even though their team was fire.

Seek was originally going to be called Tekneat.

Also Daewon’s short-lived brand Artafact had a pretty terrible name.

So we got a good list here, we should make a poll and vote for the top worst name then.

snack is pretty cool. maybe it's because I like the brand. Blood Wizard is cool as well. I love their graphics. I know we only discuss the actual name, but I associate them with something cool

It's hard to ignore the brand's image, I feel like zero should be bad, it's a single number for fucks sake, but I can't place it in bad.

pretty bad: Fucking Awesome (but just 'FA' is ok)
What I wanted to comment, maybe better than ok imo, while fucking awesome is so childish.

Hockey is cool but I'm oblivious to the sport so it's easier for me to think of it as a brand.

I'm surprised so many people hate the name fucking awesome. From a marketing perspective it's pretty genius
I thought most people thought it was cool and I just wasn't getting it
