The name. If you don't know something's name how do you know what to build?

Naming a project is kinda like creating a character in a RPG video game. It takes forever.

If you like Foghorn Leghorn, name your character "I say".

Thanks, @elmuerte I don't think I would spend time on name before starting something

Before people are taking my original response too serious, it's a joke. It is a reference to the Dilbert animation series from a long time ago. Episode 1: "The Name". I was quoting the PHB (Pointy Haired Boss). He had his presentation backwards (back when they used overhead projectors instead of powerpoint presentations) and "Step 1: the name".

Of course one of the first steps when working on something is to come up with a name. You cannot start working on "untitled" every time. But it is just a name. You can always change it later to something more suitable.
