Interesting! This is exactly the path I ended up often going down - the pragmatism of a single word that is still available. This seems like a wider strategy in tech. I listened to a podcast with Patrick Collinson where he said that the way they come up with Stripe as company name was basically searching dictionary and domains for a single word that is still cheap to buy.
