If you heard about Apple's big announcement yesterday for their super duper new tablet through some awesome liveblog or something, you might've been a little underwhelmed by the name choice. Some of you may have even gone so far as to imply the name sounds a bit like a feminine hygiene product, in which case congratulations: you and 3 million other people on the internet were in sync for several hours.

But it got us thinking: with a name as corny (and prone to horrible monologue jokes from that grinning idiot hosting that show we'll never watch again) as iPad, what options did Apple pass up?

  • iTouché
  • iWantedAniPhone
  • iNeedMySpace
  • iNeverLovedYou
  • iHaveTooMuchDisposableIncome
  • iChabodCrane
  • iDitarod
  • iAmIamIamISaidIWannaGetNextToYou
  • iRape (the broccoli-like vegetable, not the horribly violent sex crime)
  • iFlat
  • iDropAppleStock
  • iFail
  • iTouch Grande
  • iCan'tUseThisStandingUp

Sure, some of those names are worse than iPad, but I personally like the sound of iTouch Grande. What would you have called Apple's new Tablet?

It's not a MaxiPad, it's a super-sized IPod touch ... therefore, MaxiPod.

Simply iTab or iTablet would not have been so bad.

Love iCan'tUseThisStandingUp. How frustrating!

Since it sounds like a feminine hygiene product, anyway, let's go with iPon.
