just wondering, does anyone know the origin of the name Spotify? it sure seems to roll off the tongue, but does anybody know why this service recieved the name?
Check out my backstage interview
Co-founders Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon were brainstorming ideas for a name. Martin said something and then Daniel misheard it as "Spotify". They decided they liked that name.
The official answer from Daniel Ek can be read here:
PS: I am not ignoring your PM. I'll be replying back soon. :)
That's so cool! I love hearing stories like that, about major companies and the little things that got them started. Thanks for the info!!
