Default Feedback for my game studio name: Badarse

Hi. I'm a mobile game/app developer.

I'm thinking of naming my new development studio Badarse and wanted to know what gamers think of the name? e.i. Badarse Games, Badarse Apps etc.

I'm particularly interested in what American's think of it as I think it would work well in the UK. Just not sure if it works across the pond too?

Any feedback please would be very welcomed!


P.S. Yes, I'm aware the correct term is Badass LOL

I have the domain name (.com) in reserve but no website yet.

Was waiting until I was 100% sure that Americans would like it too before building the website.

I don't like it and I'm a Brit. I can see it being less of a problem in the US as I think it's a less offensive term over there. It's like when I hear tw*t in a US sitcom.

(I'm not saying both terms are equally offensive, just that both are more offensive in the US than the UK.)

I'm from the uk but think its a bad name. I'm not offended by it but it just seems a pretty juvenile name

OK that's interesting. I didn't realise it was offensive.

I suppose my intentions are for it to be light hearted and not too serious but I hear what you are saying.

I like the name Rockstar Games. I want to have something that expresses an edgy development team if you know what I mean.

That's two brits with thumbs down! Not a good start lol.
Thanks for the feedback.

Anyone else's thoughts before I make a final decision to think again?

Worst name ever...

Not even close to "Rockstar games". Its a completely different thing.

When I hear the name "badass/badarse studios" I automatically assume that a bunch of douchebags work there and wouldn't even buy the app based on the development teams name.

Just my opinion though, I'm not trying to offend you or anything.
