[EN]: Since the launch of the gaming console by Microsoft, the word Xbox has been stuck in the mind of gamers. However, it took lots of discussions and persistence by a team at the company to make Xbox the name of choice.

For the name of the console, there were many ideas. Many names did not survive the list of Microsoft “Bunduss” (aka lame) names, but a list of thirty suggestions did survive. At least Xbox triumphed over 11-X.

Here’s the complete list made. Also, read the story posted on Edge called The Making of Xbox [http://www.edge-online.com/features/the-making-of-xbox/].

Q: Is any of these names better than Xbox? If yes, which one?
