Names are important to both people and companies. When a name is known and used, there is a marked difference in how thoughts are presented about that entity. Subsequently, when a name is used or said incorrectly, there is a problem as the identification is lost. On some level, it can even be seen as a lack of respect and shows a bit of carelessness.
The reason I bring this up is the continual spread of incorrect spellings of our company’s name and also the names of our software packages. Our company name is “EllisLab” where it is only one word. There is no ‘s’ on the end. What’s the difference, you might inquire? One is our company’s name and the other is not. Simple as that. We would like to be called by our actual name and not something else.
Same thing with ExpressionEngine and CodeIgniter. They are both a combination of two words that are put together to form the name of a piece of software. We have tried to be consistent with this for years now, but the message seems to have been lost along the way, so I am presenting it in a clearer form. Hope it helps.
