Arla Foods took it a step further and worked with an external agency to develop a logo identity for their intranet named MyWorkPlaceUnlike websites which typically don’t have designated names, many intranets carry a special name that is used to brand the intranet. These names tend to stick and we’ve rarely heard of them changing, but if you don’t yet have a name for your intranet, what are the typical options?

As the below listing of intranet names around the world shows, there are many different types of names in use. Some of these names originates deep within the IT department where the intranet was born many years ago, while others are the result of a communication department or even an internal contest to find the best name.
