What's in a Name

Juliet:
"What's in a name? That which we call a rose
By any other name would smell as sweet."

Why Aisleng?

Right, that's the question, why a name that's honestly kind of hard to pronounce. Why not something a little more catchy a little more, you know...just why that name?!

Well we have that name because it means something. It means something to us and it actually has a meaning. It's not just an arbitrary word that was plucked out of our crazy brains.

We chose that name because it's gaelic, the long forgotten Irish language. It's part of our heritage, our amazing grandmother was born and raised on The Emerald Isle, so the idea that we could name it something, to at least in a very small way, honor her was an amazing thought to us.

But it turns out it also fits what we are all about and what we love. It's the irish word for "dream or vision". Not in the sense of - I fell asleep at my computer today while developing and had the weirdest dream - no not that kind of dream. It means a dream as in a goal, a long sought after idea that has been brewing deep inside that needs to be acted on - that kind of dream.

And that's what we're all about, using our knowledge and technology to help others accomplish those dreams that they have.

Aisleng has been our dream for a long while, and we are working to make that dream a reality and we hope that we can do the same for others.
