  1. “Crunch”, I think. Then we just need to add a definition for the verb and we can “Crunch the numbers”, in the same way we “google” for things. It would probably have to be open source though, because of the likely problems with trademarking.

  2. I was amused by Number Buddy (“a contender for the name of the program that would
    ultimately be called Microsoft Excel”) because it sounds like a kid’s game, and because it’s similar to (but not as punny as) the name of my part-time consulting business, yoursumbuddy.
