"Segami Search" is an image search engine. I had to figure out a name which reflected that.

Naming websites is an art, these days, since most of the names are already registered. Some of the names were just registered, but no actual site existed.

No wonder, the current Web 2.0 companies, and search engines, seem to follow a trend of coming up with strange combination of letters, which had no meaning - but sounded catchy, which are purposely misspelled or from a non-english language.

I played around with a few words, their synonyms. After a lot of word combinations, came up with "Segami" which is "images" spelled backwards! And combined with "Search" was perfect as it reflected the core search paradigm, and sounded good.
