My wife and I were on a walk in the early fall. I was talking with her about the plugin I had been working on for a while, ValhallaChorus. The name wasn’t fitting the plugin anymore, as it was starting to enter the realm of the weird.

“How about ValhallaChorusPlus?” I asked my wife.

“Too wimpy,” she replied. “It sounds like something I would keep in my purse, next to my tampons.”

We threw a bunch more names out there, but none of them seemed right.

“How about ValhallaOverMod?” I suggested. The OverMod control had just been put into the plugin.

My wife responded, “How about ValhallaÜberMod?”

We both started cracking up. And thus the name was born.

My wife is a cool gal.
