What's a Daption?

As mentioned before, a Daption is a bird native to the South Ocean. It's also known as a Cape Petrel or a Cape Pigeon. It's a pretty common seabird, but it's still pretty nice looking.

Of course, I had no idea that there was a bird called a Daption. I picked it because I was thinking of Adaptive Clothing and Adaptation and Adaptive Fashion and Adoption and the word Daption seemed like a unique way of alluding to those items while also being unique.

And the URL was available, which was a nice bonus.

I also liked Dapt. And Dapt.com is pretty crisp. But the URL wasn't available. And other people told me that it sounded too "harsh" for what I was trying to do.

Having named a lot of things in my career, I know how hard it can be. So when it feels right you should go with it. Daption felt right.
