    SkyDrive had a nice ring to it but I guess BSkyB had other ideas. An apparent preview is available too.

    As names go, OneDrive doesn't seem too bad, hopefully MS did its due diligence and made sure this name is ok

    They need to add a product called TwoDrive.

    Then RedDrive and BlueDrive.

    One.com might protest against this name. Microsoft might have to change it to something else as One.com does cloud storage.

    I think one and onedrive are different enough. Oh one.com may try to extract some money via a lawsuit but I think MS did even more due diligence in this go around and probably feel very confident.

    Sounds like a perfectly acceptable alternative name for SkyDrive. Fantastic service regardless of the name.
