LMK: What does it even mean? (those crazy developers …)

What is LMK? When we first started developing LMK App, we wanted to come up with a clever, simple name that would be recognizable. Naming the app turned into a grueling two month long process Recommended Reading. Everything we wanted was either already taken or a name none of us could come to an agreement on. Finally, we all settled on LMK App because “LMK” is something we use all the time in the office. It was a “no duh” moment for us – why hadn’t we thought of it sooner?

Turns out, a lot of people don’t know what LMK means. Sigh, oops. So, just for fun, I Googled “what does LMK mean?” and YAHOO! Answers gave me a few interesting results:

  • LMK = Let’s Milk Cows
  • LMK = Luigi in Mushroom Kingdom
  • LMK = Lost My Kinkajou (BTW a kinkajou is a rainforest mammal)
  • LMK = Lol My Ko

Although those are some clever interpretations of the acronym, that’s not the usual definition of LMK. LMK actually stands for “Let Me Know”. It’s a fairly common text message acronym. Makes a little bit more sense now, huh? Despite popular belief, we didn’t blindly choose strange letters and put them together, we did it on purpose!
