What “Gnarloc” Means
I (Garrett) get this question quite often. First, let me explain that it is pronounced “NAR-LOCK”. The name Gnarloc came from my past days of being a mobile application developer. In 2012 I was a mobile app development contractor and I was building mobile applications for the company I was contracting for at the time.
Well, I had a great idea for building a mobile app for the ski resort/action sports industry that was location-based. In addition, let me say that in the skiing and snowboarding community, the word “GNAR” gets used frequently in the terrain park. It’s basically just slang for “awesome”.
The name of the app I was going to create was going to be called “Gnarloc” — (Gnar) for being action sports involved, and (loc) because it was going to be a location-based app. I put them together and created the name Gnarloc.
So now that you know where the name came from, I’ll explain why I’m using it for this website. To make this short and sweet, the app ended up not working out. The budget ran thin on the project and I ultimately had to abort the project. But, I still had the website domain www.gnarloc.com and I had it purchased for the next 5 years. Since I wasn’t going to be creating an app with it, I decided to use the name for our product review site.
I understand it doesn’t mean much to everyday readers, and I don’t expect it to either. But, it is a unique name that you probably have never heard of before so I’m going for uniqueness here.
That’s the story behind “Gnarloc”.
