Google. Blame Google.

Search strings? Like, if you want to advertise or get a program/project out there, you need both unique and user/school/accountant safe search terms. Else you end up losing out to filters.

While Glimpse may not be a unique hit, it is not filtered. Take up the name with marketing if the new one is no good, but understand the old one may get blocked more often.
