Want to buy a product online? Go to Cadaver.com. Wait, it’s
Cadabra.com. Shoot, I actually mean Amazon.com.

Jeff Bezos, the founder of online retail giant, Amazon.com, originally
wanted to call his company Cadabra. However, after some consumer

cadaver. As a result, he searched for a new name. He decided on Amazon
after the world’s largest river and because in an alphabetical list,
Amazon would be near the top, if not the top, of the list.
