Why Quoakle?

You are probably wondering why the name Quoakle?
In September 2006 when the first part of the directory was launched we were using the name Gardening Pixels and were going to follow up with Restaurant Pixels. On the advice of our intellectual property solicitor we started looking for a unique brand name. There were some pretty unusual ideas from Orange custard to Blue pipes to Yoakle…Stoakle…Zoakle. If you live in Gloucestershire you might spot the connection with Oakle Street, a small hamlet west of Gloucester.
It was Nigel’s sister that came up with the final name we settled on … QUOAKLE, and the rest is history!
