I'm making some kind of stock market, so what should I name the stocks?

Just use an api to get real company data or create 3 to 4 letter names

Stock names are usually 1 - 4 characters long and consist of letters of the alphabet along with numbers. Most stock names represent what the company you bought the stock from (e.g. Apple stock is called AAPL).
This is called a Ticker symbol system, and there are 1727604 unique names possible, more if you decide to use or create symbols.
