There’s just no stopifying the relentless namifying juggernaut, is there? At least Trotify, a wooden device that makes your bike clop like a horse, “Monty Python-style” (according to Laughing Squid), doesn’t ask you to take name or product too seriously.
£19.99 + shipping (does not include coconut halves)
Also just for fun: a whole family of -ify apps from Appt.ly – yes, -ly names are also ubiquitous – that transform, or transformify, your iPhone photos: Oldify, Baldify, Fatify, Stache-ify, Browify, and Vampify.

I don’t get the appeal of My Little Pony even on a meta-meta-ironic level, but I am not you, and you, for all I know, may be a brony. In that case, knock yourself out with Ponify, a browser extension “which uses intelligent case-adaptive technologies to replace non-pony related words with ones that are pony-related” – hand into hoof, for example.
Then there’s Nüdifier, which is a twofer name: nominalized -ify suffix and gratuitous umlaut! The app lets you select an area of a photo for pixelated fake-nudity censorship.
See many, many more -ify names on The Name Inspector’s Pinterest Wall of Namifying. While you’re over there, check out my own stuff, including my Brand Names with Gratuitous Umlauts board and Names That End in -ly (132 133 of them!).
I can think of [number higher than I'd like to admit] instances when Ponify might have helped me editing MLP fanfic.

Related to Ponify, there's Cornify, which does not mean to make something corny, as you might expect, but to emblazon it with unicorns. The site seems to date from 2010. I found it when I was looking into the history of collocations such as "rainbows and unicorns," "rainbows and butterflies," and "butterflies and unicorns".
