According to rumours, the name Accolade was not coincidence. Founders Alan Miller and Bob Whitehead apparently named their company Accolade because it came before Activision alphabetically, a company they had founded and left, inferring that Accolade was superior to their previous company. Apparently when forming Activision, they chose that name because it came before Atari. Later, a new game development company, Acclaim apparently formulated their name because it came before Accolade.
