Current owner of the Atari trademark is actually a classic game company named Infogrames. I saw this logo in quite some games back in the day:

Yea I think I remember that logo or company.  Just kind of gets to me...  One would think it would be Infogames.  It is like whoever thought of name for company was suffering from dyslexia or infogames was already taken.

"The founders wanted to christen the company Zboub Système (which can be approximately translated to Dick System in English), but were dissuaded by their legal counsel.[3] According to Bonnell in a TV interview, they then used a mix-and-match computer program to suggest other names, one of which was "Infogramme": a portmanteau of the French words "informatique" (information technology) and "programme" (a computer program). The final choice, "Infogrames", was a slightly modified version of that suggestion."

I remember them mostly from C64 and Amiga days, though they'we published few games on PC that I've enjoyed quite a bit.
