    Naming new company

    I am in the process of launching a new website and I can't think of a name to use.

    Everything I think of is either taken or when free I change my mind

    Anyone have any good ideas?

    Also to people who already have a company, what did you do to get that name?

    Consider following when deciding new name:
    1) Short
    2) Easy to pronounce
    3) Easy to remember
    4) Brandable

    Has Ravi stated,

    Keep it short and easy for your audience to remember.

    Also keep the name in mind, when you start thinking about the logo & design.

    Not to many people will promote ideas to this topic because what ever they have to suggest most times it a good name which most times they don't even share with anyone because they don't want anyone taking their name or idea.

    It took me a while to pick a company name that will make me feel at home. The name I choose if luxuryservers I would like for my clients to feel like they are out on vacation at a hotel. We make sure to make out customers experience feel as smooth as possible without any errors or problems with our services.

    Make sure that the domain name for the name you choose is free. Try using a name that a customer can relate to the product you're selling.

    Our name came from life inspiration. Our other company name relates to our work and seo.

    everything in life has pros and cons
    what you're about is discussed under: trademarks, brand naming and domain names
    you have two routs:

    - genuine name (ex: mozilla, google, yahoo, twitter, pepsi, cocacola, godaddy)
    It will have one main condition: not used ever before in business as a name of product/service/company

    - descriptive name (ex: web hosting talk, hotmail)
    It will have one main condition:
    not used - this exact - ever before in business

    - hybrid name: mix between a meaningful, related name, coined with another name, and both forming a (new brand name), never used or thought about before (silverlight, hotmail, servervault, wirenine, 24live, 7x24something)

    Difference is:
    - Genuine: easy to get registered as trade mark in US, and to win any dispute over it
    - Descriptive: hard to register - (R) symbol - , but easy to find online and remember "at beginning". but after a while, with marketing the newly born mark, only marketing efforts, customer-ship, and market presense will be the only factor of getting the "mind share" of market segments of consumers.

    - Hybrid: having both pros and cons of both.

    I used to read many great articles on http://www.nolo.com regarding such issues.

    Given the section, I suppose you mean a hosting company, right?
