Alright I have been through several different web designing companies and can't really think of a good one that floats my boat. Right now it is called Beechwood Web Design. It was Dildy Web design. Someone told me you must think really hard because the name will be for as long as you own the biz. If anyone has a suggestion, i would love to hear it. I mean i can't think of one. I know we have some really smart people out here with some creativity.

Thanks,

Chris Dildy

tough one..I am going into hosting myself and drove myself nuts trying to think of a name that wasnt corney

Finally I thought of one thing I wanted to get across to a visitor the instant they saw the name..I went to http://www.thesaurus.com/ and did a search on different words and their meaning...from that I got ..."Veracity"
(Veracity defined http://www.thesaurus.com/roget/IV/543.html)

So was born VeracityHosting ...yes you heard it here first

Im not done with the site but I have the layout down...good luck to you and take your time

What's with this Vera City Hosting? Don't people know that the Internet is global? Besides, where is this Vera City? I never heard of it!

"uh, Miss Latella, that's Veracity Hosting"


Never mind!

Good choice, Dana. I like the sound of it.

Of course, the most important thing is making whatever name is chosen stand for something worthwhile, and there have been too many companies with "good" names and lousy practices. However, as a statement of principle and philosophy rather than as a marketing term, Veracity Hosting has a nice appeal. Kudos.

Dana,

I hope I was being funny (humor, like beauty, and many other things, is in the eye of the beholder). I would have thought that using the late Gilda Radner's comic character would have indicated humor. She continually misinterpreted things (i.e "what's all this about violins on TV?") I would also hope that any regular realizes by now that I don't say things to be mean.

That is a very kudos worthwhile name Dana. I will look at that site and think. Because Beechwood Web Design sucks. But the word audacity comes to mind when you say varacity. But i like the name. Did i spell that right.

*lol* understand the naming thing. Trust me when I say I have more than a few problems with akashik.net

The majority of people ask how to pronounce it

For the record it's 'ahh-cash-ik' and it's going to be part of my FAQ

But Im *gasp* too young to really know who Gilda Radner is other than she died from cancer right? Im sorry duster I didnt know it was you or that it was a character.

*feels stupid now* LOL

That's right, Greg. I'm the web guru god of laughter and merriment, sort of like Bacchus only with computers instead of wine (they don't mix).

Dana, you have no excuse. Want to know why? Reruns! ;-D

FYI, Gilda Radner was one of the regulars on the original Saturday Night Live. She had several characters, Miss Emily Latella, who constantly misinterpreted things, Rosana Rosanadana, who would say "if it's not one thing, it's another" and others. She was married to Gene Wilder, a perfect match.

One of her classic routines as Emily Latella is asking about the objection to violins on TV. She goes on to talk about how good violins are and that they should be encouraged until Chevy Chase says "Miss Latella, it's violence on TV, not violins". Then her classic reply, "never mind".

VeraCity... VeryPretty !!!

a good name should ideally, but not necessarily, be:

1. be easy to recall
2. be easy to pronounce/spell
3. be impressive
4. be blah blah blah

in other words, that was a very good name you decided on, Dana !!!

like it enough to wonder if i should register VeraCiti now... LOL !!!!

just joking
