    Help decide the new name for my web design business

    I'm about to launch my new business soon. And the hardest part is deciding on a business name for it. I think I might have narrowed it down and I'd like to poll fellow members on your thoughts. My business provides Web Design and Strategic Blogging Consultation to businesses and certain vertical markets. That is all we do; 1) Blog Consulting and 2) Web Design.

    I was looking for greek or latin derivations as business names for my firm. I really preferred not to have the words, Studio, Consulting, or Design affixed at the end of my business name. For instance, I didn't want something like; Crossroads Design. Know what I mean?

    I liked Primo because it meant premeire or "the best". But most of the domains associated with primo are taken.

    And I thought about Ali Primo. It's prounounced like Ally McBeal and not like Muhammed Ali.

    But alot of folks didn't like Ali Primo for some reason.

    And then I thought of one of my favorite country music singers, Faith Hill. She has a pretty name.

    So I thought about Ally Hill or how bout Allie Hill. I didn't want to name the company after myself because my last name is hard to pronounce for some folks. So I thought it might be better to name the company after a fictitious person, Allie Hill.

    I've put this on a poll format to let you guys vote. And you are of course, welcome to list your suggestions here as well. Who knows, if it's really good, I"ll pay you like $25 USD and use it.

    Defero. Strong sounding name, and it's Latin for "Communicate" which is what your business would ideally be fostering

    actually, I think I know what to name it now.
    I just went out for Starbucks Coffee and this name for my business popped into my head.


    Big Hopes Studio. Or Big Hope Studios or Big Hopes Studios.


    Which is more grammatically correct? Which flows better? Iím leaning towards Big Hopes Studios.


    Because that is what the new business is for me. And itís always been my mantra. Iíve always had big hopes for myself. And itís the mantra and the mission statement that I like to live by for my clients too. When they come to my firm, they have big hopes that I can offer the right solutions to them. In fact, we all have big hopes as entrepreneurs. I can write a good diatribe on the idea of Big Hopes and Big Dreams, but hopefully, you get the point.


    You think?


    Eureka!

    On second thought, Big Hopes Studios may have one too many "S's" in it. You think?

    Perhaps Big Hopes Studio?

    I don't want anyone needing speech therapy to say my business name

    I'm not really a fan of any of them, I would try and stay clear of "studios" though, it sounds too generic.

    'YES! Another web development company'

    or

    'Web Dev Company #48624584'

    OMG ... and they're both available domains!

    I thought it was a pretty name. But most of my colleagues and friends like Big Hopes Studio.

    Apparently, everyone's a critic Actually, it's pretty tough trying to concoct a good business name. But at the end of the day, the name doesn't mean much unless you can bring in business...
