    Need a good name?!

    Argh!

    I'm wracking my brain trying to think up a decent name for a creative design agency. I'm gunna start up my own design business, web design, logo design, marketing, Coding, SEO, everything.

    But trying to think up a catchy and interesting name is just proving so flipping hard!

    Anyone have any good ideas? Bear in mind the domain has to be available.

    Just take your mind off it - And one will come. I promise you, happened to me when I wasn't thinking about it.

    Failing that you could always just choose a word, and stick "i" in front of it. iThink thats not been done before

    write down a lot of words that are similar. Also use google labs sets to find related words. Do a search for companies in other cities that do what you do and see what kind of names they are using. Good luck.

    Try this, think about names when you go to sleep each night, then one morning when you wake up, you know you have the name.

    It'll eat at you for months if you let it. I've been trying to come up with a domain name for ages now, and I've ONLY just managed to find one that I am happy with. Take it from me when I say that you'll only be able to come up with something truly good when you least expect it. Go for a day out somewhere with a friend or something, then see if anything comes up.

    Your website is indexing some of your invoices too. For the sake of your clients privacy, I would really do something about that
    BTW, I'm in EXACTLY the same situation as you are in. I thought simplisticstyle.com was a good name before (and I foolishly registered it) but now I want something more original and short like www.cabedge.com (brilliant design firm in USA).
