    Before finding a name, you need to know what type of message/feel you want to convey through it (classic business, more edgy, fashion, catering more to the consumer market etc.)

    Do you want to come across as the small company that could, the big bad Microsoft type company, the guy whole get the job done while having a whole lot of fun?

    Just a few things to help us along....

    I just would like to recommend you not place domain name and discuss it if that is not registered. That can be stolen.

    And by stolen, I'm sure ServerPoint meant that whoever came up with the available name would register it for themselves, which is a very good point. And recommendations here would likely be registered quickly if found available because finding good available names (read as never registered) now a days are so hard to come by - unless you don't care about the extension.

    If you're looking for a .com (or some of the other top gTLD's like .net. & .org), my best advice is to go to a drop catching service like snapnames.com, pool.com, or namejet.com, and do some browsing of soon to be drops (these are names that are expiring and will be available to those who backorder the domain). Not only does this give you a chance to get better names, it also can provide you a list of good ideas for a name.

    When branding a new company, it is important to define your offering in the domain name, unless you are spending a lot of cash on marketing. Try a .com (no dashes) with the term "interactive" in it. This can apply to most of what you described above

    Do a Google search, and see what your competition is using. That might help you think of something.

    The Yahoo domain tool is pretty cool. Domaintools is great too. Knowing this industry, whatever people suggest to you on an active forum, they will become registered quickly.

    Exactly right.. Choose the better name that described your site and be descriptive.
