    PSD to XHTML/CSS business name. Thoughts?

    Hi guys,

    We're working on a startup PSD to XHTML/CSS business and we're brainstorming for names..

    Since we'd like the site to be able to expand, we're looking for something that is specific to coding, but not necessarily to the service.

    Right now I'm really liking the sound of CodeSublime. I just bought the domain, and if I get enough positive feedback on it, I'll start working on the site.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks,
    Brennan

    We're working on a new website for our Photoshop to XHTML/CSS conversion business. Soon we will be asking for feedback on the website design, but right now we're just wondering what people think of the name CodeSublime.

    Thanks,
    Brennan

    I really think you should end up with a name thats more brand able and pronounceable. Don't take me wrong but CodeSublime to me sounds like a more kid startup business that charges $40. for PSD to XHTML/CSS if you understand me. Plus wouldn't you hope that maybe at one point if success takes off you can be able to keep that brand you've created and add things like designing and other options that you would be a little stuck under the coding name.
    hi.

    How about SemanticSlice, it implies high quality code (semantics) and the slice element of turning PSD's into something. I think it has a nice sound to it

    Brennan,

    Why don't you just call it Fireworks(TM)? That's exactly what Fireworks CS4 does already.

    dklynn, Firework's doesn't produce highly semantic code nor does it replace the hand coding that professional agencies that convert images to full designs offer.

    If you are going after web traffic, I would want to make sure the domain name is available before I get set on a name. Get a good list together created with a suggestion tool. I like domai.nr to find compatible TLDs for your name or bustaname.com

    SemanticSlice sounds nice if its available...

    Just out of curiosity, how are you trying to beat your competition? I know there are a lot of services out there. Are you beating them on some dimension like price/quality/turnaround or do you have tons of money for advertising or something my ignorance cant begin to think of

    Well considering at this present time the .com .net and .org extension for the name suggestion I gave are available, your comment seems pretty redundant.

    Just a suggestion from me: never, never show domain name available for the registration on public. That is bad concern. because someone can register them once see them and then you will need to over pay for the domain name you are interested in.
    Good luck

    SiberForum, well I am not actually interested in it, I was just pulling an example out for the OP. I guess it's down to whether he kept reading after his last post to whether hes likely to get it (if he is actually interested in it).

    Hey guys,

    Thanks for all of the feedback. I've gotten pretty mixed feelings about the name so far, but I have a very nice color scheme and site planned that I think will go well with CodeSublime.

    Personally I think many IT companies have names that are much too bland. I like CodeSublime because it has a smooth flavor, and I think that with appropriate marketing, competitive rates, and great coding, we'll do just fine.

    AlexDawson: Thanks for the name idea. I'm surprised I didn't didn't come across that one while I was brainstorming. I don't think I'm going to dive on it, but it's really great to see someone giving well thought-out advice. I appreciate that.

    Thanks again to everyone that's contributed their thoughts and feedback.
    Brennan
