    I started my own business last week and I'm having a hard time coming up with a good name.

    I came up with two so far.


    • Digital Bedrock - Bedrock is the foundation of pretty much everything on this planet. I like the analogy but I think it's too long and it doesn't really sound that cool.
    • Dynamite Pages - I like this one, because SHIT IS DYNAMITE!!!

    I came up with a bunch more but the best of those already existed.

    Any creative folks over here who have other suggestions? What's you guys' opinion on these?

    Hmm. My instinct tells me that Dynamite is a bad choice - sounds a little too grade-school, plus, you'll get lots of prank calls w/the "good times/dy-no-mite!" shout.

    And Digital Bedrock implies that you are stuck in the stone ages.

    Oooh, that's true. You'll get lots of prank calls singing the song from The Flintstones.

    That's what I was afraid of too :jj:

    I like that one, but it already exists.

    I was also thinking about using something like "rockstar" in the name, but that might turn some companies off who're very serious and corporate-like.

    It's fucking hard to come up with something good that doesn't already exists, man.

    used to be that people tended to choose companies to work with that had someone's name in the company name (eg. Connie's Pizza). not sure it that holds true online too.
