I am soooo frustrated right now! For days and days and days, I have been trying to come up with a creative name for my business and they are all taken. Granted, some are only taken in other countries, like the uk, but I want something really unique and creative and can't seem to find ANYTHING that doesn't pop up when I google it. GRRRR!
Just venting. Thanks for listening.

i know it is frustrating, but maybe you taking some extra time will help you find a name you absolutely love! (and that is completely original)

I have had my name registered for about 12 years but was not too concerned about anyone taking it for a website. Imagine my surprise when I checked on the name and found out the domain is now registered to a chain of funeral homes icon_surprised.gificon_lol.gificon_lol.gif

I wouldn't be too concerned if you have a fabulous name picked out and the only other one is in another country. It is like justducky said, even if you find one which has not been taken there is nothing to say that tomorrow someone else will decide to go with that. As long as the web address is available I would go with what you like most.

OMG! icon_surprised.gif I think I may have found a name! Thanks ladies! icon_biggrin.gif I incorporated my name with one of my favorites and it just might work. I'm going to sit on it for a few hours while I put the kids to bed and such and see if I still like it. Thanks for the suggestions!

Twoot, too funny!!

But umm business names are tough tough tough. I had a yawn-acious boring one forever. Then I wanted a website so I just did acme cakes. Just utilitarian, generic, whatever type name. Then my idea was that my cakes are the opposite of the flavor of the name so...I mean it's better than the mile long webshots name or something.

Every now & then I get all wound up about a business but it can't be done in my county from the house. Wait let me get some violin music going icon_biggrin.gif

But boy finding a business name is the pits.

Good luck!!! And yeah it doesn't have to be super globally unique, locally unique yes.

I used to work for a casket mfg'r..... to me, it's VERY funeral-ish! icon_biggrin.gif

Your biz name should tell people what you do. When I see that name, "cakes" as the product you're selling just doesn't come to mind. icon_confused.gif

There's a story about a company who hired a marketing expert to find out why they weren't doing very well. The name was something like "Teddy Bear Care". Marketing research found out that people thought it was a place to take toy teddy bears that needed new stuffing and an eye sewn back on. The public had no idea it was a day care center! They had to change their name.

You know, I kind of like Acme Cakes! I cannot tell you why, but I saw that and it immediately stuck in my head!
