    Help me name my web design service

    I'm going to be opening a new web design service. However I am stuck on the name and I need your help

    Could you give me some examples of trendy names?

    Thanks

    No offense, Fab, but seeing as how you are only now starting to learn basic CSS, don't you think opening a web design firm might be a bit premature?

    Photoshop templates are nice and everything, and you DO have a talent for it, but that's NOT real, full-featured web design. You either need to know it ALL (php/mysql, perl/cgi, ASP, XHTML, CSS, JS, ColdFusion, shall I go on?!) OR you need to have enough capital to hire a boatload of people who can do it AND generate profits before you ever even so much as sign a lease agreement.

    Just a thought before you get into something you can't get out of (from a fellow entrepeneur).

    Think about that, then we'll get to the name IF you're really serious.

    Business PLAN first, then name.

    Now that seriousness is out of the way (and it IS serious, Fab)...

    On to names. The BEST names are weird ones that you wouldn't expect, you know?

    Amazon for... Books?!
    Monster for... Jobs Search?!
    Google?! Jeez, Google was a MISSPELLING!

    Try thinking of weird stuff like:

    www.mongolianredbeans.com
    or
    www.acidicwrinkle.com
    or
    www.lefthandedwidgets.com

    No kidding. Weird names...

    well I wouldn't be doing any coding I would just be making the HTML file and they could code it. I also have a friend who very experienced in all languages and I remember we did a few layouts, I design, and then he would code it. It was a good team.

    I agree with WorldBuilder, don't get into something without a plan first. Make the business plan, then make the other plans, THEN AND ONLY THEN take them into action.

    But if your friend will do the coding for you, that's good, just make sure that he will before you invest in the hosting, domain, etc.

    As far as names... hm.. dunno, but think of something weird.. but not too weird liike WorldBuilder said.

    Things like Fab planned happen more often then you think. Usually a very good designer does a mockup and then gives it off to another person who is responsible for slicing the design and making the html pages.

    I think it's great to start up somthing like that when you're young. I would if I had the talent and time.

    A good name? Umm. "Fabolous" is a goog original word right? What about that?

    I'm gonna go with Volantą Studios. Yeah I will just be making the actual design not doing complete sites for websites.

    However if I needed to do the coding I got the perfect partner for it. My first layout under this name will be for optigamer.

    It sounds good. And yes it is, and it looks good too.

    Lightbulb Good name for web design company

    Dear Fabolous05,

    You can go on having names everything beneath the sun but the problem is search engines will love your company once they find keyword rich names. Consider the case of Codeclouds IT Solutions Private Limited or CISPL. What words you get from there?
    1) Code
    2) Clouds [say, cloud of web]
    3) IT
    4) IT Solutions

    Isn't that great for name selection?
