Hey again guys!

Okay, so I'm planning to start this web design company, and I'm now desperately trying to figure out a nice name for it. I think it would be cool to somehow unite two or several words to form a hybrid, like scandinavian + interactive = scanactive. What do you think and do you have any suggestions? I don't have that many suggestions myself :rolleyes: and any help would be greatly appreciated. One thing that I DO know, is that I want it to be fairly short, so that both the name and domain address is easy to remember.

Thankies!

:D well actually I was refering to that interactive and scandinavian could form scanactive. But that was just a suggestion :cool:. Perhaps my question is a bit vague, but I'm trapped!

Thanks anyhow krycek :)

"the Finnish Product" sounds kinda cool! But the thing is that I'd like the name to say something about what I do. Keep 'em comin'! :thumbsup:

actually, I was sort of joking :p I totally understood what you want, however I was trying to point out that there's not a whole lot you can do with those two particular words :)

Your slogan could be, "put your soup in a Finn, not a fin in your soup" :p LOL :D

krycek: :D I understand it can be a bit *limiting* to just spit out two words and then expect people to come up with the greatest name for my company :o. Sorry 'bout that! I would actually try to make a list of words, but that's the problem; I can't think of any :rolleyes:.

I like scanactive because it sounds cool. From a marketing standpoint, I would suggest adding another word to describe your services such as Scanactive Web Design.

Other words to consider: kinectic or kinectics. Both have different meanings and I think they sound interesting.

Kinectic - pertaining to or caused by motion, characterized by movement.

kinectics - the branch of mechanics that studies the actions of forces in producing or changing the motion of the masses.

Thanks for all your suggestions! :) They are all really good! I came across this word, that might also do the trick:

Cynosure - An object that serves as a focal point of attention and admiration. Something that serves to guide. Can also mean: center, focus, guide, pattern, personality...

What do you think?

This may sound weird, but I don't like the way the word "looks".

Also, when I saw the first 3 letters, my first thought was the word cynical.

But hey, who am I?

StaceyJo: no, actually I'm not very fond of it either, but it has some meaning in it :cool:. Well, keep 'em comin'! :p

Thanks all! You have really entered lots of cool choices :thumbsup:. Perhaps I should make a poll, and then we all could vote for the best name? :D

Hmm, why not Designovations, Designin'ovations or Designingovations then?

Hmmm, Designovations could have two meanings

1) A marriage of Design and innovations

2) Design Ovations (http://dictionary.reference.com/search?q=ovations)

Although, admittedly, the 2nd one may be a bit to much, erm, horn-blowing?
