    Help me think of a domain name !!

    Hi everyone,

    Ok to start with if this is not allowed or in the wrong place then move it or say and I will delete it.

    My problem is I am trying to think of a domain name for my personal / freelance web site. I know most people get stuck on this part, especially me right now. I have been trying to think of something for ages.

    Now what I was wondering is if anyone would like to try and help me think of a name I would be very greatful. I have a list of words which might inspire you to think of something. Everthing I think of is already taken.

    Anyway it would have to be somebody I know on here cos I want to know I can trust them with what I have so far.

    If anyone is generous enough to help please let me know.

    cheers . .

    not enough information... but well, if you say that it's a personal/freelance page... IamHereOnline.com it's available

    "Domain names are like [wo]men ... the ones I like are already taken ..."


    Anyway - a good approach is to take two words which aren't commonly associated together - eg "spoonfish.com" or "rubberguitar.com" or whatever - you end up with something that's catchy and easy to remember, but also likely to be still available

    I recently registered "imthedaddynow.com" ... I'm thinking nothing but a picture of Ray Winston holding a sock ...

    some words you should avoid though, like i dunno "brother" and "cake" together, that wouldnt be any good *grins*

    Aha! Another Countdown fan in our midst; there aren't too many of us left who remember Carol Vorderman before she was a media tart Do you like 15-1 as well? My Dad's been in the grand final twice!

    Okay, I will try it in IE... (sluggishly opens up the worst and slowed browser on earth... apart from Mozilla that is)

    Have fun with anagrams!

    Borgtex,

    great suggestion! It takes a while to get the feel of the possibilities, but if anyone's looking for a really clever name, this might be a good one.
    I tried anagrams of "a colorful site" with max. two words, and some nice suggestions might be:

    FORTALICE SOUL
    OSCILLATE FOUR
    SECTORIAL FOUL
    SOCIETAL FLUOR
    COALS FLUORITE or better:
    FLUORITE COALS which it strange enough did find itself;
    FRAIL CLOSEOUT
    ARTFUL COOLIES (very nice!)
    FLAT COLOURISE (ain't that strange...)
    TALL FEROCIOUS

    Happy experimenting!
    Regards,
    Ronald.
