Naming Inspiration

So, you say that you're starting a business/blog/website and you need a name?
Want something more creative than: Photography by Sam, or Joe's Plumbing?

Bison Girl can help.

A few tips to get you started:
  1. Short. Short. Short. Both with your name and with your URL. Nobody should try to remember www.supercoolnewhairstylistonmainstreet.net when they ask for your website.
  2. Unique and special to you. No, I'm not recommending naming it Suzy's Salon just because your name is Suzy. I recommend that your selected name be something that you are passionate about, and that has an emotional link to you. The words should also convey the feelings of your new venture: bold, quiet, energetic, comfortable, motivating ...
Want more tips and inspiration?
I'd be happy to brainstorm with you, recommend business names, and/or help you select one.
