I am desperately hitting up the SA community in seach of a name for a new business that I am trying to start.

My hope is to leverage our combined CREATIVITY and EXPERIENCE to come up with something that I can use. The idea of the company is to create a new, online music community. With that in mind I want to keep the name short, catchy, easy to spell, easy to say....it doesnt even have to be a word (think, kinkos) as long as it sounds cool.

If anyway wants to spend a few minutes of their Friday flexing their creativity and helping out a sailor in need I would really appreciate it. Please just reply to this post if you think of anything.

Thanks in advance!

You will wake up in the middle of the night, with your answer. Just remember to write it down, so you don't forget. And mmppfft doesn't count.

Don't you know the worst place in the world to get business advice is on SA?

If all us posters actually had jobs we would never have time to answer you.

First of all, not sailing related...take your crappy idea to GA.

Second, if you want to make money on the internet go with porn, not music.

Businesses are harder to name than kids.

As far as trademarking a name or product, you will probably have a stronger mark if the name is completely made up rather than descriptive or suggestive of your business: http://en.wikipedia....distinctiveness
