    Help with a site name...

    Hi there -I would like some help with coming up with a site name.
    On the site, you will be able to play flash games, view videos that we've made and other things along them lines...

    I've got a few names, but I'm not sure if they're good enough.

    • Shuffleworks
    • Minti

    Has anybody here got anything?
    It's really depressing spending over 2 weeks on a site name =/

    Many Thanks,
    BabyJack.

    You can already play flash games and watch videos...

    flshvid.com
    uflashvideo.com
    flshgm.com

    I like minti but the domain is taken...

    I like Shuffleworks. It actually has a unique presence. Try and name a successful website that has a generic name like "flshgams.com" or "watchvideos.net"... It's pretty hard.
    Youtube, Twitter, Myspace, Slashdot, all of them are successful, but they have a unique brand. Shuffleworks is my opinion is a good name. Although Minti is quite catchy.

    Shuffleworks reminds me of Shufflepuck Cafe for the original Mac--which isn't a bad thing at all.

    Shuffleworks or ShuffleWorks?

    Something attracts me to ShuffleWorks more than Shuffleworks... It's more fresh

    BOTH!!

    You need to make it unique to you don't you? If another company - with megabucks in its bank - will likely cause you leakage. decide on a name and buy all the various domain names which spell similarly and which sound similar. if you can stretch to getting all the tld's for all those then do. Otherwise your brand, won't ever be unique to you, which means a competitor can overtake you and ruin your plans.

    i like all lower caps. its the style these days, especially if we talk about these fancy web 2.0 sites.

    anyways a name is only as good as the branding itself. a name like 'flashvideoextravaganza' is not that great, but your two options have potential to be good if you brand it well. just observe other clean sites, like millenia listed, and see how their brand works. a brand gives the name its character, much like you probably know several people named john, but each wears different clothing styles to set themselves apart.

    NoMeToo. I prefer if it will be one word, to use lowercase all the way through. Otherwise, no harm in two words now is there?

    Well when I read it vanilla I was picturing something like this:

    SHUFFLEWORKS

    Fonts would need to be redone obviously, and the colors are arbitrary at this point but you get the idea...

    This way everyone's happy!
    The object of opening the mind, as of opening the mouth, is to shut it again on something solid. –G.K. Chesterton

    It's usually a good idea to start out with this at the VERY TOP of your CSS: * {border:0;margin:0;padding:0;}
