    Cool Name my company!

    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 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!

    interscandinactivean

    interscanctive? ...no...

    it's a pity you didn't choose two words that go together better!

    well actually I was refering to that interactive and scandinavian could form scanactive. But that was just a suggestion . 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'!

    actually, I was sort of joking 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" LOL

    krycek: 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 . Sorry 'bout that! I would actually try to make a list of words, but that's the problem; I can't think of any .

    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?
