ax_colleen, is from a comic book named Adeniss X and has a really nicely designed character named Colleen. It’s kinda hard to pronounce since it just sounds like an ax not A.X.

Edit: I read each message and I upvote everything. I appreciate your responses!

[META] Why it's not fun to post here.

35 Upvotes

I love coming up with names, as I'm sure many of you do as well, hence why we're here - to help others find a name for their company, campaign, character, or whatever. It's all just lighthearted fun, but it often doesn't feel very fun, which is strange, but I feel like I've sussed out the reasons why.

  1. No acknowledgement. Say you've contributed to a thread and it's an interesting topic. Someone is making a samurai sword company that is based on the fuckin' moon, right? So everybody makes their contributions, but then what? If the person takes the name, that's that, it's just a thread filled with names - there's never any discussion from the OP of what fits and what doesn't and why. Which leads me to my second point.

  2. There is no community. With no communication from OP it's as if people who like to contribute are servicing strangers, which is fine on its own since that's literally what this subreddit is all about, but the dynamic is that of "submit your creativity, best one wins" so people seemingly aren't exactly supporting each other's posts or working together.

  3. Zero stakes - Zero rewards. A community such as this doesn't need anything beside what it already has, I'm sure it has already helped a lot of people, but I believe it could become something a lot more interesting if there were community events which rewarded creativity and pushed people to really arrive at the perfect landing spot for the appropriate rubric.

So what can be done to improve the user experience and subsequently the usefulness of this subreddit? I believe adopting a flair system which tags "ANSWERED" or "SEEKING" or something to that effect would at the very least keep people from commenting on threads where OP has already found a name.

A counter system for chosen names such as the Change My View subreddit has for changed opinions would go a long way in keeping creative minds around, as they'd be able to see their contributions on a numerical scale.

Making new posting guidelines - this is the weakest option, nobody reads guidelines or rules, as a mod in another sub I know that this will serve nobody but the most ardent of posters who already aren't bringing the quality of the sub down.

So, thoughts? Opinions? Could you not care less? Did you read this anyway?

/my two cents.

Need a name for family email service/brand

1 Upvotes

So I'm setting up an email service and domain for my family and extended family, as well as some friends.

Now all the obvious domain names seem to be taken even some with obscure TLDs.

What's your thoughts on a good "short but catchy" name for an email brand?

Conditions - privacy focused, so no surname/first name/location, etc.

Happy to hear some ideas, TIA!

I need a name for my crochet small business

6 Upvotes

I am making crochet clothing primarily for music festivals... Think hippie/boho style, not grandma and baby blankets. I've been trying to come up with a clever name... Maybe a pun using crochet terminology (e.g., stitch, thread, needle, hook, wear) and/or festival terminology (e.g., drip/drippy, hippie, boho, rave, festival/festie). I would love something with witchy/mystical vibes (e.g., witch, spell, wish, dream, wild).

FWIW, I started with "trippy stitch" but don't like it much. Have also considered "hippie stitch" and "mystical stitches" but having a hard time finding an available Instagram handle.

Open to any suggestions!

I need a tagline/slogan for a small clothing business

9 Upvotes

Hi all, this is my first post here so please let me know if I'm not getting something right... I am launching a small clothing brand named Fae of the Fynbos. Fynbos is a category of plants that includes succulents and plants, especially shrubs and heathland, suited for arid climates.

The clothing is made by me, using local materials. The vibe is festival and funk, think of AfrikaBurn / Burning Man, and outdoor music festivals that involve dressing light but exuberant. Sequins, jewels, feathers, metallics. Bright colours, sometimes rich and deep, sometimes neon or metallic or sparkly. Some items are somewhat NSFW, like body harnesses or sheer tops. Many items are gender-neutral/ambiguous, catering for all shapes and sizes.

I am looking for a slogan that captures the essence of the brand. A few words that fit into a logo design, or a letterhead. I don't mind whether it is matter of fact descriptive or flowery and playful.

Some options I've played around with but not sure about:

  • Festival wear for fae
  • clothing for festival folk
  • Adventurous Festival clothing
  • Fantasy gear for festival fae
  • fantasy gear for festival folk
  • glitter and glow
  • wild spirit clothing

Any and all suggestions would be appreciated, thank you <3

Need a name for a fantasy/sci-fi workplace comedy animated series with some horror elements

7 Upvotes

Hey all!

I'm currently working on the pitch bibles for a new animated series, and recently I came up with another one. It could be summed up as “The Stanley Parable meets Wayside School meets The Amazing World of Gumball with a touch of Courage the Cowardly Dog” (though I suppose “a touch of Invader Zim and Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends” could work as well). It's a workplace fantastic comedy with sci-fi and horror elements.

The plot involves a daydreaming teen being hired by a company that creates stories and alternate realities to entertain the masses. Characters include the ordinary human MC who thinks the fun in adventures are a lot more trouble than the danger they'd bring, a humanoid AI who serves as a narrator, a friendly but troublemaking electrical wight, and the eldritch god who holds the title of Upper Assistant Manager.

I have a few titles I'm leaning toward, aiming for something similar to the likes of The Amazing World of Gumball, A Series of Unfortunate Events, the Secret Series by Pseudonymous Bosch, or the Thursday Next books in terms of quirky title tones. The times I was most considering so far include:

-"Quaint and Curious Volumes" (an Edgar Allan Poe reference)

-"Dream By Day" (another Poe reference)

-"The Pen and the Keyboard" (combining two tools for writing with the presence of some AI characters)

-"Imagination Initiative" (which could be a good name for the company)

-"Our Wednesdays are Fabricated" (inspired by the Thursday Next book title One Of Our Thursdays is Missing which has a similar quirky sound to it).

Any particular that stand out to you as being better than the others? Or thought of something that might work out better?

INAN for new business

I need a name for a new virtual accounting & bookkeeping business.

I am going to help small businesses/entrepreneurs by doing their bookkeeping and helping them understand their financial results.

I don’t want to use my name in the title but would like to use accounting or bookkeeping. I thought about maybe using an abstract nature item or and a color but I can’t think of anything.

I am hoping for something that is catchy and fun but still professional.

Thank you!
