Hey, I'm currently making an internet based business. An agency of some sort. The thing is I've been trying to comeup with some name ideas, but my main parameter is having the .com available. Nothing can replace a .com for me, so as you can imagine, my name options are very limited as almost every idea I come up with, is already taken.

I've used 99% of domain/business name generators online, I've looked though thesaurus to the point I reckon I've seen 99% of existing words, and nothing.

My main aim was a domain/business name consisting in just one word, and obviously it's all taken. So I have 3 options at the moment: dropping a letter, for example blackhatwrld.com. Second option, using more than one word, for example blackhatworld.com (lol). Third option, inventing a word.

At the moment, the option that convinces me the most, is dropping a letter, but Idk if it'll age badly or it's already saturated with apps or stuff with a letter missing. Inventing a word is a choice I've considered as well, but it doesn't say anything about the business itself, and imo a name should be kind of demonstrative.

What do you think looks and sounds better? which option you reckon won't age badly?

I always go with inventing words by adding extra letters, or the translation of the words or even an abstract word. It works like charm. My friends envy all my domains.

You can add a word like

businessnamedesigns.com (assuming it was a web design business). I would not drop a letter because it can confuse people when you tell them the URL in person.

Coming up with a new word as you say would definitely be better in terms of branding. You can try adding pre/post-fixes - I've found that they usually work very well even with basic words.

That's a good idea, will try that with some words I've liked. With extra letters you mean like "fiverr", repeating a letter or adding a random one?

You're right about the letter dropping aspect, having to explain every single time about the missing letter. Regards adding the "design" part or similar, I kinda like it, maybe it's just me but I find it to sound a little bit generic.

Exactly, the branding part is fundamental for me, a memorable name. I'll try with more preffixes, as I've tried some and the ones I liked were taken.

Select a unique name and ensure that company name is not similar to any other Private limited, OPC, LLP or Public limited company. Also, do check if your first is not a registered trademark taken by anybody under the IP act. Also, make sure the name is not too generic to be accepted by the ROC and also, try not to use abbreviations, adjectives. While choosing the name make sure that name should contain the objective of the business like if the objective is I then word is Technology, technosoft, IT consultancy.
