    When I want to create new cool names for websites, services or stuff, I follow a very simple technique. I take my fist and press random keys until I have a large string of awkward text. Then I try to pick some syllables and form a nice looking word. So, what is your method?

    OP, I use your post for making pokemon! xD
    When I'm looking for a website name I just use the closest possible EMD to the relevance of the site :p

    I think of words that I like, and I follow them up with legitimate sounding suffixes.
