Ideas for a business name ... retail shop / clothes online

All,
I need some help as I dont seem to have the creative flow I normally do.

I need ideas for a business name for a retail store which works well both for on and off-line. It will initially sell clothes but may diversify at a later date, so needs to be relatively generic.

All suggestions and ideas greatfully received !!

Many Thanks

Andy

Online we built up a reasonably successful niche clothing retailer (about £1.5m net sales) with a brand name of HscPlus. The actual significance of the name was irrelevant, because most of our sales came via comparison sites, PPC advertising for the Brands or specific garments we sold, and via affiliate feeds. Many of these new customers never saw any of the image building aspects of the site. We don't think the name was a significant factor either way for these customers, and we were delighted by how many of them there were. ASOS (As Seen on Screen, I think) is an even better example of the same phenomenon. How many of their customers care about what the initials stand for? From a search engine optimisation point of view, however, it might be better if you could find a name and domain which is very specific indeed to your place in the market. Off-line is a very different thing. It depends a lot on what particular market your'e going for. We had a (not successful...) mini-chain of shops in Covent Garden/Camden/Carnaby Street which traded under the name of "High Jinks" for the streetwear/rave end of the market and "Skate of Mind" for the more skateboard specific side of things.

I seem to spend much of my time musing on domain names for people. Finding names that are still available, and are not protected by trademark is quite a challenge. I use godaddy.com for searching for available names, as they have quite a quick name checking system, which also suggests alternatives if the name you are looking for has gone. It would be helpful to know what your target market is - posh , outdoor, casual, trendy? The process I use is: Gather relevant keywords into Word, use the Synonym function to get more alternatives. Check Godaddy.com for single and word combinations Look for word twists that might work - e.g. "Italyum" for an Italian recipe site. Cut and paste all available suggestions into Word. Circulate the shortlist, and get feedback.
