Company Name

ShpintShpint Posts: 404Member
Hi,
I'm ready to create a website, but now I need a company name. At first I like the name "Mirage Studios", but turns out the TNMT (ninja turtles) people already took it. That means I can't use the name right?
Can you guys suggest some names? I really want it to be related to: dream, mirage, illusions, things like that.

Non-related question: How did you come up with your company name? (i.e. Red Dot Inc, Quantum Sheep, Robot vs Wizard, FireMapleGames, TShirtBooth.)
If I created a website with weebly.com, can I change the domainname.weebly.com afterward? Like register with a random domain name then change it to my company name afterward.

THANKS

    have you done a trademark search on mirage Studios? It may be expired and if so and they not around anymore you can prob get away with it.

    It's not my fault I never learned to take responsibility for anything. ;)

    Is there a website for that or just google all the way.
    I know the domain name www.miragestudios.com is taken, so it is not possible to create a website with that name anymore right?

    After a few minutes of Googling. Mirage Studios is not an available name. Suggestion anyone?

    To answer your question:

    Quantum Sheep was just something my friends and I used to call 'Quantum Leap' - I liked it, and procured it for myself!

    I like to think it's clever, non-threatening, and makes people smile when they read it!

    It's trademarked now as my business name, and I'm very proud of it. I did come up with a few others that are equally as good - but I'm saving them for QS subsidiary names ;)

    As to name suggestions based on dreams:

    Dreamwalker studios
    Dreamweaver studios
    Beep In My Sleep
    Alien Dream
    Dream State Studios

    QS :D
