Hello GS Community,
I am going to be starting up a company as an independent developer and work for hire. I am trying to come up with a name and as most of us know, when we are trying to come up with a name for anything for yourself it has to be one of the most difficult things. :-? LOL So I decided to come to you, the GS community for help in coming up with a name. Please feel free to list different things that come to mind. I look forward to seeing what all your creative minds come up with! :-bd

DISCLAIMER:
Just to throw this in there, I am not offering anything to the person in which I choose the name from. Not wanting to sound like a jerk but I have ran into that issue once where someone gave a name idea and I liked it but they wanted me to pay them for it. LOL =)) This is just a fun little exercise and to help out a GS member!

    Be sure you check that the name is not in use and go through the proper search as well.

    Thanks but not looking for a domain name. Looking for a name such as "solid brick studios" or "solid brick games". (just using those as an example) Something along those lines. Also, I know there are things out there to get something together but I thought it would be a cool to go straight to the community and get peoples creative minds going. Again, thanks!

    @FryingBaconStudios
    Thanks and trust me, I am most def checking around! THANKS!!!

    @killerpenquins ... not that I think it should discount a name you really like but I always think it is worth considering a name starting in A. Obviously lots of lists are alphabetical and at sometime in your future you don't know if your company is going to be listed places where you might get business from .. tel directory, online business service sites etc so it would at least be worthwhile considering that so you company gets listed near the top.

    Secondly I have seen it recommended that your name not limit you too much .. ie: Like Apple Computers ... at some point they needed to drop the Computers. In your case it might be XXXX Games if that was part of your name .. imagine your great development company and you decide to develop apps for business ... Games wouldn't help you in your name.

    "Angry Birds maker Rovio Mobile Ltd. is probably going to drop to Rovio, Inc. or Ltd. sometime soon"

    So they are just 'mobile' ? If anything, Simo103’s post suggests they should drop 'mobile'.
