Can anyone explain to me how to come up with a startup name thats domain name is not taking lol ?
Simple 3 step process
What does it do?
What does that word look like without vowels or in a foreign language.
Add '.io' to the end of that.
Force a word to end with ly now matter how bad it sounds or irrelevant it is to what you do.
Or a word ending in -er, then remove the e.
The answer is: because we attach too much weight to a name. At the end of the day, the name isn't important. If we draw parallels to the music industry, the biggest bands in the world have the most awful band names. The Beatles, Coldplay...awful if you think about it. But their success trumps their name and no one cares anymore.
To summarise: create a good enough product and it can be called anything.
