the latter is snappier, more of a soundbite and just abit naughty. good branding always caters to the lowest common denominator of your target market.

Yes, if I had to choose I would take the second one as well. But I still think better names do exist.

Sorry to say, I think neither one is catchy enough especially if it is to be online. Do try searching for something shorter than this.

cheers!

I think you should try to come up with a different name. Something catchier.

I have a special name in mind (and it is still available as a .com.sg) but do not know if it is suitable for your e-business. What kind of clothes are you selling?

In case you are interested you can PM me, as I may be willing to offer you ideas and support in return for a stake in your business. :wink:

I guess it is called marketing, isn't it?

Price, promotion, product, marketplace, that's what counts.

Depending on what you sell for which price to whom, a name should attract that. And also know the characteristics of online webshops and choose a name accordingly.

I suggest you do some google searches on online competitors, if you already haven't done so.

Oriental, good business sense there... :wink:
