    Alternative name ideas needed

    So I have a side character in my superhero villain AU thing. His super name is Siren, and his skill is basically screeching really loud. Only thing is I’ve already written 8 pages, and just now remembered that’s the name of a character with a very similar skill in TCFSV. I don’t want him to be so similar to a popular character, and I don’t want anything to do with that controversial fandom. Any alternative name ideas? I want it to somehow be related to his skill. Last resort name is "whistle" but I trust in Reddit to come up with something cooler.

    I need help finding the name of a movie

    It’s a thriller where 16 year-old ish girl disappears. The detective is useless so her father tries to find her and we mostly see the whole movie through the camera of a Macbook.

    I know it was on Netflix awhile ago but I can’t remember the name and I can’t find it on Google either…

    The producer wrote another story about girls that were kidnapped, it was in theatres in 2023.

    Any guesses?

    Names for surf wetsuit brand

    I'm thinking about creating a surf suit brand...and I need ideas for the brand name.. any suggestions?

    I was thinking of a name that was related to the elements/balance/equilibrium. In this case, water is the most obvious element, something that is related to this. I've thought about "water" or "balance" in other languages too

    Thank you

    Help naming a camper van rental company in Alaska

    My husband and I live in Alaska and are starting a campervan rental company. We have 2 vans and are waiting to start posting on social media until we have a good business name, but can't seem to settle on one and looking for some help deciding.

    We want something that's distinctive to Alaska but not so generic it gets lost in the mix. Our favorites so far are below but I just feel like we might be able to do better.

    • Latitude 61 Van Co
    • Northern Nomad Van Co
    • Midnight Sun Van Co We've since found out there is already a business named this.

    Help us come up with something good and eye catching and unique!

    Seeking Brand Name Suggestions for My Consumer Electronics Business

    Hi Everyone,

    I've been running a consumer electronics business for a few months now, primarily through my eCommerce site. However, I've noticed that the site's current name is quite hard to pronounce, and customers often struggle to remember it.

    I'm aiming to rebrand with a name that's easy to pronounce, simple to remember, and represents my focus on quality electronics products. My goal is to create a brand that stands out and resonates with customers looking for reliable gadgets.

    If you have any suggestions or ideas, I'd love to hear them. As a thank-you, anyone whose name is selected will receive a small gift from me! Your insights on how to make my brand name more memorable would be incredibly helpful.

    Thanks in advance.

    INAN for an app

    Working with a team on developing an app designed to making volunteering great again through challenges, trainings, and more ways to give back in ways that work for you - wherever, whenever.

    We’re struggling to find a name that fits, that is short and sweet while rolling off the tongue. We’ve come up with a few ideas, but all seem drab or nonsensical. Any suggestions?

    INAN: Department needs to change its name but we cannot think of a new name for the service we provide.

    I work for a company that offers various services to local businesses. One of the services we provide is called: Relocation Assistance Program but we need to change the name to better capture the chance of scope of what we offer:

    -We partner with companies that hire people from afar (different city or country) when they cannot find anyone local (Hospitals, Universities, Manufacturing Plants)

    -We connect with those new employees and assist them with everything related to relocation for themselves and their families

    -We assist with integration into the community including helping kids find programs, child care and social integration opportunities for the parents and family.

    -We act as a local resource for these new employees for anything they require. From finding housing to specific social groups they can join.

    -We assist the spouse find work as often new employees that come with spouses need help with their spouse finding work.

    We are thinking of a name like "SHIFT" or "RELO ASSIST" but I feel we are not creative enough.

    Assistance would be appreciated.

    INAN For My New Crochet Business!

    I attended my 4th market this weekend where I sold an incredible amount of my crocheted stuffed animals. I also make hats, scarves, and blankets (all crocheted), but haven't gotten around to selling them yet.

    Lots of people asked me for my website and socials, but I don't have any since I'm still pretty new.

    I'd like cute, fun name ideas! I'm open to including any puns, or my nickname (Boo).

    Thanks!

    How to find a great name for my crochet business?

    I thought finding a name for my crochet business was going to be easy, but not even close. I read a few blogs, spoke to a few friends and came to the following conclusion: Your name should be unique so that people can remember it, keep it simple, that usually helps. The name should tell people what you are focusing on is it using crochet for blankets, do you also sell yarn, what about patterns? If you should go online, well that is a whole different conversation full of pitfalls. I did not choose a cliché or long boring name. I also made sure there was no trademark on the name or that is was not already in use, quite important. I quite like "hooked on stitches" and "Knot's and Needles" What do you think?

    Playing a video game that allows you to name armor and weapons, need two names please!

    I need a name for a flamethrower that's a bit more effective against robots and a knife that deals cold damage and can freeze people. I've already come up with one for the flamethrower (thinking of calling it "percussive maintenance" or something similar) although I'm not sure if I wanna go with that. I can always change the names again, though, so.

    Wedding Officiant Business Name

    Howdy!

    Like the title says, I'm looking for a name for my wedding officiant business. I'm a newly Ordained Non-Denominational Minister looking to start officiating and I want to come up with a name that relates to my location and principles. I especially want to figure out something that conveys I encourage people of the LGBTQ+ community to reach out to me. It's especially important to me due to the location I'm in not being the most inclusive. I was also thinking it'd be cute to add the flare of our small mountain community and maybe incorporate "Rim of the World" since that's what we collectively call all the small towns in our area. Even if I abbreviate it as ROTW at the beginning since we all know what it means up here. Any advice you have would be endlessly appreciated!! Sending y'all love and light!

    EDIT: Thank you everyone for all of your suggestions! I appreciate all of your help.

    Thank you especially to u/Character-Twist-1409 since I fell in love with your suggestion and decided to go with it. Rim of the World Rainbow Weddings is so beautiful and I'm so excited to move forward with that!
