Since any names that are suggested here may already be owned by another party, I wanted to go a different route...
I suggest either hiring a name creation firm or get together with your friends and/or family and throw a ';name party'; %26amp; have everyone bounce some ideas around. Compile a listing of names that you like the best. Once you have that list, do as much free research as you can before you delve into comprehensive research.
I listed some links where you can do some preliminary name checking. However, please be aware that this is merely scratching the surface of what's out there.
Only comprehensive research will tell you if the name is truly available. But, these links are free %26amp; a great place to start, so I'd try them out first.
Comprehensive research consists of looking at marks that are similar in Sound, Appearance or Meaning in the pending %26amp; registered Federal AND State trademark files as well as the US National Common-Law files.
There are other sites that offer free searching capabilities in conjunction with their commercial services, so I'm not able to post those links due to the Yahoo! TOS. You'll also want to check domain names %26amp; yellow pages, so simply do a search for ';free domain name search'; and ';national yellowpages'; and the appropriate links will pop up.
Hope that helps! I wish you much success %26amp; happiness in all your ventures!I am trying to come up with a name for a salon and spa. Something original, but not too cliche'.?
NV day spa, oasis day spa, metamorphisis day spa...
garden of eden,touch of heaven,magic fingers,feel good spa n saloon,fantasy place,the body works,the beauty stop.etc
Things you might consider...where are you located? Does it lend a feeling of tranquility that you might want to consider in your name? Does your spa offer any unique treatments that others do not? What is the decor of your spa? European, asian? Is it modern, convervative, earthy? I have helped a couple of spas with names, logos and even their web sites. If you'd be interested in me helping you out, please check out my site www.tripleidesigns.com and contact me from there. We are aggressivley adding to our portfolio so we are offering really great rates on our services right now.
Hope that helps!
';Sally's Salon and Spa';
Or substitute some other name beginning with ';S';. It will make designing the sign more fun, make it easier to remember. Try to avoid puns, they only make it harder to interpret what it is you actually do.
use ';Curl up and Dye';
it will be like free advertising
