I'm trying to come up with names for my graphic design and web design service. Which one of these do you feel is best and why?

1. Aetri - it's what I'm using now,
2. Aetli - I have the .com and also aet.li
3. Qimagine - try saying it and you'll come up with "can you imagine"

    Yep that reads as Kweemagine or Chiimagine at a push.

    Aetri is the best sounding, to an english, speaker but it obviously means nothing to us. What does it mean?

    I *did* read it as "Cue Imagine", but it's still a terrible name.

    Ask a few friends to spell the name and check for domains and social IDs.

    Also, what's wrong with what you're currently using?

    I just started using aetri but am not sure it's the best of what I'm working with. Aetri doesn't have any meaning that I know of but I'd initially thought it looked nice and could be pronounced.

    Ask someone to spell it. If they cant spell it, then you may be in trouble.

    There's one more name I'm considering.

    Which do you think is better, aetri or creoa ?

    I can't help thinking that those names have absolutely zero memorability for the average pundit. I wouldn't have trouble remembering Creoa but that's because I used to work for a video production outfit called Crea.

    Thanks for all the feedback.

    Creoa is based on the word 'Creo' which means 'create'. It might be memorable to someone in the design industry but you have a point that most people won't understand or it won't stick with them.

    Hello,

    Firstly in a good logo we keep in mind that, a word that we select for our logo is not negative or wrong meaning in other languages and your logo is not copied by some another.

    I think Aetri is good, but when i read Aetri in your qus. i first google it after that i know the correct meaning of that word - (Aetri).

    Thanks

    so I started using another name, Bindere (I was able to get bindere.com)

    I like this one because it's my last name first initial and it coincidentally spells bindere which is the origin of where my last name binder and the word binder comes from. So it's the Old English original spelling of binder.

    It's for graphic design and it sounds kind of arts and design to me. I like that it's my name and a word at the same time too.

    Although I still like Aetri, it's difficult to choose between the two.

    I would never hire a designer that thinks they're an agency called Bindere

    The Bindere.com site is more a personal portfolio site, not positioning as an agency. I liked it mainly because it has my name in it.

    Aetri is better than others. It is small and easy to remember.
