Okay, so maybe zazzy’s not a “real” word, but I think it’s catchy. The fact is -- it’s just not that easy to find a unique business name in the age of ebay and etsy and a million blogs and other websites. So cut me some slack, people. Naming an online business is just not what it used to be. Ten years ago, when I had my first website, I easily got my first choice for my business name. Not this time! I was determined to choose a name that on one else was using on the internet in any way. But I didn’t get my first choice or my second choice – or even my third choice. I had to think even further outside the box, and I learned some new, albeit made-up, words.

By the way, I also briefly considered using the word, “zen,” but quickly realized that I am way too much of a stress case to pull that one off. I mean, really, what do I know from zen? I do yoga, but I’m nowhere close to zen. Recently, I used the word “cockamamie” on facebook, and a friend challenged that word too. Hmm ... Cockamame Peacock -- there’s a name I didn’t consider. I bet no one’s using that one!
So tell me, did you have a hard time finding a unique name for your business? Do you have any favorite made-up words you’d like to share?
