    I will be honest i would tend to agree with them. I can not see what type of business would go for one of those names. It is always better when making up brandables that they are based on some real words.

    You should always think 'who would use this name' before registering any.

    That's just my opinion.

    IMO I only see a handful that's ok ish... I guess they won't accept the whole portfolio here if only a few are listable.. Select your very best; send maybe 5-10 at a time.

    You have put business ideas next to each one but those uses for the name were not obvious., most of the names i wouldn't know how to pronounce. There are just to many better options than those you have listed.
    Feedty... feedly, feedio, feedr, feedsy, feedzy etc... all easier to pronounce and more natural in my opinion.

    Just my opinion.

    I feel you man. I also registered names similar to their published domains.

    Domains like:

    DearMed. StepMed is published on BB.
    UpCliq. Upclix is published.
    MedKitt. Lots of double letter hacks published on BB.

    But got no luck. :)

    You're not the only one.

    I think I liked only Fumso. I can see a company or product with that name.Try resubmitting only that name. Sometimes there can be an oversight. Rest I find are mediocre. The question you have to ask is would you start a six figure or a million dollar venture with that name? I admit that is not who the target clients are but it helps you filter from the junk.

    Forget about what they could be when you register them and put pronounceability first. If they can't be easily pronounced don't register them even if you have very clear view of what type of business could use it. Pronounceability is by far the most important factor.

    You got close with Feedty but unfortunately the Ty suffix makes it a reg fee name. Feedly worth up to 10 grand and maybe more, Feedsy worth up to 5 grand, Feedzy worth up to 2 grand, Feedty worth reg fee. Changing just one letter is the difference between a nice bucket of money and an empty bucket.

    All rejected, what do you think?

    kicksky.com
    ranksky.com
    waynavi.com
    flasholo.com

    I think kicksky can good for extreme sports, ranksky for seo or advertising company. Also waynavi (way + navigation) could be good for a tech startup about location /gps service.

    I am a newbie so it will be great if you direct me.

    One audience is another audience, thats what brandable is right? Set your own audience.

    I would not take a BB rejection or approval as an indicator of a good / bad brandable.

    I have not submitted domains to BB ( or other brandable marketplaces ) but I have sold brandables; indeed my main sales are brandables.

    It is best to use other criteria to evaluate a domain imo.

    1/2017 sold

    suwax.com

    $2.300 USD minus SEDO fees

    not in that list above
    but rejected by Barndbucket

    to me sedo has the same likelyhood of selling a brandable as barndbucket
    but fees are lower much lower
