    I'm developing an online magazine (like MentalFloss.com) with the different types of articles, that will give the answers to the people's curiosity. For example: When was the first car crash? When was the first movie made? How was the first antibiotic discovered?
    If you have better options for a handreg or in your inventory you can post it in the reply. Without bigotry, please.
    Thanks in advance.

    I did not like any of the options. To be fair, it is very hard to come up with a good name for a magazine, even with "mag" or "magazine" in the end.

    For mine, I am going with "Elix". Prepare your project and articles, in the meanwhile look at the auctions, maybe a name will come up that will be perfect for your plan.

    Thanks for a response. Yes, the name, you mentioned is great. Maybe you are right and I need to wait a bit and search for a more suitable name at the auctions.

    Esqe - a 4L in .com - with the Q for question. Could be marketed well for what you are trying to build. But many people use Quora for this kind of thing. Good luck!

    Fizzler is not bad, it is memorable, but not sure how will you connect fizzling to answering questions )

    It is hard to find descriptive good names today. What matters is extremely good content, which would create this connection.
    Just found, that CuriousHeads.com is available. It is descriptive, but does it a good fit?

    A bit on the longer side for my liking, although the meaning is overall not bad. Of course, you have things like Harper's Bazaar, but they also own Bazaar.com :)

    So, for CuriousHeads.com make sure you own Heads.com ;) Like Motley's Fool also owns Fool.com

    But, again, just for online one pretty much anything can work, if you rely just on SEO, but not on memorability, repeat visits, strong reputation etc. For that you need something in the class of Quora, Medium etc.

    I'm not so sure Bohdan is looking to spend 5 or 6 figures, so in lieu of I think a fine-crafted good keyword combo can work :)

    Chose FiddleNet, no idea how you came up with the name but has a quirky come-back-to-me again sort of feel, seems cool for your online mag project.

    Esqe reminds me of Esquire which I thing is a magazine too.. but you could make it your own I suppose.

    Good luck!

    He is a domain investor, he has luxury of spending mid xxx to low xxxx to buy a 5 figure end user value name. Why not use it? He is going to put 5 figure effort into his project and the name should be worthy.

    True enough.. but domains like Heads, Fool, and Bazaar.. I mean I'm not speaking for him, but the examples he's looking to are not in that caliber.

    I think one of the luxuries we have as domain investors is the ability to have a broader view of what we can do with domains- especially when it comes to projects we tend to "experiment" for a bit which is half the fun.

    Thanks, @Recons.Com. I'm always telling myself in such cases, that If the project would take off, I'll upgrade it to a more memorable name.

    I am torn among choices. I voted Digzz (like digging for answers) but of course there will be confusion with digs, digz etc. so not at all firm on my choice of that as a good name.

    ESQE is elegant in a way but unless your plan is to brand around a phrase that it is the acronym for, I probably would not go for it. But if you are, I would for sure. Everyone Should Question Everything (ESQE) :xf.grin:

    Something like FiddleNet is memorable as @HotKey mentions, and your splash page could feature some lively eastern Canada fiddle music :xf.cool:, but I find .com names with the second word net less than ideal.

    Best wishes with your project whatever you choose.

    Bob

    I voted non. @Recons.Com gave you great advice. His Elix is good and sometimes @Bohdan you need to use a brandable name to stand out.

    Examples were to show how longer names handle it by owning the end part too. So you can do the same with cheaper option too.

    ESQE....im so sorry... what kind of a name is that for a new project, comparable to something like mentalfloss.com ? Cmon guys....its not a catchy name, it has no meaning, it sounds like the prototype of a new nuclear missile, ESQE....... no, sorry i really dont think its sexy and a name people will remember....
