Do you name your store based on keyword?

I am wondering people who run retail store online. Do you name your store based on keyword for boosting seo or something like ABC store or product name ? I am trying to get a name for my store but is stuck with the idea.

    I personally would go with a branded domain name, not a keyword domain. Google changed the way it ranks EMDs a long time ago, so they no longer have the SEO advantage that they used to have. A brandable name is so much more interesting than an EMD.

      I try to make mine descriptive, not necessarily keyword rich. I like to keep the name short and sweet so customers have an idea what they will find on it when they visit - is obviously corsets, obviously shoes, etc.

      Domain names are the hardest part of coming up with the store imo actually. So many names are taken even if they don't have a site on them at present, it can be hard to get one you like. was my hardest one when I was trying to come up with a steampunk site (which I actually expanded to pirates, renne, etc after coming up with the name). Took me nearly a year to find a domain name I liked and wasn't already taken
