Paying $25 if someone can help me come up with a business name for my online business

19 replies
Heres some background. I sell **** on eBay, I sell a LOT of **** on eBay as of late. Back in the day, everybody said "If you sell Cameras, make your name like CameraGuy411 or something, so people feel like you know what you sell" so I did. But then my interest in selling different products grew, so I created new eBay user ID's and became "CellPhoneGuy411", and "CampingGearGuy411" and even "LinensGuy411" - you get the point (those weren't my actual names by the way), so I started to manage 12 eBay accounts, which isn't the problem with software I use. Now-a-days, its best to have it all under ONE name, and also so my eBay feedback can be in the high thousands combined. Not only that, but I need to market myself and my items in a way that makes people remember me, and create a sort of online theme in my eBay/eCommerce listings.

So, I went with the "Mafia" (specifically the early days Mafia) theme. Mostly since:
  • I love Mafia/Mob movies and stories
  • I can create this "Backdoor, Fallen off of the Truck, Hook Up kind of Special or Bargain" - which makes sense since I undercut everyone most of the time anyways.
  • Links, Texts, Graphics, and my general eBay Template and website will be easy to create.
  • I have ideas on creating short local commercials to bring traffic to my site.

Now my problem is, what the hell should I name my business? My eBay User ID and Domain Name must match.

I'd love to own MafiaDeals.com since the user name looks cool and its available on eBay as MafiaDeals. However, the company that owns that domain name wants $40,000 for it. Not happening. MafiaDeals.Net is available, but I don't feel too good with the ".net" part.

I was thinking of maybe "MobDeals" but that isn't available in a .Com or .Net

If anyone could pitch me a good name for the mafia theme that is available as a dot com, I'll pitch them $25.

    the .net is fine. And you can take that to the bank (and get $25 for me whilst you're there )

      I'm liking the MafiaMarket one, which is great because I sell many types of items. Available on eBay too!

    Just a little thought for you...not everyone has the same romance/infatuation with "mafia" or "mob" subject matter as you do. It could cost you business.

    Just when you think you've got it all figured out, someone changes the rules.

      Yeah, I've been talking to a couple people about this on another forum for the past 30 minutes. I really didn't put myself in the shoes of an average consumer. I may be back to square one, or find a way to use charactures or something to make it more themed and less violent looking or something.

      I could not come up with a name for a client as the .com was gone. Didn't fancy the .net etc.

      So we registered the .me and we never looked back. So
      here you go and it is available and 8.99 at Godaddy currently

      I disagree with you on this one.

    You can go for MafiaTrades.com

    It is available right now! Better than Mafiamarkets in terms of reliability and shorter domain length. Also trades go well with ebay. Just an opinion !

    I think you could make the Mafia thing work but you'd need to have a dash of humor behind the presentation.

    Make it a bit tongue in cheek so people get a laugh out of it and know that your joking around, but that the point is you have great prices. If you don't make it too serious I think you could pull it off.

    How about MafiaAuctions.com?

    The domain name is available.

    Let me know when you need some shirts to promote it.

      Haha, use that one! That's good.

      Then you can have the mafia thing and the tongue in cheek thing. It's perfect.
