Need help choosing a name!

15 replies
I'm gonna start a health/fitness site and I'm having serious problems with finding a good looking name.

The thing is that I'm not going to target a specific keyword within the health niche itself, and therfor I'm just looking for a rather short name that people will remember and associate with health/fitness/exercise.

Any suggestions for names would be highly appriciated.

Excuse my poor spelling.

    How long would you like it to be one or two words?
    It's going to be extremly hard to find short keywords in the health niche. Most are already taken what you can do is go for something brandable and easy to remember.

    Here are some suggestions:

    BodyFitnessAddict.com
    Exercise-Junkie.com
    Fitness-Lover.com

      I've been thinking of having it as short as possible, so it can fit in to most of the "sub-niches" like body building and weightloss etc etc.
      Just to make it sound sort of like an "authority" site to the visitors.

      Thanks for the suggestions.

        Bodybuilding and weight loss are two completely different segments of a market. Think about it...

        1) The bodybuilding niche is looking to gain weight while the weight loss niche is obviously looking to lose weight.

        2) The "tribe" language of these two niches is completely different. (To find out what a "tribe" is Google Seth Godin).

        So now lets get down to finding a suitable name... One that you will be creating a brand with!

        What I do is look at the market and find out what it is they really want. Then I try to come up with different words to describe those wants.

        I'll write those words out in a Word document so I can go back and look for synonymous words. (Similar words that have the same or similar meaning) I usually have no trouble coming up with 100 words or so.

        Then I will read that list of words and see how they fit together until I come up with something that "sticks".

        Try it... put some effort into it and you'd be surprised how much of a help that little exercise is.

    Try to have letters "T" and "P" in it. This is something I learned in Marketing Principles class, those letters somehow make name stand out, but don't make it cheesy because of those letters. One of the ways is to employ word "Positive". Maybe something like "Positive Attitude Fitness" ? Or "Health And Fitness Positivity" ?

    I think word "Positive" is a powerful addition to a name. Especially in Health and Fitness category.

    It's always a good idea to keep your target keyword in your site title for SEO purposes

    that is if you want to get to page 1 on search engines for some free traffic ~

    it doesn't hurt to give it a twist though just make sure you have your keywords or your primary keyword in your domain name

    To your success,
