As you would expect, there are a lot of resources on the web that can be useful in developing lists of name candidates.
Some are branding sites, but most are concerned with language. Iâ€™ve just listed here four Iâ€™ve found intriguing and occasionally fruitful in generating brand names.
The Webmaster Toolkit site has a really easy search tool that internet marketers use to search for keywords for their web pages. I find relevant words and phrases, those actually used by searchers when looking for items through the search engines. Even though youâ€™ll find their pop-ups a little distracting, this search tool provides lists of words and short phrases that will provide name candidates. http://www.webmaster-toolkit.com/keyword-research-tool.shtml
Then there a multitude of language-related sites that can be useful. The following websites contain links to on-line dictionaries and other word-related resources.
Use Wisdom is an authority site with access to many word-related resources. Warning: you can spend literally hours chasing links here. http://www.usewisdom.com/home/words.html
