Help me name a club!
« on: 28 Mar 2011, 20:08 »
Well, I'm participating in a little project, a closed club.

Premise:

Basically bunch of single, independent people with common goal: to spend weekends in interesting way. People have to be single, sane, have income and no commitments, such as kids or spouse.
Every club member (in rotation) has to organize a weekend for the rest of the club, it's basically whatever, from visiting city bars to spending weekend at host's country house to a hiking trip... at least once a month.

Problem:

What's missing yet and what's I'm tasked with is to find an unique name for the club.
It should be short, memorable and preferably very mysterious. I've wrote down a long list I could think of, but don't like any them.
So far, RDX is everyone's favorite (RDX is a type of explosive, feels powerful enough yet many don't know what it means thus mysterious) but we cannot get good domain of same name so I need an alternative.

Reading the premise, what would you name the club?

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

Is it just for men, or can laydeez join too?
You seem keen to specify the need to be single.  does this mean it's basically a pulling club?

Something military sounding perhaps?
I feel like it has to have the word 'Unit' in there somewhere but I'm fighting the temptation to suggest 'Unit 731'

Maybe 'C-UNiT'... :-\

If you want all to be happy over there, you could name it

                 CLOVER

You can also use a little pic of a four leaf clover everywhere (for showing the luck they have, being there and make little buttons for "give-aways" ...).

it is a ladies club. I'm just helping with organizing and setting up website...

That's why I'm struggling with name too  :P Otherwise it would be another Sparta or specops or whatever manly name.
So that's also why fuck mountains etc are out of line. It's nothing sex-related (I think) and being single probably means girls can't have fun with jealous boyfriends calling or hungry kids at home or whatever. Otherwise I would have bought milf.ee instantly
 I know as much as I've told and what I have to put on website. But they haven't decided on name yet (actually have week long debate over it on forums with no consensus) and want specifically domain with same name and since domains are rocket science, "just pick something that we like and and you can get same name on internet-thing or whatever"

Although I doubt that this thread will be any help (none so far) and I probably won't have final say anyway

Does the name have to be related to the purpose club or just sound cool? I sort of like the name "The Weakends" (and theweakends.com is available) but it's kinda corny.
I kinda prefer the more ambiguous yet cooler-sounding type of name like RDX that has its own meaning while keeping an air of mystery. I don't know if I could really help with a name like that, since it'd have to be important and meaningful to you. You could incorporate the name of a historical figure you admire, like Nikola Tesla.
Other than that, I really wish you luck. It's like trying to come up with a band name, struggling to find one that not boring or taken or stupid. Either way, sound like a fun club!

1) Sound cool
2) Be short and memorable
3) Mean something (could be abbreviation)
4) Somewhat secretive
5) Be available as domain or atleast club-<name> or something like this (but any meaningful english abbreviations are very likely available as .ee domain since law was passed very recently allowing individuals to register .ee domains and there's lots of uncovered ground yet). This part I'll figure out myself, there's lots of ways to keep most of the name as domain even if simpler cases are taken

That's I know majority wants. RDX, everyone liked, and is my backup option. sadly, rdx.ee is taken already
and I thought that something as simple and cool but available could come out of this thread

I think Limping Fish is on to something here.  You can do a lot with .ee:

FL.EE
SORORIT.EE
CAMARADER.EE
HAPP.EE
XX.EE (chromosomes, although one more x and your in trouble!)

Some other random ideas:

QUEEN OF CLUBS (their girls, it's a club....) -QOC (Cuwalk?) for mysterious shortening
SUGAR AND SPICE (and everything nice, that's what little girls are made of) -SAS.ee!
WORKING DAY IS DONE (...girls, they wanna have fuh-un!  Oh girls just wanna -well, you get it).
SANTA MONICA BLVD (Cheryl Crow song "All I wanna do is have some fun, till the sun comes up over Santa Monica Boulevard") -SMB.ee for short.

I don't watch a lot of chick flicks, but I'm sure someone could come up with a catchy line from something that those in the "know" would instantly recognize as "Girl Power!"

Good luck!

Adventure Club? It's pretty simple and easy to remember, if not very mysterious. And I believe adventure-club.com is available.

I like :D, seems like a spot-on for such club. I guess it wouldn't be hard to put some meaning behind words FL too
