Forget all those sites that randomly generate band names, stripper names and hobbit names. This one could make you rich, my friends. Brooklyn rich!
The Hipster Business Name Generator creates a random combination of quirky nouns and drops them under a stylized X, with the requisite stylish dingbats and initials. The resulting names—such as Fox & Otter, Spyglass & Bean, Whiskey & Cake—are good for a laugh, especially when paired with icons of tiny rabbits, knives and muffins.
The site, which was quickly generating pass around among creative types today, seems to be a marketing effort for domain registration site NameCheap.com, where you can conveniently click off the generator to book a site for your lovely new business venture. Or maybe the creators simply picked a booking site at random, though that seems rather unlikely.
Try it for yourself and let us know your most fruitful combinations. A few of our favorites below.
Hat tip to my friend Paul Crawford for sharing this on Facebook, though to be clear, his agency's not the one behind it.
