Company names are over-rated. In truth, pretty much any name will do. In fact, I associate buzzword-filled `fancy` names with vaporcompanies that consume a lot of resources, produce a huge amount of hype based on inflated claims, and then exlode or disappear silently, producing nothing useful in their entire lifespan. Success does not require a sophisticated name. Admittedly "Yahoo!" is kind of a catchy name, but "ebay" and "amazon" are, as far as I can tell, completely arbitrary. Moreover, some of the most successful small businesses I know have simple names, such as arbitrary three-letter acronyms ("AMI Machining") or just the founder's name ("John H. Ransom Laboratories"). IBM is International Business Machines, SUN is Stanford University Network, HP is Hewlett and Packard... generic names all around. Every moment of thought you put into coming up with a catchy name is a moment wasted, one in which you could be accomplishing something useful. "Kaolin Fire Web Design" will work fine.
