The dotcom domain name should be available - (if it is REALLY good .co may also work)

Here are some guidelines -

1) Short - 1-2 words - (maybe 3)

2) Combinations-
Or one word followed by - example - evolvevacationrental / [login to view URL]
- Vacation Rentals
-BNB
- or anything that signifies Vacation Rental industry / hospitality / stays etc. (NOT HOTEL)

3) Made up words
Be creative make up words - [login to view URL] / Skype /

4) Putting words (relevant to industry) guesthouse /

5) Cool mispelling example: Houzz /

6) Other languages for a word is okay - SuCasa

House - Hause

Blending two words - HOMETEL - home + hotel

I am super excited about this project and can not wait to see what you come up with - If you are a designer and have ideas for logo - let me know and we will hire to do that work separately.

    I am wondering does anyone have ONE REAL WORD that we can make into our brand.... Like - Casper - https://casper.com or Lapel - http://www.rentlapel.com/ (can compromise on the domain name) - it can be abstract or another way of describing who we are ... so excited to see what you come up with

      That likely depends on how much of a compromise you are willing to make on separating the brand name (consisting of one real word) from a matching available domain.

      How much of a compromise are you willing to make?

      I think it would also be helpful to upgrade the contest (as suggested below).

      Yup, I second that! (Although I've personally given up on this contest now, as it was starting to feel like a bit of a weird game - sorry CH but I mean seriously, more than 100 entries now and the brief keeps changing...It feels like we're all being taken for a ride here, sorry)

      In addition to an increase which Aleksandra is right about, consider a #sealed upgrade. Those of us who have sealed our entries have done so as an out-of-pocket cost.

      Please consider bumping this contest up with #sealed. It ensures high-quality entries that remain unique (rather than moving in one direction, based on your ratings).

      It's a very important step simply because there are so many choices and directions (evidenced by the fact that your ratings and feelings about the names continue to evolve, as they should).

      Again, sealing is the best way to make sure freelancers do not simply follow ratings and trends regarding other entries within the contest.

      The freelancing community's competitive spirit is alive and well, but it must walk hand-in-hand with our spirit of creative freedom. Your contest upgrades can preserve that balance.

      P.S. Jelana, I deleted my comment to fix a typo.

    Hello All - My partner pointed out to me that IF we use words like BNB it would be very limiting and would not really allow us to expand to other venture that we want to pursue in the future - So please use more expansive or non specific terms at the end of the words like - -Ville / BLVD or Items - Please also feel free to use the word and in between
