I was just curious on how people think up of their names, whether it’s a nickname on here or an actual studio.

Been looking at some brilliant names and trying to come up with one for my own portfolio.

Mine’s not an actual studio, just Toivo was a nickname I used, and I added Media to make it sound more professional. It’s fun to come up with the name though, because it’s your own personal brand. :)

Hi, I want a name that means more than one thing, and also related to sound or music…’SonicByte’

Then also I use that name for my little web design studio, hehe…

I personally find it a lot harder to come up with a name I like instantly for myself, but thinking of different names for things not related to me was a doddle.

You could look on one of those websites that tells you about the origins and meanings of your christian name and surname, and see if that gives you any inspiration. Maybe combine that with something about the products you want to offer in your portfolio.

That’s a good idea, I have thought about a few names like:

You + Me Designs/Studios (You plus Me) Half Full (Website would be like… We are Half Full) Dunno about that one.

You+Me has quite a good ring to it. Don’t know if + symbol is allowed in username though.

Not sure either, domain would have to be youandme so maybe consistent I guess. but I have a feeling domain and username would be taken.
