Question ID: 244250
I would like to find a name for my Ebay store. 
 My company name is Closeout Services Corp. I buy
large quantities of general consumer merchandise that are being closed
out or liquidated by manufactures and importers. I warehouse the goods
and offer them for resale. The notion of a name with connotations that
reflect the image I would like to create appeals to me. I.e. "Amazon"
Biggest strongest...,but I am open to something funny or lighter also.
My way of doing business is relaxed and very straight forward. I
guarantee everything 100%. I  offer lots of value, perhaps the best
prices in the world today. I am basically a trader or dealmaker with
many years of experience. I
sell in wholesale lot size or larger.(Bulk Lots is a term used at
Ebay) I would like to stay away from
using the words closeout or liquidation. They are both very over used
 and perhaps even have negative connotations to some.I enjoy the
action of it all. Here is a link to my ebay store;

Greetings Tomdavid:

I have reviewed your store and I have some ideas that I believe may
please you.  Please note that Google Answers offers a Clarification
feature whereby we may continue discussion before you rate and close
your question so if you have comments or additional suggestions, you
may post them to me and I'll continue my brainstorming.

For somewhat whimsical, my favorite is Gimongous, an urban slang term
that's a cross between gigantic and humongous. See for
validation.  You might also consider using "Gimongous Dealtime" as the
name although I like the simple Gimongous.

Because you feature close-outs and liquidations, it's a challenge to
create a name without making use of those references.  I understand
your hesitancy in using either term as some people do associate the
terms with sub-standard products.  However, I am one of those people
that does not associate either term with anything negative.  I
frequently employ both terms when I do personal searches for items.  I
relate to the words as positive for savings.  Therefore, I am
including a few references to those terms:


Colossal CloseOut 

Colossus CloseOuts

Capacious CloseOuts

Save with Dave


Titan Tom's


Mammoth DealTime

Stupendous DealTime



Empyrean  E-Deals  (or Edeals)
[Definition of empyrean @ "The highest reaches of
heaven, believed by the ancients to be a realm of pure fire or light. 
The abode of God and the angels; paradise.]

Infinite I-Deals (or i-Deals with the Internet "i")



Whopping Wholesale

WholeSave Wholesale


Super Duper Savings Scooper 

Mongo Mammoth

Moby Deals

Moby Picks

Walloping Wholesale

Thank you for the opportunity to create names for you and, again, if
you'd like more ideas, please address the direction you'd like me to
take through a clarification and I will be happy to respond.

Best regards,

Thank you for the quick response. Please give it one more shot. Forget
the restrictions I imposed initially. I like the following 2 ideas
better than the others:

1. Empyrean  E-Deals  (or Edeals) 
[Definition of empyrean @ "The highest reaches of
heaven, believed by the ancients to be a realm of pure fire or light.
The abode of God and the angels; paradise.]

2. Liquiteria 

 Shorter is better than longer  (1 word or 2). Empyrean shows a
certain seriousness which I like(although it might be a little too
obscure) and liquiteria is clever but reminds me of cafeteria which I
do not like.
Some names in the industry I like are:  Biglots(clever and friendly),
Consolidated Stores(serious and powerful), Oddlot, Value City,

What do you think of Sirplus?
I like the words trader(i.e. trading desk as an example), value,
maverick, contrarian, independent, smart, integrity down to earth, no
bull. No need to necessarily use any of these words. Just trying to
give my sense of things. Take it or leave it. Either way is OK. I am
really trying to get some new ideas in my head to work on. Probably
the name will have to come from me in the final analysis. Thanks, Tom

SirPlus - I like that!  Also SirPlus Surplus.

You are correct that the name will ultimately come from you although
you may use any of my suggestions without concerns about copyright or
anything licensing problems.  They are a part of your answer which you
contracted for a fee (just in case you did have reservations.)  I
should add that I did not search any of them in the patent/trademark
database at and that may be something you wish
to do before deciding on your name.  When you have narrowed your
choices, I'll be happy to perform the trademark searches for you. 
Just post your choices here in a clarification with the request for me
to search them.  Also, you didn't say if you wanted your name to also
be a domain name.  If so, please let me know as I would need to search
your choices in WhoIs for that availability as well.

Regarding the suggestion of "The Incredible Bulk" (which is *very*
cute) made by Researcher Jackburton-ga, anyone may comment on your
question even after it is answered by a Researcher.  This Comments
feature allows for more information sharing with customers and many
customers benefit from additional views on an answer, especially one
of this nature where ideas are requested.  You can tell the difference
between Google Answers Researchers and non-Researchers by looking at
the way their user name is presented - if it's highlighted in blue for
a link, this denotes that the comment is from a Researcher.  If the
nickname is in black text (no link), it is a non-Researcher.

I am in agreement for Empyrean as a stand alone name or with Edeals
and, although it is obscure, "empire" is easily denoted by it for most
people.  For me, Liquiteria denotes a wide variety of value choices
which is why I suggested that name.

I'll brainstorm with the additional terms you provided and have you
more choices by the end of the day.

Best regards,

UPDATE:  I'm continuing to formulate additional names and my apologies
for the delay.  Thanks for your continued patience.

Thank you for trying. I have learned that this is something I need to
do myself. Sincerely, Tom Lewis.

Greetings again, Tomdavid:

I understand why you wish to take the reins from here but I did come
up with four additional names for your consideration and wanted to
share them:

Maverick Salvage




If you would like me to perform additional searches for you (domain or
trademark) for names you personally create, please request them and I
will be happy to respond.  :)

Best regards,

Very clever. I can't stop smiling. I will consider it. I don't quite
understand how you are involved. Isn't someone else working on this?
sincerely, Tom David Lewis

Another comment from an onlooker - as cute as "The Incredible Bulk"
is, if you choose this, you are almost guaranteed to get a nasty
letter from Marvel Comics' lawyer for trademark infringement. (See
"Victor's Little Secret", "Sacks Fifth Avenue", and other similarly
punnish-named stores that got sued.)

There is already an eBay store called SirPlus!

Ouch! Good points. Thank you for the information. Back to the drawing
board. You must admit that they were both decent possibilities.
