I need to create a name for a company.  The company streams video
games to 3G mobile phones.  I would like stream in the name.

For example, Live Stream is a great name. However domain and trademark
searches don't work for that name.

Either <word> stream or stream <word>.  The word other than stream can
be nonensense but needs to 'roll off the tongue.'

The domain name needs to be free and an initial trademark search on should be completed.  The name will work primarily in a B2B
context but may also be used in a consumer content (e.g. Live Games).

going to be the Most Valuable Players of the games you provide them.

I also think DreamStream would be an excellent name.  The domain name

The name happens to be a registered trademark in the US for a plumbing
supplies company, but that should not prevent its use as a name for a
mobile phone game streaming service.

The main test of trademark infringment has to do with causing
confusion among the public at large.  There are many businessess named
AAA, but only one auto services company can call itself AAA  -- use by
another automobile-related company would be a problem, since it would
cause confusion.

Similarly, there can be more than one business named DreamStream as
long as the two businesses are so dissimilar, that there is no
likelihood of confusing one with the other.

My experience with name-my-business questions in the past is that a
name either works for a customer, or falls totally flat.  There's no
way of knowing in advance which will be the case with the names I've
