Well, I originally wanted "Night Sky" but both 
nightsky.com and nightskydesigns.com were taken. Then 
my husband said "What about Night Visions? You know, 
like dreams." It was available so I registered it. Last 
fall I registered it with the city of Boston so I can 
use NightVisions.com on business stuf instead of my 
name. And last week I got EIN, so I don't need to 
give strangers my SS#.

So, my advice is think of things you like, and get a 
bunch of friends together to brainstorm. Have a web 
browser handy to check URL availability, and alcohol 
might help in some cases :)
