You can now select the language when generating domain names with Overlapping words or Alliterations.
In the example below, we’re looking for a name for a strategic consulting business. We want the name to reflect reliability, vision, intelligence, inspiration etc. So we combine partial words like “inspir”, “advis”, “strat”, “vision”, “smart” with the Latin dictionary (in addition to English).
Names based on Latin can usually be pronounced in English. This results in generated names like Visionis, Visionatus, Stratorial, Inspirium, Smartimus.
To take advantage of NameStation’s most powerful domain search tools, it’s important to know, which keyword lists to use. There are over 170 preset lists that can be combined and merged, so a more efficient way of selecting and finding the right ones was needed. Today, the new searching and browsing controls have now been completed and awaiting your feedback.
First click opens up the list browser. For new users, this is a good way to start exploring, which lists we have. Clicking on any list performs a search with it. The Keyword List dropdown also functions as a search field.
Just start typing the List name, contest name, or any keyword and it will instantly display all Lists (including Contest Lists and Custom Lists) containing the search term.
What do you think – do they make finding the relevant lists easier, is there room for improvement?
We’ve added two new lists for generating business names:
- Business Name Prefixes – containing words commonly used in compound business names, such as Archer, Pathway, Allied, Union, Imperial, Redwood, Open, Epic, Icon, Venture.
- Business Name Suffixes – words associated with different trades, consulting, management, services.
Just a few minutes experimenting with those lists has already revealed promising results. All these domains are currently available:

NameStation’s domain name generators now support a total of 67 domain extensions. Today’s additions include:
In the past few days, you may have noticed a few discrepancies occurring in the Talent Points calculations. We were working on a more reliable way to tally Points – and the new system has now been deployed. If you should notice any missing points (hopefully this is very unlikely now), we can add them retroactively.
On every Contest page, there is now a new Points tab, where you can keep track of the awarded and remaining Points for that Contest.
Today we released a number of layout changes to our search forms, hopefully making them easier to understand and use. As with all new things, there may be some glitches here and there. What do you think, is there anything we could improve?
There were also a couple of changes in the menu structure. The Variations search form no longer exists, because the Variations search results are now displayed when using the Quick Search box in the header. With a single keyword, we’re adding a number of popular affixes and TLDs. With more keywords, we’re showing different combinations, singular and plural forms.
The Hand-picked domains page is now in the Keyword Domains section.
Overlaps and Alliterations are now part of Keyword Domains search, instead of Dictionary Domains.
We just launched a couple of UI improvements.
The topmost search box now stays put, when you scroll down the page. This is especially useful in long domain search results pages. If you get an idea for a name, you can quickly check exact match domains without having to scroll back to top.
The quick search box is visible on all pages. If the search term is a dictionary word, we’ll bring up the definition, related words and the Lists where this word occurs. All those links lead to new searches. If the term is not a dictionary word, then we’ll simply show more alternative variations.
Header navigation has changed as well, a few more menu items that lead to pages that previously may have been difficult to find.
Share your thoughts – what do you think of these changes, would you like to see anything added or removed?
Typing a keyword into the Quick Search box now returns the keyword definition, related words and all Lists, where this keyword occurs.
Contest Discussion now has formatting controls that allow links and basic HTML. This way, we can better share search techniques during the contest.
