Hi all,

I hope this topic is okay with the forum rules...

I'm planning to open an online store with stylish cycling equipment and apparel and I become desperate about choosing the name. I have two ideas at the moment: "Velo Boutique" or "Domestique". First one seems more fitting, the second one is more suitable to put some story behind (something like "Domestique is here to help you enjoy the ride").

Any opinions or suggestions are welcome:)

All the best names have gone. Velo boutique is in London, and there is a Domestique somewhere in Idaho.

Valbrona: I will not operate on the English-speaking market and these are not registered trademarks, so it should not be a problem. But anyway, can you post links? I did not manage to find them.

Use anything as long as it does not contain Roubaix, Allez, Tarmac...

"Chapeau! Cycles."

The Lanterne Rouge Shop (but I guess that has a negative connotation).

How about Roubaix? Just kidding.

Whatver you call it, good luck with it!

Here is the US, you can duplicate names from other states. Businesses are licensed State by State, so if I want I could have Domestique as my bike shop name, as long as I don't register for a business license in Idaho

AndreLM: yes, rather stay far away from the big "S" :D.
53x12: haha, great idea, but it is an UK brand, which I will have on stock :-).
Waldo: Thanks for useful info.
