Need help with name for new company


Recommended Posts

So I am in the process of starting a skateboard company that also designs clothes. But I am stuck on a name. I want something short and easy to remember, but is also catchy. Any ideas you guys could throw out would be greatly appreciated.

How about Chuck?

Is a cool skate/surf type name, similar to huck... catchy t shirt, ad slogans "chuck it.." :o)

one problem is that it may infringe the Barfoot brand perhaps?


My intellectual property can be bought for a tee or a deck :o)

What type of boards are you manufacturing? Do your boards have a lot of pop? Are they made for hills or ramps? What is your target demographic?

I'd stay away from anything related to the lingo of the culture, they sometimes sound a bit too cheesy.

Just a list of ideas for alternatives. Skateboard slang (dunno if any of these are already branded). most of which you probably already know- mostly I'm defining them for non-skaters.

Mongo- to push off with the opposite foot; it's also the name of Ming the Merciless's planet in Flash Gordon so you could have a 1950's-esque space logo

Vert (or Vertical)- the act of skating in a park

Slaughter- to bust a trick; logo could have a blood spatter to suggest an injury sustained from stuntwork OR an actual slaughter

Ledge- Concrete for grinding

Rail- Metal for grinding

Dirtpile- the act of doing something forbidden

Shred- to do something well

Radical/Hammmer/Banger- all words referring to an excellent execution of tricks or show of skill

You an Avril Lavigne fan? sk8rboi, perhaps? :D

I don't know if this is sk8erboi lingo or not, but I've heard the phrase "hang ten" tossed around amongst those who ride boards. Would that work?

Because I really like birds, naturally I would go with King Rail... but, keep in mind if you go with that that a King Rail isn't a typically 'cool' bird like a hawk or falcon or something; it's a silly, cute waterbird. Of course, you could use it effectively as a symbol/logo whatever, but if that is not the direction you're going for you may not want to use it.

Here's a reference pic.
