Is a Brandable Name a Word?

Is a Brandable Name a Word  Is a Brandable Name a Word?

So we’ve been having some big discussions here at the Get Domainer office recently and we thought we would share it with you.  The discussion occurred when someone referred to a brandable name as a word.  There were some brief name calling but in the end the main objection is that some people consider the brandable names a word and the others do not.  There are two major camps and things are heating up around here.

Now while we must say both camps love brandable names and brandable domain names the heat really starts when we call them words.  Half of the Get Domainer camp feal that because the brandable name is made up and you would not find this name in a dictionary that the name is not a word.

The other camp feels that just because the bradable name is made up and even though it’s not in a dictionary it doesn’t matter it is still a word.  A word just doesn’t become a word when it is put in a dictionary, a word becomes a word when it has meaning and it is used.

Perhaps both sides of this debate are correct; could this be possible?  Maybe these brandable domain names aren’t words until someone gives them meaning.  If someone were to buy “Fydox” while that brandable domain name doesn’t have meaning now, perhaps when the owner attaches it to their technology company, only then does it have a meaning and transform into a word.

Once someone gets a brandable domain name and give it a purpose then the brandable name becomes a word, because words need to have a meaning to exist.  What do you think about this debate?  Are brandable names words?  Do “words” need a purpose before they become words?

We would love to hear what you think about this debate, let us know leave us some comments below.  If you are looking to get a brandable domain name check out our main page and check out more info about brandable domain names here.

    Can everyone be right? I guess what I mean by that is that half your staff is right because word by definition need a meaning but once you assign a brandable to a company or something then it has meaning and the other half of your staff is also correct.

    I hope I didn’t cause more issues in the brandable debut! Thanks for the posting anyway, i found it quite interesting.

      Thank your for weighing in our our brandable domain name debate!

      We think you’re right, that brandable domains or a brandable words for that matter, are not words because they don’t exactly have a meaning until you assign them one. For a word to be a word or a brandable to be a word they need to have a meaning and inherently brandable domain names don’t have meanings (even if brandable names have roots), they mean nothing until they are assigned a purpose.

      We found this an interesting topic and thought we would bring it to you to weigh in. Thanks for your comment!

      Thanks for your comment. We like to think of some of these blogs as mini classes for people starting businesses but we are more then happy to hear that you are using this site for your college course. We want to spread the word of the how important it is for a company to have a matching domain name to their company name and of that, the domain name has to be the .com domain name.

      Thank you for your comment and we hope you are doing well in your class.
