|I have narrowed it down to 4 names that are all available and all are a play on loosely the same two words... I've vetted the names amongst friends and no one has pointed out negative connotations or potential pitfalls to any of them. In my eyes i like all the names and don't really favor any one of the names ahead of the others (since they're all basically different forms and synonyms of the same play on words)|
How then do I get a bigger data set to make my decision? Google adwords testing? Asking a question on mechanical turk?
What method will yield better results, are there others?...
Essentially I'd like to use the internet to mimic a market test, what's the best way? what's been successful for you guys?
