wow...u guys have lots lots of names!

hmm...why don't we stick with the original name : Aiyo? and maybe just add one more 'I' or one more 'O' to it? i don't think it's a good idea to have everyone go through the polls again. it really does take a long time plus with so many names.

That's a lot:P.

I agree with you that the name shouldn't have the word 'asia' in it, as soon as a name is like ***asia or asia***, it will probably appear a bit cliché ^^ .

There is a lot of 'Asia' in your ideas though, but your post made me think of:

* Like you suggested, BAO, but as in --> Biteofbao (bao = blogging asians online) (like last time)
* Riceranters (= us) sounds great to me!
* BambooBabble (bamboobabblers)
* BakedBamboo (because we're hotminded with ideas)
* Bamboozled (bamboozle) = confused or tricked / was swindled or conned
* BambooBandage (to heal... your nosiness wounds??)
* BannedBamboo
* Barofbamboo (bamboobar)
* Barbaric Bamboo (because some people think Asians are barbaric)
* BareBamboo (Bamboogoesbare) (because we give a peek into Asia)
* BambooBeasts
* BambooBun
* BambooBillabong
* BillionBarsofBamboo (of East-Asians)
* BambooBite
* BitterBamboo
* BambooBits
* BaoBits
* Blackeyed Bamboo (because. Asians are blackeyed)
* BeadedBamboo (every bead a topic??)
* BambooBlasphemy (Blasphemy is quite a misplaced word here, but what I mean to say is we invalidate prejudices on Asia)
* BlasphemistBao
* BambooBlend (Jap, Kor, Chin mixed together)
* BambooBlithe
* BambooBlurtout
* Baoblurtout
* BoilingBao
* BoilingBamboo (hotminded again)
* BoldBamboo
* BoldBao
* Confuss (Confucius (which I think is in all three cultures) + Confess)/ we-confuss-it
* BambooBomb
* Bombproof Bamboo
* BornAsBamboo
* BornAsBao
* BaoBoundaries
* Bamboo Boundaries
* DwellingDumplings (we are the dumplings)

Hmmm, the thing with names is, you can keep on thinking and thinking and thinking forever, because you'll always feel like you can think of better ones, but there just needs to be a moment to bring the brainstorming to a close Razz. For us, that's... Thursday, because starting from Friday the decision will be made.

And then finally we'll be able to put this name-thing to an end : ).

Right?
Yes Wink !

I think we should proceed like this: we'll leave this discussion open until this Thursday. This means that we can suggest domainnames for another three days. Friday, Saturday and Sunday there'll be a poll, and on Monday I'll cut the knot and decide. And then it's already the week during which I'm going to construct things with Rob ^^ .

Agreed?

Next: as for the logo and lay-out, I have already asked someone to do this for us (although he's still working with 'AIYO!'). He's amazing at drawing and Rob's able to turn it into a digital logo - I trust him 100% in this, he's a great artist. But, as he won't be in the Netherlands next week, it'll mean we will have to wait another two weeks before the logo's finished. Thus next week, during my appointment with Rob, we're going to focus on registering a domainname and the technical aspects, exploring our possibilities, but please do not expect the site to be completely finished by then. Even, as soon as the blog is up, we might discover some flaws or come up with new ideas, we'll be refining the blog non-stop ^^ .

Anyhow, be sure I'll keep you updated Very Happy .

the japanese version is as far as I know kawaii, but then again ther might be some shout with an a. it would be triple A. Which is kind of a good rating. Our crown prince Willem Alexander once made a huge faux pas. He already had two children whose first name starts with an a, then named the third girl Ariane. The crown prince joked that they went for a triple A rating. Which in his case wouldn't be a very smart remark, since he's married to maxima zorreguieta, and her father was a part of the Argentinian military gunta of jorge videla. And guess how the death squad there was named? The triple A's Razz.
Just a funny little story ^^


Sayaiyo sounds really catchy
aiyo!aiya? may sound good but you cant use exclamation or question marks in urls. But just the combi, AiyoAiya or AiyaAiyo sounds pretty good. Or aiyoaiyo
I like let's go aiyo too. Omg I like most of them.
Aiyoteam is better than aiyoblog but still a tad lame.

Aiyou, too?? Omg I thought we were being original Razz.

All right then. What other suggestions can I come up with..

Shoutaiyo?/ Shout-Aiyo?
Sayaiyo?/ Say-Aiyo?
Aiiyo?
Aeyo? <-- Somehow the 'ae' makes me think of Korean, the yo of Japanese, and just the idea of Aiyo of Chinese.. haha OK I know it doesn't make sense, but it's true:P.
aiyoteam.com
letsgoaiyo.com <-- Lets gO aiyO ^^ (like, let's go aiyo about everything we post)
aiyoblog.com
aiyorepublic.com
aiyoaiya.com (AIYO? AIYA!, sounds nice too)
aiyoSOS
aiyobleep
aiyoaigoo ... - is there a Japanese version too?
aiyoflash
aiyobuzz
aiyoaiyo

...

Seriously this is the lowest level my creativity has ever reached.

... going to brainstorm some more welldoneyay .

Okay, so there are three ways we can go:

1. Another name (e.g. Aigoo instead of Aiyo)
2. Another domain (e.g. aiyo.net)
3. Adding something to Aiyo (e.g. Aiyoblog.com/ say-aiyo.com)

Personally, I think I prefer #3 - but I had another idea: can't we just spell aiyo as aiyou ^^ ?

Also, I know there is some korean shout with a similar 'feel' to it, at least to me. The meaning is quite different though
Aegyoo = Cute, kinda like kawaii in japanese
Aigoo = ?? Perhaps the koreans know?
btw, aiya.com is taken as well

Hey this indeed is a serious issue we need to pay attention to :

AIYO.COM has been taken already: What is our alternative?

What we have now, are:

* AIYOBLOG.COM (Personally, I think it's okay, but I agree with Daniel too that it's a bit dull)
* AIYOYO.COM (I think it's funny, but somehow it just doesnt...'look' right? I like AIYO because it's catchy etc. but also because it's short yet. Powerful. Is that the right word Rolling Eyes ? Well, you get the idea: AIYO! is a kind of energetic word and I think AIYOYO would detract that)

Any more suggestions, people ^^ ?

What about AiyoYo!

It's the same as Aiyo but sometimes ppl just add one more yo. It might sound funnier.

DISCUSSIONS GO HERE

@ Shimen

I think AIYOBLOG kills the flow of AIYO. Another ending or another name perhaps? BLOG just sounds a bit obvious and dull, it'd be like www.yahoosearchengine.com or www.googlesearchengine.com -_- just not as nice...
