    I'm starting up a business (can I say how frightening it is to write those words??)
    That is unless my meeting with a business consultant this week results in a decision that my idea is a thoroughly bad one. But I digress. One of the first things I need to do is decide on a business name and there you have it, my first stumbling block. Help!!
    So it's going to be bed linen basics, online, selling primarily to Gen Y.
    I've been considering something of a wordplay on "sheet" (along the lines of "Holy Sheet" but that's taken) but not sure if that's too crass? Target customer is young so hopefully not too prudish but you never know...
    Anyway, I'm all out of colloquial ways of saying bed/bedding/bedroom/sleep etc so if anyone's got clever ideas there I'm all ears :)

    Since you'll be an online biz, I'd suggest a simple, available domain name to determine your eventual business name.
    e.g. sheetsdirect.com.au is still available.

    Some good ideas there but most are already taken (would you believe @Biz that yours is still available? lol)

    the bed post
    lazybones
    the linen factory
    between the sheets, all gone

    sheetonline is too close to the existing sheetsontheline

    Under the covers is gone too but Undercover Linen is still available... hmm

    Naked in bed / good in bed are available!
    (Tag lines could go: Sheets so good you'll want to sleep Naked in Bed, or For all the things Good in Bed)

    I'm still kind of partial to The Good Sheet but the domain name .com is taken (.com.au is available though)

    Good In Bed seems to work on a couple of levels
