Name choosing: Zombish, Wubel or LinkBilly?

Hi,

I was looking for hours for the right group to ask this question, me and my friend are making a local site that is similiar to reddit or digg, but it sorts the links you see using a different (and hopefully better) algorithm, we sat more than 8 hours and raised names (that were not already taken). We tried to narrow all these that we didn't like and we got only 3:
wubel.com
zombish.com
linkbilly.com

Wubel is cute, simple and short word.
Zombish is a "real" word, and cute.
LinkBilly, we derivated it from Hill Billy, and we thought that we later might match a virtual character to this name.

It was really hard for us to decide which one to use,
We'll appreciate any opinion.

Thanks in advance,
Daniel.

How do you prononce Wubel ? Like Yubel or Vubel? Anyway it's strange in French.

Hi Raphael,

Thanks for the comment! much appreciated.
Wubel is pronounced more like who-bel.

I think LinkBill sounds like you are going to get a bill for links :) I also think linkitbilly is a nice idea but it makes the name too long.

I would go with LinkBilly.

Although to be honest Zombish might have a bigger effect. And like atract more visitors :-) (I think)

Hey Danial,

IMO Wubel seems far better than the rest. For simple reasons such as:
1. Easy to pronounce/say.
2. Sounds cool/teenage.

Cheers.

Hi Daniel,
I like both Wubel and Linkbilly. The first one is easier to pronunce and sound more "serious", the second sound more "friendly".
Many wishes
Paolo
