Those who know me, know I’m full of ideas. Some are dumb while some really shine. And for some reason this time, I am stuck in the middle. I came up with the absolute most coolest domain name ever, but can’t figure out what to do with it. It is such a Web 2.5 (beta) name, it’s gotta be great, and I’m having a heck of a time nailing it down.

So, I need some help. Give me some ideas on what do with the name, what kind of site/service it would/could/should be.

Ready? Here’s the name…, from my background and family history, a combination of “latino” and “gringo”.

So, what do you think? Help me out, and you *know* I’ll treat you right.

A small business owners community site, serving both the Latino and Gringo communities in the Inland Empire area. You could then recruit local business leaders to speak at "user group" events. That way you'd attract more members to the group. Maybe the goal of the site/user group would be for its members to work together, like a guild, and solve each others business problems (funding, accounting, marketing, etc.)

I read an interesting article about the middle ages and how communities worked closely to help each other out economically. Really inspiring.

Nice, I like that idea, as had been banging around the idea of some sort of local social networking site.

Any other thoughts out there?

Hey Paul,
Thanks for the suggestions, but I already have the domain, just want some ideas on what type of business would fit that name?
