ThriftyName

Get a brand name for just $10

ThriftyName's first year and a fresh coat of paint

I launched this small side project in February of last year. How the time flies, eh? I try to be as completely transparent as possible with this project, so let's take a look at some data!

From February 23 2021 to January 4 2022:

Not too bad considering I did zero advertising (besides sharing the project in my Twitter and Mastodon circles). FYI - the revenue might look off because the first few sales were set at $5, which I changed recently to $10.

Goals for next year

New year, new website design

So with 2022 officially here, the new year has given me a perfect excuse to redesign this product website! And by "redesign" I mean gut everything down back to HTML basics (similar to my own personal website). I'm still using PHPetite as my static site generator, but have greatly reduced performance issues by tossing custom fonts and removing the beefy Simpsons GIF from the homepage.

This project is an ever-growing beast, so I expect things to change at anytime moving forward. We'll see what happens!

Thank you dear customers

To those of you of have purchased your own ThriftyName brand name from me - thank you! To those of you possibly stumbling across this site for the first time, what are you waiting for? Snag a name for your product now!

Free product names (with domains!)

I'm pretty obsessed with creating custom product names and finding suitable domains for said names. Hence the creation of ThriftyName.

But sometimes it helps to give back to the hacker community. Though these product names won't be tailored specifically to your project (look into getting your own custom one for $10), I'm sure they might work just fine for those really trying to pinch their pennies.

Fair warning

I don't own these domains - this is based on a first-come, first-serve basis. As the time of writing these domains are available, but I'm sure that could change in the future!

Alright, let's get into it! (FYI: The links below are affiliate-based)

About ThriftyName

ThriftyName is a small, amusing side venture created by me, Bradley Taunt (aka tdarb).

I built this to satisfy my passion for naming products and side projects. Now, instead of having to build out a side project just to give it a cool name, I can simply do that for others!

Why only $10?

Everyone has an angle - a gimmick. I guess the silly price tag is mine.

My original thought process was, "Oh hey, this might bring more attention to my other side projects, blah blah blah". Eventually that faded into the background when I realized how much I love coming up with creative brand names.

So really, the price kind of makes sense after all...

This is could be you! Look at all that saved money!

I never joke about money. Yes - it is just $10 for each brand name that you purchase.

I thought the text above was pretty clear...

Although, there are some things to consider:

  • I can't guarantee that you will "love" the name1
  • No "do-overs" or options to get multiple names
  • All sales are final - there are no refunds available

For a cleaner breakdown, I suggest skimming through the very straightforward Terms and Conditions.

Need some examples of products I've named?

Why get a name from you?

I'm Brad Taunt, a UI/UX designer, marketer and developer with over a decade of experience building websites, apps and software products.

I find naming products or services to be one of the most enjoyable and creative processes during the initial start-up phase. I've also found that a lot of indie devs DON'T enjoy this part when they're busy just trying to build out their product2.

So, I felt like this was a great way for me to help.

But enough chit-chat: Get a brand name now


  1. But I truly hope that you will! I take pride in the creative names I develop for customers. 

  2. Generalized statement. I'm sure there are many developers who love to name their projects :)
