    Is this naming grammatically correct?

    Hi,

    I need a suggestion. I'm not sure if there is any thing called mistakes in names. So here goes.

    I want to name my website as "Speed jobs" , But I'm not sure that's grammatically correct or not. So thinking about "Speedy Jobs" too.

    Please help me out on this one.!
    Thanks

    Welcome to Using English.

    What sort of jobs are you advertising on your site? My instinct says to use "Speedy" but if it's about race cars, then "speed" might be right.

    Make sure you search to make sure that no one else is using it the way you want to use it.

    Thanks for welcoming me.

    Well its just a name. Surely not limited to race cars (actually that one doesn't exist in my part of the world). Its a general job site.

    So u think any of the two (speed/ speedy) can be used?

    Speed jobs are jobs that have something to do with speed, about travelling very quickly.
    Speedy jobs are jobs that are done quickly.

    I expect you want the latter.
