    Question Get me to

    Hi!


    I'd like to know if the expression "get me to" has the primary meaning of taking me to a given location, or people would rather think of making me to do something by seeing this expression.


    I'm trying to come up with a good and short name for my website, which focuses on carpooling, but I'm not sure if this would be good enough? It should suggest, that the website will help, to get you from point A to point B.


    All suggestions are welcome.


    Thank you and best regards,
    Tamas

    Re: Get me to

    It needs to be clear, catchy and unambiguous.
    "Get me to" doesn't work for me.
    How about something like "rent-a-seat", "tripshare", "share-UR-trip" or "commuterpool" etc

    Regards

    Re: Get me to

    If you called your website "Get Me To", it would be ambiguous. Without looking at the content, I would not know if it was a travel site ("Book Me A Ticket"), a travel information site ("Show Me How To Get To"), a travel sharing site ("Help Me To Get To/Can I Have a Lift?") or a site where you want people to convince you to do something ("Get Me To Lose Weight/Stop Drinking/Be Nicer to People").
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Get me to

    Good points!

    It wasn't obvious at first, but now it's clear that it's too vague to use it just like that.

    Route21, your suggestions are reasonable, however they are all taken, as almost any other good name (for .com). My idea was to use an expression that ends with "to", so that I could get a domain from ".to".

    Please let me know if you have any other good ideas that could work.

    Thank you once again!

    Re: Get me to

    "SpareCarSeat.to", "CarTrip.to", "CarShare.to" .......

    PS: You didn't mention the ".to" domain in the OP.

    Re: Get me to

    Why do you want to use the national domain name for Tonga, when you are a Hungarian speaker living in Romania?

    Re: Get me to

    Because I thought I could use the "to" ending so that it completes nicely an expression or a verb. Like "upload.to", "share.it" something like that. I'm just trying to be creative and pick something that I can use internationally later on, if it works as planned, not necessarily just in one country.
