    "Speed Empire" vs. "Empire of Speed"

    Hi,

    What is correct and why?

    Speed Empire

    or

    Empire of Speed

    I want use it as name of my car enthusiast web (I already bought both domains names). I prefer "Speed Empire" but I'm afraid that's not grammatically correct. I actually found only one usage of noun + Empire: Broadwalk Empire (TV series). I know that adjective + Empire is grammatically correct, but I'm not sure that name "Speedy Empire" is what I want. So, is "Speed Empire" grammatically correct or not?

    Please excuse my poor English.

    Thanks very much!

    Both titles are OK. However, you should know that "speed" is also a term used for amphetamine drugs.

    Yes, it is.

    Judging by some website names, their owners don't care whether they are grammatical or not.
