I need to name a fictitious sporting goods company. This company will pretend to be a online retailer like REI who sells GPS watches, camping gear, and bikes. Although not required, the name should not already be a registered domain. The name needs to be authentic and not cheesy. Think "Gander Mountain" or "Sport Chalet". Help me name this company!

The only downside is the price: is there any freeware that does something similar, that is easy to use and integrate in Word? Thanks.
