I need help with naming my Retro Motocross inspired Men’s Jogging Suit line. The name should evoke the following in no particular order.
1973 Honda CR250M Elsinore: a classic
Charles Bronson: machismo and style and mannerisms
Steve Mc Queen: riding prowess / specifically his wheelies and willingness to perform his own stunts
Championships: can’t win enough of um!!!
SuperMoto or Supercross: in general
Fédération Française de Motocyclisme (FFM): most of my prospective clients are french Canadian
Al Lettieri: Mostly his side burns and devil may care attitude
Lake Elsinore: Heaven
The Temescal Wash: fond memories, so many bewildered Saturdays 😉
The majestic Santa Ana Mountain range.
Golden Smog (the supergroup): not sure how it relates but it would be nice if we got them into the mix, perhaps spokesman / spokespersons
Chrome & Woodcut: Rustic but shiny and very muscular typeface?
Glamis /Imperial Sand Dunes: see logo colors
Names I have am considering as potential winners! Note racing could be a motif.
First Place: Jumpsuit
Second Place: Fourstroke & Seven Years
Third Place: Big Air Not Very Formal Wear
Honorable Mention: Retro Motocross Rising
Mexican Pink & Moonstone Blue
Mountbatten Pink Metallic Seaweed
Medium Candy Apple Red & Gainsboro Gray
International Orange & Granny Smith Apple
The “ACME Namemaker” suggested these. I think they have potential, but I am sure we could do better.

Love it. Here are some ideas, which you already had, but just perhaps didn’t realize it 😉 :
Elsinore (not only OC, but Hamlet’s castle!)
Devil May Care
Woodcut & Chrome
Since Alexander McQueen was a famous fashion designer, you can’t go there. But Bronson would be perfect for this men’s apparel brand. Just the right vibe. See the motorcycle chase scene in his 1972 classic, The Mechanic:
Perfect for these retro jogging suits!

Thanks Shark! For the quick and very through “freelancing” work, YeeHaw! some of those are pretty far out there though. Impressive! Do you think “GSNSFW or GOLDEN SMOG NOT SO FORMAL WEAR, or in the French – GOLDEN SMOG PORTENT PAS SI FORMEL – might have a chance? I could always fall back on either OFF-ROAD RASH or TEMESCAL WASH but that would mean I would need to offer a “prewash” set and with it an Excedrin headache worth of extra labor considerations involved. OUCH! This naming is a tough nut to crack!

BTW: The aggressive and reckless driving (particularly driving over someones freshly washed and waxed car) featured in the clip from the “The Mechanic” is no longer condoned by the motorcycle community or for that matter any self respecting motorcyclist enthusiast (at least not round these parts). Perhaps a bit off topic, but worth mentioning.

Thanks Snark, Franny and Quark for all of your great work. I love StuntDouble. I am considering StuntDoubleKnit as a fabric option/name. Is that considered “gilding the lily”as the immortal bard once said, in the naming business? If so I am busted.
