    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

     

     

    Logo Colors:

     

    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!)
    Bronson
    Machismo
    McQueen
    Stuntman
    Moto
    Supercross
    Fédération
    Lettieri
    Sideburn
    Devil May Care
    Attitude
    Heaven
    Temescal Wash
    Majestic
    Santa Ana
    Range
    Chrome
    Woodcut
    Woodcut & Chrome
    Rustic
    Muscular
    Glamis
    Imperial
    Mountbatten
    Gainsboro Gray
    International

    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!

    BTW: I am willing to trade tagline work for some “extra hands” working on this name for my Jogging Suit line.

    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.

    Now you’ve got another name: Lilygilder.

    Yes, StuntDouble is very good — Franny has been on a tear here in the Forum.
