Welcome aboard

I'm not sure what you mean by 'gossip', but your description reminds me of Angie's List service which provides reviews/ratings of contractors.

Howdy!

When it comes to online business names...SEO's suggest that you use popular search words in the name. So, I'd suggest that you do some research on words that pertain to your business and go from there.

Good Luck!

Default You can try to make keyword friendly domain and business name

You can try to use high search ranking keyword domain and business name if you make search engine friendly.

If it is SOLELY about Rockhampton then that needs to be in the title. as it will help rank and also with clicks.

Why not go for around-rockhampton or inside -R..., or streets -of-r, or real-R... etcAlternatley somehtihng

Default Name Generator

There is a number of name generators on the internet, some of them check for domain availability too. Could be useful if you plan to bring your business online. Try makewords.com for instance, you can create random names and keyword domains.
