So sorry, t0psales I just don't have any ideas right now as to what name might be a good one for your store. But this thread should help you come up with a good one!

Animal Planet

Woof, Meow, Quack
Urban Safari

In regards to COM or AU, I wouldn't personally consider there to be any negative or positive implications either way.

all the good names are being held by a company that sells domain names, and yes, they are for sale..

Wondering, would hyphenated names be OK or would that cause problems for consumers?

I wouldn't personally suggest a hyphen, can be very confusing and you really do want the URL to be as clear as possible. Of course your URL doesn't have to be your actual store's name, remember that. You could have a pet store called Mud Ducks Incorporated, and then a URL MDI.com for example.

The point being that you shouldn't get too tied up on limiting a business name because you can't get the duplicate URL. Another option is to consider different domain extensions, .net, .co, .biz and so on. However, if you do that, then be really careful about who does have the popular choices, such as .com or .com.au, because if people do make a mistake and enter the wrong extension by mistake, then you will be directing business to your competition.

Last idea, if you do find a name that is locked up you can try and flip a letter in the word maybe. So if there is an F in the word, maybe flip it for a PH, then really highlight the PH and turn it into a logo type of thing.
