Searching for unused URLs

I'm trying to locate a decent URL for a new corporate finance / investment banking business (someone else is going to run the thing).

 

So, the idea I have is to put a list of 20-50 words into a "URL Generator" and have it spit out any URLs that use no more than two or three of the words to form the URL.

 

For example, if I put "Black" "Plaza" "White" "Bridge", "Dome" and "Golden" in this URL Generator ... it may come back with www.BlackGlacier.com and www.DomeBridge.com ... but would not give me www.BlackPlazaWhiteBridgeDomeGolden.com ...

 

Currently, I can go to godaddy.com and do one combination at a time and it will suggest alternatives, but I still have to go (painstakingly slowly) through them one at a time.

 

Any of you ever see a URL generator / search engine like this or have any ideas on how I could accomplish something like this more easily?

Put the keywords in a one-column database table then intentionally generate a cartesian product by joining it to itself.

If the table name is KEYWORD_TAB and the column name is KEYWORD_COL:

 

 

SELECT *  FROM KEYWORD_TAB a,		KEYWORD_TAB bWHERE a.KEYWORD_COL <> b.KEYWORD_COL

 

 

This will give you a list of two-word URLs.

 

 

If you want a three-word list, join three copies of the table:

 

SELECT * FROM KEYWORD_TAB a,	   KEYWORD_TAB b,	   KEYWORD_TAB cWHERE a.KEYWORD_COL <> b.KEYWORD_COLAND a.KEYWORD_COL <> c.KEYWORD_COLAND b.KEYWORD_COL <> c.KEYWORD_COL;
