Keyword planner

The direct domain name isn’t everything, if you search well. If your name is California Green, it’s not going to search well. You can use Google for checking how your name would search and what comes up, or use a tool like: https://adwords.google.com/home/tools/keyword-planner/#?modal_active=none

For a generic example, California Green, it brings up green burials, green building, state parks etc. Change it to Humboldt Green, and there’s no competition.
