Renaming Car-Wallpapers.net

All right, car-wallpapers.net is doing incredible. It has only been online for a few weeks now, and already has about 1/5th the traffic of UB! However one thing that's always bothered me is the brute simplicity of the name. It's straight-forward, but horrible branding for a website. There are too many other websites with a similar name (just one typo away), and with a non .com TLD and a dash in the name, remembering the domain to type in later may be tricky. Also because of it's success, I'd like to expand the site beyond car wallpapers and into new categories. I also run a few other websites unrelated to cars, such as sports fansites, and I'd like to offer wallpapers in a sidebar format similar to on UB. The car wallpapers section will become a subdomain of whatever the new website name is, such as cars.omgcooldesktop.com.

That said, does anyone have any ideas for a non-industry specific wallpaper related website name, that's catchy, brandable, and unique? Haha, any ideas are welcome!

I think you're missing my point. haha

To expand beyond cars, I need a non-car name, like dotpapers.com or blinkdesktop.com or desktopfoam.com. Something generic. Then I would make it cars.blinkdesktop.com (or whatever domain chosen), with cars being a subdomain. That way I could also do things like nature.blinkdesktop.com, etc.
