Clients and students has stressed over and over about choosing a good domain name.

Contrary to what others say, from a search perspective, what domain name you choose does not matter.

So once you pick a domain name that is easy to remember and easy to spell, put your energies into selecting good categories, setting your permalink structures such that the categories are part of the URL, and choosing good slugs (file names) for your posts.

This is a much more fruitful use of your time and energy.
