Hey Stephan Eisfeld, thanks for reaching out!

It is not possible to buy or choose your own words. All the 3 word addresses are randomly allocated and completely fixed, meaning that they can be used offline, which would not be possible if people were able to make changes all the time.

We have considered, and tested, a system where people could buy words of their own choosing. However, such name changes would not be available to offline users, undermining the idea of what3words as a universal system that never changes.  

When picking a what3words address for your business/home, we find our users either pick an exact spot such as a front door, or finding an adjacent combination they prefer. Follow the steps here ( to find a what3words address.
