Trying to decide between two spanish site names

For my online magazine in English, I am planning to open a Spanish version too.

I bought two domain names. I don’t want to advertise the actual names here.

But lets say the first one is,

And the second one is

So the second word in both domains is the same but the one in first domain is singular, and the second one is plural version.

And assume that the word xxxxx is a physical thing.

Which one sounds better to your ears? I am only asking to native Spanish speakers, or to people with excellent Spanish knowledge, at or close to native language level…

Mmm... without a name both sound fine to me.

(Two different meanings, the first one "Derecho" = Law, second "Derechos" = rights)

If it is a physical thing...

Even if "physical" the first one can be "orange" (as the fruit, and/or the color) The second "naranjas" "oranges" only the fruit...

So, depending on your word, it may have a change of meaning, but otherwise, not much difference in terms on "sounding better to my ears".

(Hope it helps!)

Adding a simple 'S' to a thing doesn't always make it plural in Spanish. That is also true in English, by the way.

If you want to know the plural form of a word, that can be easily found in any Spanish dictionary.

Why don't you open one of them and then ask your users which form they like better?
