Re: Food.com 馔

馔 means "prepared food" being served on the table, or we sometimes translate it as "dishes", example: 馔玉 or 美馔. It's not "food" in general.

You probably can't find anybody using this word by itself to mean "food" in the last 200 years. It's an archaic word when used by itself.

Re: Food.com 馔

As a website or a portal destination 馔 will be just fine.

And - most dictionaries do translate it as 'food'

I think you are missing the point that Giant made.
Unfortunately the dictionaries don't differentiate between subtle differences in meanings to native speakers.

Bill,
Only about 2500-3500 characters are called common Chinese characters. 15,000 is an outrage number.

Chck out ths stuff (not mine):

razr, lol,

wiki
Use in various languages
Syllabic abbreviations are not widely used in English or French, but are common in certain languages, like German and Russian.

They prevailed in Germany under the Nazis and in the Soviet Union for naming the plethora of new bureaucratic organizations. For example, Gestapo stands for Geheime Staats-Polizei, or "secret state police". This has given syllabic abbreviations a negative connotation, even though they were used in Germany before the Nazis, such as Schupo for Schutzpolizist. Even now Germans call part of their police Kripo for Kriminalpolizei. Syllabic abbreviations were also typical of German language used in the German Democratic Republic, for example, Stasi for Staatssicherheit ("state security", the secret police and secret service) or Vopo for Volkspolizist ("people's policeman").

Some syllabic abbreviations from Russian that are familiar to English speakers include samizdat and kolkhoz. The English names for the Soviet "Comintern" (Communist International) and "Milrevcom" (Military Revolution Committee) are further examples.

Orwell's novel 1984 uses fictional syllabic abbreviations like "Ingsoc" (English Socialism) to evoke the use of language under the Nazi and Soviet regimes.

East Asian languages whose writing uses Chinese-originated ideograms instead of an alphabet form abbreviations similarly by using key characters from a term or phrase. For example, in Japanese the term for the United Nations, kokusai rengō (国際連合) is often abbreviated to kokuren (国連). Such abbreviations are called ryakugo (略語) in Japanese. SAs are frequently used for names of universities: for instance, Beida (北大, Běidà) for Peking University (Beijing), Yondae (연대) for the Yonsei University, Seouldae (서울대) for the Seoul National University and Tōdai (東大) for the University of Tokyo.

William Safire from the New York Times has succesfully demonstrated in the last 30+ years that it's a complete folly to surrender languages to the 'natives'.
Chinese included.

Hey,
in the late 1940s the Japanese had to reinvent in a hurry their state religion Shinto (神道) & the social contract.

Re: Food.com 馔

馔 is an acient term used thousands of years ago. You may find it in some very old poems. It is not used today, and i think the majority of Chinese will not know that the character 馔 actually refers to food.
Meaning it is not even good for branding.

If Chinese domains are selling in a forum mainly to non-native Chinese speakers, you should be more clear of the meaning of the word. Advertising as food.com only is misleading.
If you speak Chinese you should write the full meaning.
If you don't then you should ask for an appraisal first from a native Chinese speaker.
