Google site lookup results question and website branding guidance needed

When looking up this site on google with site:www.thekathycollection.com (example)

It looks like google is confused on the listing and only lists the main URL of the site and no other pages seem to be indexed. It also lists other webites that have the phrase The Kathy Collection on them.

Does this mean that i have to re brand the site so it is something specifically unique like www.thekathysmithcollection.com?

Or can i just purchase that domain and add it as a secondary domain to the site - Will google then use this new domain to index it separately and potentially clear up the confusion in google search results to only include pages that are from that domain when performing site:www.thekathysmithcollection.com on google?

Any other guidance is greatly appreciated!!!

Thanks in advanced!

https://www.thekathycollection.com is currently offline + this site appears to have never been online, so will never have any content indexed anywhere - Google, Archive, no other site.

https://thekathysmithcollection.com is the same.

So no record of either site ever having any content online.

You must have content active + online long enough to be indexed... or... well... it won't be indexed...

Is there a site-map submitted to Google Search console for this domain?

If you're looking for prior content on a particular domain, you might want to check it out on http://archive.org. If that site and its pages have ever been indexed by the Internet Archive Wayback Machine it'll be there. Otherwise, it's an unparked (unhosted) domain.

only lists the main URL of the site and no other pages seem to be indexed. It also lists other webites that have the phrase [KEYWORDS IN DOMAIN] on them.
.

It is hard to determine the issue without knowing the actual domain and Lucas has given you the first place to look.  Buying another domain with the same content or as an alias will not help and probably hurt. There is an issue with how your site is being indexed and that is what needs to be addressed.  

Check your robots.txt, sitemap and if your webserver is blocking or redirecting any urls. (htaccess or web.config)
