  • Suggestions please

    Im researching and reading and looking online alot at the moment

    but need a name and am totally stuck.

    This would be a business name and a domain name
    I dont want it to be my personal name and also dont want it to be for one particular thing so have room to expand into other areas

    Am thinking of starting off with jewellery but will expand it eventually
    but naming things has always been a hard process for me

    As a hobby I write paintshoppro tutorials and can take me hours just to name one tutorial lol

    so if anyone has any suggestions please feel free to tell them me

    Thanks in advance

    It's difficult to suggest names as they are so personal to you. The best thing I can recommend is to keep the name shortish, something that rolls off the tongue and grows on you. Doesn't necessarily have to tell you exactly what the business is, think what you first thought when you saw, that has nothing to do with what they do! I would laso recommend buying .com and, ukreg are the cheapest i've found for registering domain names. Good luck.

        Do you or did you have a nickname at school or are known for your love of something. For example, if you're known for your love of tea, it could something with Earl Grey or you could use that as a prompt for something such as Lady Crafta?

        You could try making an anagram of your name. Or maybe you've heard your kids (or someone elses) come out with the sort of cute made up words that they do. My nephew made me laugh when he called his mum "meanie box mummy" after she had disciplined him for being naughty one day. Maybe not ideal for a business name but you get the idea.

        Do you have an in joke with your partner or friends? The sort of thing no-one else gets? or maybe something that crops up from time to time. My husband and I quite often refer to Marjorie Manners having a lie in that day if one of us is grumpy in the morning. It came from a friends mum who used always ask where Marjorie Manners was if he was being rude and it just stuck with us as a mickey take.

        Mine came about as a result of combining mine and my husband nicknames. Nothing to do with real tigers, although I did get a few visits from people looking for tiger related supplies at the start!.

        If you're really struggling, you could try a business naming tool like this one:

        Hope this helps!

          Thanks StickyTiger

          upto now have come up with these names

          Elegant Designs
          Pure Elegance
          Prescious Metal

          The last one reminds me of rock and heavy metal groups a bit though lol

            It's really your choice - I like Prescious Metal as I'm a bit of a rock chic at heart. I'm not sure if that misspelling is deliberate (Prescious rather than Precious) but it could confuse people. If you went for I would suggest getting the domain names for the correct spelling too and redirect it to you site so you don't lose business.

            The other two are fine but they aren't the sort of titles I would personally remember easily as they're pretty generic. Do you anticipate that your work will always be elegant, as opposed to funky, chunky or otherwise. As you say, you may change direction so it's worth bearing in mind. Also, have you checked out if their domain is available?
