What's in a name... - Page 2

post #16 of 38
Randa, I'd probably like it better if the other bakery's in the area didn't have similar names. NAME's Cake Shop....or NAME's Bakery! So unfortunately, I need something that is going to make me stand out from them.

I agree.....hopefully we both can come up with something that will set us apart from our competitors..... icon_razz.gif

My husband & I sat around one day just thinking of names. We opted not to coordinate with my name (Erin) or typical "cake/sweets" words. We played the song "Beautiful Day" at the end of our wedding & that song's always been special. So we chose "Beautiful Day Cakes" & my husband made a cute logo. It's not your typical name & the first time we said it I thought it was silly. But it's cute...something that people would remember. If you don't love what you've come up with, just keep thinking. It'll come. icon_rolleyes.gif

I named my businesses after my daughter. The first and main business is named "Bella's, a dessert catering company" and the smaller one (food allergy desserts) is named Bee's Delights. My daughter's name is Isabella and she is allergic to dairy and eggs, so I devised a menu for other kids with similar allergies. I thought the name sounded more child like, and Bella's was more sophisticated for the upscale menu. TMI!! tapedshut.gif

That's funny Gina! I guess we've all been called something ...I was always called "Prissy Missey".....although I have to admit it's very fitting!!

Hey be thankful you didn't have to grow up with Carol Barrell!! LOL Here is MY dilema. I'm going to get my state tax number so have to name my business, much as you are talking about I presume. But I have two business I will operate under the same number and name. One being my cakes and the other being my woodoworking business. I don't want anything that screams cakes or wood. I have a couple good ideas but haven't decided yet. My daughter told her hubby that I am looking for name ideas for my business and right away he says "The Stinky Penguin". Leave it to him! I don't want something too cutsey that I'll outgrow or get tired of either and nothing with my name in it. UGH! I haven't even seen the list of names already taken. My shop is in a converted 175 year old red barn. I'm still thinkin on this, it ain't easy. Ü

Hey CarolAnn!
How about "The Red Barn Bakery"? I'm with you about using my name in my business name....yuck! "The Blue Birch Bakery" came to me as I was walking my husky one day last summer. I live in a very rural area with no zoning and there's a neighbor of mine that builds cabinetry out of his home. As we were strolling by his shop, I started thinking about my own kitchen cabinets and the name just hit me. Definitely a Eureaka!!! moment. I ran it past my boyfriend and my daughter and they were like, That's IT! I'm glad everyone here on CC likes it, too. icon_lol.gif

Thanks.......I am not sure about colors yet.....my DH thinks the background should be pink...I was thinking black and white....I don't know......still looking at it! What do you think?

Randa, that logo with a pink background would be very pretty! You could do so much with it! Pink business cards, thank you letters on pink paper, pink stickers for the boxes, the list goes on and on!
