Any bakery name pet peeves?
A couple that I heard that I really liked were
Crumble and flake
A wish and a whisk
My pet peeve is anything "cakes by..." just because it's so overdone. Or spelling something wrong to have alliteration, like spelling cakes "kakes". No offense to anyone who has these names, just personally not a fan!
-Last name or town name in there
-Short and to the point
-Misspellings "Kakes" etc.
-Names that are over done "Cakes by So-and -So"
-Trying to be edgy but bordering on offensive
Out of the ones you listed, I like "Baked" and "Babushka Bakery" the best.
It's sort of like choosing a name for your child, isn't it? I've never met a doctor, for example, (and I know many, many doctors) named Bambi or Trixie. Something simple and classic will always serve a better purpose than trying to be cutsie or unique.
I came up with The Sugar Lab because I wanted to combine my love of science (and my biology degree) with my love of baking. It came up in a brainstorm with my mom (also my business partner) and her hair dresser. It also incorporates our philosophy: we have no problem experimenting with new designs or new flavors.

But more seriously, I just wanted to bring 1 thing up. Asking for directions that could help you find a good name is, well, good ! But don't post final names you're debating until you secure them. So many people can read the forums and run with a name you are debating to register it themselves.
