bakery names

post #1 of 27

What do you like in a bakery name? Do you like something cutesy? Something that sounds fancy? Or something quirky?
Any bakery name pet peeves?
A couple that I heard that I really liked were

Crumble and flake
A wish and a whisk
Baked
Babushka bakery

I think your name should reflect the style of cake you want to do, and the kind of customer you want to attract. For me, I hope to appeal to the more elegant bride and celebration customer, so I want to have a name that they will be drawn to.

I also think it has to be easy to remember and easy to spell. Pet peeve when it comes to names of any kind is 'unique spelling'.

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!

Like-

 

-Last name or town name in there

-Short and to the point

 

 

 

Dislike-

 

-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 homeschool because I've seen the village and I don't want it raising my children.

I don't like the town in the name. Makes me feel like they didn't try very hard.

Agreed on no creative spellings, and not a fan of the city or town name inclusions.

I really like simplicity in a name. 'Flour' 'Baked' 'Butter Lane'... I lIke those. They are, of course, already famous names.

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.

When you are picking a name, do you want it to be completely unique? Or just unique to your state?

I was hoping for a completely unique name, but I just googled it and found out someone has it. Which I shouldvee done before I gor my hopes up. It was on the second page too so I really was thinking there wasn't one.

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.

that's why I just wanted to start a thread talking about bakery names in general.
