Recently, one of my sweet sweet cousins contacted me to discuss Etsy shop names for her up and coming jewelry establishment. She is a talented actress in her local school and community theatre and has a nack for creating woven bracelets and colorful earrings! She and I have been emailing back and forth, bouncing different combinations of words and names off each other. So much fun! I told her that it took me a long time to come up with my shop name "ReMarydOriginals". But, I wanted something that really resounded and made sense in reflecting what it was that I wanted to make and the statement that I wanted to make in the crafting world. However, I didn't want to have a name that would "cage me in". After a few days of our emailing and discussions, I think we are getting closer...but she hasn't made a solid decision on what she is going to use yet.
I refered her to an article that was on Etsy's forums about coming up with a name that is understandable, easy to spell, and easy to remember for possible returning customers. I thought it was wonderfully stated and easy to understand. I wish her all the luck in the world and hope that our brainstorming will help!
