What is in a Name?

What is in a name. so much I have learned is in a name.  Your name, the kid’s name, the dog’s name, the cat’s name, the goat’s name and last but not least, Your business name.  How do you sum up all that you do, sound interesting and still not have a super long business name like “Wacky Wonderful Happy Creations of Art, Jewelry, Cards and Witty Replies from the Long Forgotten Hobby Farm”  I have so many ideas that I don’t want to hinder myself with a business name and I don’t want to use my personal name because no one knows how to spell it correctly so they wouldn't be able to find me and then I would be lost, lost out there in the world wide web with other people who sound like me being found.  They didn't even know they were lost, these people with a name so close to mine.
So I have been working on names, saying them out loud as I drive to work, introducing myself to imaginary people to see if it rolls of the tongue.  I figure if I can not say it right then no one else with even try.  I have been through a few ideas.  I have been unwilling to share them with my family in case they don’t like them and I have to think of something new.  I figured once I really loved a name I would be proud to share it.

Then I found it, the wonderful business name that sums up what I want to be, where I want to go and who I will become.  Once I decided on a name, I started researching it on the web, searching Google  searching Etsy, searching face book and searching gmail.  Trying to keep in mind all the information I had read about having a good name and where to check to see if someone else had also shared my “ah ha“ moment and picked the name already.  I thought I had found the perfect business name.  I told my mom and she loved it, I told my husband and he said it fits me perfectly.
