Catchy Name For An On-line Children's Boutique?
Posted by Anonymous on

I am a mom of a little girl and have recently begun sewing items for children and babies. My items include shopping cart covers, hooded towels, custom bibs, hairbows, appliqued overalls, ribbon skirts, and more clothing items, as well as decorated koozies for adults. I need a catchy name for this. I mostly sell items at various craft shows in the area and on Ebay. Please help with your ideas - some that I've thought of that are already in use on Ebay are:
Little Bow Peep
Oh Sew Cute

Naming your business is like naming a baby--there are thousands of good ideas out there. As you consider different names, think about what you want the name to communicate. Do you want to reinforce the category--children's clothes? Is it that the items you are selling are handcrafted/tailored? Are there any themes that run across your products? (e.g., colors, motifs, fabric types.) Perhaps a fanciful name that doesn't directly communicate a specific quality or category might have some appeal for your target customers.
You may also want to consider using a name with an available url, just in case you decide to expand further on the web. Here's the link to a great domain name generator and search tool:
Keep in mind that unless the name you select is considered generic or descriptive, you could be infringing on someone else's trademark. If you are in the U.S., you can do a quick search on the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office website here:
You might also want to check out this site for free naming help:
Here are just a few quick ideas that could serve as a springboard for further name generation:
*Playing off the idea of "so" (sewing):
Sew in Love
Buttons, Buckles, & Bows
Rainbows & Ribbons
Pockets & Patches
* More fanciful/distinctive, less expected
Blue Satin Sashes or Do-Re-Mi-Fa-Sew (from "Sound of Music")
Sugar & Spice (from children's poem)
Best of luck

i'm thinking of a name for my online boutique shop. Les Des Boutique is what i'm considering now. Any suggestions? I would be selling vintage accessories and espadrilles shoes.
