Creative Name Suggestions For Women's Boutique
11/9/2010 at 12:03 PM ET
A friend and I are starting an online upper scale women's boutique that will carry items such as high-end baby/children's clothing, some women's clothes, handmade jewelery, hand-blown glass vases, etc.
At some point, we may add other items but even though these items will be higher-end, quality items, we will not charge retail.
My partner is Italian, sometimes there are words in Italian that can be used in a company name, just a thought.
Quality, unique, beautiful, timeless items will be our main goal, some that can be treasured for a lifetime.
Thank you so much in advance for any suggestions!

If you position your boutique as for women, you're likely to lose the children's business. If you position your shop as for children, you're almost certain to lose the ladies' business.
My suggestion: Decide which you want to be before you settle on a name.

We may do two stores based on your comment.
That being said, can you think of a name that would be a semi-universal name for a boutique that would portray the unique, quality items?
Thank you for your reply!

I sounds like most of your customers will understand the above 'tag line'. Just keep the fonts simple, but it combines both highend fashion with an Italian bent

Boutique Italiana (I hope that makes sense in translation).
Phil is right though -- focus on one audience at a time. You'll be glad you did from inventory to marketing.

Mother and Child Reunion
OK, guess I'm an old fart. Probably doesn't resonate for anyone under 50. Still, its a great song. How do you say mother & child in italian?

Thank you for the replies!
We have decided to go with a name that would focus on just the higher-end baby clothes without the Italian mixed with it.
We are still thinking of names and if anyone has any other suggestions, they would be greatly appreciated.
