Need Help with a Cute Business Name

Hello, I am seeking some advice for a cute business name. I make girls hair bows, clips, tutus, etc. As I'm typing this I'm also pulling up an online thesaurus....words I'd maybe like to play on: sparkle, whimsy, embellish, etc.

Any help would be appreciated! Right now, I'm stuck on "Jenny Liz Designs" mainly because it's a play on my name (J. Elizabeth, Jenny Liz is a nickname from my grandmother from years ago). Also, I don't want to go with anything like "Bowtique"...first, that play on words is everywhere, and I also don't want to limit myself to just bows in the future.

I guess I should ask first for opinions on Jenny Liz Designs. :) I just don't think it's "cutesy" enough.

What can I do next?

Just an FYI. If you plan on expanding your business to the internet you'll want to make sure you have as many 'keywords' in the title as possible. When people are searching on the internet for a specific item. They will use a keywords such as in your case "hair, girls, bows, clips etc" they will not be searching for "Jenny Liz Designs" unless by you. A great free service to find great keywords and see how many people are searching for xyz, try Google keywords. Good luck! R..

What about Tutu Embellishments or Tutu Embellished by Jenny Liz, or Tutu Whimsical? Jenny Liz has sentimental value and it would be nice to incorporate it somehow, but I agree with the others reagrding the need to identify what you offer.

i REALLY like Jenny Liz Designs, but to clarify what you design, on your card or logo you could add in smaller font under the name itself "bows - tutus- fun" replacing dashes with dots or "For all things that sparkle". Or whatever is appropriate and then as your business expands you can replace or edit that line.
I agree tha key words and a blog with ad word could really help expand your business:)
Wishing you such fun and success as your business grows!!

You need a way to make sure people know what you do - especially if you will be sellling online. Find a way to use the name you want, but say what you do without it being too long. Good luck with your new business.

I think Jenny Liz is great. In the candy-pop fashion industry, there seems to be two paths of labels: the designer name and a cutesy hook. I think Jenny Liz ties the two together. Lord knows you have enough competition out there with this kind of product.

I like Jenny Liz. It has meaning to you and it's very cute. I agree with a previous post to make a "tag line" under your company name. And you can customize it for a specific occasion. It also allows you flexibility.
