How about something with bijoux? Like, Pretty Bijoux? (bijoux means jewels)
Umm, maybe Noveau Jewelry (New Jewelry)
or Sweet Rose (Sweet Pink)

 LOL , I always thought Bijoux meant "movie theater" 


 Are you sure you want a french name ? A lot of patriotic Americans will not buy anything percieved to be  French these days , just a thought .

 What about " mon amour "    ( My Love in english )

yah i know, i want an english name cause i know it's best lol but since i live in Quebec, they want only french named companies...
Now let me clear things up a little..Maybe this will help you a little.
I will be selling Earrings, Necklaces, Bracelets, Decoupaged Light switches, Beaded bookmarks, Record bowls and Maybe key chains. So, i was looking through my English/French dictionnary and did'nt feel at all inspired. What i came up with was "Bouk Bizar" but that would'nt sound to good in english and "Beads n' Things" but i don't know if that's nice in french and besides, it's to long. I'm looking for a simple and short name that people will remember and easily associate with my stuff. So yah i thought this could help you out a little...Thanks enh ! Grin

 Wow , kind of a catch 22 , local Canadians want a French name , Americans want an English name , sounds like you need one name for each side of the border ! Although the Sweet Rose covers both angles ...........

How about "poulet fris"? okay, how about a well-known french expression (well known to english speakers) such as "naive" "la reine" "la vie en rose" etc... so you can make sure non-francophones can understand it...

I've always liked the french phrase "joie de vivre" (sp?) and it's common enough for english speakers not to boycott  Cheesy

I don't think many people care whether the name is french or not, unless you get some sort of freak.

Ya know, lutheranchick, I'm not sure how many people are going to want to buy from a company if they knew it was called "chicken fries."

Yeah really. I'm almost offended that some Americans wouldn't buy something from a company with a french name!

I think a french name would be a good idea, since you live in Quebec! Plus, from another Canadian viewpoint, I think the name wouldn't even have to translate well into english. I understand a lot of french just from highschool still! I agree with lutheranchick, maybe pick something in french that is common in english as well!

I like the word bijoux, in french and english! I would work with that, to find another word that fits.

How about "Je ne sais quoi"?

Pardon my French (literally)...it's been ten years since my single semester of French in college, and I may not have it down right.

It's supposed to mean "I don't know what". Something that defies description, or leaves you speechless. Just a thought.

I was trying to say "fried chicken." Guess my memories of that KFC in Quebec aren't as clear as I thought.
