I'm thinking of opening a shop that specializes in little girl's dresses (from ages 3-6 or maybe even 2-7 eventually). So I was thinking of naming it something that either has to do with a cafe/coffee or maybe a tea party. I was thinking maybe Ann's Petit Cafe(annspetitcafe)  or possibly Ann's Tea party(annsteaparty). (Ann is a shortened version of my full name) I thought the tea party one was cute, but is it too simple? Both are open domain names and I stole the twitter names and tumblr accounts so far.
I'm leaning toward Ann's Tea Party because I thought it was a cute simple name that would go along with my products - little girl's dresses.
Opinions please?!

I love it. Easy to say and remember, it hits the target well, has meaning for you via your name, and it doesn't pigeon-hole you.

O thank god, i'm not the only one having trouble finding a name for my business.

I plan to specialize in making lingerie on order (to perfectly fit my clients body)
And i want to combine this with making high class belly dance outfits.

My imagination is not working, all domains like bellydanceclothing (also the dutch version of this) are taken.
The competition names are bellybella and scarrabella.
I would like to refer to a mythical creature that has to do with seduction.
Guess i'll have to read up on that. Can anyone think of an other approach to get a name?

Getting out the ole thesaurus (that's usually my first recommendation), I think the word "allure" is easy to work with. D'allure, Bellallure (has too many online, but maybe BDAllure), etc. Just don't overthink it and write down as many names as pop out of your brain and work with the finalists until you get the "it" name. The problem with mystical creatures is that seduction usually means imminent death, and also their names are too hard for regular folks to pronounce.

Like many before, I'm trying to name a shop for myself. I've always been terrible with naming things.  Tongue
I've had several suggest using my username (since I use it here and a few other places) but people are always misspelling it as FreakyGeeky so that's not going to work.
I make various crafts: amigurumi, cloth dolls, hair accessories using various media (felt, crochet, fabric), and am delving into others.
