The one thing I can tell you is this - stop worrying about what other people tell you.  For years I wanted to pursue a certain career path, and kept listening to other people's advice about the other things I should do instead - more 'sensible' or 'more realistic for making a living.'  I finally stopped listening to other people and started doing what I wanted to.  Now I am completely happy and actually making as much money as I was before.

As for the name of your business.  If it feels right to you, go for it.  If you decide to go with something else, you can always re-brand yourself.  Companies (big an small) do it all the time.  Follow your gut and best of luck to you!

okay so, long ago i set out to create a website. i came up with a name (lemon juice) color, design, etc. i was in the midst of finding a web domain when ...school started, thus leaving me no time to do anything for quite a while, and i honestly forgot about it. but now that i'm taking a trip to europe this summer, and am in need of spending money there, i've remembered again and i'm determined to start back up again.

problem is i'm no longer at all satisfied with the name lemonjuice. boring, and not at all to do with my products. i have a vintagey feel to a lot of my stuff. i make bags, purses, some clothing, scarves, and a lot of stenciled t-shirts, among other things.  i don't have anything to sell yet, so no pictures at the moment, because i have to be determined to set up the site first, so i don't waste money on materials.

 i don't want the word vintage in the title, but yet i want the name to sound "vintage-y." make sense?
so here's the only ideas i have so far:
autumn rocket
hello, (can't think what to say hello to!)
but arrhythmia has given me inspiration so::
hello, adelaide
hello, marlene
hello, mildred
hello, rosemary
hello, ramona
hello, leona
replace hello, with dear.

i'm especially fond of the name adelaide, but helloadelaide.com is taken, though not in use...darn people. and i'm wondering who in the world would have thought of that name for no reason...and they've done nothing with it. very lame.

oh yeah,and i've been looking at using godaddy.com. if you've used it, do you like it? is there a better one that's not outrageously expensive?

How about a name for a vintage person, like hello collette or hello marlene or hello ethel, ....trying to think of 50's movie star names. Or, you could pull something from an old movie from that era or a tv show. Something like Once upon a holiday or shanghai expressed.

I like autumn rocket. I still have a free webhost, but I used www.namecheap.com for my domain registrar. $8.88.

Good luck on the process of getting going!!

thanks so much for your help! yeah, i really like the name idea. i was looking for some 40s slang words, but there aren't any that pop out at me, and i really like your idea. so thanks for the ideas.

so, i don't know if your friend would like for you to steal his name...but joosebocks would be so cool! haha
out of the ones you said though...at tenagra is cool if your target buyers understand the fun and non-"snootiness" behind it.

i like "hello collette"...i am also a fan of the word moxie, which (if you don't already know) is an older slang word for...um, pluck, i guess.  inititative.  spirit.  courage.

"moxie rocket", maybe?

edited because i'm an idiot...i also meant to say that i've used godaddy.com for more domain registries than i'd like to think about, and i've never, ever had a problem with them.  would recommend highly, esp. for the price.

I like hello, mildred...oh and I love the word moxie.  Have you seen the Target chocolate commercial for "choxie", chocolate with moxie...love that!  Maybe you could spell it "moxy"??

thanks guys. i'm just terrible at making up my mind. i like the "hello..."s. but i also really like autumn rocket...as i was drafting "logos"  i used a shirt i had with a rocket on it as inspiration.

its supposed to look sloppy, though i may make it a bit less sloppy looking.

I like the names thing, too.  Adalaide is a great one.  I also really like the sounds of Hello, Betty and Hello, Maude.

What about Glad Rags.

Slang from the 40s:

The slang for youth of the forties was inspired by the Jive of the thirties.  These next slangs describe body-parts.

an ugly face--puss, phiz, map

the face--knob, index

the body--the frame


whiskers--face lace, moss

head--biscuit, dome, idea pot, noggin, think box

eyes--blinkers, lamps, spotters, pies



ears--flippers, sails, flops, mikes, lugs (large ears)

feet--plates, hocks

nose--sneezer, handle (large nose), schnozz, horn

legs--uprights, drumsticks, stumps, pillars, stems, slits

knees--prayer dukes



mouth--bone box

teeth--chewers, choppers, crumb crunchers

stomach--bread basket, pale



heart--pump, clocker, ticker

shoulders--brace o broads

arms--floppers, brace o hookers

fingers--wigglers, feelers, stealers, fish hooks, pickers, forks

hands--grabbers, paws, meat hooks, paddlers


What happens, however, when your tastes change and the 40s is no longer working for you? I'd go the rocket way.
