Once upon a time I had a job where everybody spoke Spanish except for me.  They were teaching me the language and the name sort of happened...I've had that email name since then so when I decided on a biz name it was an easy choice--plus for some reason many of my non-Spanish speaking peeps call me Miss K so it all kinda translates into the same thing--muchacha K

How do you guys come up with your brand names? I'm hoping to start my own shop and I can't think of a brand name.

I used my name that way when I become HUGE like Calvin Klein or Ralph Lauren or Kate Spade I already have a brand name that will last for years and years!

I'm into positive thinking and thinking big can you tell?  Wink

It took me a while to come up with something that I liked. I didn't want to use my name since it's very hard to spell (I have an unusual first & last name).

I came up with "Creative Cajun" since I love to be creative and that can apply to many things, not just one craft. I am also from South Louisiana (I was born there, I've since moved) and I am proud to be of cajun descent.

What may help is to try some brainstorming. I started with a word in the center and then branched off into words that described me and who I was. Then you can decide to take one of those words and break it down into more detail. That's how I ended up with my name. I hope it's not too cheesy.

I can relate to your struggle - it took me many iterations to come up with mine. I wish you the best of luck in choosing your name!

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like more details...

i came up with clever phrases, a long long list, then looked for which URLs were available and whether those phrases existed anywhere else on the internet, and *then* ran it by my friends.  you could, like i did, try to find an uncommon but euphonious phrase.  it will stick in people's heads and be uniquely you.

I wanted something short and cute, but not cutesy.  I also wanted it to be somewhat "personal" even if only I understand it.  My brand name is Carta Etc.  Carta is paper in Italian, and I love Italy and Italian culture (I visit the country, been studying the culture and history for years).  I also make mainly paper products on my website, but wanted to leave it open because I love to make all different kinds of things, hence the etc part.

I am currently using my name for the sole proprietorship, however my domain name (and hopefully, eventually corporation's name) is JDx2.   

It was a lot of thought, and I went through name after name, kept feeling for the right one.  Which is why I went with using my name.  It wasn't until after I had done that, did I came up with it.  See, when I married my Hubby, I became a JD.   He was already JD so together we are JD times (x)2. 

Now I am trying to figure out if I should get that trademarked so I can put it on my work and it will always be known as mine.  But I need to research that more before I do that.

I now use three. The latest is a stupid word joke actually and I use it for things that aren't sewn, but hand made. In swedish craft is called Handarbete, wich litterally means hand work, so the label became...
Swedish handjobs. Of course Smiley
The first one is All Fucked Up for sewn stuff and Tiny Monster for kids stuff.
