We all know how hard it can be deciding on a name. It could be your child’s or your pets name but your business name, well that’s a tricky one. So I thought I would let you how I decided mine.
It wasn’t straight forward at all, actually it was originally a whole different name for almost a year. That was until one day, just before Christmas, I just knew I needed to change it.
When I first started my business was called All about that glitz, which is okay I suppose, but it lost its spark as I was just gaining mine. I picked that name at the time as I was glittering alcohol (provided by the customer of course) and matching drinking glasses. So hence the glitz part and the rest was because of the song All about that bass as it was still catchy at the time.
I started to feel a little uneasy about the name when friends or family asked what the name of my Facebook page was. It felt unatural to physically say it and was a bit of a tongue twister (I was so used to saying it in my head)
The final straw was I knew my business wasn’t all about just glitz and glammer, it had become quite chic at times. So on came my thinking cap. I wanted to include glitter, as I still work with it quite alot, but needed a softer approach. I managed to come up with the name The glitter boutique but that was taken by an American clothes company. So I played around with words and out popped little and box. Hey presto! The Little Glitter Box.
I then found an amazing logo designer who helped me with my vision. I wanted a clairabella style to it and he suggested having a box somewhere on it. So through lots of trials and errors he designed the perfect one.
It’s safe to say I love the name and logo and will not be changing it. Ever!
I would love to hear the stories on how you came up with your blog names business names.
