Well I'm pretty bad at picking names.. lol but i'd probably say go for something simple and easy to remember.. and something that really suits you as the owner..

When i did nails i named my business "Glitter" (although i now have Sweet Dreams Lingerie i still have Glitter inc. as my legal name..)
People often say that i'm super girly and bubbly.. so as soon as they heard the name they were like "omg, that's so you" and they didn't easily forget

mabey tell us a little more about yourself and your business so we can help you out a bit more

Congrats on starting a business btw!!

Thanks for the response!!

I will give you a little info about myself and my buisness...

I will be doing makeup and hairstyling for brides, runway, and other special occasions. I am able to airbrush if it is desired. I am a super happy person, I guess you could call me bubbly also! I love to meet new people. My goal is to make people look and feel their best wheather it is for a wedding, or a photo shoot, or some other event.

I started a hair braiding business with my friend ad we called it Braids'n'More.
I agree with Lil'dee that it should have something to do with what the service you are going to be providing.

Also, remember that you may want to do a website in the future. You want to make sure you pick a good name so as to optimize your chances of being recognized online. it can be difficult, as so many xxxxxx.com names are already taken. As soon as you have thought of a decent name, visit "godaddy.com" to see if the .com name is available. This will save you a lot of time and anguish. Good luck with everything!

Do you plan on having anything copyrighted or trademarked? Many people come up with business names and fail to realize the rules of copyrights and trademarks (like picking a common name cannot be trademarked until it is considered "distinguishable to your business")

So comming up with a unique name that is catchy and sticks is not only a good thing marketing wise, its a good thing in legal perspectives too.

Good Luck!

Thanks girls! I really like vavavoom. I do plan to get it trademarked at some point so I will keep that in mind.

Does anyone else have any ideas??
