what's in a name?


A few comments on my last post prompted me to really think about the name cozy/cuff.  After all, for $300, I better be damn sure.

Here are the reasons I like cozy/cuff:

-I've always been a big sucker for alliteration, I think it makes something fun and memorable.

-I'm a big fan of the backslash.  I think it communicates that the object can actually be two objects - a cozy or a cuff.  (Yes, I technically realize that its not really a cuff, in the traditional open cuff format, but like I said, I like alliteration.)

-The no caps thing is something I do with my business name, so I'd like to continue it with the cozy/cuff (as well the font I typically use - century gothic) to have some continuity.  

So what does everyone think - go with cozy/cuff, tweak it a little bit, or come up with something new altogether?

Megan. Definitely do what you think is best for you. I just suggested CozyCuff because I loved the way it looked spelled like that. So the aesthetics were personal for me, not personal for you the creator. I am having the worst time right now deciding on a new store name. People give me suggestions all the time that they love, and I just don't for some reason. Stay with what you are happy with. I love the concept and the aesthtic beauty of the cuff. The name would not deter me from making a purchace.

honestly, I like cozy/cuff, and for all the reasons you described. It fits with your business and aesthetic, and although it describes the item being able to be two different things, it can also be played as a "cozy cuff", being that they're made out of felt and all.

I just started following your posts, and I have to say that I like cozy/cuff, as Catherine said, for the exact reasons you mention in your post.

I am a huge fan of alliteration as well.
