    New business: suggestion for a name?

    Hi,

    My uncle is starting a business. The business will first concentrate on selling greeting cards and organisers, later when it becomes stable the business will expand into other areas. He hasn't come up with a name for his business yet. Please help us think of a name.

    Thnx

    Thnx, but the busines name has to be more general. Because the business will expand into other areas other than selling greetings cards, which he'll do to start up the business.

    how about 'tidda inc.'

    just kidding

    Actually the best thing would be to include your family name in it. So that some day if it grows into a big corporate, they would know who owns it. ... ofcourse, I'm assuming your family name hasn't been used by anybody for naming purposes.

    My uncle doesn't plan to include anybody's name in the name of the business. Any other ideas people?

    It's ok now. My uncle's partner came up with good names.

    "Tender Thought" or

    "Wishing Well"

    which is better?

    Nutshell inc.

    If he decides to move into the adult market, he could use Nutsack, inc.

    oh you are a card !!!

    theres not much of a customer base in Victorian English people though.

    personally, for a card shop i think "card sharp" is brilliant, tho its so obvious i bet somebody's already using it...
