Which business name should I use?

I am starting a home business to make various crafty things with the goal of helping to pay some of the costs of my special needs baby. She will probably cost us an unexpected $5000-7000 this year, and every penny helps with that.

That said, I need a name. I'm debating between "Lily's Heart designs" and "Lorelily designs".

Lily is my baby (and she's a heart baby ever since she had open heart surgery at 7 weeks old). But I have another daughter named Lorelei, and I wonder if I should combine the names or not? I like both, but I might like "Lorelily" better. DH definitely prefers "Lily's Heart" but might be sold on the other if I choose.

  • I found it hard to pronounce "Lorelily designs" honestly.

    Maybe something like "From the Heart, For the heart" could be your slogan though! :)

    How about something that incorporates the reasoning for the crafts, but neither name? That way it is fair not only now but in the future if you have more children also.

    You could use your last name, "Designs of Love"; "Crafts of love", Support Heart Health Crafts", Healthy Heart Crafts & Designs"?

    Good luck and be sure to let us know when you are ready to sell items so we can help!

  • I like Lily's Heart design but I can see where you would want to include both children too. Both are nice names.
