I probably wouldn't shop in a store called Divaz. In my town there are two businesses called Divaz, one is a hair salon for African-Americans and another is a clothing store. I went to the clothing store and it had really really tacky clothing

I also grew up in the hood (projects) and I am thankful for the valuable lessons I learned I just didn't let the hood raise me if that makes sense. I hear that a lot from ppl who have never even lived in the hood so I always say you can take the girl out of the hood but you can never take the hood out of the girl kwim? I am sorry your so is not being supportive and to answer your question yes I would check it out and if it had things I liked I would shop there,I think its a cute name

You can open a restaurant and name it "The Outhouse" but if your product is good people will come. However, getting them in the door might be the challenge with a name like that. The name should be one that speak to your target market. Depending on the age bracket and product, Divaz might be appropriate. However, if the product is for someone over 40, Divaz might make you think your product is for someone much younger and that person may pass you up altogether. Your SO is right and wrong. Globally your name might omit folks who feel it speaks out to a younger generation. However, if your product is good, it will sell no matter what you call it. I would take a look at the target market and see if the name could in any way exclude persons you want to include.  MARKETING 101

I hate the word diva. I just do.

There's a jewelry shop in town called Miss Got Rocks. I hate that name too, lol.

To elaborate, no I wouldn't because I would assume it would be a low class establishment or something that would cater to teen girls. If it makes a difference I am a 25 year old white upper middle class woman.

 It depends on what you are selling and who you are selling to.
