Poll question: I really need help with my soy candle business name....
I know I have done this before but I am still having a hard time coming up with a name. I want it to be catchy, easy to remember, and easy to spell. Here is another list:


Thanks.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

2. I do like the use of green.
And my BF thinks I should carve out a niche, to like science nerd/scifi people, but the overlap of those people and those that by candles would be rather tiny I would think.

4. I really suck at this- I've got the chemistry and production down but
this part is stopping me cold.

7. why don't you try something more simple
and then use the catchy stuff for the different types of candles

:shrug:

something along the line of

Candles by Amy
featuring a complete line of soy candles
and other
fine natural products
kind to the environment

19. I like this idea
It would allow you to branch out into related areas after you reach the big time with the soy candles.

30. Yeah, I would second "Candles By Amy."
Sometimes less is more. This is one of those times.

10. I like the translation idea too.
You could translate "candle" or "soy"...

9. I have a feeling...
I'm going to be up all night trying to think of a perfect name for you because that's how I roll. Creative challenges--gotta love them. Good luck!
Of the names on your poll, I'd have to go with Earth Stone Candles. It's simple and sounds "natural"---a good combination.

11. Thanks. I like the translation idea too,
it is where I got the idea for Lucerna- lamp/candle in latin- you help me out I send you free candles. I am truly at an impasse. My BF is stuck on the science thing and I like the idea, but for a company name I don't want it to be too narrow. I mean truly the market for candles is 70% woman 25-60? I am guessing here.

13. I voted for the last option only because I love scentsations. Very clever.
Edited on Fri Dec-09-11 05:05 PM by snagglepuss
Not crazy about shameless. I also like Cedar Creek. My 2 cents would be just Scentsations but use Ceder Creek and some of the others to describe particular scents, even Shameless would be good to describe a particular scent such as pachouli (? love the scent but don't know the spelling) Gook Luck.

15. That is my fav...
but almost all the feedback I get is negative. Either it's a negative connotation or too sexual. I think of it has Shameless as in no guilt in burning them cause they are soy not petroleum ya know? Cedar Creek Scentsations ?

20. Shameless is a negative word as it means without shame, i.e not caring
what other people think. People who drive gas guzzling SUVs are shameless. The word you're looking for is guiltless. You could on the other hand divide your candles under differnt groupings, for instance have 3 or 4 scents that you market as Scentsations for wild, passionate and romantic trysts/nights, and Shameless would be a perfect name for a candle associated with illicit erotic delights. Another group could be marketed as yoga/mediation candles enhancing inner calm and balance.

23. Soylent gleam
Edited on Sat Dec-10-11 12:20 AM by eppur_se_muova
(Actually, the "lent" implies lentils -- I'd go with MFM's "soybeams".)
