So I've been contemplating registering a company name (get my butt one step closer to making cakes for profit). My husband is refusing to pick a favourite and I don't know which name I like better.... Please let me know your opinion.

The Robson Cake Company (Mt. Robson in the Canadian Rockies is one of my favourite places in the world)

Sugar Daisy Cakes

Actually, I didn't like any of them . Not a one flowed off the tongue... they are all uncomfortable to say.

If I were forced to choose, however, I would probably choose Sugar Daisy.

I like the Robson cake co, but clients will be coming in looking for Mr or Mrs Robson!

I love Sugar Daisy Cakes!!!! You can come up with a great logo with that name.

Man, it isn't easy trying to come up with names...kudos to all you have unique names!

I've spent a lot of time looking at other companies logos and names and a good third of them I didn't like either.

Sometime I wish my last name was Robson! ha ha ha, it would work a lot better than Parks Cake Company....now that just sounds awkward!

I submitted my vote for Sugar Daisy Cakes, but I feel "Daisy Cakes" rolls of the tongue better. icon_smile.gif

What about combining? Daisy Cake Company, perhaps?

It seems that some customers shorten names anyway once they become familiar with you. So you may hear someone say, " Hon, please stop by Daisy Cakes on your way home?" I don't think they'd say "please stop by Sugar Daisies".

Good luck!

Well...uhm...gee, thanks! icon_redface.gificon_lol.gif

Actually, it was an easy jump from what I call my daughter...Katey-cakes! (That's my daredevil right there as my avatar! lol!)

Look forward to seeing your logo when you get one!

Well, as long as they are in another state or even county (I think) you can use the name. That and it's not an exact match. I really do like the Daisy Cakes!

I like Daisey Cake Company too.... even though DaiseyCakes is already taken it only matters that you have a slight difference in the name.

I have a name registered and it is VERY VERY close to other cake names - Piece of Cake Designs, Piece of Cake is taken and so is Piece o' Cake etc.... Add the "designs" and its a new company.

So if theirs is DaiseyCakes (all one word) then you are safe as Daisey Cakes Company - 3 seperate words.

It does get really touchy so I had an attorney research mine for me to make sure that I wasn't using someone else's name.

BUT- if they are getting in trouble for something - you might not want to be that close in name and get a bad rap for something they did......

Good luck - took me forever to come up with mine and now I want to change it!! At least I haven't actually opened the business yet!!

let us know what you choose.

Names are only good in your state unless you file a national copyright or trademark for it, right?

hee hee, I saw that post!

Ya...I'm in Alberta, Canada so it's pretty much safe to say that Daisy Cakes is not taken....but this is also why i'd like to register for a name...so my potential name doesn't get taken, because if that happened, it would suck big time!

May be it's not taken in Canada, but I sure think about it twice when my name is related to or sounds like one stealing recipes.

I like Daisy Cakes too, where are you in Alberta?

Maybe you can change the spelling of Daisey to Daisee or Dazey or Daizee in order to make it your own.

How about 'Walk in the Parks Cake Company' ? its got a nice play on your name.. leads the consumer to feel like coming to you for a cake wont be a nail biting and hair pulling experience.. and it gives you tons of room to play on your logo.. just a thought
