Help me out ladies!! I just thought of a name for my business, but I need some feedback. Here it is...option #1: The Sugar Belle, option #2: Sugar Belle ?????? I'm in the deep south, hence the "belle" - like "Southern Belle"....sugar, well - do I really have to explain that one? lol As far as a tagline or slogan goes, I'm at a loss. What do ya'll think about the name...good? bad? really bad?? lol icon_confused.gif Any ideas for a slogan?
TIA- icon_smile.gif

I like the name, but being in the deep south ya have to say iot with the drawl...... The Shugga Belle. Your slogan? "Ain't no belle worth her shugga without a Shugga Belle cake."

JennT,
I LOVE THAT NAME (Sugar Belle)! I am from Alabama originally and actually thought about that name in my naming process, but went with another one.

One thing to remember.....make sure the domain name is available so you can get a website.

LOVE IT!!!!

My dh's parents and brother's family live in Fairhope. icon_wink.gif

When you say sugar like they say it in Mississippi (where I'm from) you spell it sugah...

Cute name!

Great name JennT. I kinda like "Southern Shugga Belle"

But don't mind me, I still haven't come up with a catchy name for me either. There is always hope icon_razz.gif

I love the name and the tagline, but since you actually live in AL, where I'm sure everybody pronounces it "sugah" anyways, it may not be necessary to change the spelling and may just be confusing. Or maybe not. icon_confused.gif

Sugar Belle (regardless of the spelling of sugar) really rings my chimes, honey!

That was me!! lol My dad came up with that one...hence my avatar...and thanks to Lisa, now it IS flying!!! lol icon_lol.gif I do like it, but I think it might be just a little TOO off-beat for some people. I'd considered..."The Flying Cake - When no ORDINARY cake will do!"...But I am really taking to Sugar Belle...the .com address is already taken, but .net is open. But there's no real website...when I type sugarbelle.com in it takes me to a domain name page, godaddy.com, and says it's taken....hmmm? I need to make up my mind and PICK ONE!!!! lol icon_rolleyes.gif

missmersh Posted 25 Aug 2005 , 10:52pm

JennT (I feel stupid asking this, but is your name TIA?)

The domain: www.sugar-belle.com is available.

I am not sure how you are searching. But I used www.buydomains.com
and it is only $16 a year depending on if the name is available.
My absolute FAVORITE name was Sugar Magnolia. But since that was the title to a Grateful Dead song (I am not a big fan) just like magnolia cause it is a southern thang! That domain name was like $3000+!!!!! Ha ha ha

Anyway, I checked for you and sugar-belle.com is available.
I REALLY like that name. I think you should go with it! (but who am I? lol)
Isn't it HARD!!! coming up with a name?!?!?

Whatever you choose, I am sure it will be lovely!

(Were you asking if my name is Tia?? If so, nope...it's Jennifer. If I signed my post TIA i meant Thanks In Advance, if that's what you were wondering.)

I just discovered that too a few minutes ago!! lol Thanks for checking for me, though! I've decided...Sugar Belle it is!! Yay!!! icon_razz.gif Now, if I can just convince DH that it's worth the $$ to do a website! lol I can pretty much do the publishing part myself, so that saves alot. At godaddy.com it's only $8.95/yr for the domain....need to see if that includes email addresses, etc.

There's so many possibilities, it does make it hard to choose! Thanks for the encouragement!! icon_biggrin.gif

Jenn

missmersh Posted 26 Aug 2005 , 12:46am

Jenn,
LOL, well I SURE AM GLAD I didn't address you as TIA!!! LMAO!!! icon_lol.gif

Thanks for clarifying that! ha ha thumbs_up.gif

Wow 8.95 that is great! Way to go on finally deciding! I just know you will be happy with it.

I hope your dh gets convinced!! I am sure he will go for it!!
