Crowd-sourcing some business names

Post by Tribble on Sun Jan 13, 2013 3:47 am

Heya everybody, got a little request for those of you willing to contribute some names.
Due to some unfortunate circumstances involving lying *bleeps* in the VTOS office, and general timing, I had to leave my PLC course in Jewellery making.
As such I've had to fast-track my business plans, and am having major trouble with a name.

My target audience is fellow nerds and geeks, with a focus on custom work for cos-players and/or ren fair actors.
To show it's Irish I'll likely throw 'Celtic' or something in there.
Best I've managed is Celtic Dungeoneering Provisioners; and that's fairly disappointing.

I'd appreciate any help guys; whether you love music, video games, movies, books, tabletops or sports.... there's a little nerd inside all of us.
One I plan to exploit if at all possible Tongue

I am sure you'll get some good responses! Smile Celtic Warrior Wear sprang to me Embarrassed but I'm not very good at this. Took me best part of 3 years to finally sort a name for my photography - Waxwing Photography. Smile

Ooooh, sounds lovely.... and the suggestion definitely has a ring to it.
I came back to edit my post, saying I'll delete it in a few days; I just get the feeling that I'm being a bit demanding Tongue
Although I'll gladly listen to anything suggested while it's here ^_^

Definitely the direction I want to head, but it could have some.... unsavory conflation when using the word 'Dungeon'. Embarrassed
This is why I asked for help, really tricky to get the balance between a name with meaning, and a name that makes sense for my own business...
I did come up with another however 'Celtic Cosplay Crafts'.
But is still suffers like my other names, it's missing something... not massively memorable, nor particularly snappy.

Aaaargh, I'm terrible at marketing Sad
A friend recommended 'Celtic White-smith', but I'm not sure of that....

then maybe something like "Celtic Costume Craft" or "Celtic Costumes" or "Celtic Costumiers" or "Cosplay Celts" or a name that leaves nothing to the imagination for easier recognition of what your company does like "Cosplay Costumes".....

Right, after much consideration, and frustration might I add, I have narrowed it down to a single name.
'Custom Celtic Crafts', unfortunately, while it has a great ring to it, the 'crafts' bit is too vague.
Crafts could be anything, and since I'll be focusing on jewelery and ornamentation, I need to be concise.
I was thinking maybe 'Custom Celtic Silver', and while it has a nice syllable consistency, it loses the alliteration I so love.
I've tried so many synonyms; for dungeons, gems, metals and crafts; but nothing really makes the title.... complete.

Should I just leave it at 'Custom Celtic Silver' and be happy it can't be misconstrued? Confused Confused Confused
ALL input will be highly valued.
