I did a lot of research on the net about how one should go about choosing a good business name. Things like 'don't use your name in the title,' 'be descriptive,' and 'be catchy and original' were similar themes in all the advice I read. In the end, it came down to what felt like "me." It started out with me remembering my grandfather calling me Queen Jeanne as a baby and toddler (a very vague memory, but a lovely one). I thought it was really neat and I wanted to somehow incorporate that since it had a lot of meaning to me.... Queen Jeanne's Jewelry Box.... Queen Jeanne's Treasures.... nope, they just didn't seem right no matter how much I wanted them to fit. So I deliberated, I wrote down all kinds of descriptions and adjectives and I basically played an adlib game trying to match up cool words from one column to another to create just the right name, but nothing made itself known or really spoke to me. I played with the notion of spelling my name backwards, which I really liked, but I had to be realistic and realize that no one would know how to pronounce Ennaej (ay-naj). So much for that experiment... I gave up on trying to figure out a name for a couple months. I figured if I stopped obsessing over it, something would make itself known, and it did.
