I need your help!
As you may know I'm opening my new (real!) shop on the 15th of May! I'm also going to set up an international webshop filled with all the handmade goodies I sell in the real shop in Rotterdam.
I decided to call the shop 'LM kwadraat'. My initials are LM and my mothers are too; she is going to rent the space above my shop and use it as a workplace. I'm also going to sell her jewelry in my shop. 'kwadraat' means 'squared' as in LM x LM = LM^2. You can also see it as me; LM; selling my work and work by other designers, but also giving workshops; LM x LM. Well, a little hard to explain, but I hope you understand. ;) It's a name we came up with a long time ago, sort of as a joke.
Now, the question is; is it a good name? I like it in Dutch, but how do not-Dutch people look at the name? If I'm going to start an international webshop it has to have an international name, or not? A name that everyone is going to remember? Not "err.. it was something like LM k..??"
Of course I would like the shop to have the same name as the webshop!
What should I do? Should I keep the name 'LM kwadraat' or should I choose another one? ( Turn it into 'LM squared' would give problems, there is another company called that way! )
And if I need to choose a new one; how?!
I'd love to hear what you think; I need your opinion (Dutch and non-Dutch!)! Thank you!!
