back to the drawing board

hello friends!
in an inconvenient turn of events...it seems that a company exists with the name that we had chosen. we 've been informed that legally, we would be fine to stick with our name...but would that be a good business decision?

we've landed on a resounding "no."

so our new fancy business cards will be recycled and we're headed back to the drawing board! (this time around, we will be sure to do a proper web search before letting our excitement get to us)

after getting over the initial disappointment, we're excited to be brainstorming again.  at least this time, we're starting with some ideas and strong preferences for what we're looking for in a name.

one thing we really loved about our previous business name was that it was distinctly southern without being overt or overbearing. we've been brainstorming southern associations, words, phrases and images and are hitting some roadblocks.

so we'd like to turn to you all for help: when you hear the word "southern" what are some of the things you think about? what comes to mind?  if you're from the south...what are some experiences that you had growing up?

we'd love to hear comments or suggestions from you - anything you have to say will surely be helpful!

in our southern spirit: thanks, y'all!

Hi girls! Remember that EVERY company faces similar set-backs. Stay positive!!

Some suggestions: Affable, Cordial, A larking (means to engage in harmless fun or mischief. To go a larking means to play a prank or joke on someone.), Catywompus (random, but what a fun word)

Southern:

julep
porch
moss
warm
sauce
bourbon
catillion
camilla
debutante
hoe down

I'm sure there will be more where that came from. Good luck!
