Need Some Input

I am trying to get things in order to establish some sort of web design/card sales company, but I need a good name. I'm in a terrible rut, and only seem to be able to think of names with "Designs" at the end, all of which are terrible. I would like the name to capture a bit of the essence of my card line, which means it should probably involve nature or maybe faith in some sort of clever way. That said, I am not limiting myself to just those categories, because let's face it, I'm getting nowhere fast.

Lay your ideas on me in comment form. Hopefully one of you is more clever than I.

Natural Splendor?

Faithful Creations?

Krist Kards?

Ooh... Xenophobic Pickle Horse

Seriously, the first two are ok, but I'm sure you're looking for something that rings a little better.

You know, I actually considered the name "Intelligent Design" because it does sound good, but I don't actually believe in intelligent design as a scientific theory, so it would be both contraversial and sort of hypocritical of me to use it. :)

My latest unfortunate attempt: Naturally Crafted Designs. Booo! Hopefully others will post here and something will rise up, either individually or via combination of several options.

I'm gonna add more to this comment via editing as I think of them:
Elegant by Nature
Attractive by Nature
Waterfront/Backyard/Natural Inspirations
Waterfront Design
Gray's Creek Designs

Right now I'm using Natural Design and have a logo working. I'm still hoping a better name can be substituted shortly.

Thanks for chipping in.

I'm surprised you didn't jump on 'Krist Kards'... if you don't somebody will.

Evil Genius Cards

Cards of a kind

Magothy Maggots

Moss Magothy

I still like the maggots one better...

Or...Sadistic Starling Designs?

Chesapeake Cheer (Sounds like the name of a beer)


BTW wish your mum a Happy Mother's day.

Hmmm, Chesapeake is a word I hadn't yet considered. Honestly, I like New York Avenue Designs a lot, but I don't know that my work backs up the feel of that name. Gonna think on both.

On second thought, I'm just going with Xenophobic Pickle Maggots.

Hmm.... I'd lean toward Xenophobic Pickle Maggots myself, but.... here's a quick stab...

Nature by Design
Natural Formations
All Creations
Word and Form

Not great but... more for the fire. If I come up with anything else I'll let you know.

Ooh, couple more:

Shoreline Design

(Flipping around first suggestion)
Design by Nature

And I forgot the phrase I was thinking of, but something to do with Wings or Flight might be good--representative of birds as well as angel wings, getting in both faith and nature.

Hey Andy,

just as suggested in my mail:

Amos Design (Andy it?!)
Hammer Inc.

anything I forgot?

Adding to my "meh" list:

Nature's Hymn Design(s)/Nature's Anthem Design(s)

Well, just random but I've always loved the latin word Spero (pronounced Sparrow). It means hope.

What about Nature's Spero


Dovetail's Designs
Whispers of the River
