    None of those names really stick out to me as modern or fun. A lot of modern companies have short names. What about “simply fleur” or just “fleur”

    I like peony florals because it is simple, easy to pronounce and makes me think of lovely beautiful flowers. I already have other associations with the word magnolia and I hate when I can’t pronounce things 100% like the word Fleur or noir (I know how technically but it’s hard and I don’t like it). 

     

    Sorry for any typos on my phone.

    I voted Peony Florals because it’s the simplest but could you do something catchier/simpler?  Like Petals?  Or maybe… Carrnations or S-Carr-let Petals lol?  those sounds like a weird travel company and a brothel respectively but maybe you could think of something else.

    Old joke… What would America be called if everyone drove a pink vehicle? 

     

     

     

     

     

     A Pink car nation…

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    You could play off that… Pink CarrNations

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

    Maybe your logo could be a “retro” car painted pink with a bouquet coming out of it like a vase.

    If I ever get to open up  my own business I would call it “Six Eighteen”  That’s the house number where I grew up (we just lost our parents in the last 3 years) purely sentimental.

    for you, I wouldn’t use, The carr shop, too confusing, don’t rush it, it will hit you and you’ll be glad you waited for the perfect name!!  good luck!

    The Carr Shop, I think of cars auto shop. The other names, I just can;’t prounounce so I give up. The only one I like is the Magnolia one.

    None of those names jumped out at me. I thought they all seemed normal. What I’d expect. I liked what a previous bee suggested – about keeping it simple, I like “Fleur”…

    I also like another bee’s suggestion of CarrNation… I wouldn’t capitalize the N, I’d just maybe make Carr and a fancier font or something.

    I really like Fleur actually… being french makes it sound a little more posh, fancy… I’d immediately rather check out that place than some where called “______ Floral Design”… Just sounds more modern

    I like tge idea of incorporating your name.

    how about, 

    Flora Carr – make it like a imaginary girl 

    Carr Floral Desigh – sounds like a business

    Fluer de Carr – kinda rymes

    @mrsmeyers84:  What is your all time favourite flower?  maybe find out what it’s called in French?  Use that? 

    Or it could be something completely unrelated to flowers….

    I like the idea of using the word Urban in the title… or Barn  the something barn?  Or Urban ____  with the name of your fave flower?

    I am no good at this lol
