    They mostly sound fine to me. I would eliminate the Romance Doctors because that implies to me that you have some sort of degree/formal training in this. I would expect this to be the name of a sex therapy business.

    Romance on Call sounds like an escort service, so I’d definitely eliminate that. The rest are fine options.

    @NewYorkLady: Your current business name should be your slogan. I voted Calling for Cupid but don’t actually think that’s good, either…can’t think of anything better myself. I have no experience in advertising.

    As an aside, I looked at your blog. What you are doing is unethical: you don’t appear to have any formal training (“life coaching” doesn’t count), and your own relationship is ridiculously short — 1.5 years (?) does not qualify you to counsel other people. I’ve been with my husband for 8 years, have extensively studied what makes a successful marriage, and yet I still wouldn’t CHARGE other couples for advice. 

    The proposal/date planning service is fine, but you should cut out the counseling part — that’s just wrong.

    I voted for the perfect romance, but none of them really caught my eye in particular.

    I am curious if this buisness has been very successful for you?

    I dont really like any of those names, if youre really wanting to have a ligitimate, successful buisness with this idea, the name should be much more sophisticated and classy. These names remind me of things that would be sold on TV…

    I also agree with Valintine about the relationship coaching. 

     I dont think many people would use your service for an idea, thats what google and pinterest are for.  Perhaps planning proposals and dates.  I would also get into engagement parties, bachelor/bachelorette parties, honeymoons and even weddings if you want your business to reach its full potential.

    Good luck!

    I like 2 hearts romance the best. But I have to agree with @valintine:  about your relationship re-boot though. I don’t mean to come off rude but personally if my husband and I were in need of outside help to work on our marriage I wouldn’t consider going to someone who wasn’t  married and had only been with their current partner for 1.5 years.  (Most people would agree the first couple years are the easiest) It takes a lot more to fix a marriage than to just add more romance to it. But I might just not be understanding the role of a “life coach”. But with that said I do think there are some people out there who could use your other services so hope it works out for you!

    just seen your new post.  i still think you should either be a relationship coach business, or a planning business. The 2 dont really seem to go together IMO, and its a bit confusing.

    @NewYorkLady:  As I said, life coaching doesn’t count. What qualifies you to work with couples and relationships, specifically? I think your lack experience and training in this particular area could actively harm couples (hence my statement that this is unethical). I’m sure your intentions are good, but it just is not right. If the field interests you, perhaps you could pursue a degree in psychology with a focus on marriage?

    I also agree with kjo’s point. Counseling and planning are two completely different services. From a business perspective alone you should choose one, but not both. 

    So from both a moral and business perspective, you should focus solely on proposal/date planning. I can see that venture potentially taking off, especially if you expand to other romantic event planning, as the PP suggested.

    @NewYorkLady:  mannnn there are som HATERS out there! I vote for the Love Whisperers (though it’s kinda hard to say).  It’s cute and it plays on modern shows that are out right now. There are some men that are really dense about planning proposals and might need some extra help with photography, planning, surprising, etc.  This could work!

    How about something more obvious like “The Proposal Planners” ? It’s clear and obvious, and if a guy is lazy enough to need your services, I think he’s going to need what you’re selling right there in the name!

    Are there actually guys who need to pay for help planning dates and proposals? I mean, I’ve never heard of such a thing and I can’t imagine it would be successful. No disrespect, but I would be very careful with this business venture.
