    I like Moon a la Mode the best for a couple of reasons. It will be hard to spread news of your business by word of mouth if you go with a title in French that goes much past “belle” or “lune” since people won’t know how to spell it. If they find it the first time, it will also make it harder to remember, and harder to type into a search engine.

    Secondly, I can just imagine the cutest logo for Moon a la Mode! 🙂

    @Mariangeles: Belle Mariée.

    Belle Lune rolls off the tongue better. I do hate to see French things without the article though 🙁  Just a personal pet peeve.

    But I think Italian sounds better: bella luna.  It would also look better as a logo imho.

    @jo.lee: To me Moon à la Mode makes me think of brownies.  If you keep the A in caps the accent isn’t obligatory, but it looks better with the a and the la in lowercase.

    Sorry to be nitpicky but I get bugged by people using foreign languages for business titles but then not doing it correctly.  To me I am immediately turned off by that because I feel like they didn’t bother to do a little research before naming their company.

    Is your business going to be oriented to brides primarily?

    Just la belle lune: the beautiful moon, or une belle lune: a beautiful moon.  There’s nothing wrong with not having the article.. especially b/c it may easier not to for branding reasons.  I just wanted to bring it up for awareness reasons.  The article thing doesn’t bother me as much for business names and stuff b/c people in France leave them off as well sometimes.  I just hate to see it when people didn’t even know to consider it and decide whether to leave it out or not.  But the accent marks do matter!  An a without the accent mark makes the name something different French-wise.

    I think the first two choices are very common and can commonly be mispelled.  I wouldn’t go with anything along those lines. 

    I like Moon a la Mode!

    @Mariangeles: Ok good… I was kinda worried it would come across a bit snarky, because I totally didn’t mean it that way.  I just imagine there are other people out there like me with similar pet peeves.

    @Mariangeles: I would not know what Belle Mariee meant without the description, but I would have figured out Belle Lune (although, Bella Luna is more understandable) as someone else implied.

    Moon A La Mode makes me think of pie and ice cream….
