What's in a Name?

So I am obsessed with the idea of starting an apron business. I think about it day and night sometimes and look at other aprons on the computer constantly. I really want to pursue this but it will have to come some time probably after Christmas (When I hope to get a sewing machine). Anyway, I am trying to think of a name for the business. I have posted a new poll to the right. Please vote on a name. If you have a creative one, please share by commenting here. I'd love to get some more ideas. The problem is that a lot of them are already taken such as: hostesswiththemostess, apronstrings, etc.
Even if you do vote on one of them...try to come up with some other cute names also. I had chosen Proverbs 31 Aprons because I love the picture of Proverbs 31: A woman who takes care of her family and all of her duties with joy and brings glory to God through it all. Here is a picture of the logo I had designed for that name. I wanted to make it look kind of fun and modern. What do you think? Don't forget to vote!

I had to include this:

The Proverbs 31 Woman :

10An excellent wife, who can find?
For her worth is far above jewels.

rare, precious

11The heart of her husband trusts in her,
And he will have no lack of gain.


12She does him good and not evil
All the days of her life.


Her Character
as a Wife

13She looks for wool and flax
And works with her hands in delight.

works joyfully

14She is like merchant ships;
She brings her food from afar.

goes extra mile to get choicest goods

15She rises also while it is still night
And gives food to her household
And portions to her maidens.


16She considers a field and buys it;
From her earnings she plants a vineyard.

enterprising, prudent with money

17She girds herself with strength
And makes her arms strong.


18She senses that her gain is good;
Her lamp does not go out at night.

good steward

19She stretches out her hands to the distaff,
And her hands grasp the spindle.


Her Devotion
as a Homemaker

20She extends her hand to the poor,
And she stretches out her hands to the needy.

compassionate, generous

Her Generosity
as a Neighbor

21She is not afraid of the snow for her household,
For all her household are clothed with scarlet.


22She makes coverings for herself;
Her clothing is fine linen and purple.


23Her husband is known in the gates,
When he sits among the elders of the land.


24She makes linen garments and sells them,
And supplies belts to the tradesmen.


Her Devotion
as a Homemaker

25Strength and dignity are her clothing,
And she smiles at the future.


26She opens her mouth in wisdom,
And the teaching of kindness is on her tongue.


Her Influence
as a Teacher

27She looks well to the ways of her household,
And does not eat the bread of idleness.

manages her home

28Her children rise up and bless her;
Her husband also, and he praises her, saying:


29"Many daughters have done nobly,
But you excel them all."


Her Effectiveness
as a Mother

30Charm is deceitful and beauty is vain,
But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be praised.


31Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates.


Her Excellence
as a Person

~ Proverbs 31:10-31

Love the idea of the apron should check out Anthropologie with me when you guys come to could get some good ideas!

I love Proverbs 31 Aprons...another name that could go along with that is Proverbs 31 Creations, kind of like your aprons are creations based on the Proverbs 31 model. Another name I like is Abundant Life Aprons or just Abundant Aprons. I like it b/c you wanto make them so that you can have a more abundant life(time, kids, etc.) for your family!
