Another Name Assistance Plea
April 21, 2011 8:47 PM   Subscribe

Please help name another business/Etsy store/website. (I had to ask because I am stuck and you are good at it!)

My future web presence is stalled because I cannot come up with a good name for a site and Etsy shop. My given name is pretty dull, and I’d rather a cute/funny/memorable business name.

My art is primarily pen and ink (occasionally acrylic) imaginary creatures. Sort of dragon-like, horse-like, dog-like with teeny interior details or sometimes just bright colors. Planning on hawking prints and possibly t-shirts at some point (I have done tees in the past). Here’s a not great scan/doodle/example: Rawr.

My thus far unsatisfactory stabs include: Fancy Beast (taken), Beast Factory, Stellar Thicket (favorite so far, but not very descriptive), Kindly Beast, Hypothetical Pet. My previous Etsy shop was MonsterOps but I don’t love it.
You guys are quite excellent in the roller derby/Etsy Store/Other naming of things, so please help. Thank you!

Response by poster: omg pwally that is outstanding. Though, there is a tattoo shop and some kinda art establishment using that name. Also I think "beast" may be more apt than monster. I tried using "creature" also but arrgh, nothing yet.
