Name suggestion for a nerdy crochet business
October 12, 2017 9:19 PM   Subscribe

I am thinking about starting a small nerdy crochet business that will operate on Etsy and at local cons. I need a name!

My focus will be on amigurumi of popular video game characters and nerdy pop culture staples. I'm trying to think of something clever that will hint at the nerdy focus without actually using the word nerdy (or geeky, I hate those words despite using "nerdy" 5 times in this post). I know that's very broad criteria but I would like to hear any suggestions! Thank you.

I'm not sure how to phrase this in real crochet terms, but I thought of purl/perl.

String Theory, while a great name, is already the name of a (really great) yarn business -- maybe too much intersect?

Would it be some sort of copyright infringement to call it FunCroPop?
