Need opinions-I'm thinking about starting a cloth diaper business-basically I'll be sewing bamboo (and possibly other fabrics) prefolds and/or flats with doublers and maybe adding in interlock wool pants later. Anyway, its still in its idea stage, though I'm going to start messing with fabric here soon! Woo!

So I was going to order some things, realized that it'd be smart to make all of these things I need (paypal, ebay, etc) with my company name, rather than starting all over when I'm ready to sell. I have the name narrowed down to 2 names but I can't pick which and I need opinions.

I'm going to try to set up a poll but if that doesn't work, please just let me know which you prefer. Also, if this isn't the proper place for this, please feel free to move it to a more appropriate forum

Anywho, the names are: Cupcake Diapers or Cupcakerific Diapers. I have a thing for cupcakes. Also, most of the time I'm leaving the diapers part off of it...so the diaper tag would read *Cupcake* *Cupcakerific*

TIA for any opinions! Or if you think you have a better name, let me know!

I voted Cupcake because it is cute and simple and I love simple, easy to remember names! Good luck, it sounds like a great business!

Yes i agree!

Your life doesnât change by the man whos elected. If your loved by someone you can't be rejected... decide what to be and go be it! If your a caged bird brake in and demand that somebody free it.

I also like 'cupcake' better. IMO 'cupcakerific' is just a bit of a mouthful...no pun intended! Also, where you're dealing with a shop and a url, you want something that people can spell without having to look it up to remember if there's an extra a or e or whatever in the middle...simple is good.

Yeah, I can understand that...I've had to go back a few times and double check the erific part, haha. I think I may go with Cupcake Dipes, but possibly name the website Cupcakerific.com-because its actually available! Woo! But for starters I'm leaning towards Hyena Cart/Ebay/Etsy anyway, so I guess I'll cross that road when I get to it. I can probably figure out some other combo with cupcake that's easier to spell anyway .

I'm awaiting my first order of bamboo, if all goes well I'll be opening up soon! Yay!!!
