Do you ever buy, or not buy, a diaper based on its name?? i'll admit i have passed up a few companies b/c i didn't like the name (any name that has to do with the "activity" that goes on in a diaper is unappealing to me).

my favorite diaper name is "freshies." it sounds so, well, fresh and breezy, and clean. i don't own any freshies diapers, but i started calling my son's diapers "freshies" (as in, "it's time for a freshie dipe?") after i heard the name.

These are just my little meaningless opinion.

Worst - Poopockets (ugh!)
Best - Full Moon Baby Gear (cute and hip!)

I have not bought many a WAHM dipe because the name turned me off. I'm so shallow like that! : There are names with references to body parts in them that can be so totally cute , but they can definitely be kinda oogy too. It totally depends.

YES! Anything too cutesie (sp?) or with too many syllables is a total turn-off for me :LOL I also don't like when one diaper site is a twist on another's name...although it must be hard to come up with a new/never thought of way to say "we sell diapers!"

I agree that FMBG is one of the best names! Fluffy Mail is also fun (along with First Class Baby and Little Caboose). Some other appealing names are Mosaic Moon, Celestial Baby, Sellin Threads (love that one!)....

I'm sure there are a ton more, but my brain is not functioning properly at this late hour....


(Oh, I also don't like PooPockets )

I don't wanna say but there is one that makes me cringe when I see it, but I will keep that to myself :LOL
I love fullmoonbabygear! I also love luxebaby, it looks so beautiful and fabulious!
I do not buy from companies with animal names or sounds that animals make, gets on my nerves reminds me of "baby talk" <<shudder>>
I will also not buy from a refrence to poop, pee or farts. Its like "yeah I know, its fluff lets not think of such things like what they actually do in it"
:LOL
Ok I am a weirdo.....

I do like Sweetiebums & Celestial Baby.

I agree Full Moon Baby Gear is very cute, as is Luxe Baby. Oh, and I really like Cotton Pickin' Creations as well. I also like Wooly Wonders, Mosaic Moon and Fuzbaby.

I ALWAYS confuse SugarPieBaby with SugarPlumBaby with SugarBums...Oh MY!

There are so many, I need to brush up on em.

This thread makes me really sad. Without giving out too much information (so I'm not violating any guidelines) my diapers are named for "what goes on in a diaper" because my 8 year old ds named them for me. It's cute and he's proud--there's a story behind them. But now to find out someone may pass up my diapers because of the name really saddens me.

Thanks! I just went and put up our "story" (although I'm having some technical difficulties with it and can't get it to show up!). :LOL

I know there are more people out there looking for dipes than the people here...it just makes me sad.

I like freshies and wonderoos names
I don't think I ever came across a name that I thought was disgusting, some I thought were a little funny, but it's all good! It's all in the name of cloth

Brayg don't feel sad, we're all just having a little fun here. I'm sure your diapers speak for themselves (and I for one will be getting one when there are mediums available, hehehe) and there's no need to worry about the name.

Interesting statement and no doubt true. It makes me think that you are taking this personally, as if the fact that some people don't like the name of your dipes as some kind of personal rejection or slight.

It takes bravery for WAHM's to put their wares out there in public, and part of the natural process is that people will comment both positively and negatively on your name and your product. You obviously chose a name that has meaning for you and that you like, but others have different tastes and no personal connection to your family, so it's unrealistic to think that everyone's going to react the same way. So what if some people don't like it?

On the OT, I really like Divine Coverings (though I've never tried a diaper from there) as a name, as well as Bottom Bumpers and several of those already mentioned. I do not like Dingleberryz or however it's spelled.

Don't feel bad! Really like Karla said, it isn't a personal slight at all. People have personal prefrences that is life. Now if someone told you that your diaper site was named correctly because you had a fat rear (yes someone did say this to me) then you could take it personally. (it was family and they THOUGHT they were funny) My rear is big, I am proud of it, Joe's rear is big now too, and I it too!

As for names I like, I like Fluffymail because it makes me look forward to getting it double time. I also like Tye Dye Dreams, because it is descriptive and well makes me dream... and the ones I don't like are ones that confuse me (that I can't pronounce) or ones that I don't 'get' right away. The Wee Cee Dee that someone mentioned confused the crap out of me for the longest time...no one said I was the brightest bulb in the bunch now....

If it's a good diaper I don't care what it's called! Sure there may be some names I don't care for, but that doesn't stop me from buying. (Ha, if I have premission to buy not much stops me!)

Marnie- Someone really said that to you? : I love the name of your biz!

I also really like Fluffymail because I think it was ingenious to use that term as a name.

Marnie.... guess what? I just *got* it when I read the PP's like of the name. I was like *oh yeah.... We CD! NOW I get it!!!!*

So don't feel bad at all....

And then I am the person who sat in Aladdin (before kids, of course!) and we were reading the credits to see whose voices were in the movie. I turned to my DH and said "what do you think an in-bet-weener is?" The woman in front of us starting laughing hysterically, leaned back and said "that's inbetweener" Man was my face

It isn't so much that people don't like the name--I can handle that, as long as they are open-minded enough to give the diaper a chance, despite the name. But I saw a few "I won't try xxxx diaper because of the name" which I guess, as a new, upcoming WAHM makes me feel I've got a big ol' X on my face right out of the gate, kwim?

I know my product will speak for itself, *if* I can get people to try them, but if they are going to stay away because of what I've named them, then I guess I would take it personally.

Anyhoo...just offering a different perspective from the WAHM side.

i think some of the names that refer to what goes on in the diaper are kinda cute. poopockets? it's funny. a pocket full of poo. but then my sense of humour can be a little....unique.
i Loveybums, myself, and Warm Heart Woolies.
s to all the creative mamas and your clever names for your businesses. goodness it's hard to pick one you know, we tried and tried to come up with a creative name for our farm and came up dry. So it's just *our last name here* Farms. Now that's lame.
I'd never be able to think of something myself!

Customers or potential customers aren't required to be open minded about anything, much less something about a product or business practices related to it. We have so many choices for diapering products now that it is many times our personal preferences that guide our decisions to try or not try something. Some people won't buy diapers from websites with typos (hi Marnie!), I won't buy diapers from websites that have religious content on them, and I've seen various other reasons for not trying products that range from don't like the website design to poor quality pictures or unfavorable return policies. Customers are very idiosyncratic in their preferences, and you don't need to satisfy everybody to have a decent business. So I say make your choices and be proud of them, find your niche, and avoid dwelling on what people say they don't like (unless it's constructive feedback).
