What's in a name?

I have been sewing up a storm lately, and making a lot of things for other people, so, i am starting to think of names for my sewing/crafty business...

First on the list so far is "llamalass sweatshop"

this idea came to me when i was sewing in the laundry room with the iron on and the dryer going.

that is really it on the list.  I thought about P.O.E.  but that is too limiting.  people expect only goth or alternative stuff if you have a name like that.

I showed my brother a purse i made on the weekend, and he said "don't you need a name or something if you are going to sell a bag?" so i told him i was thinking of llamalass sweatshop, and he said "oh, ok," and went on eating tostitos and gaucomole.  i think that means he liked the name.  not sure, but i think.

so what do you guys think?

i am also toying with the idea of opening an etsy shop.  does anybody know anyone who has opened one?  i do better with computer stuff with someone showing me what to do than reading their instructions.

Dude, llamas sweatshop is brilliant. Go with it.

Also, check out Schmutzie.com. She's got an etsy shop and it's great and she's pretty friendly so you could ask for advice.
