    I am having a very hard time chosing a name. Part of my just wants to stick with my name (Sarah Mansur) but I just dont know. I would like something a bit more creative, but not corny. I thought about using my middle name (Adell) but not sure.

    Ive been trying to think of something for weeks now, and cant come up with anything that I just love. :confused:

    I was thinking about trying to incorporate my kids names...but I cant find a way to do it that sounds right. (Noah and Abigail/Abby)

    I think I have commitment issues...haha!

    Any ideas?

    Go for short, simple and easy to spell.

    Remember that the name and the web address don't need to match. You could be 'Sarah Mansur Photography'...but have a web site of SMP.com or SMPhoto.com etc.

    This is going to sound really stupid , but please read through it and think about it.


    I was watching Oprah ( yea I am a guy and I watch Oprah, don't tell anyone ;} )

    Anyway, she had a lady on the show, that invented some stockings for women, apparently she did some research and names with the "k" sound really stick in peoples minds, like Kodak, Coka Cola, etc. Her product and company name was called Spankx , made sense since these stockings pushed up the back portion of the wearer.

    As you can see by my signature line, I tried it. Hasn't done allot for me thus far but makes a good story and people always ask how I came up with it. If nothing else it was fun and different.

    I think something short and distinctive is good. You're lucky in that you have a distinctive second name. You don't need to use your first name. 'Mansur photography' - sounds lot more interesting and creative .coms available too. good luck

    Good point , whatever you do decide you , you might want to check godaddy.com they have a tool that will tell you if whatever name you want to use is available.
