Is the name good or not?

Hello guys, I run a home staging business. In the past year, all my clients are Chinese. This year, I started to develop English speaking clients. Kindly ask you guys a question: Is my business name good or not?

It's "Chic Dwelling Studio". I concern I can easily got the domain because it's not good. Usually hot domain were taken long time ago.

Thanks a lot!

"Chic Dwelling Studio" - if I came across that name randomly I would have no idea what that company is about. "Chic" in my head I pronounce as "Chick" (as in baby chicken, or "hot girl"). "Dwelling Studio" - I don't know what that is supposed to mean.

I would choose a name that in some way describes your business and uses common words. I wouldn't base it on what domain names are available, I don't see anything wrong with having a domain name that is slightly different than the name you go by. I would figure out my business name first, then look for a domain that is close to it (add/remove words, use .ca instead of .com, etc.).

^yup, what s/he said. 'chic' doesn't sound appropriate and could be confused with 'chick', esp since you have many Asian clients.

You need to think of a 'stronger' name that also describes your business better imo.
Hard work, inheritance, interest on interest accumulating, and stock and real estate speculation. It's all good.

SuperChicStaging.ca is still available... would have been good to ask first, then register a name.

And I agree that the original name doesn’t reflect your business.

I wouldn't use your service simply because of the word CHIC but there may be people who may become curious about your business because of the word CHIC

You need to know why you want your business name to be Chic dwelling studio.

You home staging better be Chic.
