Is the name good or not?

Hi~
I'm running a home staging business, and I registered my business name as Chic Dwelling Studio. I'm not sure if the name is good or bad, cz I'm not good at English:( Does the word "chic" give a sense of "cheap"?
Thank you very much!

The name is a bit of a hot mess, but there is nothing grammatically incorrect with the word chic. The name is very generic, and doesn't really scream "staging".

If you are female would your clients refer to you as “chick”? How about “stage right” or “prop you up”?

I personally think the name is too long, and if there is any room for people to mispronounce your name, they will. Dwelling isn't a popular word, I would use a synonym for that word of something a bit more mainstream and familiar to the tongue.
Also, You may want to stay away from dwelling since it may limit your future. Dwelling is typically used for residential, you would cause some confusion if you were to expand to commercial staging for instance.
how about:
class staging
class studio
vogue staging
stage modish

play around with these, hopefully it lights a spark somewhere and goodluck :)
A little trick I like to add when naming my entities, is to add a personal touch to it, I find a reason of why I want to start my business or something that is dear to me and incorporate that into the name to make it unique.

In today's business world you have to completely misspell the name... and add an "R" to the end for no reason.

I see the mess now. No wonder the domain is so easy to register!

I would make it a little more obscure. Use your initials and a word like studios after it. This way you can be a home stager and an interior designer.

Chic usually implies fashion or make up.

I recently hired someone make a few names for me. Then I picked out 6 names. What do you think of them?

1) Enchant Home Staging / Home Enchant / Enchant Home Design
(Why it's "enchant"? Isn't it "Enchanting"?)

2) Staging Whisperer
(I like the movie horse whisperer, but not sure about the word "whisperer". Sometimes it has negative meaning, isn't it? )

3) Perfection Highlights
(Just not indicate my staging business)

4) The Real Estate Groomer

5) Showstopper Home Staging / Showstopper Homes
(a little bit too long)

6) Sizzling Hot Homes

Tons of thanks!!!

Hope you didn't pay them much, some of those are awful. #4 is about the only one that's decent IMO.

Keep it simple. The results of your work is more important than a name. I'd go with something along the lines of what Gee said above, like RS Staging etc.

Consider are couple things are you looking to create a brand "Chic" or just have a business name for your single business offering?

If you're planning on expanding your business proposition than perhaps a more branded name would suit you better. However if you're looking just to articulate what your business does I'd recommend a name that tells me about what you do in a couple words

I really don't have any sense about English. Could you please give me a clue why those names are messy?

I don't really have to follow "chic", especially when someone told me "chic" can be pronounced as "chick".

If your main purpose is staging homes for sale, I would try to avoid things like "chic"' because the people hiring you don't want a decorator. They want to make a lot of money selling their home quickly.

Did you check whether things like Stage2SellHigh or Stage2SellFast are available domains?
or
iStagetoSellHigh? etc

It's tricky picking a name; I hope you find one you like soon.

I like shorter names because i always find websites with long domain names look cheap.

I guess you are keeping the chic name? Since you already paid for the registration and cannot think of a new name yet?

I agree with all other posters. I don't like those other suggested names.

Somebody also said that people are looking for fast business so I don't think they care about your business name. Maybe it's more important to establish why your service may be of any assistance to whoever you are providing your business for.

I don't think it's that expensive to change a business name. The brand name you use also does not need to be the registered business name.
