Etsy Shop Name

Someone pointed out to me that "Handmade By KJA" sounds like a corporation, and suggested "Handmade By Kathryn" as an alternative. Unfortunately, that name is already taken. Indeed, many, many names (and variants thereof) are already taken for Etsy stores, because they never allow names to be reused, even if they are no longer active.

So, I've been checking possible names, and here are some which are available... for the moment. I've made a poll, to see what y'all think of them.

Yes, the last one is silly. That's why it's there, because it's silly.

You know why I voted for "Imaginary Cheese"? Because it's funny, memorable, and suggests that this will be a shop full of uncommon and interesting things made by a person with a delightful sense of humour. :)

Hmm, I could see a logo for that of a thought/dream bubble containing a triangular segment of swiss cheese...

I think my favourite is Diverse Devisings. I also like Essence of Eclectic. Artisan of Awesome might sound too much like boasting, even though I'm sure it's true.

I can't tell you why, but Diverse Devisings just made me smile. I'd go with that.

Diverse Devisings is my favourite, with Artisan of Awesome a close second.

I;m not at all sure what to make of Imaginary Cheese.

I like "Imaginary Cheese", but also the first one seems a little more business-like. Maybe it could be a subtitle like--"Imaginary Cheese: Handmade by KJA"

(Or any of the others at the front, really. I do like "Diverse Devisings", but the cheese one is fun and funky.

I really like the Essence and Diverse ones. Did you choose one yet?
