Deciding on a name is one of the most important decisions you have to make when starting your own venture or company. Finding a great name can also be a lot of fun.
For me the name came easy. As a child my brother and I would name all of our pets with names that started with the letter “M”. It was just a continuation of our family trend… Mary, Maryann, Michael, Mark, Michelle, Margaret, Megan– you get the picture.
So although I didn’t pick a new M name. I wanted to pick a name for my new venture that meant something. Maddie and Mary are my two grandmothers. They were a big influence in my life and so I honor them.
I am Rosemary’s grand-daughter
The spitting image of my father
And when the day is done,
my mama’s still my biggest fan
Sometimes I’m clueless and I’m clumsy
But I’ve got friends who love me
And they know just where I stand
-country song “Who I Am” by Jessica Andrews
maddieandmarry — is my brainchild. Simple and sweet… the perfect name for my graphic design and stationery start-up venture. It reflects my past and future. It represents childhood, marriage and everything good in life.
Now I just need to design a logo, etc. branding for my new venture (adventure is more like it!).
