Still need name suggestions....

I don't want you all to forget to help me out with suggestions (Caryn's is FUNNY but a bit too long, I think???) for a company name, but I wanted to share some signs from a funny email forward my mom sent me:






My favorite is the cat. There you go: a sample of my sense of humor! This is what I find funny!!!

Ha ha! These signs were too funny.

Okay, name suggestions.
Ama is latin for "love". I believe it is actually a command, but I'm not sure. How about Ama Mama. Might be a little hard to say, all those m's and a's. But you could play with it.

Chiniar is Spanish for 'to hold'. A person whose job it is to hold a baby is called a 'chiniara'. (chin-yara). But this might sound too close to China and be confusing.

I would suggest doing a brainstorm. Under each category you've listed (midwife, doula, art etc.) make a list of all the words that come to mind, free flow.

For instance:
midwife
birth
deliver
love
help
woman
strong
natural
home
educate
inform
choice
baby
life
new
pregnant
expect
due
healthy
blossom
bloom
flower
unfold
support
tree
belly
breast
milk
womb
body
mind
soul

and so on.

then see if any of the words can be put together, or if there are any recurring images, or if you can make a word play with some of the concepts.

I think if you decide to go with a made up word that has connotations to some concepts in English, you might be able to use it more easily for all your businesses.
