Name for a matchmaking agency?
« on: July 29, 2020, 12:14:22 am »

One of my protags runs a matchmaking agency. Possible names for this agency:

Find Your Forever

Your Fairy Tale Forever

Find Your Fairy Tale Forever

Soulmates Inc.

Singles to Soulmates

Twin Souls

Which do you like best? Or can you suggest anything better, catchier?


This agency also has a branch where people pay big bucks to be matched with other high-earners. Possible names for this branch:

The Cream of the Crop

La Crme de la Crme

The Beau Monde

Elite Matches

A-List Matches

Fortune 500 Matches

Premium Partners

again, which do you like best or can you suggest anything better?

Thanks!

    Soulmates Inc in the first, and Elite Matches for second. The concept for 2nd list is very innovative! It's like.making it to NYT bestsellers list!

    Names I came up with:

    Soul Snatch

    Heart2Heart

    Cupid Catch

    Love At First Sight

    Weddings And Blessings

    Find Your Darling

    Magic Karpet (from Alauddin)

    Blooming Blushes

    Don't know if websites exist under such names.

    For the premium catalogue,

    Royal Husbands

    Royal Wives

    Avant Garde

    Luxury Lounge

    Million Dollar Smiles

    Celebrity Class

    Star Struck

    Again, don't know if websites using above names.

    Those are some good names! I was avoiding anything to do with Cupid since OKCupid is an actual dating site.

    But based on your suggestions, I like Cupid Carpet.

    Their pitch could be: Ride the Cupid Carpet to Love!

    And their logo could be a cute little cherub with wings and a bow and arrow thats shooting hearts out. And the cherub is on a flying carpet.

    And they give all successful female clients that they manage to match up a necklace with that Cupid as a pendant and also Cupid earrings. What do you think?
    They dont give the men anything. The men got the women. What more do they need?

    Or ok, they could give the men a Cupid tie pin. Their partners could use it as a brooch if the men don't wear tie pins.

    Now I think I love that. And for the Premium one, maybe:

    The Cream of Cupid Carpet

    that one Im not so sure about. Its a bit of a mouthful.

    And Cash-rich Cupid just sounds tacky. Maybe:

    Elite Cupid Carpet

    What do you think?

    Yep, I like both of those too.  But a lot of the names on the list are winners because of how believable they are.  Only one I might suggest is CuddleQuest.  CuddleQuest, a subsidiary of HugsPlus.

    What do you think?
    Some more names:

    Romeo Meet Juliet
    Or
    Juliet Meet Romeo
    Depending on the target audience m/f

    Lucky Puck

    Click Puck (animation of Puck adding eye drops upon clicking mouse or touching in touch screen)

    Get Lucky (ugh, Daft Punk and Pharrell) - so, Get Luckee!

    For premium: (sometimes this section is further classified like our subgenres)

    Smoking Guns (based on WWE tag team - Billy Gunn & Bart Gunn) - this is a little bit western theme featuring rich cowboys - Or make it Smoking Gunz

    Hey Gigolo! - again for those seeking divorced men

    Rainbow Delights - for LGBTQ oriented seekers

    Choco Delights - for those seeking afro-americans)

    Blonde Bombshell (men seeking blondes)

    Desert Rose (ugh, Cheb Mami & Sting) - but this is also common like Get Lucky. Okay, Dessert Rose or Desert Roze for rich Arab girls, you know, daughters of millionaire sheiks.

    ---

    How about another pitch for Cupid Carpet:

    Cupid Carpet. A magical odyssey with your beloved.

    Your logo Idea looks great.

    The gifting idea looks innovative too! Okay, some perks for the dudes as well. Haha!

    Oh, and that brings up another name, Dude Love, for normal catalogue, but that's the name of a WWE wrestler, Mick Foley AKA Mankind AKA Cactus Jack. Maybe Dude Luv if not wanting repetition?

    Oh, Jack reminds of Jack of All - a site for women seeking lower middle class temping guys or those holding multiple jobs.

    If you want to include 'Cupid' in premium catalogue, how about:
    Classy Cupids

    Classy Cupid

    Wealthy Cupids

    The Wealthy Cupid

    If you want carpet feel, then, how about:

    Alauddin's Red Carpet Cupids

    VIP Cupids! Alauddin says: "Roll the magical red carpet!" (and add the magic carpet pitch)

    Instead of Alauddin saying, you can show his cartoon with the message blast.

    Some puns can't be resisted. Since it is a matchmaking agency, how about

    Fires-R-Us
    Strike a Flame
    Fire up your life
    Burning for you]
    Then that good old stand by: There will be a hot time in the old town tonight.

    Sorry for a bad answer to a good question.

    .

    Your basic service should be named like hair salons and corner bars, you know those with the cutesy clever names like "Hair today Gone Tomorrow". Using your list:

    Soulmate Search
    Finding Forever

    Your premium service should be something discrete, like a pair of old English names stiffly pressed together "Thornton Pembroke". Because it's a discrete clientele that you basically get invited to join or get sponsored by other members to join. No advertising. No sign out front, just discrete lettering on the glass door. Or it might be completely disguised like "The Pembroke Paper Arts Society".

    Of your list,
    Elite Matches seems like it's been used, probably trademarked already.

    Perhaps
    Creme Monde Matches

    .

    Thanks, everyone. VisitasKeat, I like Red Carpet Cupid for the premium one.

    the agency also runs a Makeover School. they give men and women physical makeovers, improving their hair styles, posture, wardrobes, dress sense etc. and also personality development classes to help them improve their personalities.

    Which names do you like best for the Makeover School:

    The Frog to Prince Makeover School [I think that could sound insulting]

    The Duckling to Swan Makeover School

    Swan Makeover School

    Makeover Magic

    I don't really like any of the above. Can you think of anything better?

    Thanks again, everyone. VisitasKeat, wow, you are great at coming up with names.

    I loved Cupid Carpet, but when I googled it, I saw there is an actual carpet company that sells a carpet called Cupid.

    Yeesh. Who calls a carpet Cupid? I mean, what sort of name is that for a carpet? Tim or Bob would have done just as well. If I had to name a carpet, Id call it something like Luxuria.

    I know I can still use it, but now I fear it sounds too much like a carpet company rather than a matchmaking agency.

    Instead how about Cupids Kiss? But I really liked the idea of the carpet logo.

    Well, why cant I still use it? Its my story; I get to do what I want. So they can call the company Cupids Kiss but still use the pitch: Ride the Cupid Carpet to Love!

    and I like your pitch too: A magical odyssey with your beloved.

    And their logo could still be a cute little cherub on a flying carpet.

    And I can still use your Red Carpet Cupid for the premium one.

    I'm not sure about the names for the makeover school. None seem just right, but Ill think some more on it. Maybe something like:

    The Best You Makeover School

    Fabulous You Makeover School

    Frump to Fab Makeover School

    Glum to Glam Makeover School

    Glum to Glam, Frump to Fab Academy/School/World

    Glum to Glam, Frump to Fab Prep [I like this one]


    Another character runs a school where he teaches men how to seduce women. Im not sure whether he should have a blunt name for it such as:

    Charm Her Pants/Panties Off Flirting School

    or maybe something more subtle whose name suggests hes teaching flirting rather than seducing.

    Do you have any ideas for this school, either an in-your-face name or something more subtle? Im considering both at the moment.

    NewFlex (kind of like "got a new flex")
    Tyrannosaurus Flex
    1%+1% (for the big bucks one)
    Mirror, Mirror (for the make over)
    The Short List (for the big bucks one)
    Lift (make over)

    Heh, just throwing out random ideas.  I like "Love Files" that VisitasKeat suggested, but maybe something like "Love List" or "Lust List"

    There was a TV series in the US a decade or more ago, called Miss Match.  There may also be a series (web series?) called Mismatch.

    VisitasKeat, I thought the carpet in the logo for Cupids Kiss could be colored pink and blue, to indicate both sexes.

    While the carpet in the logo for Red Carpet Cupid, the premium one, could be colored red.

    Im also looking for a name for the dating classes the agency runs.

    What do you think of:

    The Love Files [as you suggested earlier]

    The Dating Files


    The Love Wars Dating School

    Davina's Dating Do's and  Don'ts

    Davina's Dating Do's and DEATHS

    Darlings' Dating Do's and Deaths

    Kill Your Darlings Dating School

    [the above means get rid of all the moves and come-ons you thought were so good but seem too obvious or just plain bad. It might be a bit too subtle for readers to understand but Davina would explain what it means.]

    or can you suggest anything better? Thanks!
