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 Crème de la Crème

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!

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 that’s 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 don’t 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 I’m not so sure about. It’s a bit of a mouthful.

And Cash-rich Cupid just sounds tacky. Maybe:

Elite Cupid Carpet

What do you think?

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, I'd 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 Cupid's Kiss? But I really liked the idea of the carpet logo.

Well, why can't I still use it? It's my story; I get to do what I want. So they can call the company Cupid's 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 I'll 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. I'm 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 he's teaching flirting rather than seducing.

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

VisitasKeat, I thought the carpet in the logo for Cupid's 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.

I'm 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!
