Help me choose a shop name!

Getting ready to open a shop on Zibbet. I can only choose this name once so I want it to be the one.

My main craft is crochet but I'm also thinking about sewing some things too.

The Crochet Penguin is near and dear to me as its my Etsy shop name from long ago. It's also my kids' favorite at the moment. But I know it may not work if I want to offer sewing items too.

La Petit Manatee came out of my love for the French language and sea animals. I'm just not sure if sounds as nice as it does in my head. "La Petit" translates into "The Little".

If you have any other name ideas/suggestions throw them my way!

Re: Help me choose a shop name!

I like La Petit Manatee but love The Crochet Penguin. Sure it focuses more on your crochet items, but many wahms appear to keep their old store names as they grow and add new and different types of things to their store. I think it would work just fine, you just might have to work a little harder to attract people that want those things that are sewn. One thing I really like about The Crochet Penguin is that it does tell me something about what you have in your store. La Petit Manatee is cute, but I don't really get a feel for your store before I visit it. Maybe The Crochet and Sew Penguin, if you don't mind adding more words, or La Petit Crochet and Sew Penguin?

And it's grammatically correct

OP be careful with your french grammar. The way you wrote it is not correct. Let me know if you need help.

It's La Petite*
or Le Petit
La is feminine, Le is masculine
(I'm from Canada and speak French
Do you want Manatee to be in French or English?

Re: Help me choose a shop name!

Thank you everyone for all the advice and suggestions! =) It's given me lots to think about. I used the help of google translator to try to get the french words right.

~Scarlettmama: I was keeping Manatee in English because I liked how it sounded. So it should be La Petite Manatee?

Again Thank You everyone for replying!!

Yes or Le Petit Manatee. Either is fine. Its one or the other. One is masculine and the other feminine.
