What's in a name?

I have really been pondering what to call my new business venture. I am terrible at making up names, which is how I got stuck with Annie Beez Folk Art for my doll business. My husband suggested it when we first got email, and I couldn't think of anything better for my business. Isn't that pathetic? It's not a horrible name by any means, and has a cetain catchiness which is good, but I have always thought it a little too cutesy and unimaginative.
So here are some thing I have come up with so far:

Anne Elizabeth Samplings- this is another play off of my name, and I thought I could shorten it to AnneE for emails and such. Also Anne is my patron saint and Elizabeth is my confirmation name. (my middle name is Marie, so with 3 famous bible mothers as my namesake is it any wonder I have so many children? LOL!)

Stolen Moments Needleart-this is just a sentiment of how I feel whenever I am stitching. I always feel like I should be doing something else. In a household this size there is an endless stream of things to be done-I'm sure you can all relate!

Mustard House - this is a nod to my primitive style, and my house is an old farmhouse painted mustard. Also the first sampler I ever designed myself was called Mustard house.

This is all I have so far, please ANY suggestions, comments, etc. are MOST welcome. I told you I'm not good at making up names!!!LOL!

Hmmmm, I like the Mustard House idea. What about Anniebeez Designs or Anniebeez Samplars? Nothing else coming to me right now.

I like the sound of Mustard House too - how about Mustard House Primitive?
