Cloth Nappy Shops: What’s in a name?

I am often curious about how the WAHM’s come up with a name for their cloth nappy shop – is it named after their baby, something their baby said, something about their life or interests? I asked a bunch of Nappy Doula’s about the names of their shop:

Our Nappy Experts are invited to contribute to these cooperative questions so that you get a range of informative and experienced responses about the topic. Enjoy and discover something new, and share with us in the comment box below.

Let’s see what they have to say:

The name of your shop: What does it represent or how did you come up with it?

Tamara from Baby Mumma:

BabyMumma…. The name I settled on is the basis of what I would like my end result to be. Something for Baby and something for Mumma. A lot of the time we forget about Mumma and concentrate on that little miracle inside. At BabyMumma I hope to be able to offer affordable Mumma products along side affordable baby products.

Rebecca from Bean Sprout Bubba:

The name of my shop Bean Sprout Bubba? It was the only name I could come up with that wasn’t taken!
‘Bubba J’ (nappy brand) was named by the original nappy designer after her baby boy Jack.
‘ecoBumba’ (nappy brand) is a combination of eco (environmental awareness) and ‘La Bamba’ (latin dance song). It depicts having style in cloth nappies, while being ecofriendly. Babies often have a cute little waddle that makes cloth look very cute on their bottoms, hence the dance connection 😉

Marnie from Noonee Wilga:

Noonee Wilga is made of two aboriginal words. Noonee is the name of a young girl from a legend that my great great grandfather was told by the people of the area he lived in the early 1800’s. Read the full story on the About Us page on my website. Wilga is the name of an elegant tree that I love that grows in western NSW.

Misty from Fluffybuns:

‘Fluffybuns’ represents the fluffy goodness that covers those gorgeous little baby buns..

Nyssa from Snow Pea:

My shop was originally called Snow Pea Nappies, because that’s what I have called my son since the day he was born, however after 6 months of trading under that name an overseas seller with a similar name started marketing her nappies in Australia and I decided on a name change to avoid confusion with her nappies. I decided on Snow Pea because I wanted the name to be similar, and it seemed appropriate because I live in the Snowy Mountains.

Louise from Nip Naps:

The original name I came up with for my business was “Nipper Nappies”. Eventually this got shortened to “Nip Naps” because it just sounded catchier! We were one of the first businesses to import a major overseas brand of Modern Cloth Nappies and I wanted the business name to sound uniquely Australian, hence the “Nipper” part. Our original catch phrase was “Get your Nipper into our Nappies”. There you go …

Michelle from Cloth ‘n’ Craft:

I wanted to be able to see both Cloth Nappies as well as other craft related items made by myself and others – thus Cloth ‘n’ Craft was born!

Laura from the Cloth Nappy Co:

My shop is called Cloth Nappy Co. I wanted something easy to remember and valid to the products I was selling.
