How to find the perfect boutique name for your new home
Posted On June 19, 2021
“It was just such a simple idea.
In a city of over 2 million people, boutique owners have a number of options for their nameplates. “
We knew we wanted to build a boutique and we didn’t have any money but we knew we had to do something to bring the boutique to life.”
In a city of over 2 million people, boutique owners have a number of options for their nameplates.
Some are more obvious than others, however.
The owner of the local boutique that opened in 2016 in downtown Nashville, Tiffany, is a real estate broker and has developed a list of her favorites.
“I know there’s one in Atlanta called the Tiffany and the Dixie Suite,” Tiffany said.
“It’s one of the oldest hotels in the world and the owners have been here for more than 80 years.
It’s one you’re going to be able to enjoy for years to come.”
The boutique’s name, however, has been a hot topic of discussion.
“The Tiffany and Dixie suite is an old hotel in the Atlanta metro area,” Tiffany says.
“This boutique name has been popping up everywhere.”
Tiffany is one of many Nashville residents who believe the name is too “pristine.”
“I think it’s one that we’ve just come up with that’s not the perfect moniker,” Tiffany adds.
“You’re going with a nice little word, but the name doesn’t feel very Nashville-y.”
When asked how she felt about her name being so controversial, Tiffany says, “I’m not so sure I’ve seen anyone else get as much backlash as I have.”
Tiffany’s first idea was to make the name “the Tiffany and Tiffany Suite” but the hotel’s owners said they wanted something more “modern” and “unique.”
“It turns out we wanted something that would be unique and not be a name you were going to go out of your way to look at and associate with,” Tiffany explains.
“So we went back and got some names from the past and tried to go for something that’s going to have the same kind of feel and feel that we want for this boutique.”
Tiffany, a realtor by trade, decided to give the boutique name a modern twist.
“What I liked about Tiffany is that she was the real estate agent, she had to know what she was doing and that’s the key to success in the realty business,” Tiffany explained.
“That’s why she’s so well-respected.”
The name Tiffany and dixie suite has already been picked up by several local publications.
“When we started talking about it, we thought, ‘Oh my gosh, this is so fun,'” Tiffany said of the name.
“If we did it with a little twist, we’d be doing a lot of people a favor.”
Tiffany says she doesn’t think the name Tiffany is too well-known.
“People don’t know that we live downtown in Nashville, and I don’t think it’ll last for long,” Tiffany continued.
“They don’t care about it in a real way.
I think people just don’t want to see a name like that.”
Tiffany has already made a few friends and she has plenty of suggestions for others.
“Our community has always been so supportive of what we’re doing and we love our community,” Tiffany concludes.
“And we’re trying to make this a boutique that is going to continue to support our community and be a place for people to come and enjoy.”
The owner says she’s looking forward to seeing the name on the door of the boutique.
“There are a lot more things to come with the name,” Tiffany tells CBC News.
“With our current location, it’s not going to last forever.”
