Need a Name!

Next week I am opening an Atelier. Downtown in the community creative center. I had planned on the name Atelier Rough Paint. My paintings, and my personality, are a little rough and complicated, so I thought this would fit. And the name isn't totally taken on the net, as opposed to Wet Paint, Wet Canvas (obviously)....

My problem? Danish people are good with english, but the word Rough is probably too complicated for many danes. It has an odd spelling, for a non-english speaker, so they may not know how to pronounce it. I would like an english name. Nothing generic like Atelier A. Not my name. Suggestions?

Re: Need a Name!

Greg's suggestion reminded me of a short-lived cafe we loved: Cafe Noname, easy to pronouce, sounded latino until you got the joke.

While you like 'rough', if it is not easy for Dane's to say or to pronounce that might make it harder for people to find you, talk about you. What about a synonym for rough: wild, hasty, crude, primitive, etc.... some word that describes what rough means to you but is easier to pronounce.

Re: Need a Name!

I went to thesaurus.com, and looked up "texture." Some possibilities?

texture, coarseness, feel, feeling, grain, nap, surface, touch, tooth

Maybe playing around with variations of these words or others will lead you to a combination that will work for you?

And maybe combining English and Danish words would be interesting?

Maybe Atelier tekstur?

Wishing you good luck,
Karen
