    Default help me choose a business name

    I've emailed my friends and asked which they prefer and I'm getting votes for each. I still can't decide. I'm ready to buy a domain name for a website and I need to figure it out. Which one do you like the best?

    www.krissyalloriphotography.com - is it too long? having my first and last name keeps it personal which is probably good for portrait photography. there's a good chance people will mess up the spelling if you tell them my website because there's so many variations of krissy but most people email links anyway.

    -or-

    www.alloriphoto.com - its shorter and maybe a little more professional sounding. eliminates any possibility of gender bias if someone stumbles upon my website - they'll see my pictures before they know i'm a woman. also, if this actually takes off and i do something like shoot weddings in the future, if my husband is a second shooter or a videographer than the business name holds for both of us.

    what do you think?

    I was thinking whole name if you want to market toward children's portraiture but if you want the option to expand and include you husband then I would go to alloriphotography. I think the spelling thing is just as likely to be a problem with just allori as it is with krissy. If I just heard either, I could spell them all kinds of ways.

    Ditto. Remember too, if you use something other than your own name, you have to fill out more paperwork (dba - doing business as...)

    That said, I vote for alloriphotography
