When I have less to think about than usual I have entertained myself by making a list of names that I think would look good on a business card. The only rule I give myself is that the names have to be real people, not made-up names like Sandy Beach or Blue Skye. Here is one of my current top ten.
My choices are all a little off-beat. But I think each looks striking in print and pleasantly rolls off of the tongue when said out loud. In my opinion, there are some names — for instance, Newt Gingrich, Zazu Pitts, Ray Kroc, Clyde Barrow or Wallace Beery that have no business on a business card.
Which is likely to be the reason texting and tweeting has gathered such steam.
