    vanity

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to find a brand name for handmade and personalized italian fashion products that will be (initially) sell only inside USA.
    Every item is unique and made on customer specification, so I think could be a sort of pride, a boast for the owner have their personalid product marked Made in Italy and made only for he/she.
    For this reason I like something like 'vanitaly' (a mixed word between Vanity plus Italy)

    Do you think could be a winning name or can be misunderstand or have a bad connotation in english, meaning..
    italian trucks (van + italy) ?

    Vanity also don't have a good meaning:
    1: something that is vain, empty, or valueless
    2: the quality or fact of being vain
    3: inflated pride in oneself or one's appearance : conceit
    4: a fashionable trifle or knickknack

    Thanks

    Re: vanity

    I don't go much on 'Vanitaly' for the reasons you mentioned.

    How about 'Specitaly' (special/speciality + Italy) or Unitaly (Unique/One + Italy)

    Just a couple of thoughts, I'm sure others can think of more :o)

    "Personitaly." Combines "personalized" and "Italy," while evoking "personality."
