Naming ideas for luxury goods
Naming luxury goods is not an easy task. The basic naming principles are similar with the product naming steps. Still, we must take into consideration some differences and specifications in order to find the most suitable name for a luxury good.
- The most important is the collection name. The specific product name count, but less than the collection name
