After launching the website, Vedam Herbals, a friend of mine pounted out to me that another brand with a similar name exists. It’s called Vedame Herbals. Although the name is not the same, the products are similar, and that could create confusions in the minds of customers. I did not come accross this business earlier. When verifying the existance of business with similar names, I only searched for “Vedam Herbals” on google. My friend searched for “Vedamherbals” and found this business.
Needless to say, I changed the name of the business as it was still in it’s early stages, and I could do it without any problem, apart from losing some money on the domain name.
I spent a couple of days thinking about the name, and came up with Sarva Vedam. Sarva is one of the names of Lord Shiva, a Hindu deity. He is associated with Yoga and Ayurveda, so I thought using his name would be appropriate. Sarva also means all or everything, I thought goes well with Vedam, which means knowledge.
Now I only have to port my website to the new domain that I’ve purchased.
