What’s in a Name?

I have created a new jewelry design that can be worn as either a necklace or converted to a bracelet by removing the chain. I love the look and the idea of my new pieces, but can’t decide on what to call them. My husband and mother have been hard at work helping me think of names. So far, my best idea is “ShapeShifters”, my Mom’s best is “Chameleons”, and my husband is completely stuck on calling them “Neckbraces” (he is very amused with the idea, and thinks it will get attention due to curiosity.)
I need your help! Please leave a comment weighing in on the name issue—feel free to propose something new or to lend your support to an existing option!

How about Mystique? (if you watch XMEN, Mystique is the lady that changed all the time. :) Just an idea. he he he

Your husband has a great sense of humor :-) Chameleon makes me think of color change, not shape change, though, so shape shifters would be my vote. It's a lovely piece, too!

My vote goes to shape shifters. It makes them sound really interesting, in a magical kind of way :) I think the name would get some attention.

I like shapeshifter or, as an alternative, "Changeling". They are really great, by the way.

Thanks so much for the great feedback everyone!

I love the ideas so far and am leaning toward using ShapeShifters as the name for the line, while titling individual pieces with names including "Mystique" and "Changeling". I listed the pink set shown in this post as "Pink Mystique" :)
