Should I Re-Name this Site?

When I first decided to start this site over 2 years ago now, I really struggled with what to name it. I knew I wanted it to be about Chihuahuas as I had recently rescued my Chi Kilo and had fallen in love with the breed.

Try as I might, I just couldn’t think of a good, catchy name. So just so I wasn’t wasting any more time trying to make a decision, I just called it  I Love My Chihuahua . Of course that domain was taken, so I settled for I wasn’t thrilled with the name, but it did describe pretty well what the site was about.

About a year after that, the name just hit me one day. it was Just Chis. I love it! It’s short, to the point and best of all, not every other Chihuahua site and Facebook page is named it.

Even after I came up with the name and bought the domain name, I didn’t do anything about switching over. Why? Because it will be such a hassle and frankly, I’m too lazy  busy to deal with it.

Besides, it would be a major re-brand. Would all the wonderful people who follow this site and the Facebook page hate the fact that it has a different name? Or would they be confused and think they came to the wrong site or page?

So I kept the domain name but did nothing with it.

Lately  though, I have again been thinking again about switching to the Just Chis name. Why? I’m glad you asked. Because lately, I am seeing so many other places with I Love My Chihuahua as their name. I counted no less 68 other Facebook fan pages and groups with that name. Only two others had the word Club at the end of that. I actually got tired of counting when I reached 68 and just gave up but I know there were more.

It’s hard to distinguish us from all the other I Love My Chihuahuas out there when we all have the same name. I have even been yelled at and cussed out because we were confused with one of the others and they had apparently done something to upset someone.

Sooooo, my question to you all is how would you feel about changing our name to Just Chis? Would it bother you? Do you like the idea? Do you not care one way or the other? Please leave a comment and let me know what you think about this.

I don't think people would think you were crackers for changing to Just Chis. But some people might be looking for Just Chis and Crackers.

This is a lovely site! I commend you for putting it out there for all of us chihuahua lovers to enjoy. I vote to change the name to Just Chis, simply because we certainly want our club to stand out, don't we?! Love the work you do to bring us this site every week, and I so love seeing all of the Chi pictures. I would love to send you a photo of my Sherlock, but I, alas, am too lazy to figure out how to send it. How's that for the epitome of laziness?!!!!

Many of us have changed our names more than once. So why wouldn't it be okay for you. I think Just Chis is very descriptive and I would continue to follow you. As it is I read your email every week and I still haven't even gotten my chi. Hopefully it will be soon.

How about “Lottsa Chis Please” ? You can call your news letter anything you wish, and all you followers will love it ! I’m sure.
