    Recording studio names

    OK, this is a bit of a random one. My boyfriend is setting up his own recording studio, but doesn't have a name for it yet. Can any of you think of anything suitable that hasn't already been pilfered by other, bigger companies? We liked Gemini Studios (as he is, incidentally, a Gemini) but there are already a couple of those around

    A few pointers:

    1/ He doesn't want to be too genre-specific...ie nothing that refers to just one kind of music.
    2/ His initials are AMS so anything that incoporates that could be good...
    3/ His mates have a studio called Offshore which we both think is quite cool, so perhaps a non-music-related-but-still-cool-random-word name?
    4/ The studio is built in a converted garage, in South Wales (near Cardiff)
    5/ He is a drummer so perhaps something drum-related...? (But like I said, without being too genre-specific).

    It's a tough one! Any suggestions gratefully received, I will ensure that if any of them get picked a suitable prize will be issued

    Will he be letting other artists use it or is it for him self?

    Oh, there is already dozens of Gemini Studios

    I'd go with something slightly odd, like say Penguin Studios, or just Hippo.
    My great uncle died while trying to put the ancient Chinese board game he had just bought and had been saving up for on a set of scales, still its the go he would have wanted to weigh.

    It's for other artists to use, he's hoping to be able to expand it in the future and turn it into a proper business venture, at the moment he is mainly recording his mates' bands.

    I like Hungry Frog a lot...I think going with something odd is quite a good idea actually, we'll have to have a proper think...think we're going to open the dictionary at random pages and see what pops up (sounds like a fun night in eh?)

    Thanks guys, keep 'em coming!

    I still think Hippo is the best suggestion yet. Oh and my fee will be 10% of all future net income.
