Toque new range - is Simpson's a good English name?

We quite like Simpson's but before we go to print I thought I would ask you guys for your opinions.

Or any other names you think might be classically English?

  • In America this may bring OJ's names to some peoples' minds, not a good association. Just a thought.

    It makes me think of Homer, Bart, Lisa and Marge.
  • miamimarkmiamimark Moderator
    Lol... I'm thinking Bond (James) then Hill (Benny) BONDHILL!  That sounds very English to me! :-)
  • Winslow perhaps? You could also go historical with Raleigh or Drake. I agree with @miamimark about Simpson carrying cartoon connotations on the American side, at least.
  • Glad I did this, good points. Thanks

    Sinclair's or maybe Niven's.
  • bobbob Member
    Yeah Simpson's doesn't hit me as particularly English.

    Another nay for Simpsons here, reminds me of Homer et al too.

    I like the sound of Barrington's. Or maybe Harrington's.

    Harrington's Olde English Snuff is something I'd definitely buy

    Also like the suggestion from @snuffyjon of Niven's
  • I think Lawrie's is better than Simpson's

    B-)
  • Great name @tobaccobob!

    If it's donut-scented, go with Simpsons.

  • ar47ar47 Member
    I'd appreciate resurrecting something historic. Where's @ArtChoo ?
  • Just call it Rodericks you know we will like it

  • +1 for boaty Mcboatface
  • Charlotte's, after King George III's Queen, who was famed for her passion for snuff. So much so that her nickname was Snuffy Charlotte.
  • bobbob Member
    of course another Bob would come up with the best name for it. I am wondering why I didn't think of it now. 
  • Monty Python

    its pure English

    Or a Python-inspired name? How about Gumby's, Walrustitty's, or Tarquin Fin-tim-lin-bin-whin-bim-lim-bus-stop-F'tang-F'tang-Ole-Biscuitbarrel's? The general's about to stop this silly post- gotta go
  • bobbob Member

    if going for python I'd say name it wink wink nudge nudge

    I think of the American  Mrs.Simpson and The King when I hear the name Simpson. Not very English to me.



    Look no further than our own Charles Dickens.   He was himself a well known snuff taker.

    Charles Dickens gave us hundreds of memorable names.


    Pickwick
    Sairey Gamp     (a well noted snuff taker.)
    Snagsby
    Bumble
    Gradgrind
    Flintwinch
    Micawber
    Magwitch
    Dodger
    Montague Tigg
    Jarley
    Grimwig
    Nadgett
    Smallweed.
    Swiveller
    Sally Brass    (She had a large wooden box of snuff on her desk of which she partook frequently.)

    The list goes on, and on.



    Micawber is probably one of the best known Dickens Characters, and anyone who has seen  the W.C.Fields brilliant performance on screen cannot forget the name.


    If you click on my picture you will see  Mr.Sowerberry, the undertaker from Oliver Twist.  Note the open coffin shaped snuff box on his hand, and the coffins behind him.



    DICKENS or MICAWBER   would be my choice.



    @ar47  thank you for remembering me.

    I shall have a trawl through some snuff history and see what is appropriate.    

    Cheers.

  • Nelson's.
  • @snuffyjon  Nelson used to be a cigarette brand in the UK,  not sure if they are still made. Could be a copyright problem there.     Nice idea though.


  • Isn't there already a Simpsons in Mann? The shaving brush people?

    I have a Vulfix shaving brush.  Simpsons and Vulfix are the same people. 

    Looks like Simpsons have been naughty boys, and labelled Manx made brushes as Made in England.

    I found this whilst looking for Vulvux.

    This is the link for the above post about shaving brushes.

    For some reason the address will not copy in edit.
