Are you asking in English, or another specific language?
Or, are you wanting to have a name that translates well between many (all?) languages?Dominick_Korshanyenko

Here's some of my ideas in multiple languages:
Poppy Coffee (English)
Crepuscoli sui Mari (Italian)
I couldn't think of any other good ones in other languages. Poppy coffe is a little cheesy but I like it and Crepuscoli sui Mari translates to Twilights by the Seas.Anonymous

Any language would do.. But I think I prefer something oriental, the theme's going to be a little oriental. Or a little Greek.
Thanks Dom. What does Crepuscoli sui Mari means?
And oh Dom, finally got yourself a photo huh? :) nice one, looking good.Dominick_Korshanyenko

Thanks Ellem you too! :)
Crepuscoli sui Mari- Twilights by the Seas
And Oriental... the only Asian languages that I remember anything of is Thai, Lao, and Japanese.
Pat lae Gahee, Toh lae Manee- Thai and Lao
Yama Kawa Kohi- Japanese
*The only difference more or less between the Thai and the Lao is instead of Manee it would be Malee for Lao.
* The Thai/Lao translates to - To's and Manee's Food and Coffee
* The Japanese translates to - Mountains and Rivers, Coffee
* I wish I had the time to brush up on my Asian languages.

Here's a bit of trivia for you.
A little over ten+ years ago my brother, who lives in Seattle, Washington was approached by a friend of a friend who had a new marketing idea. My brother and his friend asked his friend's friend what he had in mind. His friend's friend said he wanted to market gourmet coffees. Both my brother and his friend said, "What? Just coffee??? It'll never fly." They both thought it was a dumb idea and declined to get involved.
Turns out it was the beginning of Starbucks.

As Phillipines was a Spanish colony, why not a Spanish name as "Café Filipino"? :) nena77
