DP, a chef, is looking into opening a food business; and thinking about a gourmet food van selling hot and cold sandwiches etc. He has mooted the following as a potential name... 'In Bread'.

I think (hope!) he is joking as it's the worst name I've ever heard, but he thinks it's funny. WIBU to LTB if he ever actually did it?

Sounds good to me.

Short, memorable, funny. What's not to like?

TeWiSavesTheDay Fri 24-May-13 16:45:15

I quite like it!

Also 'bread with stuff in it'?

made me laugh - sorry!

I think it's funny

There used to be a snack bar round here called Sam Widges'

I think it closed down around 10yrs ago but I still remember the name because it made me smile.

A bit like the Opticians called Seymour Clearly.

I like in bread!

It's funny but a tiny bit wrong.

At least it would only make people look twice at the staff, rather than the food. I saw a catering company van the other day bearing the name 'Deja Vu'. Is the food leftovers from a previous buffet? Does it make a comeback after you've eaten it? confused

I think it's brilliant, I'd go with that name grin

It might depend where you live. And if DH is local.

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Fri 24-May-13 16:52:01

It depends. Does he look like he might be?

KnittedC Fri 24-May-13 16:52:38

Oh god IABU aren't I?! I thought people would be more shock about it but if you all think its funny then perhaps I can concede it is quite fun.

Thisisaeuphemism Fri 24-May-13 16:53:07

Oof, I'd expect the sandwiches to be a bit...funny..Like the royal family?

BadgersRetreat Fri 24-May-13 16:54:23

i think it's clever. Catchy and most importantly memorable.

LadyVoldemort Fri 24-May-13 16:54:53

YABveryU! People will remember a funny name, maybe even tell their friends and family.

It's wrong but funny smile

It's not particularly clever. Especially if he's thinking of going upmarket with "gourmet" food.
I wouldn't be offended, but I'd assume he was a bit of a dick, sorry.

I like it. My sympathies, though. My father spent most of my childhood threatening to call our house Dead Opposite. Local cemetery was over the road.

kelda Fri 24-May-13 16:59:21

It's funny but I don't think I would associate it with gourmet food.

googietheegg Fri 24-May-13 17:01:01

Fine if your business is a bit of a joke, like pissed bloke after pub food, but not for good stuff.

Lovecat Fri 24-May-13 17:01:22

Doesn't say gourmet to me. And although I might do a half-smile it would be one of those that becomes less funny the more I think of it.

Now if he called it The Hamwidge Van.... grin

Grammaticus Fri 24-May-13 17:02:07

No OP - you're quite right!

WorraLiberty Fri 24-May-13 17:03:39

To be fair I wouldn't associate any kind of van with gourmet food

But I still think it's a great name.

ItsallisnowaFeegle Fri 24-May-13 17:04:13

Made me giggle hides behind sofa

If you were in Scotland he could name it 'Piece Man' grin

CloudsAndTrees Fri 24-May-13 17:04:57

I like it. As long as the branding surrounding the name and the look of the van is good, then there's no reason it wouldn't work.
