We are Buffett parrotheads, we are sailing soles, we are island junkies, we are frozen drink crazies, we are limin’ lizards. You wrap all that together into one big burrito and what do you get?

That’s what I’m trying to figure out.

You guys, the people who read RumShopRyan and are fans on our island vibe facebook page are crazy about everything I mentioned above but we really don’t have a catchy name. So let’s come up with one.

I’ve been thinking about getting some cool gear made up for you guys. Things like wrist bands, hats and what not. Nothing crazy but something for you to look at and remind yourself of the island way of life.  I have some names, but not really thrilled with too many of them.  So I thought why not ask you guys, the coolest bunch out there! You guys are creative and with a couple boat drinks in your system I’m sure the names will be flowing like the rum.

Here’s what I came up with so far.

RumShopRyan and the…

  • RumRunners
  • Beach Bums
  • Beach Nuts
  • Rum Bums
  • Pirate Army
  • Coconut Army
  • Sand People
  • Sand Squad
  • Tiki Tribe
  • Coconut Army
  • Coastal Club
  • Coastal Crew
  • Coconut Crew
  • Flip Floppers
  • Coconut Army
  • Salt Nuts
  • Sand Lizards

Like I said I really don’t like many of these. Please Help! I’ll send the person with the best name a island koozie. The winning name will used everywhere, so you will actually become famous! Well, at least very cool in small groups.

Thank you guys!

    Dawn, NWTG?

  11. RumShopRyan June 24, 2010 at 10:10 am

    I know. My grammar and spelling is terrible, but I love to write. Go figure.

  12. Dawn June 24, 2010 at 10:42 am

    No Where to Go/No Where to Be… I was brain storming

    I love to write too! Am I very curious and interested in how someone gets started on a page/blog, like you have here with RumShopRryan. Like how you get sponors/advertiseres, etc.

    No, it’s not your grammar and spelling, it’s just proofing – missing words or not using the correct context, that sort of thing…I’m a second set of eyes, so I picked up on it. Believe me, I’m not without errors in my writings!

  13. Kristin June 24, 2010 at 11:20 am

    Idk, but how about ……. Rummies, Rum Booties, Cocobuddies ? I like your Coconut Army.

    RumShopRyan June 25, 2010 at 9:22 am

    Thanks for all the great suggestions guys! I’m overwhelmed! I’ll try and pick out the best name this weekend. Cheers!

    If you still have some ideas let them fly!

  25. Lena June 25, 2010 at 11:34 am

    Ryan I think I searched Coral Reefers or perhaps I went to Jimmy Buffett to double check the name of his band, believe it took me to Wikipidea or his own website, I did look at different websites. Coral Reefers was his band and according to that site still is but they changed the name a little for someone, then changed it back. Besides Coral Reefers I also like the name Landsharks but guess there are copyright issues with those two. I had another idea yesterday but can’t remember it now…it was suggested that I write it down but I didn’t. oh well good luck with choosing a suitable name. My sister and family are in the Pensacola Margaritaville area & celebrating this weekend, should be a lot of fun for everyone else the following weekend as well. have fun everyone!

  26. Lena June 25, 2010 at 11:37 am
  27. Lena June 25, 2010 at 11:39 am

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jimmy_Buffett has more complete information. I learned a lot there. 😀

  28. Lena June 25, 2010 at 11:42 am
