About that Name

Where on earth did the name Mozaique come from?

It’s a long and rather boring story. So by all means stop reading now if you have something better to do.

Many moons ago, I (Jayne) was looking for a name for my coaching and hypnotherapy practice. I liked the idea of a mosaic as it represented the idea of lots of small parts being put together to make a whole picture that was collectively more beautiful than the sum of its parts.  I found out shortly afterwards that there was a local business called Mosaic (now sadly no longer), totally unrelated to my field, but enough to make me want to differentiate. So I opted for the French spelling, which also added a bit of ‘je ne sais quoi‘, being just a little out of the ordinary. After buying the domain, I never actually got around to using the name Mozaique for the business, but ended up trading under my own name. Mozaique.co.uk sat unused for a few years, then eventually David and I rationalised all the domains we’d accumulated over the years (surprising how they mount up). At the same time, we were looking for a trading style for the property business. I thought about Mozaique and considered that the principle behind the original idea held for the property business too. We started using it for email quite a while ago then umpteen years later, I got around to setting up a site.

So there you are.
