About Us & Price List

Carioca-Names - The root and origin of the word Carioca is interesting. When we were expecting our first Daughter Maxine, my wife came across the word Carioca which means an almond coated with chocolate and found it fascinating. Hence, the second name of our daughter is "Carioca". Today if you do a Google search, the English word 'carioca' has several meanings:
** music composed for dancing the carioca;
** a lively ballroom dance that resembles the samba;
** a native or inhabitant of Rio de Janeiro.
Names – Each individual person is a unique being, and the characteristics that you find, often fit the personality of that person. This amazing and astounding feature has always ensnared us.
What started as a hobby, is now a small home based business. From the Meaning of First Names on pre-printed backgrounds, clocks and Stein mugs, we gradually added Dog Breed Certificates, Poems and Scripture verses. With first hand knowledge in Desktop Publishing, we added a personalised touch, with the Meaning of First Names on Personalised backgrounds as well as personalised Dog Breed Certificates.
Besides working, diversifying ones home-business into other streams for a little added income is always satisfying. We have extended our range to include Silicone Bakeware products as well as Laptop Skins, which you can view on our Products page.

Thank you for your business.
Mark & Ingrid
