When we were brainstorming a name for our company, we were initially only coming up with really dorky things. It took us a considerable amount of time to get anywhere. One day we were going down the rabbit hole of wedding related phrases when we thought of "something borrowed, something blue." We tried researching the origin, related prose, and phrased it in every way we could think of. Finally we looked at the word blue in different languages that were relevant to us. We decided to go with the Welsh word for blue-- glas (pronounced gloss)-- for a few reasons. #1. We have quite a bit of Welsh ancestry, #2. we can pronounce it without a hokey accent, and #3. because we could experiment with some nice word play. Then, when we were searching for domains and available handles on social media platforms, we expanded it to House of Glas. We thought it was clever…and the handle was available.
