Hello everyone~
Recently, I decided that I want to start producing my own online magazine focused only on Japanese culture. It'll be quite a girly 'kawaii'-ish thing, focused on fashion and music mainly...

I know what I want to feature, I even have interviews lined up...
The only problem is, I can't think of a name for it T-T

If anyone has any name ideas that are relevant to the magazine and they want to share them... I'm in serious need of help xD

Since the magazine is girly cute, these names are more direct it includes the overall topic of the magazine itself.

Kawaii Culture

C.C~ (standing for Cute Culture and the tilde, namidashu, wave line, etc. is part of the title)

A Girl's Cuteness


A.G.C (Abbreviated version of what's above)

Due to the type of content that the magazine is going to be about. The titles below uses elements of the content within itself. Since the content is girly cute fashion and music. The elements I personally think is girly cute along with involving fashion and music is the Lolita fashion and a lot of popular idol groups/artists. (Pop=popular, which is I believe what J-pop means, Popular Japanese music.)

Lolita Pop Magazine?

LoliPop <--- Loli=Lolita, Pop=J-pop

Shoujo <---young girl

Kawaii no Shoujo <--- Girl of cute


Titles below is everything above but instead of the titles being in English or Romanized Japanese, it's in Japanese itself.

少女 <---Young Woman (In my opinion Shoujo has more than one meaning, Little girl, little woman, young girl and young woman. For this one the Young Woman I think can be used to refer to the demographics that you are aiming towards for the magazine. Maybe it'll be helpful)

かわいいの少女 <--Young woman of cute

===========================================
Trying to use spoilers to make everything a bit less intimidating and easier to swallow~

Wau~ That's a lotta text haha, but thank-you it's something to think about. In terms of answering those questions, I'll respond with the corresponding numbers you gave...

1. The focus of my magazine is to give information about the latest 'cutesy' trends in Japan for those who are fans of the styles but are not Japanese and so have no direct way to follow he styles, I want to do this in as much of a fun way as possible. Of course, I don't want the entire magazine to be about one thing, so I'll be including a monthly J-Pop/idol music chart, just to mix it up a bit.

2. In terms of content, I'll be including:
Music-wise - J-pop (male and female) along with female idol groups such as AKB48. Kyarypamyupamyu will also have a large focus in the magazine as I find her to be quite influential not only in terms of music but also with her fashion pioneering as well.

3. Fashion-wise - Gyaru, Sweet Lolita, 'creepy kawaii', Decora and Fairy-kei.
With these fashion styles, I plan to show how the styles have evolved, as well as promoting re-using looks from the past, for example, in Sweet Lolita, 'Angelic Pretty's 'Sugary Carnival' print was once super popular but now it's rarely used, it'd be nice to see it make comeback.

4.My goal is to help fans of certain Japanese styles/music as listed above to be able to follow trends and new releases, as well as giving tutorials, interviews, etc.

5. Pastel colours are my colour theme, as they relate to the styles featured in my magazine.

6. I think my audience is definitely teens and older teens, not that I'd have a problem with people outside of those ranges reading the magazine of course.

Again, thank you for taking the time to type all of that ~

And thank you for reading~ I got more ideas.

Bloody Candy <---Sweet Lolita, Decora, Fairy Kei makes me think of sugar hence the candy. The 'creepy kawaii' makes me think of Bloody Mary both the ghost and the beverage hence the bloody.
When I see this title I think of a logo that consists of a pastel colored (at least 2 different colors, like a light pink for the tomato and a light blue for the leaves) sugared tomato candy (that's pretty much a gumdrop in the same of a tomato). The tomato has a cute looking face with clips at the top of it's "head" and clipping parts of it's "hair" (the leaves) this pretty much stands for the decora I think. With elements of Fairy-kei being in the background of the gumdrop tomato character. Or just mix all what I said above up.

Concept art:
 
^ Yes I drew this. I don't really know a whole lot about decora or fairy-kei fashion. I'm more of a gyaru, classic and casual lolita kind of person. Which is why I didn't purposefully try to add any clips for decora or anything Fairy-keiish. [Though I have a feeling the colors of the tomatoes (that I didn't even bother to try look like gumdrops or shadowing, etc.) are Fairy-keiish...]

Ai Candy <-- Love candy. I don't know why but especially decora and fairy kei make me think of candy. This title is a bit punny because it sounds like "Eye candy" me personally I find the Japanese fashion Decora, Sweet lolita and Fairy kei if done right like eye candy. A cute faced bleeding heart in pastel color (with the blood being a different color) that has a rose pattern similar to the ones that pops up in Liz Lisa products, photos, etc. with a candy shaped bow comes to my mind when I see this title.

The Liz Lisa rose pattern (it's in the background): http://alicechan9.weebly.com/uploads/1/2/8/3/12836565/5059644_orig.jpg


Sugar Latte <--- For some reason when I see Liz lisa clothes (brand clothes could be described as gyaru style inf my memory is correct) I think of coffee shops. The ones with the warm, light, relaxing atmosphere. Which explains the latte part of the title it also fits with the older teen audience I think. The sugar is for the younger audience plus what I said before fairy-kei and decora makes me think of candy.

Latte Parfait

Dolly or Dollie

Midnight Carnival <--I have a feeling this is a bit too dark though.

Candy Carmelvial <-- I know there's different ways to say carmel (I usually say: care mell) In this title it's prounounced CAR as in the vehicle car and mell. The "vial" is taken from the last parts of carnival. It's also punny.

Baby's Sweet Halloween

Baby's Sweet Ghost

Baby's Sweet Hospital <--- I'm thinking of a cute but scary hospital with candies all over it.

Baby's Sweet Ghost Hospital <---

Lacey Hospital <---Lace is girly, hospital is from creepy kawaii. I see this and think of Guro Lolita. (Then I think of Kyary Pamyu pamyu no offense but her videos go from cute to borderline creepy. Or her pictures are cute yet a bit creepy.
Like this picture: http://www.kawaiistudyjapan.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/kyary-pamyu-pamyu-cherry-bon-bon.jpg
Or those eyeballs in "Pon pon pon", the moon with the mouth at the beginning of "Fashion Monster", (or the entire video of fashion monster)
Apparently even said so herself she does this. "I love grotesque things. My concept is scary things that become traumatic with their cuteness. There are so many 'just cute' things in the world, so I add grotesque, scary and even shocking materials like eyeballs and brains to balance out the cuteness." Kyary Pamyu Pamyu; interview with The Fader

Ah, thank-you so much for coming up with so many ideas~!
