Have you considered Count instead of Baron. Baron sounds stuffy and old while Count brings to mind daring and bold. Could a Baron Dracula really been as fearsome! Baron Chocula wouldn't sell as well either.


I don't like Count precisely because it conjures up images of Count Dracula. I've never been fond of vampires. Yuck! (Although if I were a woman, I might go for Countess because I think that has a nice ring to it. Especially the Italian version: "La Contessa".)

Nor do I want to be Lord, because the first thing that comes to mind is Little Lord Fauntleroy.

I've thought it over and Baron appears to be the right fit for me.
