Default Help with brewery name

I have been trying to come up with a brewery name for a while now and I think I have it. I'm looking for opinions and also to see if anyone knows if it's been used before. I'm thinking of Celtic House Brewery and I used the seal generator to make this seal:


I also made one with some text over the mug just for interest.


What do you guys think?

Just to clarify, I have no intention to sell my brew, but I'd like a name to put on labels when I give it away. I'm also open to suggestions.

I like Celtic Cross Brewery. Lots of options for logos and labels.

I think you should call it "no Name brewery"

I think you should name it Grand Lord Phillip of Clinton's Brewery and send me samples of all brews!

Or perhaps you could keep the current setup and remove the mug and lettering from the center of the shield and replace it with a Celtic design.

Schlante,
Phillip

One thing that you may consider is that if you do American or other nationality style beers, it may get a bit awkward. Of course I'm mildly obsessed with continuity though.

Thanks guys for the suggestions. I like the Celtic Cross Brewery idea but after rh348877's post, I looked and found that there's also a Celtic Cross Pub in New Brunswick Canada. No Name sounds just like something I would use.

After messing around some more last night, I did come up with Morgan House Brewery, to take the unoriginal, based-on-my-name version. I needed a label for a mead that my wife was giving away today so I made something that would work. I made a very similar seal to that one and stuck it on the bottle.

Any other suggestions or comments?

How about Morgan Crest Brewery? Then you can use your family's crest as the label.
