Not that anyone really cares: I have decided I don't care that there is a Blue Lion Salon already, I am staying with the Blue Lion Brewing name, not switching to Lion Star (sounds too much like Lone Star, which was kind of the idea admittedly).
EDIT: Oh and the story.
My mother is 100% Bavarian, my father about 25% (both are born in Germany, so are my siblings). My first memories are from living in Munich and most of my family lives in Bavaria. So the lion is the traditional symbol of Bavaria (have a large tattoo of the lion on my calf) and blue is the traditional color.
I didn't want it to be too obvious that I was referring to Bavaria, so Blue Lion had a nice ring to it. If I ever learn how to use image creation software or maybe find someone who does, I want the emblem to be the Bavarian lion in blue over the Texas star with the branches on the bottom and side.
Incidentally that image of the lion is the same one as the tattoo I have but mine is in black with a light (Bavarian flag) blue eye.
