The name ‘Retro Religion’ Is Just Different, How did It Come About?
Well when I was trying to find a name for my brand I wanted a name that would give people an idea of what my brand was all about just by the sound of it. The name I really wanted was Retrospective, that was the first name that came to my mind, I was so in love with it and had already started working on/with it but I found out much later that the name was already taken I was very sad so I started piecing names together again and settled for Retro Religion. Lol it wasn't an easy task.
