Naming NotesThis phage name came from an idea we both had as an Instagram caption. My post @muva.pdf was captioned 'concrete' and my best friend's caption @liana.m2 was 'concrete pt2.' It was a random word that came to our heads when we were thinking of an idea. After we made this post our lives changed. Many people began approaching us about photography , and companies began reaching out. We did not expect all of the good feedback
