Terrible name for a necklace?

Quiet day, worked on filling an Etsy order, (can you believe I sold another "Even Monkeys Fall From Trees Necklace then experimented with new backgrounds and tried to update some of the current pics on Etsy that didn't thrill me.

I also finished and added another piece to my Words of Wisdom collection. Giving Birth to a Baby is Easier than Worrying About It. It is a Japanese proverb - "Anzuru yori umu ga yasashi," the literal translation (I think) is "Giving birth to a baby is easier than worrying about it, " however, I'm not sure that I like the name. It's meaning - Fear is greater than the danger...An attempt is sometimes easier than expected.

Perhaps I should attempt another name for this necklace...maybe "An Attempt is Sometimes Easier Than Expected."
