Have some fun with the naming process while you’re at it. Create a play on words like I have done with E-Content Butler (this Butler helps people manage online content). Use alliteration (Butler’s Buttery Breads Bakery) or humor (Murphy’s Paw, from the people who also created Murphy’s Blawg). You can always go with the tried-and-true Yoursurname and Sons and Daughters, although this often leaves people wondering what you actually do for a living.
Here’s to your success in business.
