Company Name Question

10 replies
I'm not quite sure where to post this, but this seemed like the best section.

For someone who is doing some offline work as well as a little bit of web dev. what is a good name for a company?

I want it to be my LASTNAME xxxx, LLC. OR something along those lines. What do you guys go with?

Examples: LASTNAME Web Management, LASTNAME Consulting, LASTNAME Marketing, LASTNAME Solutions, LASTNAME Services, etc.

EDIT: As Tim has pointed out- I'm definitely looking to keep this pretty general because I have a couple of different directions I am going, but all of these directions are considered marketing of course.

Thanks a lot,
Nick

    It sort of depends on where you think this is going. On one hand keep it very general. That way you can do a lot of things under the umbrella of that business. For example: Your last name Enterprises. If you know you are going to focus on something very specific then I'd go with that: You Last Name Software Development.

    You could set up something like LAST NAME Enterprises, LLC and have a DBA for your different businesses.

    How about combining your last name with direction of company,then squeeze it all in the abbreviation?
    for example: Darius + Web Studio = Darstud co. =)

    I setup a LTD company early last year, having a generalised name is better imo. This way you can put all of your projects under the one hood.
