You might also want to consider having your attorney do a search to make sure no one else has the name, and for possible trade marking to keep someone else from taking it as well.

Two companies with the same name in similar fields is not a good thing.

One solution is to use or incorporate your name in it.

: OK, I need help! I am a weaver making my way into the craft business world. The problem is in the name. I made my first false step with Weaving Works! A false step because I soon discovered a Seattle business named The Weaving Works and because I have added hand dyed silks to my line.

: I am looking for a name I can live with for a long time. I had all but decided on "...Designs" and then I read John's image section. I feel braindead and get only blank stares from those I love. Ideas? Comments?
