    I'm trying to think of a name for my new Ltd company, so looking for inspiration - how did you guys come up with your names?
    looking on Companies house WebCheck, all the good names seem to be taken, not to mention domain names

    I never heard of The Dragons having a problem picking a company name and I am sure Bill Gates didn't have to ask anyone for the name of his empire.... Sometimes there are things you just have to do by yourself.

    My co. name was decided by coming up with two single words of how I would like to describe my company and what it does, make alist of all words that fit this description and join together to make a co. name, then take top 3 favourites and see what is available.

    Do what the injuns do and run outside and name it after the first thing you see. Works a treat..

    I concatenated the first parts of my kids names together and made a word out of them.

    Good job they're not called:

    Wayne and Kerstin though!

    Some great tips guys cheers!
    i have some ideas, but they all just sound a bit stupid..
    anyone else feel a little embarrassed when asked their company name? my last Ltd Company name was cool when i started it, but 6 years on after i'd grown up a bit and changed industry it was a bit embarrassing!
