Business names

I set myself up as a business this week – ABN and all that. I’m hoping to get all the things I currently do to pay me via the business.

I plan to have 4 income streams:

  • Technical writing (blogs or similar) supported by advertising
  • Web design and hosting (for local businesses)
  • Linux server build and support
  • Windows desktop support

I’m currently looking for a cool business name. If you have any suggestions, look them up and post them in comments.

If all else fails I might have to go with Andrew Wooldridge’s Web 2.0 Company Name Generator.

  1. To get it started, “Toad of Toad Hall Ministries” is available, as is “Bassline Solutions”, though people might think I’m a fishing shop if I go with that one.

  2. Apart from checking whether the business name is available, it’s obviously worth checking if a related domain name is free… both a .com.au or .net.au and a .com or .net.

    By the way, fragar.com.au and fragar.net.au are available, so is fragar.net.

    What about Beerlicious? (not particularly IT related)

  3. Hey Dave, Fragar Technologies is actually a business name already, up in QLD, but no longer active – maybe they incorporated or P/L or something under a different name. Also it would make it a bit harder to sell the business if it has my name on it, should things take off. In the interim, I can just trade under my own name until something strikes me.

    Simon, were you thinking beer.licio.us as a website?

  4. Are you really thinking about saleability if you but “beer” in the title of a software development outfit?
