Folks,

I'd appreciate any suggestions for a name to a new IT company.

Its going to deal with small - medium businesses, and yes I already have they clients - just need to setup a new company with a cool name so it is official, rather than the contract work I currently do.

cheers,
AS

What does your company specialise in? What do you want the company name to resemble or symbolise?

Is it a trading name, or will you be using this as the name you will register your company with?

@RS : I'd like to register the "name" as the company name with the companies office...e.g. The IT Company Ltd.

@Shaun : The idea is to represent something dynamic, and reliable. It is going to mainly deal with network / server management for small - medium businesses, and also solutions e.g. CRM / VOIP.

haha i love the puns, along the lines of" schindlers lifts", they really do stick in the mind

you could also have "PC plod", with a picture of a computer with a old style police helmet on its cartoonish head

or just plain descriptive like "webserve"




this is where a signature goes

kiwitrc: Newit


The moment I saw that, I actually thought of New Era IT (already a company), so maybe not that one.




This is a signature.

@Regs: I like IT!
@Arrona : Ditto
@Rvangelder : mmmeh... :)
@Kiwirtc : Genuit is pretty cool...
@NPM : Keeping IT real sounds good...but IMHO, sounds a bit "slangy" - hard to explain what I mean there...

but that's awesome feedback..and I'm still thinking!
