    Default thinking up a good name for your business

    Its quite a difficult task because every one I can come up with has already been done!

    Now I'm looking at old Greek names and animals.

    When you think about some of the names the 'big' companies use like ILM or Industrial Light and Magic you could be forgiven for thinking they were a builders suppliers who did children's parties at the weekend. Or what exactly is a Zoetrope, answers on a postcard please and the correct answer will receive a years supply of spam (the tinned variety, not annoying emails), apparently it goes with everything.

    Personally, I would just stick to English words unless your clients can understand Greek, they may not have a clue as to what you actually do. What about the area where you live, what is it called? Are you in America or the UK or Australia? Each of those countries has old historic place names, usually from some other language that has been converted to English.

    The Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band, now there's a name to get yourself noticed.

    what sort of videos (assuming it is a video business) are you working, or intending to work, on?

    Why not 'The Video camera dude'? Would probably go down well with the local music scene at least.
