I am starting my own computer repair business and trying to come up with my companies name. The more I read the more I realize the importance of a good name. One that is catchy, not cliche, simple, has my companies theme linked to it etc... I am wanting the name to be the same as my website address. It seems like lots of the good names and one's I think of are taken. I am originally from Australia and am now living in Massachusetts. I was going to use pcmaestro, but the .com domain is already used. Some names I have thought of that are not taken are as follows:

pcozgeek.com, pchoudini.com, techiedr.com, pccureit.com,

Is it important to have PC in the name or should I go for something a little different. How does it work when people are doing a google search to come up with Computer Repair Companies in m area. Any feedback/suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Just a small input,

My two local shops are called PC3000 & pctechcomputers.com

From these it would seem that having PC in the title is a good thing and i think having Tech in or something similar helps towards telling people what your shop is.

Word of mouth is your best advertising, grab a catch name like computermaestro or even thecomputermaestro

http://www.whois.net/dnr/index.php?d=theco...tro&tld=com

Don't expect a lot of google hits

Your work will be your name
Chewy

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Having PC or Computer is a good thing always. I liked PC Maestro, or Computer Maestro.
Who said I couldn't have everything?

Guys,

Thanks so much for all of the great tips on names and starting a computer repair business. I really liked PC Maestro as well and am disappointed it's taken. Is it a must to go with .com on the end of my website. pcmaestro.us is available. Thoughts.

I think your heritage is unimportant, in this instance.
Has to be a simple name, easy to remember.
Has to state exactly, what you do.
Best to start with a letter, as close to the start of the Alphabet as possible,for a number of reasons.
I had a Carpet Cleaning Company,which I called "Dry Quick Carpet Cleaning" which customers could remember easily.
