I used to trade as EliServices, the Eli was picked as El is the first two letters of my oldest daughters name and Li is the first two of my youngest daughters name.

When I made my own little computer repair company between a friend and I, we were young and decided to name it "PC 3VOLUTION" but since then regret it because our customer base is 80% elderly people who don't understand why there is a 3. So for short we call it "PC EVO." Now that we're expanding into graphic design, website design and video game server hosting. We're thinking about changing the name to something more generic. but if I've learned something. Keep it simple such as "<Last name here> Solutions" or "<Where you live here> Computer Technologies"
Usually the smaller the population in the area you live the better off you are with a name like that. Bigger place for example "Liver Pool Computers" is a horrible name, 1. Liver should never be in a business name unless it's a butcher and 2 it's not really local when the population is a half a million people. A good example of this would be "Clovelly Computer Solutions".

I was gonna call mine Stuart Hawkins Information Technology, but thought better of it when I considered the initials painted up the side of a van.
When I used to do that sort of work I operated on a flat fee basis so the company was called FlatFeePC, basically I charged £30 callout which covered up to two hours work (I would be charging more like £40 or £50 nowadays). It worked out because some jobs took 15 minutes and some took 2 hours but my hourly rate worked out good enough.
