    Coming up with a company name - Any suggestions?

    Hi

    I often do little repair jobs or website jobs for staff at our school outside of my job role (and outside of school hours). I wanted to come up with a company name but struggling for one. Wondering if anyone had any suggestions?

    I want it to reflect making IT simple and easy for them. I basically do any IT jobs fixing, designing websites or stationary etc.

    Anyone any ideas? I have tried googling synonyms and came up with UbiquITy or Lucid IT. What do you think to them or any better ideas?

    Cheers

    Bear in mind that if you make this too formal you will have to think about public liability insurance and such like and you will possibly get noticed by HRMC. Lucid has already been used Lucid Technologies :: Home although they probably aren't as protective of their TM as Ronald McDonald.

    Bodge 'n' leggit solutions

    Only kidding, simple ict, something on that - it reads sort of likes simplicity too. Be careful with HMRC, going self-employed (NI contrib.) and the insurance front!

    Do a sir alan and use the initials from your name.

    Sometimes it does not sound very good depending it what your name is obviously.


    I always have thought about something like this but wondered if the main employer would have a problem with it.
