Well as you guys know i have thought of changing the biz name. Kinda looking for more professional. My last name is kinda hard to pronounce ( you should see the junk mail I get ) and thought of a few examples.

Note: to all the newbies.....please don't take my suggestions and use them till I decide. Once I have decided the names are fair game and I will post the ones I didn't use if I make the change. Thanks!

All I'm gonna suggest is stay away from using 911...it conjures up a horrible memory.

Turf Appeal out of the 5. But, I wouldn't limit my choice to just the ones listed though IMO.

No I am not going to do that..but the poll wouldn't take more than 5. This is a big decision I know..........

Turf Appeal got my vote.


Well you know my company name now........but.........can you pronounce my last name and could you remember it? That is the question.

I kinda like my logo (see avatar) and think it looks pretty professional but I think I could really grow the business with a catchier name.

After 6 years in business this is a HUGE decision so I am looking for all feedback that I can get!

Hmmm....never thought of that. Got that nickname from a motorcycle group I used to ride with ( Southern Cruisers ).

You might have something here.............

I viewed and didn't vote because none were really catchy. You said it limited you to 5, did you have some additional choices? You want something people will remember a few hours after they see you going down the road, if you open a phone book there could easlliy be confussion since alot of other companies may also use similar terms so people may inadvertantly call a competitor.

I also like Merlin's Lawn Care with the wizard on your logo. That will be real catchy. I'm a firefighter in Jacksonville. There are a lot of Privette's in Swansboro. Probably a derivative from your name or yours from theirs.

Make sure you know how to spell magical - it's not "maigcal" like you have it. I'd also say try to keep away from the christmas colors - just looks kinda weird.

Do you take credit cards? How did you get that set up?
