Do you have kids? If so, when they were born, did you go online and ask a bunch of strangers for ideas on what to name them? My point is, a business name is special, just as important as your kids names. It's the first thing a potential customer is going to see about you.
You know yourself better than anyone here. Is your last name a nice sounding last name, easy enough to spell? If so, that may be an idea for you to include your name in the business name.
Or you might use your location in the name. Ex: we're from Pennsylvania which is called the Keystone State. There are businesses called Keystone Lawn Care, Keystone Bakery, Keystone Car Clean. You get the picture. So location is something you could think about including.
Bottom line is: you want something that the customer can remember AND spell.

Call your local county clerk and ask her how to search online for DBAs.....That will push you in the right direction...Or you could try the old fashioned way and open up a phone book and get ideas from that....just my .02

There's a lawn care company around here that's called "Lawn Enforcement". The trucks are painted like cop cars, no lights and sirens though (don't know if that's legal). Very unique.
