    I agree, but online listings quite often do them in order. I have been in business 5 years and am not in the phone book. I just use them to start my fire place. Convenient fire starter just pull a few pages and light it up.

    I think both names are very long with the "Landscape Management" on the end. I also think that people might have trouble remembering either name.

    Shorter names or names that have become short through branding are easier to rememberÂ…

    Your last name is always the better choice. Unless it is something totally obscure, and I feel your last name is unique and will take hold. In time you and your family will enjoy the name recognition. You will never be sued for using a given name. Your birth certificate is your copyright that is difficult to challenge in court.

    I like the top right, but I've never been a fan of capitalizing all of one word, and then only the first letters of the other words. Just my opinion!

    Like others have said I would caution you against a family name as it depletes any brand recognition from being included in the sale price when you sell the business. I would recommend a read through the E-myth landscape contractor, it points out the normal life cycle of a business and the sole purpose of building to sell.
