    I am thinking about shortening my name from Grasshoppers Lawn & Yard Service LLC. to Grasshopper Lawns. Any opinion will be apreciated.

    I would do it. Your not really changing it just shorting it.

    I'm thinking about changing ours to a different name altogether, that's a bit nerve raking.

    I don't like having my name in the bus. name, I want something more generic. Idk maybe I should leave it like it is. :confused:

    If you are really established and people know that name well then I would not. With me everybody know grasshoppers but I am not completely changing it as you said I am just shortening it.

    The only important part people remember is grasshopper and that seven-digit number. I would go for it.

    It shouldn't pose any problems as all. Just make sure you change your contracts to include a DBA. The heading of the contract should have "this contract between "customer's name" and Grasshoppers Lawn & Yard Service LLC, D.B.A. Grasshopper Lawn....

    You may want to also legally get the DBA established.
