    Hi you guys!
    My husband and I are retiring from our jobs of many years and want to start a lawncare business. WE both love being and working outside. I have read many of the threads and realized I really do need to ask you about the name I was considering. I saw on one post a name was called "immature". SO, not wanting to sound immature or unprofessional, I thought it best to ask you what you think of the name I came up with. ugh.......... Our last name is Bell. Wanting to have something catchy and memorable, I thought of..... "Ring My Bell LAwn Care". Then have a bell design in the logo. Well??? Cute or dumb dumb dumb???

    I think its catchy....not sure if your setting yourself up for a bunch of sexual inuendos???

    Our last name is Gunson......so our name is Son of a Gun

    I like your name......if you guys like it go with it.....just make sure you can build a marketing plan around it

    I agree to use that as a slogan and not a name. I would recommend simply Bell’s lawn care or something to the affect because your name starts with a b…..if you decided to advertise in the phone book your name would be close to the top because of alphabetical order.

    I like the slogan though

    Be careful how you include a bell image in your logo/name, you don't want anyone to glance at it and think you're with the phone company:)

    As for your name I agree with others that it sounds better as a logo than a company name.

    Or BELL, with Equipped Lawn Landscaping under it. Then draw the Bell around it.

    keep it simple. ring my bell as a sexual conotation to it, and is also confusing in general on what the business is
