    Alright, I am just begining my business and have started off just using my Last name as the name of my business. Right know I am called IKEN LAWN CARE. My wife and I have been talking about changine the name. We came up with IKEN MOW IT. My last name is pronounced "I Can". I kinda like it and I think it sounds good, but I figured I would ask you guys for you opinion. Thanks in advance.:cool:

    Sorry, but DEFinitely stay away from the "Iken Mow it" thing! It depends on what you want to be reflected as, a professional Grounds Maintenance Service? Or a "lawn mowing service". Because I know aLOT of those! I think I see one at about every intersection I drive through! Take your time at this, and come up with something catchy, clever, short, (that one's is my fallback right now) and easy to remember. I'm seriously considering a transition in names myself at this time as I'm diversifying into some other areas of the green industry. I pretty much have a name picked out, I just don't know if I want to have it as a seperate subsiary of my company, or just change the whole co. name over. I kind of hate to do this, because I've had this name for 17 years now, and have a great reputation and well known name around town. All I can tell you, is at this point, you DEFinitely don't want to go with "Ground Zero."

    Make the name something better, and you can use the "Ikan mow it" as a slogan.

    We're so fast because our mowers are Turban equipped.
