I'm just about to set up a new company and I need to come up with a name for it. The company will be providing IT Consultancy, Project Management and Administrative Support.

I have a name in mind, but the couple of people I've told have pulled funny faces when I've said it...

"Square Root Consulting".

What do you guys think of it and any other suggestions?

agreed, square root cons is dreadful. You need something catchy with no reminders of crappy maths lessons in high school !! You want to sound professional and grown up yet have a name that sticks in your mind if you were a prospective client. Keep it simple... classy....

let me go have a shower and I will have a think !!! ......

lol at "old rope"

Mep - I will be providing services to pretty much any company who needs IT consultancy or Project Management, whether it's Telecoms or Transport... so not really focused on having a sector based name, as I will have a few people working for me who are experienced in several fields...

How about "Circle Squared"
I quite like the idea of something that's quite difficult/embarressing for a receptionist to say, but then I'm very juvenile....

"I Slit The Sheet, The Sheet I Slit Ltd"

Insulting Consulting - "We say what we really mean" ? :thumbsup: :D

I know how difficult think of company names can be - we've "re-branded" about 5 times, and every one of the new company names has been totally rubbish!

"IT's Covered" encompassing the IT part and the fact that you can cover what someone wants.

All the "consultants" I've ever known were GITS....

If it's all areas of IT which it sounds like it is, PC to Mainframe then your people are going to need to know some serious stuff to cover all scenarios. I work for a company that is exactly that, but as a software delevlopers/vendors. So I'm thinking, they're in the know:

Know IT

or

Know IT Systems

People still like company names they can abreviate & it's always nice to include your surname or initials if you are the sole owner.


(surname) IT Systems
(surname) Systems Consulting
(surname) Enterprise Systems

Spartan IT

I think you could get a good logo from that, it sounds modern, like you could get the job done...the Spartans were cool! AND www.spartanIT.com is not being used.

Who says your name has to be related to what you do? Tom Tom, Elephant.co.uk etc. all unrelated and easily remembered.

What about using the word "Connect" in the title? After all that's kind of what you'll be providing to people?

Probably too generic to be not taken though (ie: "Connect IT")? Although you do have a play on words there as well, as in I.T and the word "it"?

Why not pitch this as an idea to a tv production company. That way we could see a new name picked over 8 months of live tv on channel 4. And it would be more entertaining than Big Brother.
