I need business name ideas!

I want a name that say smart or intelligent homes without using the words smart or intelligent. I want something "catchy". Any ideas!

Maybe I need to mention that I need serious names :)

Anything containing the word Squintz in any fashion is not going to fly.

I need something short and simple that I can plaster on the side of my truck that basically is either a cool catch name the people will remember or that has a nice slogan to go with it that will cause people to remember the name. I need to keep it generic so that I can expand later on. That is why I dont want to use the SmartHome type name. I want something that says "I will come in and wire just about anything you through at me" type name but also says that I specialize in Home Automation, Security, and Data

I gave this to a guy in FL who used it:

TCS - Total Cabling Solutions, he grew from a single guy to now over 30 trucks on the road

Hey Squintz,

I've been contemplating the same thing!

Thinking about making the jump next year away from the corporate world where I've been and IT Director for a number of years and focusing on a HA business that would likely still offer some PC/Networking services home and small business.

Another one of my criteria to add to
Squintz: short and simple that I can plaster on the side of my truck that basically is either a cool catch name the people will remember or that has a nice slogan to go with it that will cause people to remember the name

is that the name interface nicely with an AVAILABLE domain name. This is what I'm having the most difficult time with. I'm come up with at least a dozen names that seem usable, but I can't figure out anything that I can match close enough to an available domain name :)

Cheers,
Paul

I picked Tech-Home because of a available .com name
I wanted it short and simple.

SO I would seond what Pkoslow stated.

Squintz,

No ideas for names, just a suggestion before you put your business name on the side of your truck.

Check with your auto insurance agent to be sure you will still have coverage! Many PERSONAL auto policies have exclusions against vehicles with business advertising on them, which means if an accident happened, your auto insurance would be null and void.

I know this is a new venture for you and I wish you much success.

Just a suggestion in case you haven't thought of this "gotcha". I've seen several cases of this in my state, for example a new real estate agent slapping the magnetic signs on the side of their car, without thinking to talk to their insurance agent first.

Even the insurance companies that will permit it, usually will charge you a "business surcharge" of approx 20% additional on your premium. Most of the auto insurance companies I represent will NOT allow it at all.

Something to check, in case you haven't already.

Just like the insurance companies - charge craxy rates and find any reason to not pay claims. It's even worse in the medical insurance field.

Anyway Squintz how about Tek Home Control Unlimited ? check on the URL THC-unlimited

Thanks for the names. I like the "Wired for Life" name. Also thanks for the heads up about the insurance. I did not know that either. Please feel free at any time to point out any gotchas that I may not know. I have never created a business before but I do have family in business. I will have support when its time to jump but right now I am trying to line up my Ducks.

With many new technologies going wireless, I am not sure if "wired for life" is a good idea, just my 2 cents.

Is there a prize for this, with a winning name like mine I feel like a prize is in order.

Or,

Smartwire, the intelligent way to wire your home.

I'm betting this will get TONS of hits, however you may also want to start selling low tar, nicotine reducing water pipes.
