Personally - people using their own name doesn't usually catch my eye.  (In
fact, a lot of times it seems pompous).

I don't have any bright ideas for names for you, but once you come up with
one, it's easy and cheap to register that name as your DBA (Doing Business
As).  Just go to your county office, pay around $40.00, and then they give
you details on how to run a small ad in their acceptable newspapers for
around another $40.00.  This gives anyone using the same name a chance to
respond and then you're free and clear.

You'll then get a "Certificate of Ownership" document, which allows you to
open a checking account with that name, depending where you plan to go with
this.  Gotta be able to deposit those big checks they're going to be making
out to you!

Good luck picking a name!
