erikstar pc repairs.

If your not happy with that (& I doubt you aren't), then look at incorporating your town/county/state name into the title for starters.

What I have learnt though is the company name as not as important as the service you provide.

Just remember one thing, you are gonna need to say your company name lots (answering the phone etc) so make it something that rolls of the tongue nicely.

Having raised many computers from the dead, the Biblical story came to mind, hence my business name. People either really like it, or don't know the reference.

For yours, when I see "Erik" spelled that way, I think "Viking" - how about Viking Tech, or something along those lines, if it's available? Easily remembered, rolls right off the tongue, and would make for a very nice logo, if you found the right artist.

Good luck!

Of course, make sure it's nothing too close to the name of the famous memory manufacturer.

E-PC Repairs. I think that name might narrow his market. Unless he likes only working on ASUS netbooks.

My last name is White and I wanted to use that as a business name but I figured it would probably give people the wrong idea, :-(

I decided on CyberCPU Computer Repairs because I already owned the domains, lol. As said before the name does not mater much in fact sometimes a funny name get recognised easier.
