    Hey,

    I'm investing in a local business. The business lays / installs all types of flooring:

    Wood floors
    Carpet
    Tile
    Stone
    etc

    The company also does maintenance on floors:

    Cleaning
    Restoration
    Coatings
    Protect
    Encapsulation
    etc

    So I'm buying it but I have to change the name and I'd like to try and figure out something catchy or maybe a (professional) play on words.

    Here is what I've come up with and decided against

    Fantasy Flooring 'We'll get you laid' (obviously can be offensive, funny though)

    Google Flooring (.com taken - and google isn't a word, it's a trademark)

    I've came up with 1,000 general names but nothing pops - I see businesses all the time with funny little names that really stick in your head, such as:

    A Thai restaurant named Thai Tanic, or En Thaising.

    A liquor store named The Dick Liquor

    A florist named Florist Gump

    You get the idea.

    Any suggestions would be great - also, if I pick the name you suggest I'll pay $30 tip to you via paypal.

    Thanks so much,
    Ducky

    P.S.

    Some other names I've gotten are

    First Floor
    Top Floor
    The Flying Carpet (this would be sweet, but it signifies only carpet)
    Floored (.com is taken by competitor)
    Honest Flooring 'We're not liars' (funny but not very professional)

    ^ is just to give you some ideas.

    Floor Essence is good. What's the slogan you're going with?

    For regional businesses, i actually would NOT get creative

    instead, get an exact match domain name of .com. net. or .org and get it to match the exact name that most of your customers type in.

    like SanDiegoTile.com
