Uncommon Business Name
Posted by Anonymous on

I need a catchy business name for a pet grooming shop!! Since there are so many shops out in Southern California, I would like to hear some names that are a little different, and unique.

Let me ask this question...
What is it you are trying to achieve?
What if...for the sake of conversation...you named your company ManeLine (mane of a lion)? Would that be unique...really?
If the purpose of the name is to educate your client base that you perform a specific service...any name you select should be followed by: "Pet Care and Grooming" or, something like that. Would you agree to that premise?
Since there are so many shops...and, if they are doing their job properly, they are naming their company regionally, to attract local business (West Side Grooming).
Where is your business? Would it hurt to not be so catchy and unique?
If you are on Jones Street or in an area called Memorial area...why not be Jones Street Pet Care and Grooming? or Memorial Pet Care and Grooming?
Just a couple of thoughts for you. Best of Luck.

There have been many good and some very strange suggestions so far.
Here are a few more, I'll let you decide whether the fall under "good" or "strange." :)

Except name your shop:
"Styling from head to tail with a paw friendly staff"
