Subject: Help ideas for new company name please
From: GUEST,Steve
Date: 24 Apr 05 - 01:38 PM

A group of musician's singers and artists will be forming a company to deliver music/art workshops.

We will be delivering in various genres and to age groups from pre school, junior, secondary etc and to adults.

Any ideas for a company name would be graciously accepted.

Thanks in advance

i am thinking of the word "deliver" as it applies to a song or speech
or lines in a theatre...something like Special Delivery...
or the term Projection as in putting your voice out there to be heard
as well as an image projected onto a screen...something about that:
"Projection" which also has the base (root) word of Project in it..
which this will be . Not known where you are...but ,my guess is NOT
in U.S. as funding for such Special Delivery Projects is hard to come by
Is there a postal category for Express Delivery or Special Handling?
somehow it seems you could wrap up this package deal and use terms
from the postal world,,unless they are copy right or exclusive...
good luck and Express Yourself~!

oh yes, and express has a couple of meanings two i mean too.

I'm beginning to lean towards business names that don't have to be remembered. For example, if I installed drywall, I would call myself "The Drywall Crew." Anybody who wanted to find me could just look in the phone book under "drywall" and there I'd be.

I suggest giving yourselves a name that starts with "music" or with "workshop"

But come to think of it, "workshop" doesn't sound like fun, does it? Especially to kids, I bet. Why don't you scuttle the workshop terminology?

What "they" teach these days is that a name should be limited to 2-3 main words & tell the average person on the street what the business offers without alot of ambiguity (like "roses & more," more is too ambiguous). Sounds like you are offering various Arts including Music, so "Art(s)" should be in there. So think of ways to phrase bringing the Arts to folks. Perhaps something like:

Fun With Arts
Art(s) To The People
Arts For You
City Arts Project
Arts For Education
(name of your city) Artists
The Arts Shoppe

                Good Luck!

Make sure you can get the name registered everywhere you need it (in the UK - Companies House; .co.uk / .com URLs etc). You often find you can get the company name but not the URL or vice versa.

There are a lot of company names out there and it is getting more and more difficult to get words which have not been registered already - we wanted a single word name for our record label and ended up inventing one ("Acoustyistics Ltd").

Hope this helps.

Tunes-R-Us ?



Are you sure you actually need to be a company ? There are advantages (members are not personally liable for debts, separate legal entity), but also drawbacks.

For example you need to keep all accounts and receipts for six years in the UK, for tax and registration purposes. And, while a voluntary collective can recruit or drop members informally and easily, a company must go through the procedures of transferring shares, or paying employees which means lots of bother with National Insurance.

There's lots of information at Companies House.

Just a small point that if you DO choose a UK limited company, there are some things you can't use in a company name (and also some rules banning offensive names). But the list of existing names is freely available on the internet, if you want some inspiration.

Kreation Works Un Limited you may have trouble with Companies House about the almost use of "Unlimited" (which is reserved for Unlimited Companies - term of art)

If so you would probably get Kreation Worksun Limited.

Several other Kreation compnaies, but none so close as to bar registration - passing off is anyone's guess, but my second suggestion should be reasonably safe but get independent advice.

You would not be able to use any name or phrase which terminated with the contiguous letters "unlimited" (ignoring white space), without the permission of the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry. This would rule out "Kreation Worksun Limited".

This is because an "unlimited" company is a different animal from "limited" companies; in the latter, the directors' liability is limited to the amount they have paid (or promised to pay) for their shares; in the former, there is no limitation. There are very few such companies.

However, "Worksun Kreation Limited" would be perfectly acceptable (if not already taken).


(Incidentally, how do I know all this ? Well, I am in the process of setting up as a self-employed contract programmer, which requires me to set up as a company. Lots of rectal ache, but has to be done. At my age, permanent jobs in the software industry are getting very difficult to obtain.

No company with "HuwG" anywhere in the name is registered, but this would probably be rejected on the grounds of possible obscenity or misleading information. The "HuwG Software Company" sounds to the unwary ear too much like a description of Micro$oft.)

Please, for the sake of us poor Inland Revenue workers in Corporation Tax, please don't make up a word... it's very difficult to get people to spell correctly as it is.... I've even had a company whose own director couldn't spell the made up word that was their name!

Something nice and simple is probably best.... check with Companies House to make sure it's not already taken (although this is not essential, there are several small companies with the same name, carrying out different businesses in different areas) - it's usually only the big companies that get snotty about you using their names ('Dolce & Gabanna' got snotty with my father in law for his former company 'D&G Shopfitting'), or names that could be linked to them.

Good luck and I look forward to checking your accounts! Remember - £100 penalty for late filing....

Check out some of the existing UK limited companies! Its all on public record:

Farkmaye
Blow Job
Bol Lox
Cunning Stunts
F.U. Bigot
Cupid Stunts
for a few examples

Coney Hall Ltd may be a reference to an old song!
(I have a Tenement to let, its name is Coney Hall...see Pills to Purge Melancholy, I think). This makes more sense when you know that Coney is (or WAS) pronounced to rhyme with Honey

You may have threats of legal action even if properly registered, like Mike Rowe Soft! (that was his real name)

Another hint. The letters "and" are taken as the same as &, so M&Y would be regarded as identical to Mandy, and you wouldn't be able to register MANDS, for example.

However, names CAN include nonalphabetic characters, such as *

Pavane, someone is being maybe overcautious in advising you.

There are also several wossname Unlimited Limited companies on the register although that is strictly forbidden, and the official explanation is that they were put on in error, and curiously there is now no power to remove them although if now applied for they would be refused.

My information comes from the horses mouth, as it were (see previous post). But as the checks cannot be fully automated, some things do slip through which are against the rules.

Penny Farthing may be queried, as it contains an embedded rude word!

I have a long list of words which cannot be used unless they have approval, and different words need approval from different sources.

Some random samples which CANNOT be used unless authorised
