Your business name can be playful and fun or serious and sophisticated. Your business name says what you want it to about your business. A business name is similar to your attire. If you want to be thought of as a business professional you might wear a button up blouse with slacks or a suit. If you are more casual and fun loving you may dress in jeans or brightly colored t-shirts. Your business name is the same. An example of a sophisticated name would be Roberto's Fine Catering Service.
