Just as it says (s) at the end to indicate that the plumbing business belongs to jensen. I see a small but noticeable difference. Now if you wanted to calm the business jensen and nothing more than that then fine but I do for some reason believe it is best to have plumbing or plumbing and heating in the name. Maybe its a trades thing what do I know.

I kind of like your idea of "Danish Plumbing" and have thought of it myself before. My thoughts though are that. People will be asking if its some kind of different way to plum. Maybe they'll think "I don't want no stinking foreign weird plumbing" the pipewrench and pastry is a great idea though

You don't have to have the s at the end. And most of those companies weren't always just a single name. I'm pretty sure that as soon as people hear your voice they will understand why it's called Danish Plumbing. I really don't think people will associate the word Danish with being foreign or some weird kind of plumbing, most Americans haven't seen a world map since high school lolz Also we're fat so food would be good to get into our brains.


In America having your last name as your business name means something, or at least it used to. You're literally putting your name on your work, showing that you stand behind your promises.

I really think you're overthinking this. Pick a name you can easily explain, something unique enough that it won't be generic, but simple enough that rednecks can spell it. After that your good reputation will be all you need and the name won't be any different than a random phone number, just a unique identifier.

Well I probably am and I am a little more open to using my last name now but I'm pretty sure people have trouble spelling it if I say it. At least what I have experienced so no its not a simple name

People always ask me about my company name and I tell them “Smith plumbing, heating, and air has been taken many times over so I named it after a mountain at the lake I go fishing every year”.

I say check your state laws first. Here the company name has to have defined term like Joe's pizza, Ronald electrical, doodad Tires, etc. Sure some don't use the defining term but the government might come back later and force you to change the name. Either that or big companies with lawyers with big money can fight it in court or threaten to screw the economy.

I like geological names in reference to a plumbing company... When I look at Minnesota on the map I see lakes...

Land of Lakes plumbing... Lake of the woods plumbing...

My name isn't geological but it magically came to me one day and its been stuck in my head ever since

I'm not 100 percent familiar with Minnesota but it looks like the headwaters of the great lakes..

Head waters plumbing, Tributaries plumbing... Even go bare bones

Danes plumbing... Done

After using my last name on my DBA I went to use the full business name in a gmail account only to find there’s a company with the same name somewhere in California, so I just put MI at the end.

And yes, I have accidentally emailed camera videos to them.

Thats another thing. With the country being so big almost every name is already in use somewhere. I dont mind if another company somewhere else has the same name but preferably only 1 as I like being more original.
