Need help with business name

    I need help with a business name! 

    I am a powerseller and registered selling assistant on ebay and have been selling on ebay for 9 years mostly my own items of old and historic newspapers, maps, prints and engravings. I realize how important it is to diversify my products so I have been listing items for friends such as Motorcycles, Rolex and antiques.

    I would like to put an ad in the local newspaper to sell items on consignment for others. I have read several books on selling items on consignment on ebay. Since I live in an area with many lakes one idea is "Lake Region Online Auctions" but it doesn`t mention anything about my specialty of old/historic newspapers and maps.

    Any suggestions for a business name/branding would be greatly appreciated!!!!!

     Thank you very much for your input on trying to figure out a business name!

    I feel the outstanding feedback/integrity I have on my present site is a big advantage when selling on ebay so I think it is best to keep just one business. My seller user ID on ebay is nls  You can read all about my services and products I provide. 

    I was also solicited by a business in Australia to help "brand" my business and come up with a business logo and iprove my ebay store and listings. They however wanted $500 to start and $500 when complete. My big hold-up now is coming up with a business logo/name!

    Although I plan to continue to list my own items (Antique/historic newspapers, engravings and maps) I realize there is a huge market in consigning items for others.

    I have listed many different items already for friends and acquaintances but if I want to put an ad in the local paper for such a service I think I need a business name. 

    Thanks again for your replies and hope to hear from you again!

    Naming a business is not difficult. You only need to be creative. You can use any of the following methods:
    -Forming a name by combining words
    -By omitting letter(s) from a word
    -By reversing the spelling of a name or word
    Meanwhile, there are other advice on this from different people at
    Meanwhile, everything comes back to how you want to brand your business.

    I would stick to the basics.
    Short and memorable name! Proper company identification; and last but not least a unique name, it is a bit of a cliche, but it is quite important.
