    I am seeking any ideas for a new business name for my current company. My current company name is West Coast Dealing Academy but I am looking to shorten it to maybe one or two words.

    West Coast Dealing Academy is a casino dealer training center. We train anyone interested in becoming a casino dealer. We offer games in Blackjack, Pai Gow Poker, Baccarat, Roulette, Craps, Poker and other casino games.


    Thank all who submit!!!


    Since 2004, West Coast Dealing Academy has specialized in Casino Consulting and Table Games training services. We offer everything you need to know in order to become a Professional Casino Dealer and are the casino's first choice when hiring new Dealers to their Table Games Department. We have held Table Games Training contracts with Viejas Casino, Santa Ysabel Casino and Valley View Casino to train their Dealers, Floor Supervisors and Surveillance Department.

    Hi Chad,

    I've personally created over 1000 business names this past year in my company Biz Name Wiz.

    And I see why you're changing your name, not just the length but the confusion and easy mocking potential.   When I first read it I understood you were a school (Academy) but wondered "You teach people to deal what?"  :)  

    Also having "West Coast" limits your brand national expansion, but I'm sure you already know that.

    Anyway here's some ideas, and fyi I didn't spend any time looking up .com availability, competition or trademark infringement.  Just brainstorming for a minute ...

    CD Academy (Casino Dealing)

    Casino Dealing College

    CDT - Casino Dealer Training

    Blackjack Blackboard

    Casino Pro Institute

    Casino Pro Academy

    C-Deal Academy  (C-Deal = Casino Dealing)

    Best of luck!
