Default I've got a name, but I'm gonna pay for it in the morning!
Oh wait, it is morning! I couldn't sleep, so I got up and started brainstorming. I went through the cute, the quirky, and the downright inappropriate before coming up the very simple Buckeye Professional Services.

So what do we think? I did a search and believe it or not, in the great state of OHIO it is actually available.

Now for a tagline. Crap, there goes my last 2 hours of sleep.

Shawna,

Good name and so lucky it was not taken. You will have to keep us up on the tagline.

I miss Ohio. Not so much this time of year though.

O-H

Sounds like a winner to me, Shawna! Did you check domain availability for a website, too?

Hi Shawna!

Congratulations on finding your "name".

I had to smile because one of my new skills (and one I would like to make my Unique Selling Point) is localization i.e. US English into UK English.

In British English a "Buckeye" is called a "Conker". So for a tag-line I guess you could have a play on words and say something like "My Business will conquer (conker) all your administration needs"!

Good luck in your new venture!

Congratulations on your name! It's great that it's available, because the worse thing would be to brainstorm for a long time and come up with something that is already gone!

Hi! Something I learned is to triple check the secretary of state's website and contact them via telephone to make sure it's not taken in any form

Good luck!

I know how you feel about not sleeping - I have had thoughts running through my mind day and night since I decided to pursue starting a VA business.
