    We register several companies most days and get to see some great names (when it is as trustee for discretionary trust I have to sign the cheque and the trust deed as settlor)

    I have a few clients working through tv shows and cartoon characters.

    But the majority of people with multiple entities keep it quite boring so that they can keep track of them, 3 most common ones

    Address - 27 Smith Street ATF 27 Smith Street Trust
    Suburb in order - Smithville No1. ATF Smithvile No1. Trust
    Last Name Purpose Number - Smith Business Trust 1 ATF Smith Business Trust 1

    Not overly appropriate but oh well, this is supposed to be a fun thread. These guys are in the business of applying mulch etc to commercial garden-beds. I thought the company name was amusing enough, but even better that the local council had hired them to pretty up their front gardens! Everyone was doing a double-take when they were driving past council that day!

    funny! Down our way theres a curtain/blind shop with an optometrist on either side. He promotes himself as 'the blind guy between two optometrists' which I think is pretty clever.

    In Victoria we have retail shops called 'Reject shop' or 'Not quite right'. Always wondered why people wants to buy stuff that other people have rejected or are not quite right for consumption. Reminds me about food poisoning :eek:

    Another funny name is 'Athletes Foot'. who an earth decided to name sports store after contagious fungus disease...:eek:

    I have come across two really funny ones or may be not ;)

    1. Washing Ton D.C - This is a laundry and drycleaning business. So, the name Washing Ton Dry Cleaners !

    2. Anu's cleaning -
    Anu is quite a popular name in the subcontinent. Noticed a shop named above providing cleaning services.

    I once saw "Ah Choo Medical Hall" in Penang. I don't know if this was a real name in Chinese or it was a description of what they fixed.
