Find a company name not trademarked or taken already
Every business needs a name to be identified. So, think about what name you would use for your business name.

Look up the Internet and public registers to make sure the name is not already taken.

Stay away from anything that could cause you legal trouble. So, do not go with a name like Miicroosoft. 😉 Be unique.
