Naming a company is not easy

AOL Money has compiled an impressive feature about many companies and products that were named for family members. In researching the topic, I came across a few companies that might have thought this through a bit further, including --

  • Davis Erection Co. (NE)
  • Madge Networks
  • Linoleum Dicks (CA)
  • Boxwell Brothers Funeral Homes (TX)
  • Juan More Taco (CA)
  • Uncle Tom's Cabin

I also found some companies that might have benefited from adopting a family name instead of the one they chose.

  • Phartronics Engineering
  • McData Corp.
  • 2nd Century Communications
  • Salt and Battery Fish & Chips (Australia)
  • The Best Little Hairhouse in Gresham (Oregon)
  • Garden of Eat'n (TX)
  • Wok Around the Clock (Australia)
  • El Squid Roe (MX)
  • Dr. Sewer
  • The Men's Room
  • The Suffering Duck Restaurant
  • Mother Mousse
  • Citizen Canine (CA)
  • Daffy's Duct Shop
  • Lox Around the Clock
  • Skinderella Skin Care Products, Inc.
