Lightbulb The New Guy

Hey! My name is Gabriel, from Québec. 30 yrs old, been painting for about 5 years and I stumbled upon this site because of a dilemma I'm having (and help from google).

I started my Painting Career as a College Pro Painter, they offer the business course, loan you money to start off and coach you throughout your career on how to improve your business, which is really cool.

The problem i'm facing now is that I recently quit the program to go on my own but I can't think of a good company name for the life of me.
See... i'm in Québec, so I need my company name to work for both french and english.. and having the initials GM makes it hard because of the car make... don't want to go with my last name either (Morin) because in english, that's a little too close to "Moron" for my taste...

While I was under CPP, my tax ID was registered as GM Peinture but never really had to use it except for cheques... and I would still get asked if I painted cars

Any suggestions?

*NOTE* I am thinking of moving out west, most likely in the Edmonton (alberta) area at the end of next summer so ..... screw french


EDIT: I think the best I could come up with is GMP, and then just have a subline for each french and english (I'll have 2 versions of website, business cards and flyers anyways...) but then again, GMP.com and .ca are already taken

Welcome to the group. I'm not a graphics guy but some here are pretty good with them. They should be along shortly.

Welcome to the group. What's your middle initial? (If you have a middle name) maybe try that. G-M Painting. Is the GMP your name now?

Welcome to the group!
Why not choose a name without your involving your personal name?
