Default Incorporating this year. Name?

I'm finally going to incorporate.
I'm still deciding in the name...
Should I keep my HD painting name or use my "last name- painting"
I'm starting to think is like to promote my name in my area instead of company name.
And it's guys in my area use their names in the title. And I guess if my kid got into it it would be turn key haha.

"Last name" painting is the easiest way to cash the checks at your clients banks... and dodge the paper trail

At least thats my opinion. Says the operator who wishes he had zero morals in that area. I owe more in taxes this year than i made gross 3 years ago....

You may want to look into keeping both names.
You can incorporate one company, for example. HD Enterprises Inc.
And then you can list "operating as"companies. So one would be HD painting ltd , and the other would be your named company.
This will legally allow you to work both companies at the same time. So your current clients will not see that you changed your name, and any website or marketing material will still be able to be used.
I think this is worth a look, because myself, I always wonder why people change their Company names. And to be honest I usually presume that something happened that has forced them to change their name.
If your name is good, keep it. You worked hard for it.
