I didn't have that problem because my last name is also a direction - West. However, most of the guys I know who have started their own firms do not use their own name. They usually come up with some descriptive name for their service, or, an acronym that makes sense and is catchy. There are so many possibilities to draw from. Maybe write down some words describing your capabilities and go to a thesaurus to find similar words that are marketable. Just a thought - - -
