name suggestions for a new business
 
my wife and i are thinking about starting an industrial supply company. we will be selling mainly safety supplies but will also offer tools, cleaning supplies, anything needed in the industrial work place.

Do you guys have any name suggestions for such a business?

Well give us a little more info bro...

What industry are you targeting?
Where is the business located?
Is it a brick and mortar store?
Online only?
How will you market it?
What's your target demographic?
Have you got a business plan yet?
Have you met with anyone from the SBA?
