Default 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?

What industry are you targeting? mostly manufacturing and construction

Where is the business located? middle TN

Is it a brick and mortar store? no but we do have masonry tools and safety equipment.

Online only? we do have a store front but our customers will order online.

How will you market it? door to door baby there are a ton of factories in my area.

What's your target demographic? mostly manufacturing and construction

Have you got a business plan yet? very rough at this point just getting started.

Have you met with anyone from the SBA? not for this one.
