    Hello Everybody,

    So I've been pondering on what to call my company for a while now, and I was wondering if perhaps the community might have some suggestions and/or questions that would get me thinking in the right direction. I go by "Drafter" on the C.B., and had considered going with something draft horse oriented initially, but everything I've come up with so far is lackluster, or it makes me sound like I'm some kind of a horse hauling specialist.

    Another fun idea that I had was going with "Ornery Mother Trucker Inc." Sounds fun, until the heavy sigh of my conscience kicks in and I realize that it's sorely lacking in professionalism. So I'm kind of stuck for the moment. I want something fun, memorable, professional, and easily identified. Anyone is welcome to chime in and pick my brain. Maybe you'll inspire me! A final thought I had was to revive the name of my former business venture (not trucking related), which was "Myth & Legend" with a logo depictic a whimsical beast of some kind.

    That would have sentimental value as a bonus. Maybe a variation of that would work. Like "Mythic Trucking" or...?

    I think you should have a unicorn standing on a bar and shield.

    My old company logo was actually a unicorn that was rearing up on its back legs. The leonine style tail curved around to spell out the company name in cursive with the tassle curling the other direction. It looked pretty nice. Thank you for the suggestion Jumbo. Anyone else have any thoughts?
