    Don't play games with the name.
    Easy to remember, says what you do and who you are.
    Back in the day we used our name..people remember your name and shouldn't need to remember some wild name to find you.
    Explaining mythical creatures and names to potential customers could get uncomfortable quick.

    Although I was LMAO with Norfolk and Weigh, I agree with OneTruckPony. Keep it simple for brokers and customers, don't make it sound like anyone else, make sure the web address is available and make sure a transportation manager won't be embarrassed to say it in a meeting with his boss. Picture him sitting in a staff meeting saying "we're switching to _________ Trucking for dependable deliver of our products to our customers".

    What breed draft horse do you like? You could go with something like Clyde's Trucking with an image.

    I like the Ornery Mother Trucker, I would just do the abbreviation O.M.T. Logistics, or something like that. :biggrin_25525:
