    I've decided to start my own little on-site computer repair/maintenance/1-on-1 training business. I'm about to start my website for said business, but I can't think of a clever name. I want to stress that they're not going to be dealing with a corporation or a large business that doesn't care, but with an individual who is qualified and who will be on call for future problems. I want to seem more approachable than a business like 1800-RENT-A-GEEK - I suppose I don't want to seem like a business at all :).

    In Austin there's a Mac repairman that refers to himself as 'The Wizard of Austin'. It's a cute little gimmick that makes him more approachable and reinforces that he knows what he's doing. I'll be operating out of New York City, so I suppose I could be a 'Wizard' as well, but I don't really fancy that name for myself :).

    Some things to think about (might help with thinking up names):

    My name: Emerson
    City I'll be operating in: New York, New York
    I'll be helping with Macs and PCs
    It will be on-site, so I could include that in the name, perhaps?

    Thanks for the input guys and girls! :)

    "Nerd Systems" "The Nerd" or "Your Nerd Neighbour" like in "I'm taking the peecee to the Nerd Neighbour". Instead of Genius, you could write "Nerd" on your ID label/shirt.

    Would you like it repaired ;)

    Thank you for all the suggestions! I like the pizza delivery one - my gimmick could be that I bring an (optional) pizza to my customers, upon request. :D

    Nerd of New York is good.

    I like Geek on the Go, that's pretty good. I can definitely use that in ads even if I don't use it as a main name: "I'm a geek on the go, ready to come to your place to fix your computer!" - or something along those lines.

    Hmmmmm.... That's not a bad idea at all. Thank you!

    Now that's an idea :D. "The Wolf will help you with any computer problem - because computer problems byte". Was that too bad?

    I'm gonna look forward to see how the mods handle that personal insult! ;)

    tempting :).

    Thanks guys, great ideas, keep 'em coming :).

    That's cute :).

    I could be "Nerd Alert" :). "Do you have PC problems? Call Nerd Alert Now!" That could work.
