I faced that issue a couple years back when starting my own LLC. It really depends on what the goal of the company is. There is no one size fits all.

* Does he intend to stay a single member or single owner and only do consulting or contract work? If so, keep it simple. Something like First Name Last Name Services LLC (e.g.; John Doe Services, LLC) is good enough. It has the added bonus of making sure your clients remember your name.

* Does he intend to grow and add more people as members/owners and/or employees? If so, using a domain name generator with keywords that describe his type of business. A good one to use is Impossibility[^]. If the domain is free chances are the company name is free too for your local area.

And don't forget, it's not about what you think is cool. It's about what your customers think is cool. If the two align, great. If not... customers come first.
