Help! Naming my Business

Hello everyone! I've never been a part of a forum like this before, so I hope I'm doing it right! I was wondering if I could get some help/input on what to name my business. Im driving myself crazy with words and phrases, and I just want to get an outsiders opinion.

My business is going to be in the finance industry. I'm getting certified to be a financial coach (Dave Ramsey style) and I also want to offer bookkeeping for individuals/small businesses, Quickbooks consulting, and MAYBE one day tax planning.

I want a name that almost defines what I want my business to be. I want to HELP people, whether that be helping them make a plan to get out of debt, helping them make and stick to a budget, or helping take care of a small businesses finances so they can focus on growing their business. I want to provide hope for those that have lost it, and I want to teach people how to be good stewards of the money they have. Some phrases/names I've thought of (although some names are already taken) :

Freedom Financial
Faithful Steward Financial
Sensible Steward Financial
Dream Big Financial

I can't seem to break the mindset of having "Financial" at the end...that's just all I could think of. Any suggestions are welcome!! And thank you all in advance!

@MeganS - I'll apologize in advance for what may be an inappropriate generalization, but when my wife started her business she was deeply consumed with "aesthetics" like a name and great business cards and the actual mechanics of the business fell to me (which worked out, and continues to work out, fine as she sees the actual clients).

Helping people and adding value is the bedrock of the Fastlane (if i may say so), but it's also important to turn a profit in an ethical way.

Just want to make sure you've got the major puzzle pieces on your radar like how "helping people" pays the bills.

Also, blogging can get short shrift in some parts but if you think you're on to something, it might be a good place to start and hone your craft. In such a saturated market you'll need to work hard to stand-out. And the determination required to produce a quality blog post twice a week for a year might give you a sense if you can hang-in there in a real business.

-PM

P.S. - Do you have a story to tell? Were you loaded with debt and got out of it somehow? Did a major life event force a change? A thing that people can relate to or a way people would want to be like you?

I would suggest getting the book: "Hello My Name Is Awesome; How to Create Brand Names That Stick" by Alexandra Watkins.

You're overthinking the name. I don't go to Wal-Mart because they have a cool name(it's not a cool catchy name), I go to Wal-Mart because they have what I want.

All of those names would be fine except maybe "Dream Big Financial". Freedom Financial is already all over the place, won't be a unique brand name.

Of the other two that are left, just pick one that you like that isn't already registered.

Nice to meet you and welcome to this forum. I am also a new member of this forum.
From your description it seems to me that you are offering all kinds of finance related support.
What about using the name "Financeguru"?

It's not that important. Don't let small details stop you DOING. Get started and if it comes to it you can rename/rebrand down the line.
