Hi,I am opening a pet sitting business in October.  I am having a brain block.  Every name I think of is taken.  I want something different, fun, hip, fresh.   I originally picked the name Zoomies Pet Care, because my 2 Great Danes get the zoomies all the time and I just love that word.  Well, it is trademarked, so it is a no go. The one word or simple fun words is what I am after.Any ideas?thank you,Lynn

    What if a name I want is trademarked but for a completely different business?  I saw several registered for different businesses and none were pet related.  Is it ok to use the word as part of my pet related business?thanks,Lynn
