Your main choice is between sounding "established", "professional" or

"Established" companies contain merely names, and give no indication of what
they do: "Shiels and Company". 
(Examples from real life: "Ede and Ravenscroft", "Coutts".)

"Professional" companies possibly contain a name and give *some* indication of
what they do: "Robert Shiels Consulting", "Shiels IT Services".
(Examples: "Merchant Ivory Productions", "Barclay's Bank".)

"Informal" companies contain one or two words which *hint* at what they do,
and no names (and are much harder to come up with. :) : "The SAP Workshop"
(Examples: "Microsoft", "NetThink".)
