    Can anyone suggest a name for a business that specializes all fields of artisan work?

    My sister's fiance can do just about anything: electronics, mechanical, renovating, painting, etc.  Can anyone suggest a business name because he wants to start his own business.  A name to illustrate he is an all-rounder?

    When I am in need of a name, especially a unique name; I use this website...

    You can select what you are looking for and it will give you a variety of different names to select from.

      I didn't know this existed.  This is going to help, thanks.

    The Allround Artisan. A Google search shows similar companies, but none with that name.

      I used the wrong word when I said artisan as corrected.  Perhaps Allround Construction? Thanks.

    I don't have a good name (I wouldn't go too crazy trying to be creative. In that business descriptive is more the norm), but I would leave the word "artisan" out of it unless he is specializing in "handcrafted" renovation. It has a certain hippie-ish connotation that might make a certain type of customer go the other way. Then again, is he custom painting murals or frescoes? That sounds "artisanal". Think of the products people imagine when you say "artisan". Certain fancy breads. A guy who carves pipes from raw wood with old-timey faces on them. Wine and cheese. Stuff like that. I would never think of someone doing mechanical or electronics.

    examples from Merriam-Webster:
    They sell rugs made by local artisans or
    we visited a re-created 19th-century New England village that features an array of artisans—a cooper, a carpenter, a blacksmith, a potter, a glassblower

    I would maybe use the word renovation or restoration combined with his last name. This would attract people needing a wide variety of services, I think. Good luck!
