Default Company Name - Rate It

Hello,

I'm starting an IT company (or rather "branding" and extending what I already do as a freelancer).

I plan to sell (or lend) ecommerce solution (shopping cart, affiliate management, SEO services, etc.) on a local market (no US/UK), which is quite a nice niche as most open source systems (e.g. ZenCart, OsCommerce, Magento or Drupal+Ubercart (which I customize now)) are completely unsuitable for European tax system or specifically tax system in my country (also payment options tend to be rather complicated).

The only problem that remains to be solved is the name of the start-up (I can do the rest myself / with employers ). There are several requirements for the name (simple to remember, free local domain, simple to pronounce etc.) So far, after some brainstorming, a friend of mine came up with a name Orison (or Orison.tld - substitute tld with your favourite top level domain). I checked it in the dictionary, it has (unintentional) meaning of "a prayer".

What do you think? Should I use the name? Is it suitable for IT (ecommerce solutions) start-up? (Ignore meaning for non-english speakers, as it can be easily pronounced both in English and in my language).

Thanks for any replies.

Note: I'm sorry if I had placed the post in a wrong section. I'm also sorry if it seems boring / inappropriate to ask about such things, but I just need to test the name before using it (think linkbuilding, PPC, logo design, etc.)

Just so you are aware, I did a quick google and there are a number of other businesses using Orison in their business name. Make sure to check your state or national business registry to see if the business name is taken.

Not sure what the registry is called in your Country, you'l have to fil in the blank there.

Good luck.

There are several other businesses with the same name, but none of them is really "global" and none of the them is near central Europe. I already checked the name for trademarks, and even companies with similar names are in completely different industry, so that's not a problem.
