Topic tags/keywords: question humor

I will soon be embarking on setting up a new shop. It is going to be tiny for me as it is half of what I’ve had in the past. The new shop will be a 12’ x 30’ pre-built shed. Trying to come up with a name but have a mental block going. My last name is Nehls pronounced nails. I’m trying to come up with something that will sing using my last name. Any help in ideas is appreciated. Hope this doesn’t sound to silly to you.

Well I’ve queeryed some of my friends on the names suggested and everyone says The Nehls End is the one they liked most. So my new shop will be called The Nehls End. Thanks everyone, sometimes its the simplest things that get over looked.
