I was thinking of trying to start a photography business, based on the naturality of people + animals etc. I dont want to get in trouble for accidentally stealing a name. Any ideas?

Recently gone through this process myself.
1. Whatever you choose, GOOGLE IT. Even if the domain is free, there may be someone with a very similar name just down the road doing the same business.
2. Start with something that means something to you if you can.
For me, I started with my initials. My initials are ACT so I tried to think of words with it. I went with Actually Studios until I did my google search.
3. Think about how it reflects the company. Another thing I thought about was alliteration. After I decided the name (my company is called Ice Storm Studios) and I told my dad about the alliteration idea he gleefully said "Shitstorm Studios!" Although hilarious, not an image you want to portray.
I have to ask, and only because I've been through he process. Why are you looking to set up a company? What type do you want to make? Is this a business idea or a hobby? Have you written a business plan? Do you know the costs involved (and yes, just registering has a cost)?1
