I think Chilly Willy sounds like a winner! Definitely a name no one will forget.

A lot of funny names here. I laughed when I first saw Big Ass Fans. But it worked in their market.
A resi company name is usually more personal or sends a message like economy or quality or locality. If you have a good last name, consider using it. It puts a person in the company's name. I'd avoid initials like J&B T&M, because it's common and can be confused or mixed up. An exception is 3 initials like IBM. For some reason they seem to work.
A lot of commercial companies like names that sound corporate. They won't use a name like El Cheapo Heat/cool. They want to sound solid and like they have been around.
So gear the name to your market. When I named my company I didn't want calls from the general public. I was after contractors, facility managers, and architects. I named it HVAC New Mexico. Most of the public doesn't know what HVAC means so they didn't call.
The worse names are ones that don't tell a thing about the company. Just confuse. Like using names that don't relate.
That's about all I know. What I.m really good at is naming bucking bulls. Like Aces N' Eights, or Buck Naked.
I should have played the g'tar on the MTV. MK
You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.
Well since this thread has been revived yet again tell us what you named your company.
