    I'm beginning a rewrite on the novel I just finished for NaNoWriMo, and I need a better name for the research laboratory that features heavily in the story. The best comparison for it is Global Dynamics from the Syfy show Eureka, or Cyberdyne from the Terminator movies. They have their hands in everything, from consumer electronics to military weapons development to biotechnology and animal research.

    My original name was Brantin Laboratories, but that is uber-dull. Someone I know came up with BioCom, which is perfect, but BIOCOM is a real organization in California, and if I'm to pursue publication, I don't want to be sued.

    Any ideas?

    Why not BioTech Industries or BioTech Labs?

    I can't help you with a name but don't use BioLife either. It's the name of a plasma donation center here.

    Maybe sticking your original idea and renaming it to Brantin Corporation, and shorten it to BrantCo?

    What's that you say? Already being used by a kick ass tv show? Oh well.

    How about something mundane yet comprehensive? Like Umbrella Corp only not.
