I need to come up with a business name for my gardening business. I am just having a hard time making a decision on this. I sell organic produce, although I am not certified.
I started out thinking "Organic Rayn" would be the name (my middle name is Rayn)
But it doesn't really say what the product is so maybe that isn't so good.
I don't like the sound of my last name.
My great grandfather is really excited about this b/c he used to be a farmer, I was kind of thinking it would be sentimental if his last name was included but it isn't my last name, not sure if that would be a good thing or not...
His last name is Steinwender. Maybe that is hard to pronounce too or just doesn't sound right going with vegetables and fruits?
Any ideas?

Expanding on the PP's idea's...

Rayn Greenstein's Organics

...although, that might be a mouthful and you might want to drop "Rayn". Just know that you'll have people asking for Mr. Greenstein.

.
.

Ummmm....Two Peas In A Pod?

.
.
.

String Bean Organics? ...Stein Bean Organics (ok, don't use that one, it's strange. I'm tired.)

.
.
.

...Green Bean Organics... (I'm thinking about Beans alot...hmm)

.
.
.

Apple Rayn Organics

(some of these are ridiculous....bear with me, I'm rolling out some thoughts)

.
.
.

Raynie Days (oh GOD!!...I think my brain is broken)

.
.
.

Rayn or Stein Organics DING DING DING!! I think we have a winner!

...

I suggest: Rayn or Stein Organics

How about Sweet Rayn Organics. Because, you know, organics are all eco-friendly and stuff, and if something isn't acidic then it is sweet, right? It's not acid rain, it's Sweet Rayn?

Next....

(oh, I see, you aren't certified so you can't use "Organics." Hmm. Sweet Rayn Produce then?)

eta: I do think that Steinwender Produce has a nice, old-fashioned farm market sort of feel to it.

Darnit. Ok, "Rayn or Stein Produce" then
.....or even "Produce: Rayn or Stein" .... : ok, ok! I'm grasping now; but is that any reason to throw your merchandise at me?

Okay, everyone, I overheard my... partner talking to a friend, he was kind of joking with him about buying some organic vegetables and said from "Aponi's Secret Garden"
Aponi means butterfly, but that is our daughter's middle name...
I like it!
What do you think?

I like Steinwender Farms. Simple, classic sounding.

If the generations before you have at least dabbled, you could even say "four generations of healthy produce"
