New Accounting Firm Name Challenge

merge.jpgWe read about an accounting firm M&A specialist who is predicting what he calls a “mega-merger” between two of the top 25 firms. Since this guy is probably getting greased on the deal we’ll take him at his word but unfortunately he’s not naming names.
So for the pure sport of speculation, we need your best and worst guesses of what firms will be getting together and what the new combined firm will be called.
We’ve taken the liberty of listing the top 25 firms for you:
The list, after the jump


• Deloitte
• PricewaterhouseCoopers
• KPMG
• Ernst & Young
• BDO Seidman
• Grant Thornton
• RSM McGladrey/McGladrey & Pullen (divorce nothwithstanding)
• CBIZ/Mayer Hoffman McCann
• Crowe Horwath
• BKD
• Moss Adams
• Plante & Moran
• Clifton Gunderson
• J.H. Cohn
• UHY Advisors

• Virchow, Krause and Co.
• Dixon Hughes
• LarsonAllen
• Marcum & Kliegman
• Rothstein Kass and Co.
• Weiser
• Eisner

Try to use your number crunching brains for some creative combinations. Call your friends in marketing if necessary. If we get enough good suggestions, we’ll put together a poll to vote on the best.
We’ll get it started: Hughes Dixon Moss
Think about it. Work with us people. Just charge your time to an administration code, it’ll be fine.
