Whats in a name?

Guys
I am taking the first steps toward starting a Catering Business
Here is my question
Which name sounds better

Thoms Authentic BBQ

Thoms Barbecue

Thom and Kyles Bubba Q
(Kyle is my son)

Thoms we left it out all night but it will be fine BBQ

Remember my market is SoCal and most folks here think Applebees does great Q

I agree with ZBQ, I like the "BubbaQ" but I'm also Not from SoCal, I'm from Cottontown, TN (AKA "The Sticks"). I think the "Thoms Authentic BBQ" would probably fly a little better there.

I'm not from California but I don't think people in California would know what Bubba means.

Thoms Authentic BBQ . To me "Bubba" sounds "hick" and folks don't want to trust hicks with high dollar events. No offense intended to anyone from our southern states.
