In my home town we have:
"Hair off the dog" dog groomers (not sure if the expression "hair of the dog" makes it outside of the UK)
"Smallbone and Sons" funeral directors
"Pull yourself together" curtain shop

Elsewhere I've seen:
"Curl up and dye" hairdressers
And this:

I worked for a Swiss company that was taken over by Siemens, the UK office was in Staines.
The receptionist quit four days later, after all the crank calls (many of them internal), waiting to hear her announce "Good Morning Siemens Staines, how may I help you?".

A few miles up the road from here is a firm of solicitors called Wright Hassall -- they are, by all accounts, very good, but the name must get them remembered!

I seem to recall the same town used to play host to a shop selling door furniture, called simply Knobs & Knockers.

On another project I was introduced to the cleaning supervisor from a company called Swan.
They all had uniforms embroidered with "Swan Cleaning", so I suggested to him that I had never before met someone involved in such a specialist occupation.
He did assure me that they had a lot of work.  ;)

I wonder how many people genuinely enquire about swan cleaning services instead of Swan Cleaning services.
