Company name

Hello,
Sometimes, talking about companies, we use not existing companies with imaginary names as an example just to explain some typical practices, details, etc. For instance, "Company A enters into agreement with Company B..." It occured to me that here in Russia we have very popular imaginary names to be used as such examples, and if we here these company names we are aware that the companies are not real. The names are ROGA I KOPYTA (Horns & Hoofs), KRASNY LAPOT' (Red Bast Shoe), or PUPKIN & CO (Pupkin & Co) (may be some others?..)
I was wondering if there are such names in other languages?
