Choosing a business name, your name or a business name?

I am getting the groundwork to start a small side business and before I start creating a website/have business cards made I have a question on the name.

I read an article a couple mths ago that recommended using a Business name like for me "Boston Creative" vs using the name I have for my Instagram Michael Frederick Photography.

I have a business name I could use that hasn't been already used.  There is a Michael-Frederick.com website in Sweden but I would more use something like MichaelFrederickPhoto.com.  My 1st and Middle name is more catchy than my boring last name.

Has anyone done any research as to what appears to be more professional appearing?  Just curious.
