Go Back To The Basics

Review why you want to start the business, what it is to be known for, the visions, mission, and selling proposition for it. Also, consider the industry you are in and ensure you are personally happy with the final choice. This is important because your business has to live with the name for a long time. It should be a unique unforgettable name.

Conduct A Brainstorming Session.

Think about the name suggestions that are coming to mind and write them out. This you can do with a friend, colleague or partner. At this stage, you will have a very long list of names. Do not be afraid, you are still doing alright. Be creative. Let the thought process flow freely. Follow the guidelines that you have set yourself to. Avoid names that will limit you to particular geographies or location or allow you move around to add product lines.

Keep It Simple

Simplicity is sexy. Straight-forward names are back in style. They cost less to brand.

Take Time Off

You will have a long list of names most likely. Remove those that don’t resonate with you till you prune the list to about five names. Then walk away and come back after a time. If none of the names feels right to you, then start brainstorming process again.

Check For Availability

If it is acceptable, check for availability – both at the corporate registration authorities in your country and online through Google search. Check if the .com domain for the company name is available. Customers tend to associate .com with established brands than .net or others. If not available, then check if the domain owner is willing to sell. Check if the name is trademarked or not with the registration authorities. Check on the social media platforms for the availability of handles generated with your business name.

Ask The Right Audience

Ask an audience (aside family and friends). Find out if the name makes sense and if it links with the product or service you are selling.

Secure The Business Name

This is done by registering your business with the appropriate authorities (probably working with a lawyer). Incorporating a business name, even if small, is important so that the business is a separate legal entity from you the owner.
