How To Name Your Business

Business Name Generator gives you the tools to create a name for your startup, blog, podcast or pretty much any other business venture you can imagine.

Here’s how you do it:

  • Make a list of words that relate to your business and that you like. Consider words that communicate value, emotion, strength or uniqueness of your business.
  • Enter your top words into the generator.
  • Narrow the list even more by selecting relevant industry types.
  • Create a shortlist of all the ideas that appeal to you. Try to stick to less than 10 options. (This might be the hardest part with so many great choices offered in the generator.)
  • Narrow the lists based on available domains that appeal to you as well.
  • Share the ideas and gather feedback from the rest of your team.
  • Narrow down the options and pick the perfect name for your business.
