5 Styles of

Effective Names

When coming up with a name for your startup, rebrand, product, or just about anything else, it’s always very difficult to determine exactly where to start. We believe that the first step in creating a great brand name is defining the underlying tone of your brand -- aligning your brand with your audience and your strategic plan.

Pragmatic Names

Pragmatic Names, especially of the descriptive style, are very popular, as many people believe that they help reduce marketing costs by explaining your offer or value right in the name. Examples of Pragmatic Names are PayPal, PlanetFitness, Netflix.

Modern Names

Modern Names sounds different and fresh. In this way, they drive interest and even excitement. Modern Names are very popular with tech startups as well as fashion brands. Some examples of Modern Names are Hulu, Shopify, and Zara.

Leading with emotion can be a great brand strategy. Emotions are a powerful way to rapidly connect. Strong emotions can also aid in memory and brand recall. Greenpeace and Triumph Motorcycles are great examples of Emotional Names.

Classic Names

Classic Names are timeless and preeminent. By aligning your brand with companies that have already built a brand tone that you’d like to emulate, you can springboard your success. Often times, you’ll find classic names take on different forms from industry to industry. For example, The Vanguard Group and L'Oréal are both classic brands, the former in the finance space, the latter in cosmetics/skincare.

Essential Tips For Naming A Business

After naming over 20,000 companies, we have put together these tips that can help you name your business.

A Name is a Strategic Tool

Think of your brand name as more than just a word that identifies your brand. Your brand name is actually a tool that can help propel you to success. Make sure it sets a solid foundation for your brand to build on. It should capture what sets you apart, a tool only your unique brand can interact with, because it was made to fit your brand..

Resonate with Audience

Your business name is the first point of connection between you and your audience. Make sure that your business name resonates with your audience’s values, needs, and expectations. This will help them remember your business name, pass it along to others, and maintain a positive brand association in their minds.

Make it Remarkable

Your brand name should be memorable and captivating. You can do this by coming up with interesting sound combinations using poetic techniques, using intriguing references or metaphors, or tying yourself to impactful visuals. A remarkable brand name helps you move your business forward because people are more likely to return to a remarkable brand and pass along a remarkable name.

Easy to Spell

When coming up with a business name, make sure that your name is easy to spell. When people hear it aloud, they should know how to write it down. Even intentional misspellings should be simple and intuitive. Otherwise, you risk confusing customers and losing out on their business when they cannot find out more online after hearing about your brand.

Easy to Hear

If you were in a crowded bar with a friend telling them about your new business, and you shared the name “Egg Sport,” would they hear “Export,” or maybe even “Expert?” Your name should not have to be repeated a few times and then spelled out to be shared. This discourages word-of-mouth referrals, which are a valuable tool that help drive your business to success!
