10 things to consider when naming your business
The name of your company distinguishes your company, products or services from its rivals in the eyes of your customers and potential customers. A company's name can be derived from other words (often, English or Latin) or it can be a made-up word. In fact, many famous company names have unique name etymologies.
If you want to stand out from your competitors, stay far away from free company or business name generators because you'll end up with a generic, uninspiring name.
Here are the 10 things you should consider when deciding on a new name for a company or business:
- Think about what you want your company name to convey.
- Brainstorm to identify name possibilities.
- Keep the name short, simple, and easy to write and remember.
- Avoid names that are too narrow or literal.
- Avoid decisions by committe but do test the name with others.
- Avoid plain words.
- Be careful with geographic names.
- Avoid obscure words.
- Avoid trends.
- Consider whether you can register a domain and obtain a trademark.

We provide compelling brand stories ...
Brand story provided by creative mt1895.
'A great tagline (bonus) would be: You can't say Asabasa Spice Co. without first saying AHH. Asabasa is a fun word I like to say when I am feeling great and relaxed. It has no meaning and is not associated with any language from my research. The name is a palindrome which can be spelled and pronounced the same forward or backwards - which means no matter which way you look at it, it still says AHHH (HOW COOL IS THAT!) The name can indeed be trademarked in the USA for sure. It can be branded and it surely has character & personality. The name is essentially just ONE word and only seven characters and uses only three letters.'
We explain why the name is memorable ...
'Clink has a double meaning - the sound two glasses make during CHEERS. :) And, it's slang for jail - a reference to the historic building your brewery occupies. The name is fun, easy to say, spell and remember, and the reference to a sound 'clink' and to water makes it a memorable name.'
We explain the origins of the name ...
'The name has only 5 letters, it pronounces equally in many languages and there is a nice meaning to it (latin for castle, fortress).'
