Creating A Great Business Name

You know how it is: you get a great business name idea and jump online to register a domain for it … only to find there is not just one name like yours, there are several names—or name derivatives—like yours, too.

Don’t fret. “Get creative,” says About.com’s entrepreneurial writer, Scott Allen. Another tip Allen suggests: Employ a thesaurus, too. Beware, though. Choose your name wisely. Chrysler learned that millions costly mistake when they unveiled their new Chevrolet Nova in the late 1970s—and no on in Mexico would buy the car—because “Nova” in Spanish means “no go.” Worse, still: Henry Ford, Jr. named the mid 1950s car with the vertical grill flop after his kid—Edsel.

With your new business, don’t get an Edsel or NoVa for it, as some websites that specialize in creating available domain names can craft this for you. The domain name search engine at www.makewords.com and other internet websites that brainstorm domain names can ensure ways to a great name for your site:

1. Play with names.  Take the first few letters of a combination of names from your family members, street signs or consult a baby name book—like St from Steve, Or from Orson and Nel from Nellie. There, you’ve got STORONEL  Or, something to that effect.

2. Research. What’s the Latin meaning of the name? How is it said in Greek? What’s the proper spelling in Hebrew? Remember, what may mean one definition in this country may take on a totally different—and sometimes insulting—meaning completely in another country or even said in another dialect.

3. And speaking of definitions … Hone in what your product is, does and stands out from the rest of the pack, and chose that one glowing, pivotal product gimmick as the domain name. Then you can register (and worry about) the company name, later. Think of Scott Golden’s rule of thumb: the Purple Cow Theory. Think about it: most cows are either brown, black or white, so if you saw a purple one in a field of all that brown, black or white cattle, you’d notice it, right? Cows are known not for milk alone.

4. Start reading everything. Bus signs, street signs, phone books, the table of elements, surnames.

5. Go Au Natural. Um, no, not naked, but back to nature. Orson Creek. Grey Seas Limited. Whatever works.

6. Get feedback—even if it’s on a name you hate. And this includes your own. Okay, so your own name’s hideous but you figured, what the heck, why not profit from it? Run it by your immediate family, anyway and see what they think, all the same. And, by the same token …

7. If you’re going to use their names—ASK! ‘Nuff said on that. And even if they still say no on the name use—regardless of the double-digit percentages they get from the royalties—move on.

8. Register your stuff, ideas and trademarks—if any—with the U.S. Copyright Office.  You may also want to look into your state’s registered offices for any name trademarks, copyrights or patents your idea may or may not be fringing upon. Also, register with your state as names that you will be doing business as, or known as a DBA, so that the IRS and other financial institutions can keep track with, for and yes, on you. For instance: If you have a Freddie-Eddie, a kid’s only night-light as your product, you may register the website name as your name spelled backwards—like NEVELE for ELEVEN or NEVAEH for HEAVEN—the do business in your given name, SBA whatever you have it spelled as, and register Fred-Ed.com, or something like that.

9. Consider registering .net and .info as domain names, too besides .com. Oh, sure, it’s not as glamorous as is a .com name—but it’s not as crowded and jockeying for web traffic space and branding recognition, either. And, if you’re looking to maximize your search engine places, .net and .info may be the way to go, since not many name brands have those tags to go by, either.

10. Get an EIN with the IRS. That’s an Employee Identification Number registered with the Internal Revenue Service. If you’re gun-shy in using your Social Security Number, they can assign an EIN to you. This way, you can use this for any and all business transactions you’ll be making with your new business.

11. Play with Colors, Shapes and Numbers. So, you’re still determined to get a .com with your name in it? That’s okay. More and more websites today have alphanumeric combinations to their domain names. Like the song by the Brothers Johnson called “Strawberry Letter #22”, some websites have letters and numbers working for them, too. As for a logo, like with a domain name, if you’re going to go on the international scale, make sure that logo is a universally accepted sign. Choose a light, bright color for your logo. A square with a smiley face may work if that smiley face is a rosy pink in most countries. If that “Have a Nice Day!” smiley face is square and yellow, though, you may have to take issue with those who own that kid called Squarepants.

Business Name Generator

NameStation.com Name Generator

Naming your business is one of the most important decisions you are facing when establishing a new company.

There’s a lot of room for creativity, but in order to have a truly unique, memorable and brandable name, you need to consider certain basics:

  1. You need a distinctive name that characterizes what your business does
  2. The name must be pronounceable, brandable and relatively short
  3. You want a name that has an available .com domain

While the first two are a matter of brainstorming and consulting with your friends or colleagues, getting the third one right can be an impossibly difficult task to encounter. With more than 50 million .com domains registered today, you can spend hours looking them up in the Whois database one-by-one, only to find that all the sensible ones are already taken. Fortunately there are the domain name suggestion tools, like http://www.NameStation.com/, that generate hundreds of name ideas instantly, and speeds up the domain name search process greatly.

Very often the names have nothing to do with the underlying business, or service, such as Kodak, Google, eBay. Remember, it’s the uniqueness of the name – you want to distinguish yourself from your competitors. Deep etymology is secondary compared to the uniqueness and brandability of the name.

Another way to decide on a domain name is to try to figure out what message you want to convey to people and combine a couple of short words together, that are easy to remember. Many small businesses prefer to use words that cleverly suggest qualities about the underlying product or service without describing them outright, such as Lending Tree for loans, Slenderella for diet food products, or The Body Shop for personal hygiene products. Such names can easily be generated with the NameStation.com Popular Affixes or Dictionary searches.

If you’ve found the perfect name for your business, you have to take the extra step to secure it by registering the domain name. Domain name registration is not something to be intimidated about. It is a straightforward process, where you just have to follow the step-by-step instructions given by your domain registration provider. All you need to know, is your contact information. No technical knowledge is required.
