There are a number of creative ways to come up with a name for your business or website. A quick google search for new business names and you will find loads of blogs and websites with a pre-made list of fun and relative names for the curious entrepreneur. Seems a little too easy, doesn’t it? Well, it is pretty easy if that is the direction you’re trying to take.
I’ve had some practice in this particular area and know the struggles of trying to find that perfect name. This is the name that you want to imagine sticking in the minds of millions of people. So instead of scrolling through the countless list of names that people have selected for you, try coming up with your own. It takes time and consideration when choosing your name so don’t try to rush this process. The first step in finding your name is knowing what exactly your message is. What is your niche and how will your name tie into that? Most people get stuck on this part because they haven’t taken the necessary time to sit down and narrow their passions to specifics. Finding your niche is key to creating your name.
The most creative way I have found in making a new name is by using one of the biggest sources of definition. Often when we are trying too hard to find something, we never accomplish finding what we were really looking for. To come up with a name for your business you have to put in the work. Get fun with words. Go to your search engine and type in a word or words specific to your niche and look them up in the online dictionary. Look up the words synonym and also words related to that specific word. Put two words together if you want a two-word name. I found by using this exact method, you improve your chances of creating a unique name rather than a name that was thought up in the mind of another. Moreover, you get to experience the gratification of coming up with it on your own. Your name defines your mission and your mission defines you.
Key Things To Remember:
- Finding a name takes time, don’t rush the process.
- Pick a few names that stick out to you and then narrow it down to the one that you can’t stop thinking about.
- Be creative! You took the brave step towards a new future and never-ending possibilities. Have fun with the beginning stages.
