Four steps to naming your admin business
This four-step process will help you name your admin business. In this example, I’m creating a name for a admin business that conveys a company that has administrators who are professional, competent, and efficient. Here’s each step I took in crafting these business names.

#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “secure”, “support”, “edge” and “thorough”. You can see that while these words can be related to administrator, they also suggest that you can expect competent administrative help from this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#2) Shortlist your ideas
Once you’ve developed a list of possible names, do an analysis of your ideas. Remove any names that could be hard to remember, spell or speak aloud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, are memorable and communicate your brand values, product or service to your target audience.
Here’s a quick checklist you can run your ideas through to help shorten your list of names:
- Is the name simple and easy to remember?
- Is the name easy to read and say aloud?
- Is the name different from competitors?
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great administrative business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid asking for feedback from family and friends as they are more likely to praise all your ideas but they aren’t your ideal customer.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What first comes to mind when you hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With your customer feedback you can now ask yourself, is the name still relevant? and does it represent your business the way you intended?
My customer feedback:
This name conveys an admin business with the best administrators available.
This name conveys an admin business that is discreet and efficient.
This name conveys a company of admins who carefully monitor the front line of the office.
This name conveys admins who are a positive support to their workplace.
#4) Check if it’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great admin business names on your list, in case any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if your name is available within your country/state. Also be sure to search if the name is available for Trademark and Domain Name Registration.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful admin businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Kelly Services achieves a personal connection with customers by having the founder in their business name. Their no nonsense name gives the appearance that they are a reliable, efficient company without any frills. Having been around since 1946 and now found around the globe, it’s easy to see that Kelly Services simple approach works for them.
Boldly is a statement that reflects the nature of successful business leaders, the nature of its staff, and the nature of the staffing industry. This company was initially Worldwide 101 but the perception it conveyed was that of a cheap call centre. Boldly is a name that gives hope to the future.
Flex Professionals is a business name that clearly conveys their service and business. Flex reflects the flexible, part-time nature of the staffing pool. And the people they have hired are all professionals, with 10 or more years of experience.
1. Do a competitor analysis
Doing a competitor analysis as your first step will save you a lot of time in the future. Knowing what names to avoid and understanding why and how your competitors business name works for them will help you in forming your own business names.
When analyzing competitors think about:
- What business or product values are they conveying in their business name? How does that work for them?
- Is there a trend in how these businesses are naming themselves? It’s best to avoid sounding like “just another one of those businesses”.
- Who does it best? Why does it work and how can I produce a better name?
2. Focus on naming your business, not describing it.
A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused admin terms like human resources and office support. A more effective business name should convey to customers your business and product values at a deeper level. Try name your business in a way that has a story behind it.
Let’s take for example a real admin business named “BELAY”.
Literally, this name means “to provide the support a climber needs to ascend.” You can’t get much more clear than that. The founders of BELAY give their clients the best support they can and have won numerous awards and recognitions for best workplace culture and one of the fastest growing companies.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step to getting inside a customer’s mind, a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks so they give extra thought to your business among the wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name are:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Office Project, Admin Advantage)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Office Boosters – boosters could mean several things and in this case, it means support and advocate)
- Keep it short and simple.
4. Try purchasing a brandable business name
Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but read and are pronounced well. They often use letter patterns of Vowel/Consonant/Vowel as these word structures are typically short, catchy and easy to say and remember. For example, some brandable admin business names could be:
- Nuvane Admin Professionals
- Alomos Admin Services
- Nurilo Admin Staff
You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com
5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another mistake business owners typically make is creating bad word combinations when they find out that their business name idea is already taken. For example, John names his business Gate Keepers and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Gaepers, Gatpers, and Gkeepers.
You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are not catchy, easily pronounceable or memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips we mentioned previously.
