My customer feedback:

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful aerospace & defense contractors businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Airbus gives the business a friendly face. Consequently, it’s one that can gain popularity more easily. Furthermore, the name is easy to remember, simple to locate when clients need it, and it presents a good logo opportunity.
Boeing What’s interesting about this name is that most people associate it with flight that takes place within Earth. Many don’t realize that it also represents aerospace activity as well. The use of a simple name also makes it easy to remember.
Blue Origin is an interesting name because it reminds us of where we came from. As a result, we get a larger sense of the progress we’ve made when we think about life emerging from the ocean and then traveling into space.
A company named after the businessman who founded the enterprise. The uniqueness of the name makes brand dilution impossible.
An aeroplane manufacturer. The name is a simple descriptor for how someone seeing a plane for the first time might describe it: as a flying bus.
The world’s largest manufacturer of aeroplanes, Boeing originates from the founding entrepreneur’s surname. This has lent to its uniqueness as a name which has now become synonymous with the commercial planes the entire world flies on.
“Breakthrough” is a common term in the film and entertainment industry – it is what all amateur actors want.
A simple, easy to remember and concise name. It not only sounds good, but it also establishes a link to the industry in which the company operates.
A defence contractor who is a creator of advanced weapons systems. The use of ‘systems’ in the company name alludes to exactly that.
Earth is known as the ‘blue planet’. It is the world where the human species ‘originated’ from. The company’s name implies that it’s only the beginning of humankind’s colonisation of space.
‘Virgin’ is an established brand and utilising it in a sub-brand of the holding company leans this reverence and public knowledge to a new offshoot.
The ‘founding’ father of the space industry, NASA which stands for National Aeronautics and Space Administration is a company that commands respect. The easy to remember acronym masks the highly descriptive name.
A healthcare service that targets military personnel. The name is a dead giveaway to what the company does, throwing out any risk of confusion.
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 words 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 honey terms like royal, tasty or sweet. A more effective business name should convey to customers your businesses 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 aerospace & defense contractors business named “Airbus”.
This is a name that provokes imagery of a space ship traveling through space, easily and happily. There is an air of comfort about it. Additionally, it’s also an easy name to remember.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customers mind and is also a task that’s easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks and give an extra thought on your product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Aerospace Abyss, Project Beyond
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Mayday Defense – Mayday is often a term used in regard to emergencies or other militaristic situations)
- 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 aerospace & defense contractors business names could be:
- Bulidu Aerospace
- Humaka Aerospace
- Vefuni Defense
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 Adrift Aerospace and finds out it’s already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Adriftt Aerospace, AdriftAero or Adrrift Aerospace.
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.
