Four steps to naming your animation company

There are various factors to consider when naming an animation company and as much as the aim is to be creative and unique, we do not want to end up with a name that the target audience cannot relate with. Our animation company naming guide will help you brainstorm quality name ideas, streamline your options and analyze different name samples in line with your brand goals and target audience.

#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

This is phase one in naming your business, and you have to think of words that describe what your business entails. An animation company is about creating visually stimulating media, and the name must also generate a sense of excitement and adventure for the target audience. This means we have to avoid using rigid words. Here are a few words I decided to use: Virtual, Digital, and World. While these words can be related to animation, they also represent being visually stimulated and also represent a creative space.

If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.

#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 name:

  • 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?

My Shortlist:

Virtual Handshake

Laser Studios

Flash Imagery

Alternate Universe

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great animation company names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, are more likely to praise all your ideas and they aren’t your customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
  • How would you spell it?

With you’re customer feedback you can now ask yourself is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Virtual Handshake

This name sounds like a type of exchange and denotes a two-way communication.

Laser Studio

This denotes a fast and fun place.

Alternate Universe

This represents a unique world of its own.

Flash imagery

This sounds like a fast display of pictures.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great animation company names on your list, in case your any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if you’re name is available within your country/state, also be sure to search if the name is also available for Trademark and Domain name Registration.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential name ideas, take a look at the successful animation companies and examine how their names work for them and why it does.

Cartoon Network Logo

Cartoon Network Studios is direct and straightforward. It clearly communicates what the company is about and what to expect. The word studio also communicates a physical structure of some sort and network suggests a collection of different works.

Dreamworks Logo

Dreamworks Animation talks about how their work is all about making fantasies come true and bringing the imaginary world into reality. The name is also direct as it clearly states what kind of dreams are being brought to reality, which is animation, and also, what the company is entirely about.

Industrial Light & Magic Logo

Industrial Light & Magic conveys something of the magical realm, and light denotes something that is visually stimulating and entertaining. A combination of light and magic also represents a world where possibilities are expanded, and it is also quite catchy.

5 Tips for naming your animation company

The ideal company name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

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.

This is a trap many businesses fall into when they try to describe their businesses. It leads to having overused terms like visual and exciting. A more suitable business name should communicate your values at a deeper level and resonate with your audience.

Let’s take for example a real animation company named “Dreamworks Animation”.

Literally, this conveys the fact they are bringing your dreams into reality and making your fantasies come true.

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 (Digital deals or Vital virtual)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Alternate Universe: Alternate means a different type, but when combined with Universe it means a different type of world.)
  • 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 animation company names could be:

  • Virtullio Virtuals
  • Velp Digitals
  • Vork Media

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, when you realize that Digital desk isn’t available, try to resist the urge to go for a name like Digitables or Didesk.

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.
