#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Homemade”, “Nature”, “Golden” and “Raw”, you can see that while these words can be related to bakery business, they also suggest that you can expect a sweet, organic and tasty sort of bakery products 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.

#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:

Raw Wheat

Bread & Butter

Cake Time

Harvest Bakery

 

Removed Ideas:

Golden Flour

Grandma’s Homemade Bread

Nature’s Gift Bakery

Piece of Cake

Right From Oven

Just Baked

Golden Crust

Cinnamon Rolls

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great bakery business 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 since they 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:

Raw Wheat

This name conveys a premium and natural product.

Bread & Butter

This name conveys a simplicity in making a product with a great taste.

Cake Time

This name conveys a specialized and sweet product line.

Harvest Bakery

This name conveys a product that is organic and made from natural-ingredients only.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great bakery business 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 business names, let’s take a look at three successful bakery businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Du Pain et des idees Logo

Du Pain et des Idees communicates a premium bakery since it’s a fact that France is making the best bakery products. The name literally translates to ‘bread and ideas’ so potential customers will know exactly what they can find in this award-winning bakery. The name is very sound and easily brandable.

Sugar Bake Shop Logo | BusinessNameGenerator.com

Sugar Bakeshop, as the name, doesn’t radiate with creativity, but the name definitely tells potential customers what’s the business about. This business is specialized in making pies, cakes and other sweets that will appeal to individuals who’re looking to satisfy their sugar craves. The name is sound, on-point and brandable.

BPatisserie Logo

B.Patisserie started as a family business in France, but after gaining popularity it spread around the world. ‘Patisserie’ in the name communicates a strong relation to France and its baked goods. The business specializes only in making few French baked goods and a brandable name communicates it from the first sight.

5 Tips for naming your bakery business

The ideal business 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.

A typical pitfall most businesses run into is describing their business name too literally, using overused bakery terms like flour, dough 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 bakery business named “Elizabethan Desserts”.

Literally, this name conveys you’re buying desserts from a specialized business focusing only on making desserts. At a deeper level though, the name communicates with potential customers that they are getting only the highest quality desserts made by a real person who prepares desserts following traditional recipes. It’s always a good strategy to come up with the name that will instantly make a deeper and friendly connection between customers and business.

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 (Bread & Butter, Make Your Cake)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Harvest Bakery – Harvest is closely connected to wheat which is the main ingredient when it comes to bakery products.)
  • 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 bakery business names could be:

  • Bolinuvo Bakery
  • Opius Bakery
  • Maniva Desserts

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 Harvest Bakery 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 Harwest Bakery, HarvBakery or Harvesting Bakery.

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.
