#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like classy, fun, fly and happy. In this field, you want your business to be connected to a positive mood and a happy emotion. You want words that will sound cheerful and fun. 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 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?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great balloon 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, 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:
This name conveys excitement and party mood.
This name conveys balloons that feature different patterns and that will be suitable for any occasion.
This name conveys joy and pure bliss.
This name conveys going to the circus, clowns and other festive aspects of a celebration (especially for children).
#4) Check It’s available

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.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful Balloon businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Bubbles of Joy: what are balloons if not bubbles of joy? While this is a pretty simple product, it’s almost always tied to a wonderful celebration and a positive emotion. The name this company has chosen is a reference to this precise aspect of balloon usage.
Balloonitude is a mashup between balloon and attitude. For a start, the name is catchy and easy to remember. It’s also perky and feisty. These are definite qualities one would want to have attached to their brand and a lot of the appeal starts with the right name selection.
Floating Art Balloon Decor offers a bit of niche specialization. As a general rule of thumb, you have to seek options to differentiate yourself from the competition. This company has accomplished the goal by telling potential clients exactly what kind of balloon service/product is available.
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, relying on overused words like decoration, party, clown, blow and air. 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 balloon business named Enchanted Designs.
The company makes balloon decorations. Enchanted speaks of fairytales and magic. This is precisely the kind of decoration you’d want for your party. The name is indirect but it still inspires and tells potential customers they’ll get something fantastic out of the interaction.
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 (Wubble Bubble, Blow & Flow, Party Arty)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Pump it Up refers to the action of blowing and inflating balloons)
- 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 balloon business names could be:
- Groffon Balloons
- Swiperly Balloons
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 Balloon Boss 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 BossBalloon, Balloss, Bossoon.
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.
