#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like razor, local, sharp, dude, comb and creative. These speak of the process of getting a shave or a haircut but also of the masculine energy linked to traditional barber shops. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

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:

The Cut Guys

The Snippers

American Barber Shop

Clipperz

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great barber shop 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:

The Cut Guys

This name conveys a sense of fraternity, a place where guys can go and have a good time.

The Snippers

This name conveys a bit of humor while still staying relevant to the field.

American Barber Shop

This name conveys traditions and a conventional approach towards setting up a barber shop.

Clipperz

This name conveys a niche experience that’s somewhat fresh and modern.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great barber shop 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 barber shops and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

The Men's Cave Logo

The Men’s Cave is a perfect name for a barbershop. This is a traditionally masculine spot, a place where guys can go for a cut and a bit of interaction with other dudes. The name has a rugged feel to it, which is an ideal choice when it comes to appealing to the right demographic.

Blade Craft Barber Academy Logo

Blade Craft Barber Academy is a more niche name. It’s a barber shop that also offers training. Both of these elements are obvious and presented in the title, allowing for some specialization. In addition, the title focuses on experience, skills and professionalism.

Str8 Choppin Logo

Str8 Choppin  features a creative element and a word that ensures industry relevance. While the name is a bit of a gamble due to the unusual spelling of straight, it pays off in terms of originality. The name is memorable and distinctive, which helps the barber shop establish its own image.

5 Tips for naming your barber shop

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, relying on overused words like chop, cut, razor and barber. 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 barber shop named Ace of Fades.

The reference here is obvious right from the start. Hence, the name has a ring to it. In the context, however, the word “fade” is used as a term referring to a technique in the world of male haircuts. The name offers some clever wordplay and relevance without going for the obvious.

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 (Mutts for Cuts, Chop Shop, Guy Groove)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Who’s Next Barber Shop is a clever name that’s indicative of a big clientele and a large community)
  • 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 barber business names could be:

  • Movao Barbers
  • Nuvane Barbers
  • Alomos Barbers

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 Razor Sharp 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 Razarp, Sharzor, RazShar.

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.
