#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like academy, hoop, ball, court, coach and star. These are words that sport fans, especially basketball fans, will identify with. They immediately result in a positive mental image, as well as some relevance. 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?

ProBall Academy

Coachify

Basket Champs

#3) Get some feedback

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

ProBall Academy

This name conveys professionalism and coaches who know what they’re doing.

Coachify

This name conveys sports training opportunities that are reliable and exciting.

Basket Champs

This name conveys a team seeking perfection and a high quality service.

Team Slam

This name delivers an immediate connection to basketball, terms that all fans will understand.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great basketball 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.

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful basketball businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Team Footprints Logo

Team Footprintz is a bit more abstract in terms of a basketball business name. The reference, however, is to the specific print that sports shoes (especially basketball shoes) leave. The name also has a youthful vibe to it, which makes it a great selection for communication with the respective target audience.

Elite Skills Logo

Elite Skills speaks of excellence and professional sports. Everybody wants to emulate the elite athletes we see on TV and during live sports events. The name conveys sophistication and professional knowledge. Thus, it wil appeal to anyone interested in practicing basketballs like the professionals in the field.

Pro Hoops Logo

Pro Hoops sounds somewhat more expected but it is still relevant and mellifluous in terms of sound. The basketball reference is obvious right from the start. Adding a term like pro or professional speaks of professionalism, knowledge and adherence to the best industry practices.

5 Tips for naming your basketball 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, relying on overused words like basket, hoop, court and coach. 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 business named Tru2Form Hoops.

For a start, the format makes the name a bit more difficult to understand by older people. The first word could be a reference to athletic performance, the essence of basketball, the physical form that basketball players need to maintain. The name is anything but literal, which is why it’s packed with meaning.

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 (Hoop Loop, Basket Masters, Beatz Basket)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Game Situation could speak of the numerous positions and the challenges that basketball players have to overcome during a single game)
  • 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 business names could be:

  • Athleta Basketball
  • Nuvane Basketball
  • Atmos Coaching

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 Basket Masters 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 MasteBasket, Baskters, Baters.

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.
