#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Lotus”, “Magnolia”, “Blooms” and “Willow”, you can see that these words are all related to nature and can be paired with exotic store concepts like “Gala” or “Boutique” to create a BoHo vibe. 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

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 BoHo 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:

Birdie’s Boutique

This name not only brings about natural imagery, but the term “Birdie” can also be used as a nickname. This gives the business a more personal feel.

Lotus Loft

This versatile name can be used for a variety of different businesses. It also offers a catchy name due to the repeating “L” sounds.

The Magnolia Market

This name combines the natural imagery of the magnolia with some delightful alliteration.

Gaia’s Grocery

This name brings an earthly vibe to the concept of groceries. It’s an appealing concept to those who want fresh, organic groceries.

#4) Check It’s available

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

Tree Of Life achieves a sense of nature and oneness. This name reminds customers of the goals of the business, including being earth-friendly and creating peace between the needs of people and the needs of the Earth.

5 Tips for naming your BoHo 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 BoHo terms like Bohemian, Eco or hippie. 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 BoHo business named “The Hemp Temple”.

This is a name that does two things. To begin with, it gives customers an idea about what to expect in their products – hemp. Secondly, it uses a rhyming name to stay locked in the minds of customers.

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 (Hemp Temple, Free People
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Earthstock – Combines the concept of earthiness with an event that fans of the BoHo trend will often be familiar with.)
  • 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 BoHo business names could be:

  • Ruhuna BoHo
  • Yadana BoHo
  • Hukadu BoHo

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 Lotus BoHo 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 LotussBoHo, LotuBoHo or LottusBoHo.

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.
