#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Page”, “Cover”, “Reading” and “Story”, you can see that anyone reading these words can easily tell that they are related to books. 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:

Book Bound

Book Worms

Golden Books

Booksy

#3) Get some feedback

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

Book Bound

The words rhyme making the name catchy , memorable and brandable.

Book Worms

This name is easy to remember and likely to get customer attention

Golden Books

This name conveys premium products that customers would love.

Booksy

This name is short and unique making it brandable.

#4) Check It’s available

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

Random House Logo

Random House
Currently one of the world’s biggest book companies, Random House got its name in 1927. Founders Donald Klopfer and Bennett Cerf decided to publish some books and because there was no pattern in the types of titles, they chose the name Random House for their publishing business.

HarperCollins Logo

HarperCollins
The company was originally known as Harper and it was named after founders James and John Harper. Eventually, the name was changed a couple of times – to Harper & Brothers and Harper & Row. The company was acquired by NewsCorp, which also acquired the British William Collins & Sons. A merger between the two led to the current name.

McSweeney’s Logo

McSweeney’s
In his childhood, founder Dave Eggers and his mom Heidi McSweeney Eggers received multiple letters from a man who claimed to be their relative. The man was an artist called Timothy McSweeney and it was eventually found out that he suffered from mental illness. Dave Eggers later on said that he had named the book company after the letter sender.

5 Tips for naming your book company

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 terms. 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 book company named “Now You Can Read “.

At a deeper level, this name suggests that the company was started to cater for people who previously had no access to books but can now access them. It could be that their books are affordable or even free for all.

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 (Book Bound, Cover Cave)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Libo Club- Libo as in Library)
  • 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 book company names could be:

  • Nuvane Books
  • Soma Books
  • Nurilo Books

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 Pompous Books 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 PompoBooks, PompleBook or Pompook.

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.
