#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by outlining the key benefits of your product and services and what will make it stand out. Write down words that can describe what you are offering. In my name ideas, words like “cream”, “café”, “Sweet” “Sip” and “fresh” can be related to coffee while portraying the branding and implementation of your set goals.

#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?

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful Cafe businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Barista Parlor achieves its customer’s connection by having a simple and unforgettable business name. The name represents the “all-artisan” vibe and the high-quality coffee being served in the outlet. Just by mentioning the name, the only image that comes to mind is a barista hard at work to give your quick morning fix.
Madcap coffee brings a personal connection with customers by having a goofy business name. Whilst the name doesn’t explain much about the quality or anything, the Cafe can be seen as exciting and fancy. This goes well with the cheerful mood and the intense aromatic coffee offered in the Cafe.
Cafe Grumpy has grown to be one of the most popular Cafe in the US. The name itself comes out ironic that you can’t help but check it out. Once you’ve visited, you’ll associate grumpy the love for coffee with a strong desire to pair it with good service.
5 Tips for naming your Cafe
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 coffee terms like dark, sweet or shop. 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 Cafe named “Barista Parlor”.
Literally, this name conveys you’re getting your coffee from a barista in a parlor. At a deeper level though, this is a great name that translates the history and values of the business.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in getting into a customer’s 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 (quick fix, Chai café, morning vibe coffee)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (mugshot coffee)
- 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 Cafe business names could be:
- Candola Cafe
- Accova Cafe
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 cream cafe 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 creamsweet café, creamist or creamery cafe.
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.
