#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Sweet”, “Spongy”, “Sugar” and “Flake”, you can see that while these words can be related to Cakes, they also suggest that you can expect a sweet, spongy and tasty sort of cakes from this business or brand. 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.
Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#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?

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?

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful honey businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Eileen’s Special Cheesecake
The name instantly puts emphasis on the delicious sweet temptation that the bakery specializes in – cheesecake. The name also tells who the owner of the cake company is. Eileen started baking in her apartment in 1973 and ever since, her name has been synonymous with quality.
The name of this company says it all. The bakery is known for some incredibly innovative and bold experiments in the world of cake making. It crafts unique wedding cakes that are characterized by dozens of exciting flavors and designs like no other.
This French company creates rustic, home-feel cakes. The word gateaux means cake in French. The bakery feels like your mom’s kitchen and it offers some truly decant and delicious cakes.
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 cake terms like royal, tasty or sweet. 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 cake business named “Grandma’s Kitchen”.
Literally, this name conveys you’re buying cakes from an old woman. At a deeper level though, the name is used to convey the traditional belief that grandmothers know the best recipes. The customers will, therefore, get the feeling that the business sells sweet and locally made cakes.
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 (Creamy Creations, Sugar Booger)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Deli Cakes – Deli as in Delicious)
- 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 cake business names could be:
- Tamu Cakes
- Alomos Cupcakes
- Nurilo Cakes
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 Yummy Creations 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 YumbyCreations, Yummreations or YummmCreations.
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.
