#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like safe, pampered, VIP, in and out and quick fix. People are very careful when it comes to the quality of car services being offered. These words create a sense of security and competence, building the reputation of the car garage. 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:
- Does the name convey a relevant meaning?
- Does the name avoid overused words or cliches?
#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?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great car garage 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:
This name conveys a sense of warmth and attention to detail, something that car owners will enjoy.
This name conveys a quick service, something much needed in the case of an emergency.
This name conveys an association that automobile enthusiasts will get immediately.
This name conveys reliable services that are delivered within a reasonable timeframe.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great car garage 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 car garage businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Precision Transmissions is not the most creative business name but it works in the context of car garages. A potential customer will instantly know the range of services that the mechanics specialize in. This approach enables the garage to differentiate itself from the competition through niche specialization.
Repairs on Wheels is another specialized name that tells clients what the nature of the service is. At the same time, the name has a humorous vibe to it, which contributes to a bit of memorability and distinctiveness. Again, this isn’t an especially crafty name but it works in the context of the industry.
Champion Auto Clinic works in several ways. The word champion is a synonym for winner, which is definitely a positive association for potential customers to have. Clinics are connected to precision, expertise and detail-oriented work. Both of these are an ideal choice for a garage that wants to establish itself as a quality service provider.
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 car garage words like mechanic, repair, emergency, quick, affordable and automobile. 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 honey business named Gold Wing Motors.
There’s a literal meaning but the title also carries a somewhat subtler connotation. Gold and golden often refers to a standard of excellence. A wing allows for quick and efficient transportation. Finally, motors shows that the business operates in the automotive field. All of these work together to make the title quite meaningful.
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 (Garage Guys, Groovy Garage, Fire Tire)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Wrench Masters needs to be examined in the context of an automobile garage industry to make sense)
- 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 honey business names could be:

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 Speedy Garage 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 Speedirage, Garagdy, Speage.
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.
