#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Rapid”, “Trek”, “Vacation” and “Travel”. These terms provide the idea that the experience will be convenient as well as combining that with the idea of renting a car for something fun like a vacation. 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:

Wheel Steals

Wandering Wheels

Drive And Jive

Get Far Cars

Car Castle

Rent And Run

Rapid Rentals

Rent-A-Ride

Day Driver

TempTravel

Show On The Road

Get Going

Delta Driving

Auto Away

Awesome Auto

Vigorous Vehicles

VehiVille

Trek Card

Vacation Navigation

Transit And Travel

#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:

Wandering Wheels

Day Driver

Get Going

VehiVille

 

Removed Ideas:

Wheel Steals

Drive And Jive

Get Far Cars

Car Castle

Rent And Run

Rapid Rentals

Rent-A-Ride

TempTravel

Show On The Road

Delta Driving

Auto Away

Awesome Auto

Vigorous Vehicles

Trek Card

Vacation Navigation

Transit And Travel

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great car rental 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:

Wandering Wheels

This name clues potential customers in to the knowledge that the company is designed for those who are “wandering” or in other words, traveling.

VehiVille

This name is shortened from “vehicle ville” to make it easier to remember, and it implies a whole city of cars for customers to choose from.

Get Going

This is a name for when you want to simply get the point across and get customers a car so they can get going to wherever they need to.

Day Driver

This is a name for when customers just need something for the day.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great car rental 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.

Check Domain Availability

Competitor Name Analysis

To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful car rental businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Bunk Campers logo

Bunk Campers uses a name that applies specifically to campervans that customers can make use of while they are traveling. It’s a simple name that veers away from typical vehicle rental name options.

FireFly Car Rental logo

Firefly Uses unique imagery and a name that isn’t the standard “X rental cars” convention. Instead, customers have to look a little closer to find out what the name means.

Ace Car Rentals logo

Ace Rent-A-Car – Many are aware of this company, and the name is one that makes it simple for customers to return to. The term ace also presents the idea that this is one of the best rental car options.

5 Tips for naming your car rental 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 car rental terms like rent, vehicle or car. 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 Car Rental business named “Firefly”.

Customers have to dig deeper in order to find out what this business offers, which can help to get some in the door a little more easily. It’s also a name that will stand out among other car rental companies.

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 (Car Castle, Transit and Travel)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Auto Away – This name refers to cars as well as the idea of getting away)
  • 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 car rental business names could be:

  • Hadera Car Rentals
  • Mudara Car Rentals
  • Takera Car Rentals

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 Classic Car Rentals 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 ClassiRentals, RentalClass or ClassiccRentals.

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.
