#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Haven”, “Whispering”, “Riverlands” and “Grove”. These are terms that paint the picture of a peaceful, happy farm. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

#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?

This name conveys a hidden, peaceful farm.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful cattle farm and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
King Ranch is a name fit for royalty. It’s a simple name, but it depicts a farm that is of a higher status, which is something that many cattle farmers want to achieve.
Anna Creek Station is a soothing name that depicts the imagery of a lovely creek. It’s also a name that isn’t obviously a cattle farm, which can draw the mind to idyllic images rather than the idea of mass amounts of cattle.
Independence Valley Farm is a name that depicts something many farmers want to achieve – independence. The ability to grow and/or raise their own food sources is something that draws many people to the trade.
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 cattle farm terms like cow, ranch or cattle. 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 cattle farm named “Independence Valley Farm”.
There are many people who want freedom from relying on 9 to 5 office jobs for money or grocery stores for their produce, and therefore turn to farming in order to seek independence from those things. This is a name that reflects that desire.
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 (Broken Brook Farms, Lost Cove Homestead)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Dairy Air – Dairy is something that is largely related to cows, so it wouldn’t work in many other kinds of names)
- 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 cattle farm names could be:
- Giladu Cattle Farm
- Unora Cattle Farm
- Olaku Cattle Farm
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 Cowboy Cattle 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 CowboyyCattle, CattleBoy Farms or Cowwboy Cattle.
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.
