#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Brainstorming on the words to use to qualify your business is quite important because this is the first representative of your business. I decided to use words like “Pour”, “Crave”, and Finesse to represent the necessity and beauty of coffee to everyday life. 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.

Lava Java

#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:

Great Bean

Morning Kick

Latte Love

Steaming Cups

 

Removed Ideas:

Better Beans

Proper Pour

Sip And Snack

Crave Cafe

Top Of The Mug

The Beanery

Finesse Coffee

Java Jive

Lava Java

Beananza

Beaneriffic

#3) Get some feedback

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

Morning Kick

This sounds like an early morning coffee to start the day.

Latte Love

This sounds like an exotic or posh coffee shop for coffee lovers or for couples.

Steaming Cups

This sounds like a hot coffee outlet or shop.

Great Bean

This sounds like a coffee beans producing or marketing company.

#4) Check if it’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great coffee 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 your 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 Coffee businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Starbucks Coffee Logo

Starbucks
Probably the most recognizable brand in the coffee world, Starbucks is named after the chief mate in Moby Dick. The character is named Starbuck and was the top choice, though there were alternative ideas (like Cargo House).

Panera Bread Logo

Panera Bread
The company was originally named St. Louis Bread. After an acquisition in 1997, it was renamed to Panera Bread. The word Panera has a Latin origin and it means bread basket. Panera Bread is known for its coffees, as well as for sandwiches, various types of bread and soups.

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Logo

The Coffee Bean &
Tea Leaf

This name is pretty much self-explanatory. The US company was founded in 1963 and ever since, it’s been providing its customers with a wide array of coffee and tea products.

5 Tips for naming your coffee 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 coffee terms like cappuccino, milky or creamy. 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 coffee business named “Starbucks”.

Literally, it is one of the biggest coffee brands, and it doesn’t use the word coffee at all but brings about the star quality and allows you to know you are getting value for your money.

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 (Lava Java, Better Beans )
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Space Coffee, space generally means outside earth, but in this context, it means coffee that is out of this world)
  • 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 coffee business names could be:

  • Beaneriffic
  • Beananza
  • Lava Java

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, if the plan was to use Missile Brew, changing it to just Missile or Miss Brew defeats the point of going through all that process to generate a name.

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.
