#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Brainstorming on the words you want to use to represent your business is very important because this is the first impression your business makes on your potential customers. I used words like compute, master and new age to show the functionality and task orientation. 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?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great computer 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 your 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 sounds like a computer model made to suit a particular user.
This refers to high-quality technology.
This sounds like a technology service provider.
This sounds like an easy usage device.
#4) Check if it’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great computer 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.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful computer businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
HP (Hewlett-Packard) uses actual names, and this creates a sense of relativity. The name is also easily shortened to a memorable and easily remembered acronym.
Acer sounds like a fast and effective computer. The name is short and simple. Acer sounds like racer which brings speed and effectiveness to mind.
Gateway Computers is a name that creates a sense of entry into the tech world. It also exemplifies entry into new possibilities.
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 words like fast, byte or browse. 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 computer business named “Acer”.
Literally, this is a real computer company that uses just one word to represent their product, and one word does quite enough justice in representing their brand and what they have to offer.
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 (New Network, Common Compute)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Monumental Computer Agency: Monumental here represents a significant and essential agency as against spectacular happenings)
- 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 computer business names could be:
- Apogee Computers
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, shortening New Network to New Net doesn’t even give an idea of what type of product or service the company renders.
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.
