#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “magic”, “actor”, “stage”, and “disguise”. You can see that while these words can be related to costumes, they also suggest that you can expect a wide selection of costumes from this business. 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:

Costume Haven

Masquerade

Spirit of the Stage

The Actor’s Wardrobe

Grandma’s Attic

Magic, Mascots & More

Costume Keepers

Delighted Disguises

Masked Adventures

Charmed Garb

OnCue Costumes

Wigged

Superhero & Villains

Phantom of the Party

The Novel Shop

Charmed Alley

Embellished

Spiffy’s Costume Studio

Alice’s World of Wonder

Dressed to Conceal

#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 names:

  • 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:

Masquerade

Magic, Mascots & More

OnCue Costumes

Alice’s World of Wonder

 

Removed Ideas:

Costume Haven

Spirit of the Stage

The Actor’s Wardrobe

Grandma’s Attic

Costume Keepers

Delighted Disguises

Masked Adventures

Charmed Garb

Wigged

Superhero & Villains

Phantom of the Party

The Novel Shop

Charmed Alley

Embellished

Spiffy’s Costume Studio

Dressed to Conceal

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great costume store 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 as they are more likely to praise all your ideas and they may not be your ideal customer.

Be sure to ask questions like:

  • What 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, does it represent your business the way you intended?

My customer feedback:

Masquerade

This name conveys a fun place that has masks and fancy costumes.

Magic, Mascots & More

This name conveys a store that has a wide variety of costumes.

Alice’s World of Wonder

This name conveys a store that has costumes that are out of this world.

OnCue Costumes

This name conveys a store with costumes for stage actors.

#4) Check if it’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great costume store names on your list in case 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 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 costume stores and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

The Horror Dome Logo

The Horror Dome is a creative way to say that this business sells spooky Halloween costumes. It sounds like it may be too frightening for young children so we can assume this costume store has costumes targeted for adults. Plus it has higher prices than the average Halloween costume making it above and beyond your average costume store.

Costume Craze Logo

Costume Craze suggests a fun store that is crazy for costumes. This costume business has a huge selection of costumes for the whole family. Although this is a family-run business, the name doesn’t suggest that at all.

EZCosplay Logo

EZCosplay made their name straight to the point so you know exactly what they do. Specializing in cosplay and anime costumes, this business name lets you know that you’ll have an easy (EZ) time finding the perfect costume. They come across as a trendy company, selling some of the most popular costumes of today.

5 Tips for naming your costume store

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 name.

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 competitor’s business name works for them will help you in forming your own business name. 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 costume terms like spirit, superhero, and Halloween. A more effective business name should convey to customers your business 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 costume store named “Hogtown Mascots”.

Literally, this name conveys the fact that this store, located in Hogtown, sells mascot costumes. But where is Hogtown? It’s a nickname for Toronto and a nickname is a great idea for a costume store. This store has made and sold custom mascot costumes globally since 2006.

3. How to make a more memorable name

Creating a memorable business name is the first step to getting inside your customer’s mind, a task easier said than done. Your business name should aim to stop a customer in their tracks so they give extra thought to your store among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:

  • Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Charmed Garb, Magic, Mascots & More)
  • 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 costume store names could be:

  • Nuvane Costumes
  • Alomos Costumes
  • Nurilo Costumes

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 OnCue Costumes 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 Oostumes, Oncumes or CueCumes.

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.
