#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Brainstorming hard on the words to use to qualify your business is quite important because this is the first representative of your business. I used words that denotes height, vision and efficiency because this is what a standard drone is about. 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 drone 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, they 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 gives the illusion of a clear vision and strong instrument like with the Eagle.
This sounds like the latest technology and innovation.
This sounds like drones sold at a reduced price.

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 drone businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
This name isn’t too difficult to decipher – it’s an amalgamation of going and professional. GoPro founder Nick Woodman found out during a vacation that only professional surfers could capture high quality, action footage. Thus, his first prototypes were inspired by the mantra of going professionals and getting results like the seasoned surfers.

The drone developer from the Netherlands hasn’t chosen the most creative name out there but the brand makes it clear what its primary focus is right from the start.
The terms air and robotics seem to be pretty prominent among drone companies. This is the formula that the Israeli manufacturer has also adopted as far as choosing its 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 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 drone terms like cloud, distant or control. 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 drone business named “Nocturnal Drone”.
Literally, this name conveys the fact that this is a drone that could be operated at night or well-suited to night use.
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 (Eagles Eye, Drone Clone)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Nocturnal Drone: nocturnal simply relates to night use, but in this name, it is adapted to mean a drone that can function in minimal lighting)
- 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 drone business names could be:
- Optrek Sights
- Novotek Drones
- Fluetta Media
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 Drone Watch, using DroWa or DroneWat does not rightly qualify or represent the brand.
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.
