#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Voltage”, “Surge”, “Wire” and “Static”, you can see that while these words can be related to electrical, they also suggest that you can expect an innovative, reliable and eco-friendly type of product or service from this business or brand. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

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 electrical company 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 since 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 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:
This name conveys a premium service that focuses on renewable energy.
This name conveys an innovative product that uses a renewable solar energy.
This name conveys an innovative product that emphasises the eco-friendly and renewable type of energy.
This name conveys a personalized and reliable electrical service.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great electrical company 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 you’re 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 electrical businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Tesla Electric Company
This business pays homage to Nikola Tesla – a scientist who is sometimes being called the patron of modern electricity. Tesla was the first to uncover the power of the alternating current and he almost made it possible to transfer energy through the air itself.
Zeus Power Electrical Services
In the Greek mythology, Zeus is the god of thunder and lighting. The company adopts a pretty interesting approach towards its name selection. For a start, Zeus is a god. Adding “power” to the title is also linked to positive connotations.
A company that works with both residential and commercial customers. As the name suggests, this brand offers sustainable and environmentally-conscious solutions to its customers.
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 electrical terms like circuit, power or current. 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 electrical business named “Tesla Electric Company”.
This business pays homage to Nikola Tesla – a scientist who is sometimes being called the patron of modern electricity. Tesla was the first to uncover the power of the alternating current and he almost made it possible to transfer energy through the air itself. The name is extremely sound, easy-to-remember and brandable.
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 (Solarix Systems, Emerald Electric)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (CLEAN Energy – Clean represents an eco-friendly and renewable type of energy.)
- 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 electrical company names could be:
- Lipine Electric
- Abonis Technology
- Ukarilo Systems
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 Wire Guy 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 Wirguy, Wirre Guy or Wired Guy.
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.
