#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Future”, “Technology”, “Jump” and “Progress”, you can see that while these words can be related to future, they also suggest that you can expect a progressive, advanced and global 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.
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 futuristic 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 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 marketing services that positively impact the business results.
This name conveys a development service that delivers the product with a unique, out-of-the-box thinking.
This name conveys a smart glasses that are high-quality and futuristic product.
This name conveys a development service that is produced using advanced technology providing customers with the edge over competitors.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great futuristic 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 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 futuristic businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
The Boring Company, is a great name as it conveys exactly what the company does and also provides a quite fun play on words. They’ve started boring underground tunnels across major cities in the US to help ease congestion and provide a new means of high-speed transportation for the public. On top of that, they also make Flamethrowers!
Zymergen is a company at the forefront of technology advancement, working on AI-based solutions across industries from Agriculture to Chemicals and Materials. It’s a great brandable name as it’s unique, memorable and still slightly conveys what their business is about. The word “Zym” relates to enzymes or fermentation and the word “Gen” connotes to something being produced or created.
Virgin Galactic is the business that’s made their name straight to the point explaining what is it about. The company offers private space travel and it’s one of the pioneers in the industry. The name definitely communicates trust, reliability, innovation while being extremely brandable and easy to remember.
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 futuristic terms like innovation, future or advance. 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 futuristic business named “Shopify”.
This name literally conveys the message of buying and the company is all about buying and selling using the Internet as a medium. The name is easy-to-remember, brandable and uses suffix ‘ly’ which became a trend among technology companies. At the deeper level, this is a great name for a shopping company since it translates unlimited possibilities at one place.
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 (Elevated Exploration, Space Station Systems)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (LightSpeed Exports – Light speed or speed of light is associated to the fastest movement known to this date and it’s extremely important that export companies provide goods on time.)
- 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 futuristic business names could be:
- Nolium Solutions
- Abios Agency
- Karilo Technology
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 LEAP Marketing 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 LEEP Marketing, LAEP Marketing or LEAPing Marketing.
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.
