#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
The very first thing to brainstorm about are the words that would fit into your business name idea. In my case, I used words like “New”, “Luxury”, and “Task” to denote up to date, useful and fancy gadgets. These words bring a picture of effectiveness and goal oriented devices to mind. The purpose of choosing the right words is to make your target audience visualize the kind of services or products you are offering.

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
After shortlisting your ideas, it’s time to get an outside opinion on your choices of names. This is important because you need to know what the names sound like to your target audience and except your target audience is your family, you shouldn’t be getting your feedback from them.
Be sure to ask questions like:
- What first comes to mind when you first hear the name?
- How would you spell it?
With your customers’ 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 something that gets the job done.
This sounds like a fresh invention.
This name sounds like it’s instilling trust.
This sounds like a place for affordable gadgets.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great gadget 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.
Check Domain Availability
Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful gadget businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Apple has always signified something healthy and active. It is also short and easy to remember and spell. It somehow also brings wholeness to mind because of the fruit itself.
Amazon is a beautiful place with an abundance of everything; using this name would easily signify safety, availability, and wealth. This name could also very well mean strength.
Microsoft is a name that instantly brings softwares to mind; it also helps to visualize what the company is about and the type of services they offer.
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.
As much as you want your target audience to know what your company is about; trying to explain it is not the way to go. You should find a name that tells a story and communicates with the target audience without being literal.
Let’s take for example a real gadget business named “Apple”.
Literally, this tells you that you are purchasing a product that is unique and durable without using those exact words.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step into getting your target audience to know and remember your business. This is however not as easy as it sounds. Here are a few ways to ensure your business name has a lasting effect on your customers:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Qwertical Gadget, Techizio Gadgets)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Geeked Gadget, Geeked is another word used for nerds)
- 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 gadget business names could be:
- Appgo Gadgets
You can find a full list of Brandable business names at Domainify.com
5. Avoid combining words just to create a unique name.
Another costly mistake business owners make is combining different words when they find out their desired name is unavailable instead of starting all over again and creating another business name. For example, Budget Gadgets should not be shortened to Bud Gadget because this doesn’t have the same meaning and it doesn’t convey the same message.
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.
