#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “hot”, “wild”, “spice” and “wild”, you can see that while these words can be related to ginger, they also suggest that you can expect flavorful ginger products 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 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?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great ginger 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, 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:
This name conveys a happy, fresh product or brand.
This name conveys a product that is organic and clean.
This name conveys a product that is exotic and fresh.
This name conveys a product that is organic and possibly green.
#4) Check if it’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great ginger business 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.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at some successful ginger businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Chimes Gourmet has a slogan, “It’s music for your mouth!” which helps the customer understand that “chimes” refers to a bell-like instrument. The addition of “gourmet” suggests that the ginger products made by this company must match a very high standard.
The Ginger People conveys the image of red headed people. In this case, ginger really does mean ginger root. And the addition of “people” allows the company freedom to leave what they are and do undefined.
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 works 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 ginger terms like spicy, hot, or zest. 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 ginger business named “The Ginger People”.
This name can convey several ideas, one of which may be a group who loves ginger. At a deeper level though, this name represents the American couple who started the company along with the many ginger farmers they work with in China, Fiji, Indonesia, and Peru.
3. How to make a more memorable name
Creating a memorable business name is the first step in 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 product among your wave of competitors. Some tips to create a memorable name would be:
- Use rhythmic pronunciation or alliteration (Diced Spices, Golden Ginger)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Ginger Crystal – dried ginger looks like crystals)
- 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 ginger business names could be:
- Nuvane Ginger
- Alomos Ginger
- Nurilo Ginger
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 Ginger Blossom 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 Gilossom, Gissom, or Gingerom.
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.
