#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 green and eco 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, 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 sounds like a source of ecological information.
This sounds like an agricultural company that deals with technology for farming.
It sounds like a waste management and recycling company.
This sounds like a company that uses biological organisms to generate energy.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great green and eco 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 green and eco businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Beyond Meat recognizes the importance of animals to the environment and their name represents just that, indicating that animals are more than just meat without using those exact words.
Ecoenergy represents clean energy, and the name is straightforward enough to be memorable but still detailed enough to show what they are about.
Seventh Generation is all about making the environment better for future generations, and their name represents just that, showing the importance of preservation and conservation for the sake of generations to come.
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 green and eco terms like fertile, germinate or biohazard. 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 green and eco business named “Seventh Generation”.
Literally, their name does justice to what the brand is about without using too many words. The brand cares about preservation for the sake of the future, so adding generation to their name signifies that, and seven is usually seen as a number for perfection.
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 (Grow Green, Green Code)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Mother Nature, mother refers to a maternal figure, but in this case, it is used to refer to the mystical creature that nurses and grows nature)
- 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 green and eco business names could be:
- Greenmoulds Services
- Agrowex Services
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, do not try to change Simply Green to SimGre due to unavailability. It would be more productive to just find a new name using the steps above
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.
