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:

VillageGrill

The name conveys tasty and locally-made hotdogs.

GrillVrill

The words rhyme making the name unique, easy to remember and catchy.

HopDog

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 hot dog businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Ted’s Hot Dogs Logo

Ted’s Hot Dogs achieves a personal connection with customers by including the founder’s names in the business name. This works very well since it helps to build trust and gain unmeasurable customer loyalty. The name also sounds professional and is very brandable.

Shake Shack Logo

Shake Shack is a very catchy and memorable name for a great hot dog business. The words rhyme and that is why this name is fun to pronounce and easy to remember. It perfectly represent the great products offered by this business.

Happy Dog Logo

Happy Dog conveys that this business is focused on making its customers happy by providing the best hot dogs. Many customers can remember this name and reach out to it every time they need a hot dog.

5 Tips for naming your hot dog business

The ideal business name should be simple, memorable and convey a meaning all at the same time. Here are my 5 tips to keep in mind when developing your business names.

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 terms. 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 hot dog business named “Grandma’s Hot Dogs “.

Literally, the name means that the Hotdogs belong to grandma but on a deeper level, it means that the hot dogs are tasty just like most dishes cooked by grandmas.

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 (Top Dogs)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Delico Dogs – Delico as in Delicious)
  • 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 Hot Dog business names could be:

  • Nuvane Hot Dogs
  • Alomos Hot Dogs
  • Nurilo Hot Dogs

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 Bumble Dogs 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 BumbillDogs, Bumblegs or BummbleDogs.

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.
