#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Scoops”, “Cool”, “Chilly” and “Toppings”. You can see that while these words can be related to Ice cream, they also help to show some of the fun words that people tend to associate with this kind of business. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

  • 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 avoid overused words or cliches?

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great ice cream 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:

Scoops o’ Joy

This name brings to mind a fun place to add some pleasure to an otherwise boring day. It sounds like the kind of place that gives friendly service and great ice cream.

Ice Cream Heaven

This name conveys the idea of being somewhere people can go to enjoy some ice cream and forget all about their worries or concerns for as while.

Ice Cool Rules

This name gives the idea that it is a trendy ice cream business that lots of people love going to.

The Chilly Connection

This is all about a business that brings people together to share their love of a good ice cream in a relaxed setting.

#4) Check It’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great ice cream 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 ice cream businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Haagen-Dazs Logo

Haagen-Dazs
While the name sounds Danish, it is actually invented. Haagen-Dazs was started by Reuben Mattus who wanted to pay tribute to Denmark for its treatment of Jews during World War II. Early ice cream labels also featured an outline of the Danish map.

Carte D’Or Logo

Carte D’Or
Another incredibly prominent ice cream brand. Carte d’Or means golden card and the company has been rebranded several times through the years to have a logo reminiscent of the name. it speaks of the quality of the ice cream.

Dreyer’s Logo

Dreyer’s
This is probably the ice cream company that has the least imaginative name of the bunch. Dreyer’s, as you’ve probably guessed already – is named after its founder William Dreyer.

5 Tips for naming your ice cream 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 ice cream terms like ice cream parlour. 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 ice cream business named “Udderlicious Ice Cream”.

This name is a pun that manages to combine the words udder (reminding us of the natural origins of their product) and delicious. It makes the business sound fun and lively, rather than some sort of boring corporation. It sounds like maybe a family business or something run by a group of ice cream-living friends.

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 (Chilly Connection, Ice Cream Dream)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Scoops – lets us imagine tasty scoops of cold ice cream being served)
  • 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 ice cream business names could be:

  • Brr Ice Cream
  • Eyes Kreme
  • Koola Ices

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 Family Ice Creams 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 FamilyIces, TheIceCreamFamily, FamIceCream.

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.
