#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?

Sonic Sounds

Billowing Bass

Pace Rhythm

#3) Get some feedback

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

Sticks And Strings

This sounds like a musical instrument.

Pace Rhythm

This sounds like a danceable tune.

Billowing Bass

This sounds a lot like a country music band.

Sonic Sounds

This name implies a good sound or production quality.

#4) Check It’s available

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

NextBigSound Logo

Sound Cloud is true to their name; they provide a wide variety of songs and the name illustrates a type of mass storage for songs, and also, it seems to express easy accessibility.

Shazam Logo

Shazam comes off as a magical sound, and it is really catchy and simple. It also would be quite easy to remember and pronounce. Shazam also sounds edgy and fun, giving the target audience a glimpse of what to remember

Soundcloud Logo

Next Big Sound rightly qualifies what the business is about which is all about, bringing new artists to the world. The name sounds very explanatory and is still quite catchy.

5 Tips for naming your music 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 music terms like dance, tune or beat. 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 music business named “Next Big Sound”.

Literally, it explains all the brand is about but still doesn’t overdo it. The name tells a type of story and also allows you to know what to expect.

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 (Music Magic, Bellowing Bass)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Trap Therapy: trap outside this context would imply to an instrument used for catching animals, but there is a type of music called trap music)
  • 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 music business names could be:

  • Kordz
  • Lyricamost
  • Bebop Boys

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, if you intended to use Music Magic, it would be really disappointing and wrong to change it to MuMag which makes no sense at all.

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.
