#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Genuine”, “Valuable”, “Friendly” and “Easy”, you can see that while these words can be related to a Pawn Shop, they also suggest the kind of service and overall experience that you can expect to receive. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

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

5 Tips for naming your pawn shop

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 pawn terms like exchange or fast. 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 pawn shop named “Captain Cash”.

Using a name that reminds us of a superhero lets us immediately consider it as a powerful, versatile option. It also adds a welcome light-hearted touch to what is really a serious sort of business.

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 (Perfect Pawn, Power Pawn )
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (guarantee – this lets us consider that they promise to return our valuables to use once we pay back the cash)
  • 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 pawn shop names could be:

  • Pawnalot
  • Pow Pawn
  • KashKwikly

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 Speedy Pawn 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 SpeedPawn, PawnSpeedy or SpeedierPawning.

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.
