#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Drip”, “Pipes”, “Leak” and “Water”, you can see that while these words can be related to Plumbing, they also conjure up images of having major problems and having to look for a friendly plumbing business to save the day. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

Here are my name ideas after brainstorming:
#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 plumbing 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 name suggests a no-fuss service that simply helps you out when you have a leak that needs to be fixed.
This name conveys the idea of a studious, expert approach that provides the right solution every time.
This name lets us imagine a business where they think about nothing more than plumbing and how best to stop leaks.
This name conveys the idea of nothing stopping our water and our daily lives from flowing smoothly.

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 plumbing businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
5 Star Plumbing, while there’s nothing creative about the name of this plumbing company, it creates a sense of exclusivity and professionalism. A five-star experience is something that most customers will be willing to go for.
Chuck the Water Man is a business name that conveys a business that’s local and trustworthy. Business names that work on a personal level can be effective as customers can feel they’ll be getting a better quality of service.
Affordable Pipe Services is a name that promotes itself as a cost-efficient plumbing service. This business has chosen to appeal to a key customer value of receiving a discounted or reasonably priced service.
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 plumbing terms like plumber of plumbing. 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 plumbing business named “On Tap Plumbers”.
Literally, this name conveys you’re getting a plumber who can fix your taps (faucets). However, it also gives the impression that they are ready to spring into action whenever you need them. This lets any potential customer picture a friendly plumber with great service.
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 Plumbing, No Leak Geeks)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Drains – a plumber is one of the few businesses that can use this word)
- 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 plumbing business names could be:

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 Fast Plumbers 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 FastPlumbing, PlumbFast or FastnPlumbing.
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.
Here are the top trending words used in Plumbing company names.
