#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Puzzle”, “Riddle”, “Clue” and “Brainy”. These words depict the need for brain work throughout the experience and allow those who complete the escape room to feel proud. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.

#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?

My Shortlist:

De-Crypt It

Danger Lock

SherLock Escape

Enigma

#3) Get some feedback

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

De-Crypt It

This name uses interesting wordplay that can also provide a sense for the kind of escape room you’re running.

Danger Lock

This name works for a wider variety of escape room types.

SherLock Escape

This name can be used for a specific kind of escape room, or simply any thing that involves some kind of detective work.

Enigma

This name is simple, puzzling and it’s going to make people want to find out what the room is all about.

#4) Check It’s available

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

Boxaroo Logo

Boxaroo is a name that works for just about any scenario, so if the owners choose to change the scenario in the escape rooms then they won’t need to worry about changing the name as well. It’s also a name that sounds like a lot of fun, which is more likely to draw in those who might be nervous about escape rooms that have darker themes.

Puzzah! Logo

Puzzah! is another name that sparks the idea of fun. It’s simple, easy to remember and presents itself as something the whole family can enjoy.

Mindtrap Escape Room Logo

Mindtrap Escape Room is a name that lets you know what it’s all about. The inclusion of the word “mindtrap” suggests that this is going to be a tougher escape room, but likely one that will be a lot of fun.

5 Tips for naming your room escape 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 room escape terms like escape, puzzle or solve. 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 room escape business named “Puzzah!”.

This is a simple but exciting name, which is going to provoke potential customers to want to find out more. It’s also a name that shows a lot of excitement, which is always a good sign!

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 (Epic Escape, Brainy Escape
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Enigma – this name literally means something that is puzzling or mysterious )
  • 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 room escape business names could be:

  • Fudona Room Escape
  • Evuda Escape
  • Rarilo Room Escape

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 Escape 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 Speedyy Escape, Speedscape or SpeeddyEscape.

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.
