Four steps to naming your science business

#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like innovation, culture, tech, lab, research and progress. These words are very relevant to the services and the products formulated by scientific development brands. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your business.
If you’re stuck on words to use, try our business name generator.
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 science 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 conveys developments that are widespread and important, capable of promoting change in our lives.
This name conveys a team capable of crossing borders and overcoming frontiers.
This name conveys intelligence and innovation.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great science 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.

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful science businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Regeneron is a business name that provides a few hints about the company’s area of specialization. This is a biotech company that focuses on substances and products having regenerative capabilities. Apart from being relevant, the name also has a “sciency” and cool, modernistic feel to it.
Syapse, as you’ve probably guessed already, is a name that’s based on the biological term synapse. The company develops a data sharing network for physicians that allows them to share information and pool experiences. Hence, the operation of the company is much like the functioning of the nervous system (synaptic spaces are located between neurons).
Synthego sounds cool and modernistic. It hints and synthetic and this hint isn’t accidental. The company is working towards the development of synthetic DNA. While the name provides a bit of indication about the technological field itself, it still remains brandable and open to interpretation.
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, relying on overused terms like tech, innovation, research and academic. 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 science business named Horizon Discovery.
The company specializes in the production of research tools. Knowing this, you can easily interpret the title and understand how it applies to the field without being literal. The company opens up new horizons towards scientific discovery through the creation of the right tools.
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 (Science Exchange, Top Tech, Genetic Magnetic)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Modern Meadow relies on cellular agriculture to modernize farming)
- 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 science business names could be:
- GenetEX Tech
- Scopera Biotech
- Organizen Tech
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 Tech Experiment 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 Techriment, Experitech and Extech.
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.
