#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like happy, comfort, couture and warm. These are all resulting in positive associations that are product-relevant. It’s essential to choose words that people will immediately tie to your brand identity. 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:

Happy Toes

Sole Comfort

So Socksy

The Gentleman Sock

Foot Joy

Warm Feet Socks

Urban Sock Masters

So Glamorous Sock Prints

Ankles to Thighs

Walk This Way Socks

Walk Like an Egyptian (Cotton)

Foot Support

Therapeutic Socks

Sock Couture

Comfort Sense

Soft and Creative

Cotton Socks and Beyond

#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:

Sole Comfort

Sock Couture

Urban Sock Masters

Happy Toes

 

Removed Ideas:

So Socksy

The Gentleman Sock

Foot Joy

Warm Feet Socks

So Glamorous Sock Prints

Ankles to Thighs

Walk This Way Socks

Foot Support

#3) Get some feedback

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

Sole Comfort

This name conveys a fun brand that also understands the importance of creating a comfortable product.

Sock Couture

This name conveys trendy and fun products, rather than something practical (but potentially boring).

Urban Sock Masters

This name conveys a company that is trying to communicate with a younger, hip crowd.

Happy Toes

This name conveys comfort, practical appeal and high quality of the product.

#4) Check It’s available

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

Soxy Logo

Soxy is a perfect choice for a sock company. The mashup between sock and sexy is really fun. In addition, the title has a ring to it. It’s short, memorable and very catchy. At the same time, the title is unique and it enables the company to easily differentiate itself from the competition.

Bombas Logo

Bombas is a very popular sock company that has its name derived from the Latin word for bumblebee. The name works really well with the company’s slogan: Bee Better. Bees work together to achieve perfection and this is the rationale that made the team choose the title as a primary representation of the brand.

Happy Socks Logo

Happy Socks is simple and probably a little bit less creative than the other two examples featured here. Still, the name accomplish exactly what the company needs it to. It establishes a positive association with the product. Everybody wants a little piece of happiness and if this is what the company has to offer, chances are that people will pay attention to the message.

5 Tips for naming your sock 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, relying on overused words like comfortable, stretchy, cotton, athletic or support. 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 honey business named Friday Sock Company.

Friday is associated to relaxation, a casual mood and the end of the week. This is the perfect representation for a company that manufactures purposefully mismatched socks in an ethical and sustainable manner. As you can see, this brand has a story to tell and the goal starts being accomplished via the right title selection.

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 (Shock Sock, Stock Sock, Foot Mood)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Solmate is a great choice that works in the context of socks because it refers to the word sole but also makes a reference to soulmate)
  • 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 honey business names could be:

  • Activitas Socks
  • Doterrific
  • Hualia Socks

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 Athletic Comfort 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 Ahtletifort, Comforletic and AthleCom.

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.
