#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Vivid”, “Lens”, “Shutter” and “Capture”, you can see that while these words can be related to photography, they also suggest that you can expect a colorful, professional and trusted service from this business or brand. 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:

Pixxel Studio

Abstract Records

Heritage Media

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great studio 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 since they 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:

Pixxel Studio

This name conveys a premium and specializes service in a photography industry.

Abstract Records

This name conveys a service that focuses on producing creative and out-of-the-box music.

Heritage Media

This name conveys a service that specializes in creating vintage and retro art.

Colorpix Photography

This name conveys a service that specialized in producing high-quality colored photos.

#4) Check It’s available

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

Sunset Sound Studios Logo

Sunset Sound Studios
opened on Sunset Boulevard in 1962, the recording studio originally produced Disney film tracks. Eventually, it gained a lot of prominence in the late 60s and 70s due to work with Elton John, Rolling Stones, Jim Morrison, Ringo Starr and many others.

20th Century Fox Logo

20th Century Fox
another internationally-recognized film studio, this one gets its name after the merger of two film studios – Twentieth Century and Fox. It’s interesting to point out that the name hasn’t changed, regardless of the fact that the studio is owned by a company called 21st Century Fox.

Abbey Road Studios Logo

Abbey Road Studios
arguably one of the most popular recording studios in history, this one carries the name of a London street and also the name of a prominent album by The Beatles.

5 Tips for naming your studio 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 studio terms like art, design or visual. 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 studio business named “LightSpace Studios”.

This photography studio is known for the lighting and camera equipment it uses. Huge rooftop access and a tall ceiling are also defining characteristics (also reflected in the name). It’s such a memorable and brandable name that communicates the specialty of this 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 (Photo Phactory, Picture Patch)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Flow Hunters – Flow as the movement is the most crucial aspect when it comes to singing.)
  • 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 studio business names could be:

  • Lukane Photography
  • Elamos Records
  • Postus Studio

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 Abstract Records 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 Abstracords, AbstractedRecords or AbsRecords.

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.
