#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Summer”, “Fashion”, “Cool” and “Outdoors”. You can see that while these words can be related to sunglasses, they also suggest that you can expect a trendy, protective, and unique type of sunglasses 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.

Hazard

Specul8

Radikle

Gypsy

Pith

#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:

Bosk

Looking Rakish

Sultree

RoadTrip

 

Removed Ideas:

PatrolEyz

ScoutWire

Rage

Swank

Summer Hurricane

August

Scope

FlEyes

Hazard

#3) Get some feedback

You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great sunglasses business names and you can start to ask potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid asking for feedback from family and friends. 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?
  • Does this sound like a Brand you would wear?

With your customer feedback, you can now ask yourself, is the name still relevant? and did it represent your business how you intended?

My customer feedback:

Bosk

This name sounds cool. Most people didn’t know that bosk means small, wooded area.

RoadTrip

This name conveys adventure. What’s better than a summer road trip?

Looking Rakish

This name conveys a confident super model.

Sultree

This name conveys heat and passion.

#4) Check if it’s available

At this point, it’s good to have at least three great sunglasses business names on your list, in case any of your names are already taken. You can do a quick Business Name Search online to find out if your 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 sunglasses businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.

Ray-Ban Logo

Ray-Ban achieves a cool vibe. The name represents the benefits of sunglasses by referencing the sun (ray) and protection (ban). Together, the two words have successfully achieved a catchy brandable name.

Luxottica Logo

Luxottica achieves a premium quality sounding name by combining “luxury” and “ottica”. The Italian word “ottica” is defined as optics, referring to the study of light and vision. This business can be seen as offering a high-scale, expensive sunglasses.

Krewe Logo

KREWE is a sunglasses brand that chose their name based on their location. In New Orleans, krewe refers to private clubs that host Mardi Gras parties. As such, you will associate KREWE with its festive connotations.

5 Tips for naming your sunglasses 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 works for them will help you in forming your own business name. 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 sunglasses terms like shade, shadow, or sun. 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 sunglasses business named “Oakley”.

The name Oakley comes from the founder’s dog, “Oakley Anne.” The name conjures obvious thoughts of an oak tree. Oak trees are synonymous with strength, wisdom, and stability, a great image to base a company on.

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 (Blade Shades, Super Sun Specs)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (OutdoorZee)
  • Keep it short and simple.

4. Try purchasing a Brandable business name

Brandable business names are names that are non-sensical but when read are pronounced correctly. 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 sunglasses business names could be:

  • Juvone Sunglasses
  • Klosit Sunglasses
  • Burilo Sunglasses

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 Sunglasses Hut, then finds out its already taken. Because he’s already decided this is what he’ll name his business, he tries to opt for similar sounding names like Sun Hut, Glasses Hut, or Hut of Sun.

You can see how these ideas are a step backward as they are awkward and not memorable. In these situations, we suggest starting from scratch and trying the tips mentioned previously.
