#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Waves”, “Action”, “Ocean” and “Waters”, you can see that these waters can easily be associated to surfing. 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:

Le Surf

Fat foamy Co.

Violent Calm Co.

Breaking Waves

#3) Get some feedback

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

Le Surf

The name is short, simple and easily brandable.

Fat foamy Co.

The words rhyme making the name catchy and easy to remember.

Violent Calm Co.

The juxtaposition makes the name stand out and easy to remember.

Breaking Waves

The name conveys products that are of high quality and durable.

#4) Check It’s available

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

Ron Jon Surf Shop Logo

Ron Jon Surf Shop Achieves a personal connection with customers by using the founder’s name in the business name. This kind of naming approach is very effective when it comes to winning customer loyalty. The name is also very professional, brandable and clearly states what the business is about.

Malibu Surf Shack Logo

Malibu Surf Shack is very clear in which geographic location its products are meant for. Location specific business names work very well for small and medium businesses who are looking to have a manageable but loyal customer base.

Surf n Sea Logo

Surf n Sea is an attention grabbing name. It uses rhyming words which makes it easy to notice and coming to memory. This name is very clear on what type of gear it sells. It is a great name for a surf shop than can easily be turned into a great brand.

5 Tips for naming your surf shop

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 terms. 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 surf shop named “The Fishermans’s Surf Shop”.

Literally, this name conveys that the surf shop belongs to the fisherman. On a deeper level though, the name suggest that you are buying from someone who understand the waters and is, therefore, more likely to sell high quality and durable products.

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 (Surf Shack, Surf Safe)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Victo Surf Shop – Victo as in Victory)
  • 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 surf shop names could be:

  • Nuvane Surf Shop
  • Alomos Surf Shop
  • Nurilo Surf Shop

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 Bumble Surf 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 BumbillSurf, Bumbleosy or BummbleSurf.

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.
