#1) Brainstorm your name ideas

Brainstorming on the words to use to qualify your business is quite essential because this is the first representative of your business. I used words related to vehicles and transportation because those are core factors in a taxi business. 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:

Fareies

Fair Fares

Cabme

Cabby Shack

Cool Cab

Quick Cab

Get There Co.

The Party Van

Quicki

Bookar

DeTaxing

Bookit

D’arrive

Prestige Transportation

Trusti

City Transfers

Desi

Sure Way

#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:

Fair Fares

Quick Cab

Cabme

Cabby Shack

 

Removed Ideas:

Fareies

Cool Cab

Get There Co.

The Party Van

Quicki

Bookar

DeTaxing

Bookit

D’arrive

Trusti

City Transfers

#3) Get some feedback

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

Fair Fares

This name conveys a ride with fares that are modest and not outrageous.

Quick Cab

This name conveys a quick ride to your destination.

CabMe

This is a memorable name that is simple and straightforward on what the service offers.

CabbyShack

This is a fun, catchy name that is a play on the cult-classic film CaddyShack

#4) Check if it’s available

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

Ola Cabs Logo

Ola Cabs uses a personalized touch by making use of a real name to create a sense of safety and familiarity with customers.

Grab Logo

Grab creates a sense of being extremely high in demand or being competitive and this allows clients to know they are getting a service that others are envious of and that everyone wishes to experience.

Uber Logo

Uber is a word that denotes the supreme example of a thing, using that word for a taxi business denotes extremely high-quality service and high comfortability.

5 Tips for naming your taxi 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 taxi terms like lift, drive or trip. 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 taxi business named “Uber”.

Literally, this is a real taxi business that passes a lot of information about quality and standard without using those exact words.

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 (Calling Cabs, Welcome Wagons)
  • Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Prime Taxis: Prime is used to represent the peak of a thing, but here it denotes a high-quality customer service)
  • 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 taxi business names could be:

  • Espresso Taxi
  • Roadscouts
  • Groovyhackney

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, shortening Prime Taxi to PriTa or PriTax creates a different notion entirely.

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.
