#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like #squad,” “24/7,” “remote” and “talent.” These words highlight the key benefits related to hiring a virtual assistant. They show a company the ease and convenience that stem from the selection of such services. Many other positive characteristics of virtual assistant companies can be highlighted in a similar manner through the selection of the right words.

#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 say out loud. Keep names that are brandable, sound great, memorable and that 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?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great virtual assistant business names and you can start asking potential customers or people working in the industry for feedback (your target audience). Avoid feedback from family and friends, who 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? Would you trust this business off its name alone?
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:
This name conveys a incessant service availability, which is great.
This name conveys ease of hiring a virtual assistant and it’s also fun.
This name conveys reliability – something that B2B clients are heavily interested in.
This name conveys professionalism. It’s less creative than the other options but it works in the B2B realm.
#4) Check It’s available
At this point, it’s good to have at least three great virtual assistant 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 virtual assistant businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
UAssist.Me is a great choice for a name in the real of digital service provision. For a start, it tells potential clients exactly what the company has to offer. More than that, the name uses the typical lingo in the tech or digital realm – a fat that makes it relevant and fresh.
Surplus Hands adopts a more indirect approach towards telling clients what the company has to offer. When a bit of context is provided, however, the name starts making perfect sense. It is a great choice because it refrains making use of some of the biggest cliches in the field.
Worldwide 101 is a business that’s telling everyone what types of virtual assistants it has to offer. It’s obvious that the company’s pool of talent comes from all parts of the world. The name sets clear expectations right from the start and enables clients who are looking for something different to move on.
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 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 virtual assistant terms like worker, employment and virtual. 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 virtual assistant business name like MyTasker.
When used in the right context, the name obviously suggests that a company can outsource tasks to its professionals. The term task is very broad, which is suggestive of a large talent pool that can handle any process. The word “task” is also a bit more casual than project, hence the business could be seen as an attractive partner to small companies and startups.
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 (VA a Click Away, Tech Tasker)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (VirtualStar4U, for example, is a name that needs some context to start making sense. When the niche and industry are provided, it quickly becomes clear that the name is indicative of excellence)
- 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 virtual assistant business names could be:
- Virtualia Hire
- Technopan Virtual Assistant
- Digime VA
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 Virtual Work Guru 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 VirtGuru, Virtual Workuru and GurWork.
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.
