#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your business name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Digital”, “Web”, “Domain” and “Online”, you can see that while these words can be related to Web design, they also suggest that you can expect a forward looking, progressive outlook when you deal with this company. 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:
#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?

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?

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful web design businesses and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Razorfish is one of the most prominent internet and web design agencies in the world, Razorfish was named by its two founders. The story has it that they picked random words out of a dictionary during a brainstorming session and that’s how the name was conceived.
The Creative Momentum is currently recognized as one of the best web design agencies in the world, The Creative Momentum highlights the uniqueness and creativity essential for the work of professionals in the field.
22Squared is a web design and advertising agency, 22Squared was founded in Atlanta in 1922. The year of origin is what inspired the name. It has remained unchanged through the years, even after several rebranding campaigns.
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 web design terms like site or web. 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 web design business named “StickOutSocial Web Design”.
This name lets us see right away that they appear to have a focus on social media. However, it also shows that they want to stand out from the crowd, perhaps by doing things differently in a fresh new way.
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 (Web Wonders, Digital Design)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (Dot – referring to the dot com part of a website address)
- 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 web design business names could be:
- DoDo Digital
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 Web Masters 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 WebMastering, Webly Masters or MyWebMasters.
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.
