#1) Brainstorm your name ideas
Start by brainstorming what words could fit into your club name. In my name ideas, I used words like “Adventures”, “Dramatic”, “Secret” and “Expressive”. You can see that while these words can be related to a writing club, they also help to show the creativity and fun that can be associated with writing. Your goal here is to create a list of words or names that come to mind when thinking about your club.
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?

#3) Get some feedback
You’ll now have a list of 3-6 great writing club 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?

Competitor Name Analysis
To help you brainstorm potential business names, let’s take a look at three successful writing clubs and break down why and how they’ve chosen to name their business and why it works for them.
Writer’s Round Table is a name that lets us picture the writers gathered together around a big table to discuss their ideas. It gives the club more of a personal touch and makes it seem more friendly yet well-organized at the same time.
Write Here, Write Now uses the similar sounds of “right” and “write” to introduce itself in a clever way. The name of the club lets us see right away what it is all about. However, it also gives it a sense of immediacy, as though the time to put off writing has now past.
Writing Without Workshops introduces a club where you can get right down to work from day one. There are no time-consuming workshops to delay your start with this group.
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 writing terms like pen, writer’s group or authors. 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 writing club named “Write Here Write Now”.
The use of a play on words immediately lets us picture this as a fun group that doesn’t take itself too seriously. They make it seem like the ideal place to start writing straight away but also add a light touch that makes it seem more welcoming too.
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 (Writers Work, Write Site)
- Try using a word that wouldn’t be relevant when out of context (scribble – this word lets us picture a writer rapidly putting down words as quickly as possible)
- 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 writing club names could be:
- A2Z Writing
- Bambam Writers
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 Writers United 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 WriteUnite, UnitingWriting or Writunited.
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.
