Before You Name Your Startup, Read This.

  1. How To Name Your Startup.
  2. THE CHALLENGE. Encapsulating a business in a single word or phrase can be a daunting task. For startups, the name of the business becomes the first word of every investor pitch and the first message that’s spread to potential users.
  3. Jared Kopf Founder of AdRoll and HomeRun 1 Look for consistency between the URL, company name, and product name. Expert Notes and Anecdotes. 2 Aim for short, catchy names that work well as both nouns and verbs.
  4. Expert Notes & Anecdotes. Jeremy Riney Founder of Guidebox “I created a database table and filled it with every single one syllable word that had anything to do with television…I sat with the combined list for a weekend and Guidebox was the clear winner.”
  5. Brad Flora Founder of PerfectAudience Don’t let domain availability stump you – test multiple iterations. Expert Notes & Anecdotes. “We basically just guessed a ton of different combinations around ‘audience’ until we found an unpurchased domain”
  6. Additional Notes & Anecdotes. 1 Relax! The name [Vastrm] came “during a meditation after we had exhausted week over week of names and mashed- phrases…sometimes the best solutions come once you are able to let the mind go.” -Jonathan Tang, Vastrm Founder 2 Make sure the name isn’t already trademarked! And on that note…
  7. IT’S 2014! SOME TOOLS TO GET YOU STARTED…
  8. TEST YOUR NAME •  Online surveys are an efficient way to gauge the appeal of a name. •  Survata is great for finding quality respondents, especially for startups and SMBs.
  9. CHECK DOMAIN AVAILABILITY •  Domainr and Domize present available and due-to-expire domain names clearly and comprehensively. •  You also have the option to purchase straight from the results page!
  10. GENERATE IDEAS •  For domain databases that provide more in the way of idea generation, Dot-o-mator displays available names, and has a handy compound name generator allowing you to filter by naming category and criteria. •  Impossibility! allows you to enter broader criteria, such as adding a noun or adjective to a keyword of your choice, and quickly generates a list of unregistered domain names that fit the bill.
  11. CROWDSOURCE THE NAME •  Sometimes a human touch is helpful when developing a shortlist of possible names. •  Services like SquadHelp and Naming Force allow you to describe your project and receive a bevy of crowdsourced options created by their users.
  12. IN SHORT 1 Keep it simple. 2 Check for domain availability. 3 Use multiple iterations. 4 Use online tools to your advantage. 5 Get an outsider’s perspective.
  13. THERE IS NO ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL •  So, whether a company’s naming journey is more mystical or data- backed, there are a number of factors to keep in mind and resources available at any step. Just give it some time, don’t be afraid to seek outside help, and come up with something that wouldn’t be humiliating to wear on a t-shirt.
