Our Brandings team is constantly being asked to create funny, catchy or really creative business names. I think that there can be quite a difference the three and it really depends on what type of business or company you’ll be starting.
We really love creative names here and we think you should us them whenever possible. We also feel the same about funny and catchy business name — but that’s where it ends. Funny names will work in several industries.
If you are opening a cleaning service by the sea, a lake or on one of the coasts something funny like “A Mermaid” would work. This name is funny and memorable but not stupid and with a cleaver logo you’d know exactly what the company does.
A while back I wrote a blog called “Off-the-wall names get people to look twice” and in it, I wrote about a Los Angeles Times article discussing crazy local business names. There were two stand-out funny names, Hammered Liquor and AA Liquor Mart.
Both were making 20% of revenue from non-alcohol related merchandise; t-shirts hats and the sort. The owners also stated that there are doing far better business then the previous tenants that were selling the same liquor in the same spot. Funny names can work.
Now a funny company name may not work for you. No one wants a funny lawyer, broker or accountant but even some of them could use a cleaver company name. We said in this blog over and over again how we love 5 letter company names and 6 letter company names that seemingly have no meaning.
These would work well for some companies and would make very good clever or catchy company names. For instance, we like the name “Hegly.” Doesn’t really mean anything and would make a good brokers office. “Hegly Brokerage,” sounds good right.
Ever hear of “hedging” a bet? I know the spelling is off but it might trigger something in the listeners mind and make them associate “hedging” and “Hegly Brokerage.” Not bad when the association when you’re playing the market and don’t want to lose.
Think about what type of company you’re naming and whether it should be a funny company name or a <a href=”http://www.brandings.com/catchy-business-names.php”>catchy business name</a> but either way it should be a clever name.
