Naming an IT Tech Brand is difficult and getting more so by the day. The name you choose for your tech product or startup has to reflect its application. That means your ground breaking IT tech startup needs a ground braking and cutting edge name. Simply naming your brand after its founder, or named after your product or service just doesn’t fly anymore.
So what’s a tech company to do, after all there are only so many words in the dictionary?
Ultimately, more and more companies have been creating new and exciting words to use for their name. The first way to create a new word is by combining two existing words to create something new. For example, just look at Corel, this name was created by combining the words COwpland REsearch and Laboratory. A second example that pops to mind is MicroSoft. This is the combination of the words MICROcomputer SOFTwear.
Insights and Ideas on Naming an IT Tech Brand & Startup
A second way that tech companies are developing new and exciting names is by using an ordinary word from one industry in a different industry. This “ordinary” word takes on a new meaning and its unexpected use grabs attention.
Adobe is a word completely dissociated with technology but it works specifically within the tech industry. Apple is another example of a common word that’s unusual in another, thereby grabbing attention.
There’s yet another way to develop these cutting edge name for an IT Tech startup is by developing a new word. Beyond being creative, these developed names may be easier to trademark down the road.
If you decide to go with an invented word, do your research! Make sure the word doesn’t have negative connotations or mean something unexpected in a foreign language.

Naming an IT Startup
When naming a technology company people expect you to be on the cutting edge and your IT company name needs to reflect it.
Technology is speeding up the world, constantly pushing ahead and bringing new things to light. When naming a technology company people expect you to be on the cutting edge and your IT company name needs to reflect it.
It doesn’t matter if your new company is in electronics, networking, cloud computing, hardware or IT service, people are going to be really sensitive to your name.
Because tech companies are international you should never, never use a local or geographically specific name. People will be using your product on every corner of the earth and naming yourself “New York Technology” will really limit your client base.
Even though you will be doing everything online people will assume you’re far away and you won’t be there to help. The only time you can get away with a local IT name is a small corner shop computer repair shop.
On the same thought of the non-geographical name you should also think about not using a specific language for your new tech company name. Why use a specific language to name your company?
