Why a Branded Name?

For new businesses, naming options can seem quite limited. Short domains are very expensive, yet longer multi-word names don’t inspire confidence.

In 2020 many startups are choosing a short, branded name that is unique, memorable and affordable.

Why Choosing the Right Business Name Is Important

Your business identity, or brand, shapes how customers see you and influences their decision to buy. A short, distinctive name shows confidence and creates excitement around your products and services. Our Business Name Generator will help you create unforgettable, unique, simple business names that showcase your business values in the best possible way.

How to Brainstorm Company Names

The Business Name Generator uses the keywords you provide us with, then sprinkles on a little AI magic to create dozens of possible business names. You can start simply, with just one or two keywords, and then enter additional words to fine-tune your results. There are plenty of ways to create the initial keywords. Brainstorm words associated with:

The specific niche for your business

The types of products and services you offer

Who your ideal audience is

The goals you have for your business

For more inspiration, use a thesaurus to find and include similar words.

Once You’ve Chosen a Brand Name...

Check If the Business Name Is Already in Use

Before you commit to a business name, check to see if it’s legally available and not taken by another company in your state. Incfile’s Business Name Generator allows you to search name availability straight from the results page, making it easy.

You can also go directly to Incfile’s free Business Name Search tool to check your state’s business registry.

See If You Can Get the Domain Name and Social Media Accounts

Almost every business will need an online presence and that means the right website, email and social media. To start, check to see if the domain name is available. If it is, you should quickly acquire the domain name to ensure it’s not taken by someone else. If you can get the domain, the associated email domain should be available as well.

You will also want to use a business name that’s available on social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. We recommend services like Namecheckr and Namechk to see what’s available.

Form Your LLC and Register Your Business Name

Once you’ve found the perfect name, it’s time to make it official. You can start your LLC with Incfile today. Filing your paperwork reserves your business name in your state. If you want to protect the name across the U.S., we can complete a trademark search and registration on your behalf. If you already have a business and you want to use a new name as a trade or assumed name, we’ve got you covered there, too.
