A company name or business designation is always required when someone becomes self-employed or establishes a company. In addition, company names can change when the business area changes, in the case of trademark disputes or in the case of company mergers.

But how do you find a company name? Most name generators on the internet are not suitable for professional name finding. Mostly they just create character names or combine random words together.

Naming tools

However, there are also a few tools that are worthwhile for the business name search.

On the one hand, there are inspiration tools that help you find ideas. These include, for example, synonym tools that can be used to find semantically related terms. Antonyms (opposites) can also be helpful in brainstorming. Translation tools provide further ideas for terms relevant to the content in other languages. And a mind-map programme can be used to relate the ideas to each other so that no sliver of thought is lost.

For professional name finding, it is also important to check the name ideas. Most domain hosters, for example, offer tools for checking the availability of top-level domains. Anyone setting up a business or company should also make sure that the rights to the name have not already been assigned elsewhere. Here it is worth taking a look at the relevant trademark databases. And it also makes sense to check the availability of the name in social networks, as well as to take a look at existing Google results in order to estimate the effort required for search engine optimisation.
