How to Choose the Perfect Brand Name in 4 Steps

What makes a memorable brand name? We break it down and give you a few shortcuts to find the perfect name.

What Makes a Good Brand Name?

“While there is no magic formula, there are common traits that make a brand name easier for you to use and easier for other people to remember. Ideally, you want something that’s:

  • Meaningful: It communicates your brand essence, conjures an image, and cultivates a positive emotional connection.
  • Distinctive: It is unique, memorable, and stands out from your competitors.
  • Accessible: People can easily interpret it, say it, spell it, or Google it. (Even if you have an unusual or bizarre name, it must be understandable.)
  • Protectable: You can trademark it, get the domain, and “own” it, both legally and in the general consciousness.
  • Future-proof: It can grow with the company and maintain relevance—and be adapted for different products and brand extensions.
  • Visual: You can translate/communicate it through design, including icons, logos, colors, etc.”

“Step 1) Articulate Your Core Identity

  • Vision: Why your company exists.
  • Mission: What your company does.
  • Values: How you do what you do.”

Step 2) Brainstorm

Step 3) Vet Your Brand Name

Step 4) Test, Test, Test

“Build the Strongest Brand Possible

Your brand name is only the first step in building a strong, memorable brand. For more tips on growing your brand:

“Designed to encrypt and ransom data and spy on everything a user does, malware has become very prevalent in the last few years. The 2017 WannaCry attack put the malicious software on front pages everywhere, and it’s likely that won’t be the last time software like that is in the news. We spoke with malware researcher Amanda Rousseau to find out how users can protect themselves — and what to do if they get attacked. Following is a transcript of the video.”
