There is a lot to consider – and it’s easy to make a blunder that you’ll regret down the line.

Whether you’re just starting out, starting a second business, or wanting to rebrand, I hope this helps you land on that ‘perfect’ name!

Highlights from this episode: 

Brainstorm possibilities, then use the following list to narrow them down:

  1. Don’t pick something too specific (or too boring).
  2. Don’t use weird spellings/initials if possible.
  3. Can you get the .com?
  4. Can you get all the social media handles?
  5. Is it a name someone is already using? (Etsy, business register – especially in your country, google) – you don’t want direct competition for search ranking.
  6. Don’t make it too hard to spell
  7. Say it out loud – how does it sound?
  8. Get feedback – what do 3-5 other people think?
  9. Does it feel right to you?
