What Makes A Good Company Name?

A company name represents your business. It needs to be memorable and professional, and there are a few avenues you can go down to find the right company name for your business.

We have a number of excellent company names for sale, perfect for if you’re buying a ready-made company, starting up your own business or want to change your company name. Finding the right name can be a challenge, and it’s important to get right.

Using Mainstream Words To Name Your Business

This is perhaps the least memorable way to name a business, and arguably the least imaginative. However, should you hit upon a word that really sums up your business you could be onto a winner. 
Successful examples include, ‘Sky’, ‘Gap’, ‘Staples’ and ‘Nationwide’.

Choosing A Company Name Based On The Owner’s Name Or Initials

Naming your business after the business owner(s) demonstrates heritage and pride. It’s a simple but effective way to name a company, whether that’s using your full name, last name or initials. 
Successful examples include that of ‘Johnson & Johnson’, ‘John Lewis’, ‘Abercrombie & Fitch’ and ‘Ford’.

Opting For A Different Or Made Up Company Name

If you’re feeling brave, you could opt for a company name that makes no sense at all. This may work if your business is in the technology industry, or any business that aims to stay current and modern. This is considered a fairly risky choice, as they may be difficult to spell, making it difficult for potential clients or customers to find you online.

Successful examples include that of ‘Google’ and ‘Ikea’.
