Points to keep in mind while naming your Company

As well as looking at the things you can and can’t do when naming your new Company, it’s essential to look at some of the things you should and shouldn’t do (of course, the ltd name check won’t be able to tell you what is a good name and what is a bad name).

It should be Memorable After you’ve told your company name to someone, they should be capable of finding it on Google. This means they require to:

a) memorize it 

b) be able to spell it

Hence, avoid names with non-standard spelling and overly long company names.

Be Unique While being inspired by another business model is fine, don’t let this thought seep into your company name. Your name should highlight what’s different about your business; your unique selling point.

Branding Consider the marketing opportunities of a great name. Does it conjure relevant imagery? Does it look good in a logo? Could it inspire a worthy slogan?

No to Initials We suggest directing clear of using initials in your company name as it will just prompt the question, “what does that stand for?”.

Limited to Location – Putting a location in your company name is subtle if your business will manage most of its activity in one place, not subtle if you’ve global ambitions.
