Write everything

What I did was wrote down everything that came to my head and there where plenty more so it is a good starting point.

They are not all winners or even close to winners, but they lead to the winner.

So after an hour I came back to look at the list again and crossed out the ones I automatically hated.

Stupid things like that will put you off a name. But by the process of elimination you should find one you like.

Before you fall in love

Ok so you have found a name or some names, don’t fall in love with it just yet. There are still lots of things to do before you settle on the name.

First: Check Business name availability, via government sites – if someone else has the name you might not be able to use it.

Second: Check domain and social, 1. check and see if the names are available. .coms are a must but local is the next best. But make sure if the .com is taken that it does not link to something bad. 

Third: Check with you friends and family they are going to tell you if they love it or hate it. Tell them to think of any puns or this that could make the name sound bad.

Fourth: Google it.
