The name should be descriptive. Your business name should not be too short or too descriptive. Use characters “between three and 15” and, the word limit should not exceed more than 3. Having too long names or too short name people tends to forget easily.

You can use the thesaurus website to check the meanings of names in different languages to get a clear idea of naming your business.
Try Unique Names.
Avoid using similar brand names as it makes you lose your own identity. Try to use names related to your product/services creatively and make a few changes. Having creative names makes you stand out from the crowd.
For example: –
Images Bazaar, this brand name suggests that they are the market of Images and will have all types of Images needed for websites, advertising, magazines, etc.
Trademark your Business Name.
Most businesses fail to trademark their name and result in losing their business. Trademarking your business name gives you an advantage that nobody else can take it, or you can file a lawsuit. Neglecting trademark would lead to your brand failure.
Check Domain Availability.
The most crucial thing the business owner neglects to check is domain availability. Digital Presence is necessary for every business to survive in 2020 as every business is going to digital. If! Your domain name is accessible purchase it soon as somebody else purchases it. The domain name should be the same as your business name and try to get the .com domain.
Domain: A domain is an online name for your business so, people can find you online. Everything which comes after “www.” is your domain name.
For example: – www.facebook.com, www.google.com, www.capsley.com, etc.
Choose a name that doesn’t limit your Business Growth.
Avoid using your name as a business name if you want to expand your business in some other country. If you plan to sell your business to someone in the future then avoid using names or surnames. You cannot use city names, place names for your business as it is against the laws.
For example: If you have a supermarket store in Kandivali, you cannot name your store as a Kandivali Supermarket store. Use names like Shikha Mart, etc.
