When you start a business it is important to start it on the correct footing. Creative business names can be hard to think of but worth the effort as they set the whole mood for your company and business.
For instance lets start with a little known company called Toys R Us, OK so it a very well known company but they have come up with a creative business name to state exactly what they do. Fundamentally they have a name that appeals to all ages, is easy to remember and states exactly what they do. This is just one way for a creative business name to help you be remembered.
Another way to have a creative name is to call it something interesting like Johnny Rockets. If you don't know what this is you really wont have a clue but if you know hamburgers and malt shakes in the USA, then there is no need to explain. It is a creative name with a heck of brand pushing involved into its themed restaurants all over. It is what we in the business call Creative Brand Name, first you have a creative name, then brand its style and theme and then get it out there.
Creative business names help people establish their company as their own and help the public feel affection for that name, without that affection to the band name and style it is very hard to get people to stay true to your brand.
McDonald's is another creative company name. Most people might not know this but McDonald's nearly went broke in the early years and even nearly had roast chickens on the menu. The McDonald brothers were brought out by a company and people dedicated to increasing the brand of the business and the name was already in the business. It was not what you call a creative business name, but when you think of the company or should it be, the first thing you always see when looking for a Macca's is the big M. There is a consistency in the brand and their food quality. No matter what McDonald's you walk into, if its in New York or New Zealand, you will always be asked - "do you want fries with that?" if you dont order the meal deal that is, and you will always know that the buns will have sesames on them. It is a way that they have kept their fans loyal. The consistency and the business name was created only once.
To have a creative business name is not only to have a funky name with text but also a feel to the name that oozes out of that creative name.
Without a name, there is no brand. So start on the right foot and think of your unique way to create your creative business name.
