Why is the Right Brand Name Important for your Business?
The brand name is your customer’s first contact with your company and its products.
- The brand name is what consumers use to talk about your product to other, potential customers.
- The right brand name makes consumers and other businesses want to use your product or associate with your company.
- The right brand name is what consumers remember when they want to use your product again.
- The right brand name begins the sale for you. It is your first sales rep, one that works for you around the clock, 7 days a week.

What is in a Successful Brand Name?
Clear Meaning (Semantics): A brand name should have an intrinsic meaning of lasting significance, connoting a class or category of the highest rank.
Creative Structure (Morphology): A brand name should have a creative and imaginative structure. Terminix, for example, is based on the Latin root “termin” meaning “to end”. The x of “Terminix” is based on the Latin prefix ex-, meaning “away” or “gone”. The new suffix -nix further implies negation, prohibition, elimination. The final product, “Terminix” further exploits the similarity between “termite” and “termin” to suggest the complete and absolute elimination of termites.
Appealing Sound (Phonology): A brand name should have a pleasant psychoacoustic effect on the hearer. Another device that can be employed is onomatopoeia, as in Zip Lock, alliteration (Tinker Toy), rhyming assonance (Nutter Butter), and other rhetorical devices to assure that our brand names stick in the minds of those who hear them.
Recognition Value: A successful trade name should be instantly recognizable. Paul Newman’s name on his salad dressing line, Newman’s Own, is instantly recognizable because of his fame as an actor. Recognize-ability can also derive from the name of the product line itself, the word for the problem the product resolves, and many other sources.
Prestige Value: A commercial name should possess the power to command admiration. Products with French or Italian names often command such prestige. “Clinique” sounds more prestigious than “Clinic” and “pasta” is more sophisticated than “noodles”. The selection of certain words or morphemes can contribute prestige value; that is why “Premier,” “Super,” and “Ultra” frequently appear in commercial names.
Catchy Rhythm: Pleasing poetic syllable patterns may add to the memorability of a company or product name. A roller coaster named “Super Duper Looper” may sound silly, but people remember the name. ….
Emotive Value: Certain words elicit strong cultural or psychological reactions. Names with “American”, “mother” or “family” in them not only evoke positive psychological responses but can also have warm emotional effects on the hearer
Our team exploits all of these features and others to generate innovative, memorable names.
There are countless ways to form words and to derive product names from them and countless ways the name you choose can impact your business.
