Need Business Name Ideas? A Brand Name Generator Can Do The Trick (23 Options Inside)!

What can a brand name generator do that half an hour of brainstorming can’t?

Great question!

Sometimes, all you need to find an inspired business name is a cup of coffee (or tea) and a quiet place to sit and think.

But if you’re struggling to nail down a brand name that captures your vision, positions your brand for success and attracts your target audience, an online brand name generator can provide just the inspiration you need. 

Here are 23 brand name generator options that are just a click away.

1. Shopify


“Name your business in 10 seconds or less.”

That’s the catchy tagline for Shopify’s well-known business brand generator. 

You’re asked to choose one word that defines your brand. Shopify then generates 100 brand name ideas that could become Shopify store names.

2. Oberlo


According to Orberlo, its tool will “offer the perfect dose of creative inspiration and a new perspective to supplement your own ideas.”

To get started, enter a keyword that’s relevant to your company’s core identity. Its algorithm will then generate hundreds (or even thousands) of business names to consider, all of them with available domains to purchase.

Oberlo also offers an extensive FAQ section that offers helpful insights and hints for choosing the right brand name.

3. WebHostingGeeks


WebHostingGeeks lets you narrow down your choices with customization  options below the keyword field. The length of the resulting list depends on your chosen keyword and filtering options. 

As an added bonus, it also shows both domain and Twitter handle availability, which makes it easier for you to establish an online presence. 

4. Wordlab


Instead of a list, Wordlab gives you a new, totally random result with each click of the button. 

It’s less targeted than some of the other name generators, but its randomness can inspire some really creative names. Think of this like the TikTok of name generators.

5. Freshbooks


The first thing the Freshbooks name generator asks you to do is identify the industry you work for.

From there, it takes you to a keyword field and asks, “What one word do you want to make sure is included in your business name?”

It uses that word to generate a few business name ideas and asks you to pick your favorite.

6. Namelix Business Name Generator


Type in a keyword (or a few) and the Namelix generator asks you to choose one of three name length options. Next, it lets you choose a brand style, with options like “Brandable,” “Real words” and “Misspellings.” 

Once you get past the filters, it shows you a page full of stylized business names. Hover over it to see the price or “heart” the ones you like.

7. Wix Business Name Generator


The Wix Business Name Generator asks for one or two keywords and takes you to a results page with the business names generated.

You can then click on a favorite to see what domain names are available for it.

8. Getsocio Business Name Generator


Enter a keyword into the Getsocio generator and you’ll get hundreds (sometimes thousands) of results.

One cool thing about this generator is that it offers you five tips on how to improve your chances of finding the best name for your business.

9. BNG Business Name Generator


When you type a keyword (or a few) into the search field for the BNG Business Name Generator, it opens a new window with your results. 

The homepage also provides helpful tips for finding the best name for your business.

10. NameSnack Business Name Generator


Type in a few words related to your business (e.g., “freelance business writing”) and NameSnack will take you to a page that allows you to add a specific category (e.g., “freelance writing” + “health and beauty”). 

From there, it generates a list of options for you to consider. You can even ask NameSnack to create a logo for your favorite.

11. BrandRoot


BrandRoot describes itself as the “smartest premium business name generator ever.”

Not only do you get a list of options with each single keyword you try, but you get to see each one stylized as a logo. This is helpful if you’re a creative or visual entrepreneur who likes to see your options in context.

12. ThemeIsle Blog Name Generator


Type in a word and ThemeIsle instantly generates a list of viable related domain names for each, complete with extensions. 

You can even select which extensions you’re willing to consider (.com, .net, .org, .info, .blog, etc.).


Type up to five words in the search field (separated by spaces) and NameSmith generates business names with matching domain names, depending on what’s available. 

Or, you can click on “Just generate some random names please!”

14. Fit Small Business


Fit Small Business asks you some targeted questions about your business before it generates name ideas. 

This one doesn’t generate nearly as many brand names as its competitors, but the results are more targeted (thanks to those questions you just answered).

It also offers you ten tips for choosing the best business name, which can help your results be even more targeted.

15. NameStation


NameStation requires you to register for an account before it’ll give you name suggestions. It’s free to sign up.

One upside to registering, beyond the more targeted results you’ll see, is the online community you’ll gain access to (and can ask for suggestions).

16. Domain Puzzler


Domain Puzzler gives you three options for generating names: Instant, Advanced and Wizard.

Type in a domain name and the “Instant” option takes you right to Bluehost to check its availability.

Switch over to “Advanced” and enter a couple keywords, and you get a short list of options. 

The “Wizard” tab turns your keywords into a row of buttons that generate random names.

17. Wordoid


If you’re fine with using made-up words, Wordoid can help you find one that says everything you want it to. 

It randomly generates pronounceable and brandable names without any help from keyword fields.

18. Lean Domain Search


Type in a few words and the Lean Domain Search generates a long list of available .com domain names. Click on one you like, and it gives you the option of registering it on Bluehost or creating a site with it on WordPress.

You can sort your results alphabetically, by popularity or by length.

19. BrandBucket


BrandBucket is one of the more fun brand name generators to try. Type the word “writing” into the search field, for example, and it generates nearly a thousand results, each related in some way to writing. 

Each one also includes a complimentary design (with or without a logo) and an available domain name.

20. Namerific


Like BrandBucket, Namerific takes your keyword and generates a selection of related business names with .com domain names, logos and complimentary fonts — along with a price for making it your own. 

Use it as a springboard for brainstorming brandable names and designs. You can even set a price range before running a search to make sure you stay within your budget.

21. Domainr


Click into the search field and enter a domain name or keyword and Domainr generates a list of  options as you type — letting you know which are available and which are already taken. 

It also checks registrars directly to avoid false positives. Click on the word “Available” for a favorite, and it even suggests different sites on which to buy it — including Bluehost and GoDaddy.

22. OneClickName


OneClickName is another service that generates stylized business names with logos, complimentary fonts and prices for each design. 

Each one also has a “View More” button to tell you more about it and present similar options for you to consider.

Click on the plus sign or star to check one out and add it to your favorites. Or, you can save it to your Pinterest branding board.

23. GoDaddy


GoDaddy can help you find a business name, get you registered with a matching domain name and even provide hosting services for your website. 

Type in a keyword or domain name idea, and its brand name generator lets you know which extensions are available (and which are not).

    I cannot believe the timing of your email! The next thing I was about to start today was to seriously play around with words to develop a business name: as I need to submit my business company application today. Your email turned up and now I have more than a helping hand to finalise this last detail. Thank you.
