Business name generator — FAQ

The name of your company is one of the first things your customers will see and is an important aspect that helps define your company's image. An appealing name is an essential tool for positioning your brand so that customers and clients instantly recognize what you do. Companies that choose a memorable name usually have higher chances of success.

Follow these tips to find a suitable company name. Your desired brand name should neither be too long nor too complex. Instead, choose simple, common terms that your customers can easily remember. Focus your search on words that describe your business in a positive and transparent manner. Ideally, your chosen business name should be recognizable so that it stands out from the competition. The name you choose should not be trademarked already.

Before you get started with the free business name generator, consider the terms and keywords that could be associated with your company and brand. Brainstorm ideas with peers, colleagues, or employees to collect the best ideas. Then check them in the IONOS name generator. Once you enter keywords in the generator, it will suggest a number of possible company names. To get an overview of the generated company names, sort them by preference. In addition, each listed brand name contains associated domains that can be checked for availability in a few simple clicks. If you cannot find one you like, the results may serve as inspiration for another search.

Yes. The business name generator by IONOS is free to use. The number of searches is not restricted. Use the generator as often as you like and until you’ve found the perfect company name.

If you want to check whether a company name is already being used by another business or is trademarked, search the trademark database. You can usually restrict your search to national or international results. Even if you’re only trading in the USA, it’s worth checking your new company name internationally.

No. Trademark protection of a company name via IONOS is not possible. The business name generator is only used to search for potential brand names. You can research and register suitable domain names (Internet addresses) for these via IONOS. However, the IONOS Name Generator does not check whether the suggested names are already taken and/or protected. Before you decide on a company name, you should definitely check whether it is still available. Trademark databases and lawyers specialized in trademark law may be able to assist with this.
