If you’re a new seller or looking to start branding your already successful ecommerce business, the process of choosing a name for your business can be daunting. Having a memorable business name is essential, but it’s hard to be clever and crafty when you’re focused on running your company. We compiled our top three favorite (and free) website name generators to help you get your thinking cap on, make sure the name you choose is actually available and for sale as a website domain, and create a brand name that’s as memorable and clever as it is meaningful.
To help guide you through these tools, I searched for the keyword “puppy” – I chose this for its popularity, in order to draw more creative results – knowing that most “puppy” options would probably already be taken, and also because it is my favorite thing in the world (honestly, I’ve been volunteering with the local dog shelter lately and falling in love daily – needless to say, puppies are on the mind).
Lean Domain Search:
Lean Domain matches your keyword(s) with available domain names that include your chosen word. Sort results by popularity, length, alphabetically, or select whether you’d like to see your keyword at the beginning or end of the domain name. Save your favorites to narrow down your options later.
A creative word generator that combines keywords with sound and visual appeal, Wordoid produces site names that “look nice and feel great.” Zanier suggestions will populate- which aligns best with a company that has a little room for fun with their branding and marketing. Wordoid displays whether each site name is available on .com or .net, and can filter through different language combinations for an even quirkier brand name.
Name mesh is a straightforward search tool to find which sites are available with your keywords. Filter by specifics such as Length, SEO effectiveness, Fun (meaning clever/good for branding), Newest, and more. You can further browse by domain hosting site (etc. Go Daddy), or select if you’d like your domain to populate on .com, .net, .io and .co. It works better with multiple keywords or a creative, new combination of words (see wordoid).
