Answer:

What's the best type of name for my business?

There's no one-size-fits-all formula for picking a great business name. The best name depends on a host of considerations -- some as obvious as the kind of business you do, others as unique as your own tastes and style. There are, however, a few guidelines that will steer you in the right direction. A good business name should:

  • be distinctive
  • be memorable
  • be easily spelled and pronounced
  • suggest the products or services you offer, and
  • distinguish you from your competitors.
