The Birth Of A Business Name Is Exciting!

Everyone operating a homestead business has a story behind how they chose their own online business name that sticks in people’s head.

Even if the business is named after their own birth name, there’s a reason why this was done.

Ask other homesteaders how they decided upon their business name and you will get different answers.

When you start running your homestead as a business, in a sense, you are causing a new birth to begin.

This new birth was created from an idea alone by you or your associate.

It will have its own bank account, its own federal ID number, its own credit accounts, its own income and its own bills!

On paper, it is another individual!

Just as if you were choosing a name for your own unborn child, you need to spend considerable time in deciding upon your business name.


The first obvious reason is because it is the initial identification to your customers.

No one would want to do business with someone if they didn’t have a company name yet.

This makes you look like an amateur who is very unreliable.

Even if you call your company “Jason’s Lawn Service”, a company name has been established and you are indeed a company.

People will, therefore, feel more comfortable dealing with you.

Secondly, a business name normally is an indication as to the product or service you offer.

“Margaret’s Virtual Assistance Service”, “Karate Club For Women”, “Tony The Handy Man Services”, “Caroline’s Laundry”, “Charlotte’s Gift Boutique”, and “A 1 Publishers” are all examples of simple business names that immediately tell the customer what product you offer.

However, most people will choose the simple approach when naming their business.

They use their name, their spouse’s name, their children’s names or a combination of these names when naming a business.

The national hamburger restaurant chain “Wendy’s was named after the owner’s daughter.

However, research has proven that these cutesy names are not the best names to use for a business.

Many experts claim that it makes the business look too mom and pop.

However, this depends on the business.

If you are selling something that demands this mood or theme to appeal to your market, it’s best to use this approach.


Personally, I think you should name your business with a catchy name that stick in people’s heads after they have made contact initially.

For example:

  • Sensible Solutions
  • Printer’s Friend
  • Cooking And Grillin’ With AB
  • Mr. Make It Happen
  • Rural Money
  • Strictly Class
  • Collections And Treasures
  • Income Activator

Do you realize you can grow medicinal herbs for home grown cures from A to Z or a an herb garden to sell your own line of raw seasonings to online chefs and people in your online communities?

This business coupled with marketing on social media platforms could bring in many orders for your business.

When you name a child, you may not decide upon a definite name until after they are born.

You do this because a name is sometimes associated with a type of personality.

When you name a business, you may need to wait until you have a product or service to sell.

Then decide upon a business name before going into the business.

Because, your business name should give some clue as to what product or service you are selling.

A business named “Bee’s Collections” normally wouldn’t sell car parts and a business named “Pinkie’s Calico”, would not sell knitting supplies.

To generate ideas, begin looking at online business names on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, etc. and everywhere you go.

Notice which ones catch your eye and stick in your mind.

Try and figure out why they stuck in your mind.

Naturally, the business “Domino’s Pizza” sticks in your mind because it is nationally known.

These don’t count!Look around and notice the smaller businesses.

Take your time.

Within a few days, you should be able to come up with a few potential business names.

When you finally find a few names you really like, try reciting them to other people and get their opinions.

It won’t be long until your business will have the proper name that will carry it through its life!

Try to avoid very long names so they will fit into small Adsense display ads.
