Company Names

#NamingAgency Silicon Valley California

From sole proprietor startups to new divisions or corporate naming, we have done it all. Our process and prices scale depending on your organization’s size and the number of people involved.

On all projects, fixed price, guaranteed results, regardless of the final number of names submitted, execs involved or hours expended. We stay with you until you are signed off.

Trademark Checks

Domestic or worldwide trademark checks are one of our specialties. Often we just do these para-legal level checks for other creative teams as it is a different skill from the purely creative side of name generation.

Domain, common law and basic popular business language linguistics reports are included as well for finalist names.

Process

Nowadays naming needs a rigorous process to ensure good results in a fairly quick time frame. Names that are embraced by all, including the CEO and his lawyer.

While each project is slightly different, our systematic process starts with hundreds of fresh new names from our naming team. These are supplemented by names from our extensive databases and sorted and searched to present 75+ provisionally available names at the first meeting.

From there on it is an interactive, converging process. We do the heavy lifting and all the checking and tabulation. Your naming team does all the selections so they have an ownership stake from the get-go.

Taglines & Slogans

Good names can be enhanced for positioning and clarity with a good tagline or slogan. But they need to work in harmony and be strong and short like the title on a billboard. Often they save your team from putting long tails on the name which are a burden forevermore and lead to you too easily being lost in a sea of initials.

Plus taglines can much more easily evolve over time with few legal issues compared to the name itself.

Brand Architecture
