Next, analyze the names you've shortlisted to see if any of them are hard to remember, spell, or
pronounce (you'll have to keep this in mind when you pick your brand name as well). You should also
consider if any of the words aren't in your target audience's native language and how this might affect
them and their ability to find you online.
Use names that your target audience will easily recognize and bond with.
Here's a set of questions to consider with a business name:
- Is it simple to recall?
- Is it difficult to understand?
- Is it one-of-a-kind?
- Is there any symbolism that your audience can relate to?
- Is there any slang in the name?
Is the domain name still available?
The next step is to check whether the remaining retro business names are available to purchase as a domain. You don't have to buy the domain immediately, but you should be aware if one is currently taken. Another thing to look for is if the names have been trademarked or used in any way by a competitor. A simple Google search can help you find this out.

When it comes to retro company names, it’s all about authenticity. What retro products, services, or experiences do you offer? How are you different from your competitors? Consider who your customers will be. In general, successful retro business names are:
- Universal: this means the brand name makes sense across different languages
- Easy to pronounce: you want your retro name to be easy to find and remember
- Non-specific: if you have a vision of expanding your retro company, you may want to ensure your name isn’t too specific so you can include other products or services
These days, business names are as diverse as the products and services themselves. Shopify’s free name generator is here to help inspire a creative and unique name for your business.
