If you’re not sure how to answer those questions, you’re in the right place. Keep reading to learn my top tips for choosing the perfect business name and how to make sure your favorite choices are available. 

Let’s dive in!

Tips for Choosing the Perfect Barbershop Name

If you’re struggling to choose a creative name for your barbershop, one of the best things to do is just to start brainstorming. As you go through the tips outlined below, make a list of words, phrases, and terms associated with your business. 

From there, you can narrow down the list and cross off ideas you don’t like. 

Once you have several top considerations, we’ll walk you through how to make sure you’re allowed to use them. This last step helps you narrow down your list even more so you can make a final decision. 

1. Location-Specific Terms

Many barbershops are specific to a geographic service area. So, if that’s true for your business, consider adding a location-specific term to your business name. 

You can consider things like:

  • City nicknames
  • Neighborhoods
  • Regions or states
  • And descriptive terms

However, consider what happens if you expand outside your intended service area. Does the name become limiting? If so, it’s best to avoid it if you plan to expand or change directions later. 

2. Avoid Business Names That Are Hard to Say or Spell

Despite the technological advances in voice search, assistants like Siri and Alexa struggle to understand slang and other confusing words. 

This could limit how often your business shows up in voice (and text-based) search if your name is hard to spell, pronounce, or hear. Because of that, it’s important to avoid complicated words, industry jargon, and using numbers in place of letters.  While having a unique barbershop name is good, being too unique may not be so good. 

Keep your business name as simple and easy to remember as possible so potential customers can easily find you. 

3. Consider Alliterations and Rhyming Words

Alliterations and rhymes are catchy and easy to remember. Because of that, they make for great business names. 

That said, it’s not always easy to come up with them. Start with choosing a few of your favorite words from your master brainstorm list. 

Then, you can Google “words that start with C” to come up with a name like Creative Cuts or Cheap Cuts or whatever letter you’re using to create an alliteration. Alternatively, you can search “words that rhyme with _____.” 

It can be time-consuming, but it’s an excellent place to start. 

And don’t forget to add any exciting finds to your brainstorm list while you’re at it. Try not to overthink the names you come up with.  Just write them all down as some of the more interesting ones may spark better ideas later.

4. Steer Clear of Initials or Obscure Acronyms

Initials and unusual acronyms are hard to remember, so they typically don’t make great business names. They can also be challenging to pronounce and confusing for voice search as well. 

Furthermore, there are 325 different two-letter combination possibilities in the English language. And the odds of your customers remembering the specific letters you chose are pretty small. 

5. Imagery Words

Another consideration when brainstorming name ideas is whether there are industry-related words that could also lend themselves also to be used in a logo. For instance, a barbershop could use an image of scissors or a barber’s pole and focus the name around the image.

6. Try the Owner’s Name

If you’ve made it this far and are still struggling to find the best name, you can always consider using the business owner’s name or the name of an important family member. Doing so works well if the owner also plans to be the face behind the business. 

Something to keep in mind is that using the owner’s name as the business name can make it more challenging to sell the business in the future.

Is Your Barbershop Name Available to Use?

At this point, you should have several top considerations to choose from. And the best way to narrow it down further is to check each one for availability. 

This step is vital because using a name that someone else is using could be very costly, time-consuming to rebrand your business, and possibly embarrassing. There are several places to look to check whether a name is available to use, so let’s walk through the common ones.

Can the name be registered?

If you plan to register your barbershop business name as a corporation or LLC, each state requires a unique company name. 
 
This makes it important to search the Secretary of State’s name database in the state you plan to register to ensure your name isn’t already in use. 
 
In most states, sole proprietorships and partnerships are required to register a Doing Business As (DBA) or Assumed Name if they aren’t doing business under the owner’s full first and last name.  A few states require them to use a unique name, while others will let you pick just about any name you choose.

Is your barbershop name already trademarked?

When searching for a name for your new barbershop business, you need to make sure your new name isn’t trademarked by someone else. If it is, you may not be allowed to legally use it.
 
Thankfully the United States Patent Trademark Office (USPTO) makes trademark searching a breeze through their Trademark Database.
 
Remember that if a name doesn’t show up in this search, it isn’t necessarily available. Every business has some limited protection through a common law trademark. This means another business can’t open up shop down the street with the same name, as this creates confusion for customers.  Also, be sure to check local competitors by doing a Google search and looking through the Yellow Pages.
 
If your name is available and you want to protect it from being used by anyone else, you can register your name with the USPTO.

Is a domain name available with your business name?

A domain name is your business’s digital address. With so many people researching online, it’s crucial to make sure your barbershop business name is also available as a domain name. 

Website addresses aren’t as critical as the first two searches, but it’s still worth doing as a domain can cost as little as $10 to pick up. Typically, you want your domain name to be “yourbusinessname.com” without any numbers, dashes, etc.

You can easily search for a domain using NameCheap’s domain name search tool. 

 

Hopefully, you now have some good name ideas for naming your barbershop. Once you have this list narrowed down to just a few and researched that they are all available, start asking friends, family, and potential customers their thoughts to get feedback, and then pick the best barbershop name for you!
