How to Name a Business or Boutique

Congratulations on pursuing your passion! You've decided to open up a boutique, and perhaps you are wondering how to pick a memorable name for it. You may have started brainstorming already, but maybe are simply looking for some inspiration. Wherever you start, there are a few things you should know before naming your beauty bar, bridal store, maternity boutique, or clothing shop. In this article, we will look at name ideas for:

  • Maternity Boutiques
  • Beauty Boutiques
  • Fashion Boutiques
  • Bridal Boutiques
  • Miscellaneous Shops

Building a Brand and Avoiding Duplication

I worked with a lawyer a while back who gave me some advice on how to choose a name for a business. At the time, I was looking into online media. She gave me some helpful advice on how to choose a memorable name that no one else had. Simply put, you want to build a brand and pick a name that no one else (the competition) is using. Below is some of the advice that she gave me.

How to Choose a Boutique Name

  • Your Name: Choose a store name inspired by . . . you! That's right. By using your own name (whether first or last), you create an important distinction. Consider a fun name like Robin's Egg, Carolyne's Closet, or Barbie's Beauty Bar.
  • Something Descriptive: If you'd like to describe your industry, a descriptive name might be good. You could go for Mom's the Word or Baby Baby.
  • Something Fabricated: This is one of the strongest name types to go for. This is something you can trademark without trouble. Think of words like Kleenex and Instagrammake something up that has a ring to it that doesn't already exist—no one can copy it.
  • A Metaphor: A strong metaphor may set you apart from the competition, but it will require that you create an association between it and your business. Mariposa or Tuesday Morning are two good examples.
  • Acronyms: Acronyms make for strong names such as J&J (Jack and Jill) or YOLO (You Only Live Once).
  • Something in a Second Language: If you are blessed to be bilingual, trilingual, or so forth, consider names in French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese, etc. Sukoshi Goods or Mi Amor are both good names that use non-English words.

Where to Pull Inspiration From

Choose names that encompass the market you are targeting. If you are doing beauty, draw from words, terms, and phrases that describe beauty and beauty techniques. If you're into fashion, pick out terms from the industry like—Chic Château, Très Chic, Haut, or Deux Cafes.

Decide if you want to go for trendy, charming, cute, unique, or sentimental (the list goes on). Always aim for a positive image (no negative associations), and avoid words and terms that can be confused and misinterpreted. For a children's or baby boutique (maternity), you may want to scan through children's books for vocabulary ideas. You can find things like Each Peach, Bunny Trails, Duck Duck Goose, etc.

Hi Kiruthika, I think designer boutiques do well with literal name inspiration from the founders, rather than adjectives. That or city or regional name inspiration.
