Yesterday, we posted a great article on how to get started with branding using our client Dhérèse as a case study. One of the things that we want to take a closer look at is how to name invention designs for Austin inventors. Sometimes, thinking up a name feels just as difficult as coming up with the initial invention idea. You might even think to yourself that all the good ones are taken. Fair assessment. You might have some feelings or adjectives that help describe how you want your target audience to perceive your product or brand. But alas, despite creating a word cloud, no company name comes to mind.
But with the advent of so many competing SaaS products, you’re in luck.
One of these SaaS products that can help you name your invention design is called Namelix.
Namelix is a business name generator that uses an AI-powered algorithm to create unique names for your company. Unlike other business name generators that simply combine dictionary words to create longer names, Namelix helps name invention designs for Austin inventors by automatically generating names relevant to your business idea.
Here’s how it works.
First, you enter one or more keywords related to your business idea or invention design. For this example, I entered the following search terms: “name invention designs Austin.”
Once you enter a keyword it takes you to the next page which asks you how long you’d like your brand or invention design name to be. I prefer short and medium-length names.
On the following page, they’ll ask you the style of the invention design or brand name. You can choose from brandable names, foreign words, misspellings, rhyming words, multiple words, compound words, real words, and people’s names. I selected brandable names.
In the last tab, you have the option of filtering results with generated brand or invention design names that have a domain available. You can select from .com, .ca, and many other domain names. For my search results, I turned this function off.
There were a ton of great results. Here are some of my favorites:
The best part? They don’t just write out your invention design or brand name using the same font. They color the name and use a custom font to help you visualize how you could use the brand name as well!
