Coming up with a creative and unique name for your business can be very hard and stressful. Once you start brainstorming you will slowly realize that almost every word or combination of words you can think of are either already trademarked or the domain has been taken by someone else. Trust me, I went through hell to find a name for this blog. I had countless ideas in my head but every single one of them was already taken.
After many disappointments I finally landed on the name “Selfgrasp”. I bought the domain immediately and went to the local Intellectual Property Department to register the business name before someone else do.
However, not everyone is this lucky. If you are stuck, don’t worry, there are many reliable business name generators that can help you. And the best thing is they are completely free.
I have listed 10 free business name generators you can use to figure out the perfect name for your business. They are not arranged in any particular order so try out all of them to see which one gives you the best results.
