How to Choose a Name for Your Candle Business

Here are some key factors to consider when choosing your candle business name.

1. Check Name Availability

When you come up with candle business name options, you’ll want to make sure they’re available and stand out from competitor names. You don’t want to copy competitors by choosing a name similar to theirs.

You’ll need to do a business name search on your state’s Secretary of State’s website to see if the name is available. The search will also show similar names, so you can ensure your name is unique in your state.

Also, check the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s website to verify the name is not trademarked.

2. Check Your State’s Business Name Regulations

Each state has rules regarding business names, often restricting words such as “bank” or “university.” Some states have stricter rules than others; for example, Michigan has a long list of prohibited words. You should be able to find your state’s restrictions on the Secretary of State’s website.

Upon creating an LLC, it’s mandatory to have either ‘LLC’, ‘limited liability company’, or ‘limited liability’ as part of its official name. This ensures clarity and compliance with naming conventions for such entities.

3. Choose a Name with Relevance

Your name should be relevant to your products. It should also reflect your business mission and your brand’s identity. Often, if you write down a description of your brand identity, you’ll come up with words that have the potential to be used in your business name.

4. Keep It Simple

Your name should be easy to say so that it’s more memorable. It should also be easy to spell so people can search for your candle business online. 

5. Short and Unique

Short, unique, and catchy names stand out. Think Google, which is so catchy and unique that it’s become a verb!

6. Get Feedback

Family and friends can give you an outside perspective on your candle business name. They can offer suggestions and give you feedback on the names you have in mind.

7. Allow for Expansion

As your business grows, you may expand into new product or service lines, so you don’t want a business name that’s too narrow.  For example, “Lydia’s Candles” is more inclusive than “Lydia’s Beeswax Candles.” The name should also have timeless appeal. Don’t try to capture a trend — trends continuously change, so you don’t want a name that could become outdated. 

8. .com is Best

You’ll want to check to ensure the .com domain name is available for your chosen name. Domain names that end in .com generally reflect more credibility than alternatives. Use our Domain Name Search Tool to find an available website name and get the perfect domain name for your business.

9. Use Keywords to Boost SEO

You’ll want your name to be SEO-friendly to boost your organic search engine rankings. Use keywords that potential customers might search for (e.g., “candles” or “aromatherapy”). 

10. How Does it Sound?

Say the name out loud to see how it rolls off the tongue. Is it pleasant? Does it evoke positivity? You’d be surprised how different a name sounds when you say it compared to when you think it. 

11. Appeal to Emotions

Names that evoke positive emotions can create a connection with your target customers. You want them to feel good about your candle business. 


How Can I Choose a Unique Candle Business Name?

To choose a unique candle business name, start by brainstorming words, phrases, or concepts related to candles, scents, or your brand’s identity. Avoid common words or phrases used by other businesses in the same industry. Conduct thorough research to ensure your chosen name is not already in use. Think creatively to capture the essence of your business while making it distinct and memorable.

What Makes a Candle Business Name Memorable?

A memorable candle business name typically consists of one or two words that are easy to spell and pronounce. It should evoke a sense of emotion or connection with your target audience. Avoid overly long or complex names, and consider using alliteration or rhyming to make the name catchy. Conduct surveys or gather feedback from potential customers to see which names resonate the most.

Are There Any Legal Considerations When Naming My Candle Business?

Yes, there are legal considerations when naming your candle business. It’s crucial to ensure that your chosen name is not already trademarked by another business, especially in the same industry. Conduct a thorough trademark search to avoid legal conflicts. Additionally, check domain name availability for your business’s online presence. Consult with a legal professional if you have any doubts about the legality of your chosen name.

How Do I Ensure My Candle Business Name Reflects My Brand's Identity?

To ensure your candle business name reflects your brand’s identity, consider your business’s core values, mission, and unique selling points. Your name should align with the emotions or experiences you want customers to associate with your candles. Consider your brand’s scents, themes, and visual elements and incorporate them into the name.

Can You Share Tips for Testing the Effectiveness of a Candle Business Name?

Testing the effectiveness of your candle business name is essential. One way is to conduct surveys or focus groups with potential customers to gauge their reactions to different name options. Pay attention to their feedback, associations, and whether the name resonates with them. Additionally, test the name by creating a mock-up of your branding materials, such as logos and packaging, to see how it visually fits your overall brand image.
