Picking and Registering Company Names

You have decided to purchase the franchise or start a business but need some help with business names.

Check your name ideas using this generator:  BizNameGenerator where you can enter words and generate options for your company name or website.

Check your name U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to make sure someone hasn’t snatched it up.

Check with your Secretary of State such as the:

Connecticut Commercial Recording Division

Massachusetts:

To find your state, simply google your state name and add business search for example, new york business search.

Starting with the end in mind — think big, think successful and think most importantly that this is YOUR company and love the name you pick!  Of course remember that if you change your mind you can always change it with the right forms and fees so nothing is totally set in stone — big companies have changed their names so can you so don’t get overwhelmed or stuck.

My clients get their family involved — those individuals who are excited and supportive of your venture.  Do NOT bother asking those who think you are crazy and I’m sure you have many of those who think you are.  Think of the Wayne Huizenga who was a garbage collection manager who decided to build a Waste Management, Inc.  from scratch to become a Fortune 500 Company and leader in environmental sustainability (The Coming Jobs War, Jim Clifton, 2011).   Wayne encountered many people who thought he was crazy and that there was enough competition but he went ahead with his plans and now WM is a huge success.  Look him up and you’ll find that he went on to open other large companies from small beginnings.
