Congratulations! You've decided to open an event planning company. This is an exciting time full of anticipation, stress, and an endless to-do list - including choosing a name for your business.

The name you choose for your event planning company can be the key to its success or failure. It's your business card - so make sure it says what you want it to say. A great event company name grabs attention, defines the mood of your business, and clarifies your event design services. It's a heavy task for just a few words.

When you start, you may encounter difficulties: your favorite event company name has already been registered by a local company, a friend points out that your choice is too generic, or the clever name you came up with in the middle of the night seems silly the next day. These obstacles are inevitable, so start thinking about name ideas early and seek inspiration from everywhere.

Starting with the Name for Your Event Planning Company

To guide your thinking, answer these three questions. Then, follow the advice on brainstorming ideas and creativity below. Soon enough, you'll come up with a unique, perfect name for your company that - more importantly - helps you generate revenue.

What is your brand and company's mission?

As you start brainstorming, it's helpful to think about the focus and brand of your company. You may have done this in the process of building your business plan, but this is a great opportunity to clarify your goals and business values. Are you focusing on planning high-end events? Corporate events? Non-profit events? Are you committed to eco-friendly event organization?

Then, think about what makes your event planning service special. It could be your gentle approach to event planning, the ability to make clients feel comfortable, or your talent and strength in creating unique events.

Remember your target market and your unique selling points and keep them in mind as you brainstorm ideas. Write down any words and phrases that come to mind to describe your approach to event planning and what you want to communicate to customers about your business. (An added bonus is that all these ideas will be helpful when you start building your own event planning website.)

What do your customers want?

Put yourself in the shoes of your customers. What are they most interested in? What do they want from an event planner?

All customers want you to organize a great event, but everyone has different expectations for the process. Wedding clients may value availability and support, while corporate clients may care more about independent decision-making and transparency. Imagine your ideal customer and write down all the skills and qualities they want, from creative event design to working speed and industry knowledge.

Another helpful exercise is to reach out to previous clients and ask them for a few words to describe their experience and the value of working with you.

What inspires you?

You're the CEO of your own startup company - it's important that you love the name of your company. Make a list of people, places, and things that make you smile and inspire you to work hard, solve problems, and be creative. Family names, street names, addresses, wild animals, countries, pets, fictional characters, music, colors, natural phenomena - all of these can be sources of inspiration in this brainstorming phase.

Event Company Name Ideas

Now it's time to put on your creative hat and enjoy it. Open your laptop or grab a notebook and start writing down event company names. Use your answers to the questions above and the following list as jumping-off points for your ideas. Tell your excited friends and family, but don't get emotional when you don't choose their ideas.

At this stage, you shouldn't eliminate anything. Think of 100 names and then add a few more. The more ideas you have to work with, the better.

Narrowing Down the List

Once you have a long list of names you like, set them aside and let them rest for a day or two. After a break, you may be able to eliminate some names from the list because they simply don't feel "right" when you come back to them.

Next, run the list past a few people whose opinions you respect. This will likely narrow down the list further.

Some expert suggestions:

  • Say the name out loud. Pretend you're answering the phone with that name. You'll find some names are easy, while others are difficult to say. Don't choose a name that you or your customers struggle to pronounce.
  • Sketch a business card design or homepage layout with your company name at the top. You don't have to be a graphic designer for this exercise; just make a rough sketch on a piece of paper. Does the name look nice on paper or on the screen? If it does, you're done.

Checking the Availability of the Name

When you've narrowed down the list to a few dozen ideas, it's time to research if your event planning company name already exists.

A name that is too similar to or the same as other companies in your area can confuse potential customers. More seriously, it can cause legal issues if the name copies an existing LLC or registered trademark.

Search for your company name on internet search engines, as well as in state business registration databases and trademark databases. Don't worry if another company in a different location has a similar name or the same name. You can add a location or a name to make your business stand out. For example, Sweeping Vistas Events can become Sweeping Vistas Events of Easton, or Golden Heron Event Design can become Golden Heron Design by Daniel.

Finalizing the Name

Once you have decided on a name for your event planning company that isn't already in use in your area, quickly register the business name with the state, purchase the website domain, and create accounts on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram.
