How to Choose a Name for a Mobile Application: 7 Useful Tips

Now that you have the list of online generators that simplify picking of the name, we recommend that you pay attention to a few other issues:

  1. The name should attract attention, intrigue, and arouse the interest of users.
  2. It should be informative, short and easy to pronounce (and remember).
  3. Sounding good is another important point. Pronounce the selected name out loud – are all the letters clearly audible?
  4. You can include popular search queries that are relevant to the subject of the application in the name. This will make it easier to land organic traffic.
  5. Hint at the app’s functionality. The main purpose of the mobile application can already be specified in its name.
  6. Be sure to check whether the name you have invented is available. It would be a shame to spend a lot of hours on development, and then find out that this name has already been registered by someone else as a trademark.
  7. Do not hurry. This is too important a task to be rushed. You will have only one chance to make a first impression.

Finding a name for a mobile application or a startup becomes more difficult every day, due to the high competition in the market. We advise you not to be afraid of bold decisions, like picking “incomprehensible” names – “Instagram” appeared to be “incomprehensible” to many at first, but now this name is widely known by everyone, and this product has enjoyed a massive success. Picking a name for your app is a complicated, but fascinating process.
