More than 1000 company names are reserved on a daily basis and none of them are allowed to be the same.
Follow these easy tips to create a company name that would be accepted:
- Combine words.
You can combine words to create a unique name, e.g. Tshepo + Linda = Tshenda
- Translate words into other languages.
You can translate words that describe your company into other languages, before simplifying the words, e.g. Aurum + Bergbau = AURBERG
- Research to see what's available.
Use search engines such as Google and Facebook to see if other companies are already using the name you have in mind.
- You can generate a company name online.
You can use this website to generate a random & unique name.
As a side note, the name that gets reserved for your business (registered name) only needs to be used on official documents like invoices and legal agreements. You can use a different name for your branding, logo website etc (trading name).
