The 11 Best Product Name Generator Tools

I’ve always found it particularly difficult to generate product idea names and business idea names.

It took us months to come up with our company name, “Omniscient Digital.”

We generated ideas using tools as well as brainstorming.

Whether you’re hoping to come up with a brand name, company name, domain name, or product name, there are tools that can help you generate new ideas.

What is a Product Name Generator?

Product name generators can be an invaluable tool when you’re trying to come up with the perfect product name.

A generator will provide you with a list of potential names that match your criteria, giving you plenty of options to consider. Some of them use AI that can incorporate information about your target audience and unique business dimensions. Others will mash up random words to get the creative juices flowing.

It’s important to remember that while these tools are helpful, they won’t always give you the perfect answer – so it’s important to take some time to brainstorm and evaluate the results.

1. Jasper

Jasper AI is an amazing AI text generator that serves all kinds of use cases, from writing complete blog posts to generating name ideas.

They have an easy to use template that you can use to generate business names and product names:

I also love to use their command feature, which allows for a bit more flexibility. Here I give it some background context on my business and ask it to generate some creative business name ideas:

They also have a chat interface that is easy to use.

You can give the chat additional context. Here I include some competitor analysis and a value proposition that we want to emphasis to reach out target market:

All in, this is my favorite AI content writing tool and I find it incredibly useful for all kinds of business use cases, including coming up with name ideas.

You can also find domain names and domain extensions through Jasper. This won’t show you domain availability, so you’ll have to run a Google search or go through a domain broker to see what’s available.

Super neat.

They also have Jasper Art, an AI image generator, if you need a cool logo maker.

Price: Starts at $24/mo and Boss Mode plan begins at $49/mo

2. Copy AI

Copy AI is another popular AI copywriting tool.

Like Jasper, it is built on GPT-3 technology. But Copy AI relies much more heavily on templates and verticalized use cases, whereas Jasper is a bit more open ended and customizable.

In some ways, this means Copy AI is much easier to use, especially if you have a concrete use case like coming up with unique business name ideas.

For example, they have a completely free product & business name generator:

In their template, they give you an open text editor that you can use to describe your business or product.

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.13.13 pm

While I find Copy AI useful to brainstorm ideas based on some simple inputs, I just use it as a starting point. The final decision comes after a bit of fine tuning from my team.

Price: free for up to 2,000 words, then $49/mo for unlimited word generation.

3. Writesonic

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.15.09 pm

Writesonic is another AI writing software built on top of GPT-3 (there are a ton of these, huh?).

This one is kind of a blend between Jasper and Copy AI, in that it has some open form functionality as well as a ton of templates.

What differentiates Writesonic is its pricing model: it’s much more flexible than the others, allowing you to choose the content quality (though I can’t imagine why you’d want to choose the poor quality option).

The interface is pretty much the exact same as Copy AI’s product name template. Give it some background information and some target keywords, and you get a few naming options.

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.17.40 pm

Price: they offer a free version. $12.67/month from there.

4. ChatGPT

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.32.12 pm

ChatGPT is an interactive and endless customizable language model developed by OpenAI.

It has risen to incredible popularity recently, and for good reason. It’s fun to use and the outputs are shockingly good.

See the above example for sleep socks. I added lots of context on target audience and competitor analysis. Generally, the better your prompts, the better the outputs.

Here’s another example for a dog food brand:

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.33.25 pm

You’ll notice it can’t detect domain name availability. You have to do that yourself.

However, this tool is low friction and is a good starting point to find a catchy product name.

Price: free for now.

5. NameMesh

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.36.22 pm

NameMesh allows you to input keywords related to your product, and then generates a list of potential product names based on those keywords. It also allows you to filter the names by different categories, such as “creative,” “short,” and “fun.”

Unlike others on this list, it can actually check domain name availability and domain extension availability for you. This generator can help factor in SEO considerations as well.

Great tool for a new online business and for an easy business name search.

Price: free

6. Namelix

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.38.13 pm

Namelix is a business name generator based on artificial intelligence to generate product names based on keywords and industry.

Namelix uses machine learning algorithms to create a list of potential names, and it allows you to filter the names by different categories such as “catchy”, “brandable” and “SEO friendly.”

It’s also functionally a logo maker (though the logos aren’t great, but they can be a good starting point for your desired product creation).

7. Oberlo Product Name Generator

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.40.09 pm

Oberlo has their own business name generator. This tool generates a list of potential product names based on keywords that you input.

This is one of the simpler tools on this list. It doesn’t use AI and doesn’t really let you control the inputs very much.

It just gives you a list of one word (and second word) ideas for brainstorming without considering other important factors for your brand.

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.40.27 pm

Still, a good place to begin if you’re starting from scratch and need inspiration.

Price: free

8. Wordlab

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.47.41 pm

Wordlab is a nice online business tool to both find a domain name and a business name.

However, it kind of sucks.

Their business name generator just gives you a list of random words. No inputs or important factors related to your brand. Just a bunch of random business names:

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.48.18 pm

I guess this could be useful for finding inspiration, though. But for a brand name generator, you’d hope to get a little more specific on your specific use case.

Price: free

9. Anadea Product Name Generator

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.49.25 pm

Anadea’s product name generator is a solid free business name generator.

It lets you pop in a keyword related to your product and generates a bunch of business names. In my opinion, they’re not great.

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.54.04 pm

The business names are just your specific keyword plus a second word. This might help you with creative product names, but it’s not a top tier brand name generator.

Price: free

10. Hypotenuse AI

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.55.34 pm

Hypotenuse AI is a full service AI copywriting tool with features for long form content as well as product descriptions and business names.

They’re pretty similar to Copy AI, with a focus on templates, including a brand name generator. They also have features for blog posts and social media as well as an AI art tool.

One feature I like (unrelated to business names) is their content detective tool. This allows you to research factual information with AI. Great tool to generate names quickly.

Price: same as Jasper

11. BrandBucket

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 2.58.01 pm

BrandBucket’s product naming tool is a tool that gives you creative business names as well as domain availability.

You enter a few keywords and it spits out logos, business names, and domain options.

Screen shot 2023-01-21 at 3.04.45 pm

I have to say, though, I was pretty disappointed with the outputs. While it does give you product name ideas, they have nothing to do with your product, target audience, potential customers, or any of the inputs you enter. The only thing it does is check domain availability.

Seems more like a funnel to sell domains than a tool to generate unique business names or product names.

Price: free

3 Tips for Choosing a Product Name

Naming a product isn’t easy.

It’s one of the most important decisions you’ll make as a product manager, and it can have lasting implications for your success.

A great name will help customers remember your product, while a bad name could cause confusion and turn people away.

So how do you go about coming up with the perfect product name?

1. Research Other Products in Your Space

The best way to come up with a great product name is to research other products in your space.

Look at what other companies are doing right—and wrong—with their names, and see if there are any patterns or trends you should be aware of.

This can give you ideas for names that might work for your own product, as well as areas to avoid in order to differentiate yourself from the competition. You don’t want to copy what other businesses are doing, but it helps to know what landscape you’re operating within.

2. Test Out Different Names

Once you’ve done some research, it’s time to start brainstorming names for your own product.

Create a list of potential names and consider how they might be perceived by customers. Try out different combinations of words and get feedback from others on which ones seem most appealing or memorable.

Even if you don’t end up using these specific names, this exercise can provide valuable insights into what kind of names might work best for your product.

If you can afford it, you can test your product name in front of your potential customers using Wynter or in front of random people using Five Second Test.

3. Think About Branding

When it comes to naming products, branding is key.

You want customers to associate the name with the features and benefits of your product—so try to come up with something that will evoke those feelings when someone hears it or reads it online.

Consider how certain words sound when spoken aloud, as well as how they look when written down (e.g., shorter words are typically easier to read).

It’s also important to think about how the name will fit within your larger brand identity—you don’t want it to be too generic or too different from the rest of your branding efforts.

Businesses need to consider the longevity of their business name as well as any new product names they come up with for new launches.

Conclusion

Coming up with the perfect product name takes time and effort, but it’s worth it in the long run.

I like to use a tool like Jasper or another generative AI tool to give me some new words and unique product name ideas, and then refine.

Keep these tips in mind when crafting a name for your own product and you’ll be able to make an informed decision that reflects both customer needs and brand identity alike.

With enough research, careful thought, and testing, you’ll be able to create a unique and memorable name that people won’t soon forget.
