What Do I Get On Top of NameBounce's Free Tool?
With paid access, you get the following:
1) Full access to ALL of our name ideas. (With the free tool, you get access to a small percentage of our total names.) Within the remaining ideas, you'll find some highly unique and advanced naming techniques. They create exceptional brand names, and believe it or not, many of them will have available .COM domains.
2) Targeted two- and three-word name searches. Basically, this helps you find names that are more closely related to your input keywords.
3) The Naming Word Lists (over 2,000 powerful words for use in brand names)
4) The Name Scoring Test (rate each of your name ideas with a score)
Are the Domain Checks 100% Accurate?
Unfortunately, our initial domain availability checks are around 98% accurate. Most of the "false positives" are likely to be:
- Two-word compound .COMs (like Facebook.com or Dropbox.com).
- Alternate extensions, especially country-code domains like .CO, .DE, or .IN.
We are hoping to find a permanent fix for this eventually, but in the meantime we implemented two workarounds:
Workaround #1: You can click on any name to definitively check domain availability with our partner registrar, Domain.com.
Workaround #2: At the top of your list of favorited names, there is a "Copy Domains" button.
If you click that button, you can paste your favorited domains into a Bulk Domain Checker, which will check them all at once.
Thank you so much for your understanding!
How Do I Know It's For Me?
The biggest advantage to NameBounce is that you can see whether or not it works for you extremely quickly.
It's not like a typical business / motivational course, where you MAY see results in six months to a year. You'll start seeing your first name ideas a few minutes from now. And there's a good chance that you already used NameBounce already and liked it.
In the unlikely event that it DOESN'T work for you, you can request a refund. All you need to do is fill out a form with your name, email, and order number. Then, we take care of it. There's no awkwardness!
How Long Does it Take?
It truly depends on your style. If you are decisive, you could have selected your name (pending a formal trademark search) within the hour.
Of course, you may want to sit with the names for a while, or brainstorm a ton of ideas. (I fall into this camp!) In this case, it's important to mention that NameBounce is scalable enough to generate 10, 100, or 1,000 incredible name ideas. It's highly automated and efficient - all you have to do is sit back and pick the names you like.
And remember, the Name Scoring Test makes it easy to pick the names!
Do I Need to Be Creative?
Not at all! NameBounce requires no creativity whatsoever. All you need to do is enter an input word and pick a name that you like. And even if you think choosing your name may be hard, the Name Scoring Test will make it super easy!
How Much More Will I Have to Spend on Naming?
We recommend getting a professional trademark search. This goes beyond the direct trademark check, and tries to find confusingly similar names. The search will be conducted either by an attorney or an AI-based trademark search platform.
We highly recommend a trademark search for any new name. You won't need to incur this cost simply because you purchased access to NameBounce.
With the provider we recommend, a full trademark search costs between $129 and $219 for three names (which is massively discounted from other online services).
If you're starting with a tiny budget, I recommend adding the "Business Naming Toolkit" to your order on the checkout page. It contains a Name Availability Screener. Obviously, that isn't a substitute for a full trademark search. But it will help you eliminate names that are obvious legal issues.
Do You Recommend Using NameBounce for Product Names?
NameBounce can certainly create product names! But it's not our primary focus. Our focus is on naming business, startups, and brands.
That doesn't mean you can't find the perfect product name, though! If you're on the fence, my advice is to purchase access, and try it out to see if it works for your product. If it doesn't, you can request a no-hassle refund.
What Language Does NameBounce Use to Create Names?
We designed NameBounce to find English-based business names. We are hoping to adapt our search algorithm to other languages in the future!
You can still use words in other languages as a search word on NameBounce! This will create compound names or blends that combine English and your desired language.
An example of a major brand using this technique is Panera Bread. While their name is based on the Italian language, the word "pan" means bread in Spanish.
