Let these app name ideas help spark your creativity
We’ve put together some inspiring and catchy name ideas from our App Name Generator to help you along your journey.
What makes a good app name?
A good app name should be memorable, unique and reflect the business category you’re in. To find a name that's perfect for your application, start by thinking about the vibe you want to create. For example, do you want your app to be sleek and cutting-edge or more playful?
It's also a good idea to pick an app name that isn't too specific. Instead of naming your mobile app "Task Manager for Teachers," you could go for "Efficiency Task Manager" to give you flexibility around the features you offer and demographic you serve.
Keeping the right adjectives in mind can help create the feeling you want users to have when they see your app name. Remember, your app name is a huge part of your digital brand, so make sure it reflects your app's personality, resonates with your target users and leaves a lasting impression.

Get to know your target audience
Take time to understand how potential users speak about products similar to yours. Make sure the name you choose fits their language and that the content you’re putting out speaks to their needs.
Scope out the competition
See what your competitors are doing in order to stand out. The name you come up with should be different, bold and unforgettable. Be sure to run a thorough search to make sure the name you choose isn’t already taken.
Plan for the future
If you plan on going global, check that the name you choose has positive connotations in different languages. Mapping out campaigns in advance can also help you decide if the name will stay relevant as your business grows.
Get feedback on your new name
Once you’ve chosen a name that you like, run it past potential users or people in your industry to see what they think. Take note of their comments and reactions, and keep in mind any biases they may have.
