to ask you to name my business..?

Firstly, I apologise. I know there have been a slew of these requests with the new year. But reading some of the suggested names, I was so impressed..

So, I was hoping someone might be able to help me...

I have a company that produces decorative outdoor screens and lattices. Up until now I had just been trading under a generic ltd company name but am hoping to market more extensively in the new year.

Problem is, is I have no clever name for the business.. At all.

Basically the business sells decorative/design led outdoor/garden things. Not just screens/lattices, but that is the core product. So I don't really want the name to contain the word "screens" or reference screens in particular, as we do sell other things..

Am adding a picture of one of the products but will happily remove if it is viewed as not appropriate/marketing.

Thank you!!!

The Garden Room? Outdoor Living?

I'm hopeless at this kind of thing..... I know what you mean about not wanting to include words that may limit your marketing or confuse people as to what you offer. There are a couple of websites about (I forget the names) that can help generate ideas - you type in some keywords and it produces suggestions for you.

Love the pic - wish my garden looked like that!! Good luck smile

Hi Op!
That picture looks lovely smile
Off the top of my head:

The Other Side ( gives a nod to the trellis/lattice screens you sell )

The Garden Gate

The Inside Out

I'll try and think of some more.

frazzled3ds Thank you so much. I have messed around with the online ones and even paid some marketing people to come up with some suggestions but I am getting no where (and have no budget for it, sadly!). I just have zero creative flare for this type of thing...

Bipbopbee Ohhh thank you!!

Gorgeous Gardens

Screen Dreams (I know you said not screens but just in case it sparks another idea!)

I like Outdoor Living suggested by PP, that idea of making your garden part of your daily living space. That's the sort of thing I think you're trying to convey?

Snakes and Lattice?

Oh I love these thanks so much.

As strange as it sounds I had also hoped to steer away from using "Garden" possibly, as the screens are often used on balconies, small patios/terraces in London etc. Not sure if Garden sounds too.. expansive?

FauxFox is your own name Sophie?

FauxFox Fri 27-Jan-17 13:58:11

Nope grin

FauxFox Fri 27-Jan-17 14:04:33

I think you would still call a patio/terrace/courtyard your garden? They do on Rightmove...

HelpP1ease Fri 27-Jan-17 14:10:18

Yes.. I am probably over thinking the meaning of the word garden.

one of the biggest garden type suppliers mail order is primrose.co.uk

a very simple related name, but not directly saying what they do...
you need to make sure that you can secure:
- domain names
- trademarks (and that you are not breaching someone else's)

ultimately, whatever you chose - building the business and branding means that eventually it will be synonymous with your business - after all, no-one now would start a tech company and call it Apple, a telco and call it BT, a car company and call it Land Rover or Jaguar etc. - but the brand has been built on those names and now works...
