I'm here to talk about store names. You know, the ones you think of when building a brand for your business? The ones that make you say "wow" or "huh?" The ones that get people intrigued and interested in what you're selling. And not just any names—the ones that are unique and creative, and cool.
Well, there are tons of ways to come up with unique store names. You can do research on Google or Pinterest or even ask other people for their ideas. And then there's always the old-fashioned way: brainstorming with friends or family members. But sometimes those methods don't work out so well…especially when everyone has different opinions on what makes something good.
That's why we've put together this shop name list of 40 store name ideas for you! They're all great shop name suggestions for coming up with some new ideas for a good name for your shop—and hopefully, one (or more!) will be just right for you.
Unique shop and store name ideas
When shopping for name ideas, these unique store names will help you find a shop name that stands out from the crowd.
Whether trying to come up with a clever pun or just a plain old weird name, these names are sure to inspire you!
1. The Sunny Cat
The Sunny Cat is a great name for a store that sells cat-themed items. It's a play on the words "sun" and "cat," which are two things that go together really well, especially if you're a cat person. It's also a great way to simultaneously make people think of sunny days and cute cats.
If you ask me, that's what branding is all about: connecting your brand with something people already love. If you're wanting to start your own business and don't have any ideas yet, keep this one in mind!
2. Increda General Store
Increda General Store is an online store that sells a variety of products. They sell everything from clothing to home goods and have some pretty unique items in their inventory. I like this store's name because it's so fun to say.
I think it's a great name because it's not just a boring old name but also very descriptive of what they do. "Increda" sounds like something you'd find at a general store, and it makes me think of things like candy and snacks—not just the regular stuff one might expect to find at a general store.
3. Early Bird Roasters
I love the name Early Bird Roasters. It's so clever and cute and is definitely one of my favorite coffee shop names. It makes sense that they would call themselves "Early Bird Roasters" because they roast their beans in the morning, which is cool.
The name is also great because it's simple to remember, which is important for a business like theirs (you know, since people are going in for coffee).
4. The Arriving Crow
This is a good name for a company that is just starting out. It's simple and conveys the idea that you're new, but you're coming in with a lot of enthusiasm and energy. It also has a nice ring—it sounds like the crow is coming to get you! It's also a great name for a blog or magazine about travel or food.
If you wanted to start up an online store that sells things for people who love traveling or eating new foods, this would be a great name because it lets people know immediately what they're getting into.
The only downside is that it might be hard to develop a good logo if you don't have any ideas yet!
5. New Way Shops
This is a really cool idea for a shop. It's not the kind I'd expect to see in my local store, but it's definitely the kind I'd want to see. I love how they're trying to use their name as their branding and then using that branding to create an entire aesthetic. It's like they have an identity as a brand, and then they're creating an entire world around it—a world that makes sense with what they're selling and how they're selling it.
This is a great example of how you can take an idea, expand on it, and turn it into something bigger than just one product or service.
6. Hendrix Fashion Shop
This is a cool name for a clothing store. The first thing that I think of is Jimi Hendrix and his music, but it also makes me think of the word "hendrix," which means something like "a trendsetter."
This name could be used for a store that sells apparel that is on trend, or it could be used for an online store that sells apparel with innovative designs.
7. My Discount Business
This one is easy and obvious, but it's still fun to say because it sounds like a "discount." It's also clear that this isn't just any ordinary discount store—this is an upscale discount store! Perfect for those who want to look classy while shopping on a budget.
8. A Little More Joy
I love the name of this store. I think it's clever because it's not just about the clothes and accessories you can buy there—it's about feeling good, too. I think that's what we all want: to feel good about ourselves and our lives. And when you shop at A Little More Joy, you can feel like you're taking steps toward that goal.
9. ColdFusion Store
I'm a huge fan of the name ColdFusion. The name is so cool and unique, it's easy to remember, and it's got that "fusion" in it. You just know they can fuse lots of things together in their store!
10. Bean and Gone
I always thought Bean and Gone was a pretty cool name. It's not just a cute play on words; it actually makes sense—you're buying coffee beans and then leaving. It's clever without being too clever, and it's also easy to say.
It might be hard to get people to remember that you're selling coffee, though, since the name doesn't really tell you anything about what you do or how you do it. If I were opening a coffee shop with this name, I'd want to make sure my branding was clear from the get-go—maybe with an eye-catching logo or an ad campaign that uses the word "bean" as much as possible.
I think this is a good idea for a business because it's simple and memorable, but it also feels like something new in today's overcrowded market of coffee stores.
Creative shop names
There are a lot of creative shop names out there. Some of them are great, some of them aren't, but all of them can give you some inspiration for your own business.
If you're looking for a creative shop name, here are some of my favorites.
11. HighPerformance Store
This is a great name because it sounds professional and reflects that the store sells performance-enhancing products. It's simple enough to remember and has a nice ring to it.
12. Deluxe Fine Food
Deluxe Fine Food is a unique and creative name for a food store. It's short, catchy, and easy to remember. The word "Deluxe" makes it sound much more upscale than other stores in the same category. The name also gives the impression that this store will sell high-end foods at a high price point, but it could also be used for a general grocery store.
13. Mercer Fine Foods
I love how the name is easy to remember and rolls off the tongue. It's not too long or too short, and it's simple, but it still has some personality. Plus, the name is unique. I can't think of any other restaurants with the same name.
14. The Humble Focus
I love the name The Humble Focus. It sounds like something that would be found in a quirky little boutique, but it also has a very modern, minimalist feel. It's not too long, but it's not short either—it's just right! It's also easy to remember and easy to spell, which is always a plus when it comes to branding yourself or your business.
The Humble Focus is a great example of how you can use a one-word name as your brand name and still make it unique and memorable.
15. The Pretty Project
I’m a big fan of the name The Pretty Project. It’s catchy, memorable, and has an element of whimsy to it. It could be used by a clothing store or maybe a makeup company. I think it would be great for any brand that is trying to sell itself as being fun and playful while also being professional and serious.
16. Gouda Buddha
The name is perfect for this restaurant—the "gouda" part refers to cheese (and their cheese curds are so good), and the "buddha" part refers to how much food you can eat there without gaining weight (like if you were a Buddhist).
Plus, it's a play on words: "Gouda" sounds like "good," so it makes you feel good about eating at this place!
17. All Out Sports
This name has it all: it's creative and fun, but it has a serious side to it. It would be perfect for an athletic store or a company that sells sporting goods like baseball bats or tennis rackets. It also has a bit of a playful ring to it.
This name could be used for anything from an exercise class to a sports camp for kids. Not only does this name have a lot of different connotations, but it also sounds like something people would say when they're excited about something—like "All out!" or "All right!" So if you want your business to be remembered by customers in a positive way and make them feel like they're part of the action, choose this unique name!
18. The Affordable Pixy Pharmacy
I love this name because it's playful but also kind of mysterious. The word "pixy" has a magical feel to it, and I think it has a lot of potential. I can imagine a store that sells all kinds of things—maybe even some cosmetics—and is staffed by friendly, helpful pixies. The name is simple yet interesting; it makes me want to know more about what this store would be like.
19. Smart Shopper’s Hub
This name is great because it has a lot of potential. A smart shopper is someone who makes informed decisions when they go shopping, and I think that's a pretty common type of person these days. This store could sell all kinds of things—even things like home decor or clothing! It sounds like it would be a fun place to visit, especially if you're looking for something specific and need advice from experts and products.
20. Floral and Hardy
When I think about Floral and Hardy, I think of a place that's all about making you feel good and beautiful. The name itself is so cute and fun, and it gives me the feeling that all my flowers will be taken care of by people who know how to take care of them but also know how to treat you like royalty.
Funny and catchy names for shops
Funny and catchy names for shops are great because they help people remember the name of your store.
It's important to have a memorable name that people can associate with your business, especially if you're just starting out!
21. Flowers and Such
Flowers and Such is a great name for a flower shop. It's simple, but it has a certain charm to it. It's also pretty easy to remember, which is important when you're trying to run a business!
I love how straightforward this name is. You know exactly what you're getting into with Flowers and Such: flowers and such (as in, whatever else you might need for your floral arrangements). I mean literally—it's literally a flower shop!
It also makes me think that this place is going to be pretty cheap because it doesn't seem like they're going to have any frills or extras. But I guess at some point, you have to decide what kind of price point you want to offer your customers, right?
So maybe they just decided that they would rather save money on things like decorating their storefronts or fancy packaging and invest that money into growing their own plants instead! That sounds like something I would do too!
22. Hidden Gift Store
The Hidden Gift Store is a great name for an online store that sells unique gifts. I love this name because it's got a lot of personality, but it's also easy to remember. The only thing I'd change is the use of "store." It makes me think that they're selling food or clothing, so maybe they could change it to something like "shop" or "storefront"?
23. Strawberries and Cream
Strawberries and cream is a delicious, refreshing treat, which makes it the best name for a new store or business. Strawberries are sweet and delicious but are also known for their health benefits. Strawberries contain antioxidants that help prevent cancer and heart disease—and they taste great!
Cream is also a healthy choice. It's rich in vitamin D, calcium, and protein, so it can help you stay fit while you enjoy your favorite dessert. Plus, it tastes amazing when combined with strawberries!
So if you're looking for a name for your new business or store that conveys the message of healthy eating while still sounding delicious, then strawberries and cream might be just what you need!
24. The Pampered Petal
The Pampered Petal is a great name for a flower shop. It's fun, it's clever, and it's memorable. The name is also very specific, which helps people find the store when they're looking for it. It's also ideal for a flower shop because it has a double meaning: "pampered" can refer to the flowers themselves or to their human owners who love them so much they have to be pampered.
25. Unique Online Store
The name Unique Online Store is perfect for a website selling only one product type. The word "unique" implies that the store carries items that no other store does, so it's an ideal choice for companies who want to stand out from the crowd.
26. The Shine Lab
The Shine Lab is a great name for a store. It's simple and easy to remember, but it also has a little bit of a twist to it. Instead of just calling the store "Shine," which would be boring and predictable, the owner decided to play with the words "shine" and "lab" to come up with something more memorable and fun. It's also very descriptive: This is a place where you can get your car shined up so that it looks like new again! It gets right to the point without being too wordy or confusing.
27. Digital Daily Deals
Digital Daily Deals is a great name for an online store. It's simple and easy to remember, but it also has a little bit of a twist to it. Instead of just calling the store "Digital Daily Deals," which would be boring and predictable, the owner decided to play with the words "digital" and "daily deals" to come up with something more memorable and fun. It's also very descriptive: This is a place where you can get daily deals on all kinds of products!
28. Come to Market
Come to Market is a great name for an online store or business. It's simple, descriptive, and catchy! It also has some nice wordplay going on: Come to market is a phrase that means "to sell something," so this is saying that this store will help you come up with ideas for selling your products.
29. The Bargaining Pal
The Bargaining Pal is a great name for a business offering discounts on items. It's also a great name for an app that helps you bargain down your purchases.
I love this name because it makes me think of a friendly, helpful pal who can help me find the best prices on things I want. It's also fun to say—the "Pal" part just rolls off the tongue! And it sounds like it would be easy to remember and refer to, which is important when you're trying to promote a brand or product.
30. The Munch Club
If you're looking for a quirky name for your new store or restaurant, The Munch Club is a great choice. It's short and sweet, but it also has a bit of whimsy to it. It's not funny in the same way that other names on this list are funny, but it is still unusual enough that people will remember it.
The name might sound like it could be used by anyone selling food—like a grocery store that also serves sandwiches—but because of its connection to munching (as in eating), you can use this name for restaurants that don't serve any food at all! Just think about how many clubs are named after foodstuffs—the "club sandwich," the "smoked salmon club," etc.—and you'll see how this name could be used for anything from a club for people who enjoy eating bread to one made up entirely of people who love peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.
Just keep in mind that if you choose this name, think carefully about whether or not you want to encourage people to come in and munch on something while they're there!
Cool names for a store
If you're looking for a name that sounds cool, try one of these! These names all have a lot going on in their syllables and can be used in businesses from clothing stores to restaurants.
Just don't let the positivity fool you: as with most of these words, there's always a way to use them negatively if you want to!
31. Angels Big Mart
Angels Big Mart is a unique name that makes me think of angels, but I also like it because it sounds like a grocery store. It's where you can find everything you need to cook a meal, buy food for your pet, or get the supplies you need to make your own beer at home.
32. Potions and Lotions
The name Potions and Lotions is a great one. It's edgy and quirky, but it doesn't come off as too much so. It's also easy to remember and understand, which makes it easy to talk about the brand with customers. The name is also memorable—you won't forget it once you hear it! And that's what we want when we're trying to sell something: for people to remember our product and come back for more!
If you're looking for something similar but don't want to be so on the nose with your branding, consider Potions and Lotions.
33. StarCave General Store
I can't get enough of the name "StarCave General Store." It's so fun and quirky!
I love that it evokes the feeling of being in a cave, which is probably what someone would feel like if they went into this store. I'm thinking something like "Deep Cave General Store" or "Black Hole General Store." Then you could offer things like "Space Rock Candy" and "Cosmic Hot Sauce."
The only thing I don't love about this name is that it doesn't make me think of food, which is something we all need when we're shopping for groceries. So maybe if you want to add some food items to your store, consider calling it "StarCave General Store And Grocery."
34. Pridopex General Store
This unique and creative store name is sure to get people's attention. I think the name is fun, and I love how it incorporates both the word "pride" and "dope." Our generation uses these two words in our everyday speech, so this name would be easy to remember and relate to.
This store name is perfect for someone who loves being different but wants their business to stand out. The best part about this name is that it could work for almost any type of business—it would work for a clothing store and a restaurant!
35. The Herbal Project
The Herbal Project is a great name for a store that sells herbs and spices. It has the word "herb" in it, a key ingredient in cooking and herb-based medicines. "Herbal" also sounds like the word "heal," which is what you want your customers to feel when they enter your store—their health is supported by the products you sell them.
The name also has an air of mystery: What exactly is an "herbal project"? The word "project" suggests that there's something special about this store, something new and exciting.
The name also evokes a feeling of calmness and tranquility, which is perfect for people looking for a way to unwind after a stressful day at work or school.
36. The Flavor Project
The Flavor Project is a cool name for a store. It's an interesting play on words that immediately conveys the idea of tasting new things and exploring new flavors. The name also works well as a brand because it's short, easy to remember, and not likely to be confused with any other brand.
37. The Calm Bird
The Calm Bird is a great name for a coffee shop. The name is short and sweet, and it's interesting enough to make people stop and think about what it means. Is it a calm bird or a coffee shop that makes you feel calm?
I love the idea of naming a coffee shop after something that makes you feel good. It's an idea that's not as common as it should be, but I think it's really cool.
38. Fit Sew Good
I love the name Fit Sew Good. It's a perfect mix of hip and practical, which is exactly what I want in a clothing store. I like how it's not just a straight-up pun on sewing and fitness but also a play on the word "fit," as in "healthy."
39. The Glorious Store
I really like the name The Glorious Store. It's an interesting twist on "glorious," It makes me think of how I feel when I enter a store with great products. Just saying the name makes me feel happy and ready to spend money!
40. The Glam Connection
I love the name The Glam Connection. It sounds so glamorous, and I can picture myself walking into a store that has this name. I think it's a great way to let customers know what they will find in your store: lots of fun accessories for any occasion!
If you're looking for a cool, unique name for your store, we hope this list of 40 names has been helpful! Remember that when you're naming your store, it's important to think about how people will be able to pronounce the name and what associations it will create in their minds.
Good luck with your new business!
