How to Name a Coffee Shop?   

A catchy name is an important part of success in any business, so if you are going to open your own coffee shop, you need to consider all principles of naming to come up with your own attention-grabbing name. The numerous samples of the names and careful description of the main groups will help you complete this task without any difficulties.

How to name a coffee shop?   

The names of such business have their own specificities: they are very diverse and do not necessarily include the keywords (though most of them include the word ‘coffee’ or are associated with this beverage). However, they can still be divided into the main groups. This classification can help a business owner understand the main strategies of naming and create his or her own clever name that will attract the customers.

  1. Names that include the word ‘bean’. The inclusion of this word allows drawing direct parallels with coffee, i.e. the name becomes thematic. This keyword is usually combined with adjectives, for instance, Screamin’ Beans, Roasted Beans, or with nouns, for example, The Bean Palace, The Beans & Cream, etc.
  2. Names that include the word ‘espresso’. This category is similar to the previous group. The keyword ‘espresso’ is used to create such names as Espresso Café, Espresso Patronum (great pun for Harry Potter fans), Nespresso Boutique Bar, Everyman Espresso, and so forth.
  3. One-word coffee shop names. Though these names are usually not as creative as the complicated ones, they are simple and therefore catchy, for example, Elixir, Coffeeville, Baristas, Restore, The Elk, etc.
  4. Two-word coffee shop and café names. Most of these names that do not include any of the above-mentioned keywords but include the other ones: ‘coffee’, ‘cafe’, ‘coffeehouse’, and ‘coffee shop’. The most popular schemes are The Coffee + Noun, Noun + Coffee, Adjective + Coffee, Café + Noun, Café + Adjective, Coffee + Noun, and Coffee + Adjective. They can also include the articles and prepositions that usually turn them into a phrase with a certain meaning. The most interesting names in this category are The Coffee Ethic, Enigma Coffee, Insomnia Café, Nature’s Brew, Daily Dose, Coffee Republic, Café Latte, and Barista Parlor.
  5. Names that include three and more words. This category is the most diverse. Most of the names are somehow related for coffee (due to the inclusion of keywords and phrases or due to the drawing direct or indirect parallels with the sphere of business). The most catchy and attention-grabbing variants are Go Get Em Tiger, SteamPunk Coffeebar And Kitchen, Eternity Coffee Roasters, Hole in the Wall Coffee, Whole Latte Love, Alchemist Coffee Project, and so forth.
