There’s no magic formula for choosing a brand name. To make matters worse, even when you discover what you think is the perfect name, you’ll continuously second guess yourself. Most understand the basics of forming a memorable brand name: keep it simple, short, unique, flexible and easy to pronounce. But then it starts to get a little grey. Should it be suggestive or descriptive? Empty vessel or compound? Acronym or misspelled? Or perhaps a real word like Apple or Amazon?
