Tips for naming a Bakery Business

What’s the perfect name for a bakery? It obviously should evoke an emotion, a feeling of comfort and warmth linked to freshly baked goods. Translating that sentiment in just a few words, however, isn’t easy. To name your bakery, you have to stay true to your brand concept while also differentiating yourself from the competition. Keeping those essentials in mind, here are a few very specific and relevant tips for naming a bakery.

  1. Make it meaningful to everyone: you may have a great idea that carries a ton of personal significance but would somebody interested in buying a few cupcakes understand the concept? Using the nickname that your friends came up with for you could be highly significant but people aren’t going to get it. The same applies to a very abstract interpretation of baking that will necessitate a ton of analysis to get. When in doubt, ask a few people about your idea. If they get it, you can go ahead with the name.
  2. Provoke a sensation: people should easily “feel” the taste and the scent of your baked goods when they hear the name. Descriptive words that suggest sweetness, fluffiness, a texture or a yummy scent can help you accomplish that. Think of adjectives like scrumptious, golden, flaky, chocolatey, fresh, hot, homemade, oven-baked, etc. 
  3. Be careful about puns: while a pun can result in a fun, memorable name, you have to be careful. Some people enjoy puns a lot and others will be seriously annoyed by them. If you’re going to use a baking-related pun, make sure that it’s amazing and that it hasn’t been used already a thousand times. Yes, meeting these criteria will be somewhat difficult but the result will be worth the effort.

Do give these tips a try and keep them in mind if you use our Name Generator – the two can give you an original, relevant and sensory name that’s perfect for your bakery. If you’re looking for a bit of additional inspiration, check out the bakery name analysis below.

Bakery Business name analysis

If you’re still stuck on creating some name ideas, here’s a breakdown of some of the top brands and businesses in the industry. Here I’ll explain why the name works for that company, and how the name appeals to customers. What’s more, a few more team members from BizNameWiz have added their name ideas below aswell!

The CinnaMan

Here’s a fun twist of cinnamon that’s casual and that lets a potential client know just what to expect. The word “cinnamon” is one of those stimulating the senses. Everyone can imagine the scent of a cinnamon roll, for example. As a result, the name works really well and makes a statement.

The Slice

While this one is a bit more open to interpretation, it still works in the context of a bakery. Can you visualize a delicious slice of pie? Most people can and they’ll be eager to get one.

Frost Goddess

The first part of the name is immediately suggestive of baking, cakes and cupcakes. The word goddess demonstrates the business owner’s confidence and skill. It establishes reputation and know-how, making people trust the quality of the baked goods.

Cake O’Clock

Here’s a fun pun that works well and makes people smile. It is humorous, it is relevant and it carries a distinctive vibe that establishes the brand’s tone.

The Bread Basket

The name focuses on a visual everyone can immediately retrieve from their mind. A bread basket filled with delicious, hot buns that have just been taken out of the oven. Very few people will be capable of resisting this visual, just passing by the bakery without going inside.
