Tips for naming a Hipster Business

Hipsters tend to fall into the 18-35 age range, are eager to learn, and desire to carve out their own authentic style. When you think of a hipster business, it could fall under any number of cultural industries and commercial umbrellas. Is your hipster business involved in fashion, food and beverages, technology, entertainment, healthcare, literature, or beauty products? Hipster business names will often consist of a pair of words that typically are both nouns, but one could be a descriptive adjective. When they merge together, they create something new and catchy. Learn what it takes to have a hipster business name that catches the attention of a younger consumer demographic, as well as those that are older but plugged into modern trends.

  1. Two Distinctive Terms: Hipster names tend to consist of two words that appear to have nothing in common and create a brand-new meaning when they are unified. Also, when hipster business names are created with two main words, they are often joined with “and,” “&,” or “+” between them. This helps to give the company an ironic feeling of a private law practice or an old school retail store.
  2. Beyond the Norm: If your hipster business name sounds too typical- it isn’t a hipster name. What word(s) can you bring into your industry that will shake things up and be truly unique because they have no obvious association with it?   
  3. Immediately Memorable: When you are deciding upon a hipster business name, let people you know, and trust read the name and pay close attention to their reaction. If they subtly nod and quickly go back to what they are doing, come up with other options. If they flinch or perk their face up into a grin, you are on to something. 
  4. Simple to Pronounce: Don’t get wrapped with words that lack vowels or are extremely long just to be kitschy and different. People have to actually be able to say your hipster business name in order to talk about it with other people. If they have to preference your business by saying, “I think it is called…” then your business is in trouble.

Hipster 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!

Urban Outfitters

Even though Urban Outfitters has its headquarters in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, it is a multinational lifestyle retailer carrying plenty of hipster-friendly fashion brands in Canada, India, Italy, France, the United Kingdom, and throughout Europe. Urban Outfitters sounds sleek, timeless, professional, but also hip enough to be aspirational for clothing fanatics to brag about getting their clothes from there.

Brainfeeder

Brainfeeder is an eclectic record label based in Los Angeles. Founded by experimental music producer and DJ, Flying Lotus, Brainfeeder has been home to songs from artists as diverse as the jazzy Kamasi Washington to the legendary funk master George Clinton. Not only does Brainfeeder sound odd enough to provoke curiosity, but it is also easy enough to read and apply some meaning to. This is the place to find music that will challenge your tastes.

Heart Machine

Another hipster brand in the forward-thinking spirit is the independent video game development company known as Heart Machine, headquartered in Culver City, California, that released the game Hyper Light Drifter in 2016. The word “heart” is normally associated with Valentine’s Day cards or the medical field. “Machine” sounds like electronics, which is a little bit closer to the video game industry. These two words are a perfect example of when opposites attract in a hipster name, creating a visual picture in your mind.

Bali Body

Bali Body is a hipster business that emerged from Melbourne, Australia, and offers self-tanning products, sun care, skincare, and cosmetic options for customers looking to indulge in a golden glow. Even though Bali is not where the Bali Body products come from; it is still a popular vacation destination where people enjoy the sun- the perfect image for tanning products.
