Personally, I pride myself in being able to conjure ideas of business names out of thin air better than most people.
One of the reasons why is because I seek to think up names that are brandable and memorable.
How to create the perfect name for your Italian Restaurant
Before I go into the list of Italian restaurant names, I want to highlight some tips to guide you in crafting your own.
Let’s face it. You can take a look at all my name ideas and none of them might click for you.
According to Fable Melbourne, here are a few pointers that should help you on your path to coining that blockbuster Italian Restaurant name:
Tip 1: Use your name
This is basically a naming hack most people overlook.
It’s a no-brainer that one could simply just use their first or last name and more or less project that “branded” vibe.
For example, my name is Richard. For as long as I can remember, all the business name ideas I’ve ever come up with either had a suffix or prefix with the name “Richee”.
Like “Richeelicious” (the name of this food blog) or “Richeetech” (the name of my tech blog).
Another great reason to use your own Initials in choosing your ideal Italian Restaurant business name is for ease of online discovery.
You want to avoid a situation where your potential customers are searching for your brand name on Google search and are seeing something totally different from your business.
Tip 2: Use Italy
If you want to tell people that you sell Italian food, there’s no better way to let them know than to add the name “Italian” in your Italian Restaurant name.
A more effective hack would be to use Tip 1 and Tip 2 in a combo. E.g – Your name + Italian.
Like “Richee’s Italian” or “Freddy Italiano”.
Tip 3: KISS
Keep it short and simple.
The whole essence of “Branding” in a business name is for it to be memorable.
No one has the luxury of patience trying to cram your business name that just happens to be 5 words long.
So keep it short & simple. Shoot for 2 words max.
