The Downsides of Poor Brand Naming

  2. Negative Connotations:
    Be mindful of hidden meanings or cultural references that might have unintended negative connotations. "Disaster Recovery Solutions" might not be the best name for a crisis mitigation company.

  3. Legal Landmines:
    Trademark infringement can become a costly and reputation-tarnishing nightmare. Don't build your brand on borrowed sand.

  4. Marketing Misalignment:
    A name that clashes with your brand's vision and target audience can confuse and alienate potential customers. Imagine a luxury fashion brand called "Bargain Basement Boutique." Not a good look.
