Help Me Name My New Company!

Hey Ozbargainers!

So I've completed many home loans in the last few years for many OzBargainers as a Home Lending Manager for a major bank - I've now made the move to open up my own company as a Mortgage Broker in the next couple of weeks.

I need your help with the name!

The names I keep thinking of are either too cheesy/unforgettable/already taken.

I think I'd like along the lines of 'XYZ Finance' -give me your suggestions!

I've set up a poll with a couple of my favourites.

Thanks, Aidan.

      Yep, why didn't I think of that?!

  •  

    Whatever you do, don't make the mistake of picking a name that does not show up in a search engine, e.g. by picking something that matches commonly used words ("percent finance" will give you heaps of false positives drowning out your name), or an existing name of some other company somewhere.

    Word of warning: Blue Owl finance will be quite a hoot. They'll end up calling you Giggle.

    OP - I voted a couple days ago for Marble Finance, but since then I have thought back on this post a couple times and always remembered one of the options - Treetop. I had to click back in to this thread to even remember the name I voted on. So, I change my vote. Treetop clearly more memorable with me at least.

    •  

      Marble was the first pick a couple of weeks ago, I quickly moved on from it. Would have been a cool looking background for a website, but not much else.

    Honest suggestion…

    Think about the name as a tool. If you plan to one day have this become a big company with employees, and/or you plan to buy leads and call and represent your brand name, you want it to sound fancy.

    What I mean by that, is you want it to sound legit. Australian Finance and Mortgage sounds a lot more "legit" than GreenTree Mortgages or whatever the top pole option was.

    Alternatively use a name that someone may think "yeah I've heard of that word before…seems like a legit company"

    E.g. you've heard of Aussie Home loans. So perhaps you can call yourself Aussie Mortgage Loans

    Incoming negs for unethical decision blah blah. But trust me. I had a mate. He started a mortgage company and named it something "Legit". And he said that helped him build credibility. Now he has upwards of 50+ employees.

      That's why I think something like pocket finance works.

      Makes perfect sense, I've pretty much made my mind up on the name and thinking against Treetop for that exact reason.

          Cheers Josho, let me know if you need a home loan. Or a better home loan!

    I’m impressed at the responses to this thread. Thought about posting the same in relation to our business but thought the backlash would be fierce.

    Great response Ozbargain!

      If you want to be towards the top of the yellow pages listing you need those A's.

      Hey @assets thanks, means a lot, the feedback has been nothing short of amazing.

    Jokes aside, all the best OP! =)


    Lol the comments are hilarious

    If there's a tinder profile for the company, you can have this pick up line: I can fix your loanliness ;)

      Thanks zrmx, maybe I could start a side business?

  •  

    Pick something unique to locate you on Google.
    Not tried it but "Green Grass Mortgage Brokers" is probably more unique then "Excellent Mortgage Broker".

    Or if you prefer a yellow pages style name "AAAAA Best Mortgage Broker"
