What is a good name for a cupcake shop?
A good cupcake store name should be memorable, not too long and somehow related with cupcakes or the act of baking. After looking at many names of existing cupcake shops, that's what their names have in common.
From what I can see there are three approaches to name your cupcake store:
- Combine a bakery word with one or more words of your own. Many cupcake shops use words like bake, bakery, bar, cafe, cakes, company, cupcake or kitchen, shop. Nothing fancy but we don't need to make it more complicated than necessary. If you are a bakery or cupcake shop, it is good to include that in your name because that's what you sell really. A flower shop uses the word flower, a pet shop uses the words pets or animals and a bakery can refer to the fine act of baking in its name.
- Combine a tasteful word with one or more words of your own. Some cupcake stores don't have the name cupcake or bakery but they simply use words like sugar, sweet, delight, delicious or tasty. You can also use plurals such as sweets, treats or delights. Other commonly used words are cute, love and little. These words are used to associate cupcakes with a tasty place or feeling. More examples are divine, heaven, heavenly or dream. You can also refer to the process of making cupcakes by using words as frostings and icings.
- Name the cupcake shop after yourself. If you cannot come up with a creative name that you are satisfied with then you can always name the store after yourself. If your name is Emma then Emma's Cupcakes, Emma's Bakery or Cupcakes by Emma are memorable, accurate and people will definitely remember your name if you bake well. There's no need to worry if you use this name because it is hard to go wrong with it. It is better to choose a name for your cupcake shop that you are fully happy with than a name you will regret after a few years. You can always rename your store but you'll have to spend time, money and effort to let people know that you have changed the name.
