How To Come Up With Your Own Hot Sauce Name
The best methods to come up with your own name for your hot sauce is to incorporate your name (or make up a fictional character), focus on the hot sauces qualities (flavor, heat profile, ingredients) or mention the location or story behind your sauce.
It’s also a good idea to consider the target market for your hot sauce.
Are you selling to those looking for the hottest hot sauce, or one that’s a little milder?
Are you trying to establish yourself as a premium brand, or a lower-price brand focused on higher unit selling (and for daily use).
Nevertheless, you want your hot sauce name to be unique, memorable and short/punchy.
Of course, try not to get too set on a name (to begin with).
What’s most important is the flavor and quality of your sauce.
A few other quick suggestons.
Read prospective names aloud and run them by your friends and family.
Get their opinions and thoughts, perhaps ask for their suggestions.
And it’s generally a good idea to keep any swear words or profanities out of your branding. Or anything controversial, or on the fence.
Lastly, my piece of advice would be to check for any trademarks on names.
You don’t want to commit to a name only to find out it is trademarked further down the line.
Besides, you could even be liable to legal cases and serious fines should your brand every take off.
So, be sure to plugin in any prospective names into the United States Patent and Trademark Office database.
It takes less than a couple of minutes and could save yourself severe headaches if you do.
