Help name a new analytics firm

Post by ashagru » Sun Feb 10, 2019 2:31 pm

Hello: I am seeking your input on naming a small (1-5 person) analytics firm that I am planning to start this year. Our firm will provide analytics and technology support to pharmaceutical firms.

I have several names in my mind and would love to get the group's input if you like any of these or suggest a new one. My thoughts are:

1. DNAnalytics: A DNA has the code to life. If every DNA molecule in the human body was unwrapped, it would stretch to Pluto and back. My firm will do analytics work to support pharmaceutical drugs which treat diseases at a cellular level

2. FutureFit or NextGen group: To indicate that my firm will get a client ready for future/next generation work

3. Cresco: Latin to grow. Again, helping clients to grow

4. Novus: Latin for new. My firm will bring new thoughts/suggestions to clients

5. Something around "coaching": Don't have a word in mind, but would like to convey the idea that my firm will coach clients

Open to other thoughts. Thank you in advance for your suggestions.

I like the DNA one, however the way it is spelled (or announced), if you are going to emphasize the DNA part you will need to add another (a) for the word analytics.

I like "Nextgen Tech" or something like that. In the end the name really doesn't matter. Your reputation with the hiring folks in the industry and the price you charge is going to determine success or not.

Good luck.

Have you done a Google search and trademark search on any of your proposed names? Google search results show some of these names/domains in use already.

Hmmm, I wouldn't use Theralytical because it is too close to Theralytics and Theranos.

Cresco is way too close to Crisco. Wouldn't use "Anal" either...

You might want to use US Patent office trademark search (TESS): http://tmsearch.uspto.gov/ to confirm availability...

Other ideas (do I get tee-shirt if selected?? ... or better yet options??) ...
1. Pharmetrix (measures for pharma, far/phar play on words)
2. Numerus (Latin for numbers)
3. Enodatio (Latin for analysis, elucidation, explanation, unknotting)
... I could go on...

Be careful of name clash with other potentially close-to-industry or confusing outfits, e.g.:
1. NextGen exists already as a healthcare company.
2. Cresco Labs exists as a cannabis growing outfit.
3. Novus appears to be an existing analytics company.
...these via Google not via personal knowledge!

Good fortune!
Bruce

Thanks all for the wonderful replies. This is more interesting that I thought. Bruce had some great ideas, but many are taken.

I am leaning towards NumVita -- using analytical solutions to improve life. Play on latin for numbers (numerus) and life (vita). Close to a firm called DaVita that I have consulted for. Also, available on google as many have rightly suggested.

What do you think?

My wife and I actually went through this same name search a few years ago. The name we came up with that we liked the most was Analytigo. Good luck on your search..

Or in a somewhat similar vein:

Maybe something with "Strand" in it. Data Strand. Strand Scan. Strandology. Strandologics. Strand Insight. Strandalytics. Strand Metrics.

Others: Data Coil. PharmaCel Metrics. PharmaCel Analytics. Data Cell Service. Pharma Cell Service.

I would include your name as part of the company name. That’s how you build a legacy.

For some late night fun ... consider:

Nuclytics
Nucl (nucleus ... the central and most important part of an object, movement, or group, forming the basis for its activity and growth.),
Nu also implies "new" ...
(Ana)lytics...

Nuclytics does not appear trademarked in US per TESS search
nuclytics.com is available now for a mere 99 cents on GoDaddy!*
*Full disclosure: I do not get a commission from GoDaddy :(

Your new stationery:
Nuclytics

You can thank me after your first billion! :happy

Cheers,
Bruce

Theralytica or Theralytic. Theralytics is taken, some sort of billing system.

Really impressed with the responses here. Similar to naming a child in some aspects -- you want the kid to have a unique...ish name, but want people to be able to pronounce it.

You want your kid to have an identity (a.k.a. available website, etc.)

Thank you all! I will start the journey soon. If all goes well, will report back to the group on how my "kid" is doing!

I'd suggest you consider availability of internet name availability as you consider company names.

If your focus is on pharma, it would help to put/have some connection to "pharma".. as long as you don't plan to serve other industries. There are several analytics/technology firms and having a pharma name will help you stand out somewhat (only somewhat because there are several of those as well). Good luck in your venture

I like PharmAlytics. Seems like a cool portmanteau of "pharmaceuticals" and "analytics."

If you by any chance use Dell computers to do your analysis then you could name the company,

I like Pharmalytics too - apparently so does the present trademark holder "Pharmametrics, Inc." ... who uses it for what sounds like a purpose possibly somewhat too similar to the OP's needs, to wit: "IC 009. US 021 023 026 036 038.

Hi: I am bringing this back.

I have landed on 2 names:

1. EKAM consulting

2. ALINA Analytics

Does the group prefer #1 or #2? Would love your input.

I said the name EKAM outloud..didn't like the way it sound. Alina at least flows when you say it.
Does EKAM stand for anything?

I have an almost identical business. I would recommend including the terms Analytics, Data, or something similar in the biz name. Although many data / statistical / analytics firms have names without these terms, I think they help to differentiate your services esp. when you're first starting out. I vote #2.
