Using your name
Using your name is my suggested approach, it’s what I highly, highly, highly, recommend. I recommend this because it is going to be the path of least resistance to getting started. It will also grow with you no matter how your business transforms and grows later on.
Sometimes people object to using their name because it’s too common or hard to spell or pronounce. If that’s the case, then most likely people won’t be typing your name in when you are starting, they will be clicking from a portfolio.
If you have a super common name, and the name is already taken. Then you can always add a “hello” at the beginning or “the” as in “TheMicalaQuinn”.
Choosing a creative name
If you want to go the creative route, I suggest picking something meaningful to you. Also, something that would be meaningful to your ideal client. But as you go about this, pick something that will still grow with you.
Also, make sure you do thorough research to make sure it’s not already in use. To do this, search the internet, social media, and the trademark database.
Using a mix: your name + creative
If you choose something that is a blend of both your name and something creative. That may be something like your name + another word that describes your business. A few examples could be “Quinn Creative”, “Quinn Collective”, or “Quinn Social”.
Pro-tip: do not start making up words that are hard to pronounce, and that nobody knows what they are. Clients won’t be able to remember it and will have a hard time pronouncing it when they refer you!
