Coming up with good restaurant name ideas depends on the type of restaurant you’re opening. What type of food will you serve? Is it fast food? Is it organic? Homemade?

Once you have a clear business strategy, brainstorm words that come to mind when you think about your restaurant.

You don’t have to be literal when you name your restaurant. When brainstorming names, consider the following methods:

  • Use alliteration, ie. "Dunkin’ Donuts"
  • Try acronyms, ie. "KFC"
  • Turn it into a pun, ie. "Cheesy Does It"

Finding good restaurant names can be a challenge. But, with Shopify’s name generator tool, you can find inspiration in minutes.

In general, good restaurant names are:

  • Creative: don’t be afraid to think outside the box
  • Universal: ensure your brand name makes sense across all languages
  • Easy to pronounce: make sure your brand name is easy to find and remember

Some funny already-taken restaurant names include:

  • The Big Legrowlksi
  • Catcher in the Rye
  • Kale Me Crazy
  • Party Fowl
  • Basic Kneads Pizza
