So you’ve decided you want to open up an Etsy store, but you can’t decide on the shop name. Don’t worry! This happens more often than you might think.

Behind every good Etsy shop name is an entrepreneur who was in the exact same position that you’re in right now.

In this article, we’ll explore the best strategies for naming your Etsy store and by the end, you’ll be ready to pick a name and open your online business.

How to Pick Your Etsy Shop Name

Before we get into our list of name ideas, here are some rules to follow when picking your Etsy shop name:

  1. Choose a name under 20 characters
  2. Pick something easy for the customer to remember
  3. Check to see if what you want is already taken or close to it
  4. Think if you are building a brand beyond Etsy
  5. Don’t use another company’s trademark in the name
  6. Know you can change your Etsy Store name later

We highly recommend just picking something to get the shop open and rebranding later if you choose. We’ll get into how to change the Etsy shop name later in this post.

The Best Etsy Shop Names

So is there a magic formula for coming up with the best Etsy Shop name?

We pulled sales data from a keyword research tool called eRank that we use and here were the Etsy stores with the highest number of sales yesterday:

  1. Beadboat1
  2. CaitlynMinimalist
  3. HeatherRobertsArt
  4. KJewelryMetal
  5. Ilovelotus
  6. Spoonflower
  7. ModParty
  8. HappyKawaiiSupplies
  9. LuckyHeartDesignsCo
  10. SartorMasks

As you can see, even though all of these Etsy sellers had thousands of sales yesterday, there isn’t much of a “theme” to their store names.

There isn’t some magic Etsy SEO formula for the perfect shop name, it’s all about the products you sell. I’m sure if we pulled names from the bottom of the sales list, we’d see some great Etsy shop names with very few sales as well!

The best Etsy store name is the one that gets you over the hurdle of opening your online business.

How to Change Your Etsy Shop Name

The most important thing to know is that you can easily change your Etsy shop name at any time. It’s a relatively simple process.

So if after reading this far, you have some decent store name ideas, just run with one of them.

You can always rebrand and change your store name later on.

In order to change your Etsy shop name, you can go to Settings > Info & Appearance > Click change next to Shop name.

No one can use your old shop name even if you choose to change it so don’t worry about anyone taking your old brand.

Etsy allows you to change your shop name up to 5 times, but after that, you need to contact the Etsy support team and have them help you change it manually.

Personally, we recommend changing the name a maximum of 2-3 times if you need to change it. Julie has never changed her Etsy shop name and it hasn’t been a problem for her yet.

Of course, a rebrand could always be something she pursues down the road, and she loves that Etsy provides that option should she need it.

How to Know if Your Etsy Store Name is Trademarked

The Etsy Seller Handbook also has some tips on how to check if your shop name is trademarked. This means that another company has filed for rights to use this name and you may be infringing upon their rights if you choose to use it as well.

They recommend using the trademark search tool in the US and searching your local trademark authority if located outside of the US.

Etsy Shop Name Trademark Search

Here are the search results in the US Trademark database for “Beautiful Designs”.

An example of something that would be a definite “no-no” to use in your Etsy shop name would be anything Disney-related or Harry Potter-related.

Well-known brands and companies regularly facilitate the removal of shops and products that infringe upon their trademarks.

This is not something to worry about if you used our ideas above since the name you will pick will hopefully be so unique to you that it is not used anywhere else.

Checking Etsy Shop Name Availability

Beyond checking for trademarks, we recommend finding out if your shop name was used on social media accounts or if someone else has created a blog or website with the name.

It may not matter for copyright but it may be confusing for customers who try to look you up only to find another business with the same name.

There are truly so many different word combinations out there though that you most likely will be able to generate something completely unique.

However, if you’re dead set on a shop name and see that it’s already been taken online or on social media, don’t give up yet. Sometimes, you can purchase the domain name (or website name) and/or social media accounts from the previous seller if you message them.

Once you do start an Etsy shop, we recommend grabbing the related Instagram and other social media handles so you always know you have them if you choose to build out your marketing later. You may want to purchase your own website as well (although it’s certainly not necessary).
