From cute to clever – everything you need to know about naming your bakery.

Just looking for a list of bakery names? Head over to this page!


Opening up a new bakery can be quite challenging.

You first have to figure out the obvious which is what kind of baked goods you want to specialize. You then have to identify an ideal market for such a plan, pick out an appropriate location that’s equipped to handle a bakery business, come up with a good marketing strategy, meet all the necessary requirements for you to be able to actually run a business (aka the legaleze) – so on and so forth.

Every single detail needs to be carefully thought of so that your bakery becomes the new talk of the town (otherwise known as the TOTT).

There is one thing, however, that would-be baker-extraordinaire fails to give proper attention to, and that is naming their new bakery.

A sensible name for your bakery can make all the difference in the world.

It can catch people’s attention, make them understand what you’re selling and lure them into trying out your delectable treats.

So how do even start the process of brainstorming names for your business?

You’ve come to the right place.

Naming Guide

Let’s get the obvious out the way first. While it’s fun to come up with a cute name for your bakery, make sure it’s clear who you are and what you do – use the word bakery in your name!

I’ve seen so many people name their business something cutesy like “Carlo’s.”

Not even the Cake Boss himself would just use the name Carlo’s. It seems so obvious and I hate to even have to include this here in this guide, but I feel obligated.
