Words That Sound Cool

Author:

I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.

Cool Words (You Know You Need Them)

When you use words that sound cool to come up with titles or business names, it makes your new creation very recognizable and relatable to everyone. The best way to put this theory to work is to choose a word (or words) that fit with your goals.

I've tried my best to choose words that are not too long or too complicated to say. I wanted words that people want to say, that people like to hear and that people know the meaning of. Most people will not need a definition for the words found below. This article is all about giving you a list of words that you can use to create something great.

While some longer and more complicated words do sound cool when you say them, they are not that well known or used that often. Shorter, simpler words that sound good when you say them is the way to go when creating a short phrase, title or name. I hope that you find this article useful. Thanks for giving it a chance.

Tips and Tricks When Using Word Combinations To Come Up With Titles or Business Names

  • Make a list of words that relates to whatever your interested in (group, business name, song title, etc), then go over this list to see which words fit well together or at least pique your interest. Do they roll off your tongue naturally; be sure to say them out loud.
  • The more words you use, no matter how great they sound or how easy they are to remember, the harder it will be for your target audience to relate to. The length will depend on your goal and the people who will be enjoying your product. Length also effects branding and ease of advertising.
  • If trying to be purposely sarcastic or ironic, you better make sure your target market realizes this or people may jump to the wrong conclusions.
