Project Name Generator

This project name generator works great for naming an internal project, an M&A project, an IPO, or an unnamed start-up. There are two types of names: the first is the word project followed by a code name, and the second is a random combination of two words.

How to Choose a Project Name

To begin naming your project, decide if you want to choose a name related to what you’re working on or something random.

In most cases, you may want something completely unrelated until you publicize a name. In this case, you just need something memorable so everyone working on the project knows what you’re talking about.

Next, try running the project name generator to find names that you think are catchy, fun, or inspirational for your team. Keep in mind you’ll be using this name for the duration of your project, so make sure it’s something you won’t hate saying after a week or two.
