The term “hillbilly,” which refers to a simple, unsophisticated person residing in the countryside is often seen as informal and even derogatory in some cases. But more often than not, people are starting to embrace the appeal of country living. The slower pace of life, beauty of rural areas, and the serenity of the countryside are drawing people out of the city and into quiet towns and mountain villages.

I can speak from experience about this example. I used to live in Southern California. My wife’s family decided to move to Idaho for this simple life and quickly transformed from carrying around Louie Vuitton to wearing Carhartt branded caps and t-shirts. I never thought I’d see the day.

If you want to start a restaurant, food brand, or honky-tonk with a distinct country-feel, you can use any of these hillbilly name ideas that fit the bill. Let’s take a look at the options.

Hillbilly, redneck, and southern names is a distinct branding strategy for all sorts of businesses. Use any of the ideas above, and bring the warmth of the countryside to your company.

If you’re looking to come up with something on your own one of the best strategies is to think about the imagery of country folk. I like to think about references from country songs like dirts roads, good dogs, old pickup trucks, chicken fry, open skies, drinking beer, and even heartbreak. Imagery like this is perfect for this type of businesses.
