Everyone needs to water to live. Tap water is usually safe enough to drink and widely available in the United States, but the use of a water filter or purifiers has become a necessity for many consumers. Part of the catalyst for growth is for health benefits of clean water, but improved taste is important part too. If you live in an area with high-mineral water for example, filtration can improve the appearance and smell of water.

According to reports, 85% of Americans receive their drinking water from the public water systems with only around 15% buying water from private companies. And with modern tap water containing fluorides and other chemicals to improve water quality, the need for filter and purification systems is higher now than ever.

With the desire to have cleaner and purer water, sales of water purifiers are rising exponentially with the average American using around 100 gallons of water each day and staying at home more than we are used to.

Starting your own water purifier brand means entering a market with rising tides, but entrenched competition too. There are literally thousands of water purification brands and products on the market today. So here is our take on the best in brand names for water purification to kick off the ideation process.

How to Name Your Water Filtration Business

Didn’t find the right fit from the suggestions above? No worries. We’ve compiled a list of proven ways to develop a unique brand name across any industry. Try these proven approaches to come up a distant brand name for your startup.

Mythology: One creative way to come up with a name that hasn’t been claimed is to look to Greek mythology. Poseidon is the god of the sea (and more generally water) and could be logical choice to pair with your filtration system. I happen to think Poseidon Purification has a nice ring to it. Here’s a list of Greek gods and goddesses to get you started with this approach.

Creative Synonyms: Synonyms are words that have a similar meaning to another word. Using a synonym discovery tool like PowerThesaurus.org is an efficient way to identify words you wouldn’t have otherwise considered.

This tool is as easy to use as a search engine. Enter the word you want to find synonyms for and viola, you’ve instantly got a list you can use. I tried the word “purification” and got these results back:

  • cleansing
  • purge
  • refinement
  • cleaning
  • lustration
  • scrubbing
  • decontamination

Not all the suggestions provided will be appropriate for your business, but you should get some results worth adding to a consideration list. Water scrubber is one brand name that came to mind for me based on the tool results.

Historical names: Finding a brand name that isn’t already claimed by someone else can be challenging. But sometimes going back far enough in history is the solution. Some names went out of favor decades or centuries ago, but could be brought back into the vernacular by you. The website BehindtheName.com offers a variety of ancient name suggestions that could serve as the inspiration for your brand.
