20 Brand Names That Could Also Work as Baby Names

When brainstorming baby names, the best advice I can offer is to leave no stone unturned! Sometimes the best inspiration can come from the least expected places… even brand names.

While the idea of giving your little one a name that is shared with a brand might sound a bit strange at first, you just may find a hidden gem in the mix! Here are 20 you could consider.

1. Levi

Levi, the name synonymous with classic denim, also happens to make a great name for a little boy. Classically cool and just unusual enough to keep it interesting.

2. Ford

While Ford may conjure up images of rugged trucks, this all-American brand could also make the perfect name for a little man!

3. Zara

I love this name for a little girl! Although some may be reminded of the retail clothing chain, it still doesn’t feel overly “brand-y” and it’s got just the right amount of exotic flair.

4. Harley

If you happen to be a biker, or simply a lover of Harley Davidson motorcycles, perhaps this is the right moniker for your little one. Even if bikes aren’t your thing, this is a really adorable name that could work for a boy or a girl.

5. Chase

While Chase may be the name emblazoned across your bank card, it is also a word and an already known boy’s name — so it may be a safer choice for those who want a name that doesn’t scream “brand.”

6. Apple

While Apple does bring to mind a plethora of tech products (I’m looking at you beloved iPhone), this name obviously has its roots in nature. It’s a sweet and quirky option for a little girl.

7. Gibson

For the musician parents-to-be, maybe Gibson (as in Gibson guitars) might be the right choice for your little one. I love this name for a boy and have never actually heard of anyone with the name, so it would likely be a truly unique option.

8. Macy

Macy’s may be a long-time department store shopping favorite, but remove the “s” and you’ve got a cute name choice for a baby girl. I can just picture a little Macy running around… sweet, but a spitfire!

9. Chanel

Famed clothier Chanel is a brand that is forever tied to luxury and elegance. If you are looking for a girl’s name with just the right touch of class, then Chanel just might be the one for you.

10. Disney


If you happen to be a lover of all things Disney (and if you’re reading this here at Disney Baby, it’s probably safe to assume that you are), then perhaps it wouldn’t be so far-fetched to take that love one step further and give your little one the name Disney. It would surely make for a fun name story later in life!

11. Benz

I love, love, LOVE the name Benz. While it is part of the Mercedes brand, it also sounds a lot like the more common name Ben, so Benz feels like a fresh take.

12. Emerson

Who knew that the name of an electronics manufacturer would make such an adorable baby name? A great choice for a boy or a girl.

13. Wrigley

Wrigley is a brand that likely elicits fond memories of childhood chewing gum bubble blowing contests. It’s fun and quirky and perhaps a contender for a soon-to-be-arriving little boy.

14. Evian

Naming your baby after bottled water? Well, when it sounds this pretty, why not? Evian has quite an ethereal ring to it and is lovely for a baby girl.

15. Tyson

If you end up choosing this name for your little one, perhaps they will be excited when they learn one day that they just so happen to share their name with a brand of chicken. I mean, what kid doesn’t love chicken nuggets?

16. Canon

Once your little one arrives you may be taking lots of photos with a camera (possibly a Canon brand), so why not give them a photography-inspired name? This name sounds strong and fresh, interesting without trying too hard.

17. Delta

I wonder if Delta airlines would offer your little one frequent flier miles if they found out they were your little one’s namesake? Such a cute name for a little girl, with a great Southern feel.

18. Bell

The name Bell (shared with Bell Telephone Company) is such a lovely breath of fresh air. A pretty and unique name for a little girl.

19. Calvin

Borrowing the name Calvin (or Klein for that matter!) from clothing designer Calvin Klein could be a nice name option for your little man. It’s got a perfectly classic and sophisticated vibe to it.

20. Lincoln

Who knew car brands could be such an inspiring place to search for baby names? Lincoln is no different. In addition to being a car brand, it also has historical roots from 16th President Abraham Lincoln. While this name leans toward being a “boy’s name,” I think it would make a really fun and less expected choice for a little girl.
