soap names, creative

Creative soap names could be just as hard as coming up with a soap business name. Although changing a soap name is way easier. And yes, names do make a big difference. For instance, is your soap ‘for something’ or ‘against something’ or ‘for someone specific’?

Seriously? apparently it smells like banana

For instance, I had a natural bug repellent bar entitled Entomophobia (fear of insects), and another soap maker from out of town came in, looked around, and introduced himself. He said that he made a bug repellent soap too, and called it Mountain Man. Now think of both of these names, Entomophobia and Mountain Man. Entomophobia sounds like science, and creates curiosity, all by using a name that suggests someone that does not like bugs biting them. The second name, Mountain Man conjures up an image of the dirty smelly man that just came into town from living in the mountains. Which sounds more appealing to you?

Perhaps I’m old fashioned, or maybe I’m just not rude and don’t want to read any of this out to my kids. Crass is not a selling feature, quality is.

My unscented, all natural soap, had a few different names. This is one soap that people say that they want with no scent, yet over and over, it was this bar that never sold very well. This is probably why of the unscented bars that other soap makers have made did have a hint of scent, being lavender and chamomile.

My creative soap names:

Below are lists of soap bar names that I had, or tried, for specific bars over the years, AND soap names and their scents where I stuck with the first name because it worked. Also, soap bar names that are exact, such as Lemongrass, sell better than if you try to come up with something unrelated or semi-related, like Morning Fresh or Citrus Moon:
