Shop and business name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for shops, stores and other types of businesses, like taverns and garages.

There are names for all sorts of shops and businesses, both modern, old and fantasy-styled. The names have been separated into 3 categories, though only the first 2 are completely randomly generated.
The first 4 names are names which start with a verb or adjective and end in a noun. Like 'The Black Anvil' or 'The Golden Apple', there are over 52000 different combinations possible, so there are bound to be a few odd and funny combinations. I personally quite like 'The Fluffy Spoon', but there are plenty more funny, odd and sometimes unusable names.

These first 4 names are usually quite obvious in terms of what kind of store is behind it. 'The Black Anvil' is most likely a smithy and 'The Golden Apple' could be a tavern or a fruit store.
However, the second group of 4 names has a type of store added to the end, so you'll get names like 'The Cuddly Puppy Pet Store' and 'The Ancient Adventure Travel Agent'.

Just like the first 4 names, these other 4 names will also generate plenty of odd combinations, even more so than the first 4. Because while 'The Cuddly Puppy Pet Store' makes sense, 'The Cuddly Puppy Butcher' has a whole different meaning.

The last 2 names are pun names. Names like 'Ali Barber' and 'Lettuce Inn' will be generated. Do note that despite having thought of about 2 dozen 'original' pun names (next to the 70 or so names I found elsewhere), consider all names to be in use somewhere in the world.

Of course, this doesn't matter too much, but if you want to use these names for your own real business, make sure you check if they're available in your area.
