I’m making a WordPress theme, and am struggling on finding a catchy name that’s not already used by some other theme.
I’m debating whether or not to use it anyway.
Obviously some names are off limits like Genesis, Thesis, Avada, Divi, Hybrid, Kubrick, just to name a few.*
But what about some random ThemeForest theme that’s not particularly popular, for example?**
The name would be a generic, English word. Not something made up like Avada or Divi.
What are your thoughts on using a theme name that has already been “taken” assuming it doesn’t have a lot of name recognition already like the examples above?
And what are your thoughts on theme or product naming in general? Do you use a pattern or naming scheme? Go with a generic English word? Or make up your own?
*Please don’t get upset if I didn’t list your favorite theme, it’s beside the point.
**This theme wouldn’t be for sale on ThemeForest so there wouldn’t be any naming conflict on that specific marketplace.
