Babysitting is the main source of income for many teenagers. You might want to expand your babysitting and start offering your services to more people than just your neighbors or family friends. A good name for your babysitting business can help in your expansion and make your services all the more memorable. Make sure the name is catchy and short. It makes it easier to remember.
Involve Your Name
You can use your first name in your business name. For example, "Jane's Babysitting" or "Jane's Little Steps." If you have a unique name, people will be able to connect you with the business right away. After a while, your clients will more than likely just shorten the business name to your first name, particularly when making recommendations to other potential customers.
What You Do
If there is something you emphasize when you babysit, emphasize it in your business name. If parents are looking for a certain kind of service, it will help lead them to you. If you emphasize creating healthy meals for the kids, try "Healthy Eats." If playing games and keeping the kids entertained is your primary focus, try "Fun Times."
Include the Kids
People call kids different names and you can include that in your business name. Using different names for children can help create a more relaxed feel and will give a sense of creativity to your business. Try using the word "tots" or you can use "little angels." "Kiddos" is another one that can be used. An example of how to use these words would be "Little Angel Sitting."
Here is where you can have some fun. If your name is Mary, try "Mary's Pop-in" as a play on Mary Poppins and it will also indicate you can pop right in for babysitting. Nursery rhymes are an indication that your business is for children. Try "Rock-A-Bye" or "Miss Muffett's." Be careful you do not get too creative. You do not want to confuse people. Stick to what is obvious and then play with it.
