How to Come Up With a Good Instagram Name

Looking for an instagram handle that will get you tons of followers? Look no further. Here's a list of 200+ original usernames—enjoy mixing and matching name ideas with the Instagram name generator. This article includes tips for picking a name that's original and attention-grabbing and sure to get you followers. We've included names for professionals/businesses, musicians, outdoorsy-adventurous types, activists, foodies, personal profiles, etc. Here are some pointers:

  • Who's your audience? Is your IG only for family and friends (if so, consider a nickname)? Is it for professional use—journalism, music, activism, etc. (consider a serious name).
  • What's the purpose of your IG account? In other words, what is the theme of your instagram account? Are you a foodie? Fashionista? World traveler? Pick a name that reflects this.
  • Do your research: Before confirming your name selection, make sure something similar is not taken. Let's face it—that would be a bummer.
  • Make sure it can't be misread: Say the name outloud and see if people in your circle get its meaning. If it can be misread, that may lead to problems.
  • Pick something with a good lifespan: You want a name that will last, not one that you will outgrow. So, make it special and give it a lot of thought.

Happy searching!

I think it is your niche more than mine. I have a backlog of other material to write about. You go ahead if you want.

I was going to suggest you write it but maybe no interest? Up to you! I'd love to as well. (:

Layne Holmes (author) from Bend, Oregon on May 12, 2019:

Thanks Liz—this was a harder one to come up with since a lot of the names can be abstract. I hope there's something for everyone!

Liz Westwood from UK on May 12, 2019:

This is an interesting compilation. I shall refer to it if I feel the need to set up an imstagram account.
