How to Pick a YouTube Channel Name for Your Business

What's in a name anyways? Well, a lot things go into a name and it's meaning. Are you looking for a good name for your YouTube channel? Learn how to pick a strong name.

Discover the dos and don'ts and get inspired with these name categories. Click to "sort" the the tables and generate your own unique name. Here are some additional tips for choosing a name:

What's Your Purpose?

When selecting a name, decide which category your channel will fit into:

  • Common Name: A name established under your own identity—mostly for social purposes. These types of names might include your initials.
  • Business or Brand: Will you be using this name for business or for establishing a brand? Something like "Viral Vids 2000" might become outdated with a date attached to it. Pick something lasting and timeless.
  • Explanation: A name might be used to describe the purpose of the channel. For example, "Tame This Mane" (for hair).
  • Category: A category-inspired name might be one that describes a hobby or theme. For example, "80s Vintage Cars."

How Long Can a YouTube Name Be?

YouTube names can be up to 20 characters in length and are alphanumeric and case-sensitive.

Tips for Choosing a Good Name

  • Understand the purpose of the name: Make sure that the name uniquely hints at the purpose of your channel. Is it for your personal use, business, building out a brand, or perhaps for educational purposes? Consider your intent.
  • Create a list of traits: Before you settle on a name, consider making a list of traits that appeal to your channel to help guide your selection. Choose a related topic.
  • Keep it simple, not complex: Consider starting out simple first rather than just jumping to complex topics. Go for easy pronunciation, avoid cliches, and do not use vulgar words.
  • Use your initials: Set common keywords apart by introducing your unique initials.
  • Try a portmanteau or rhyme: A portmanteau is a blend of words (like "smog"—from "fog" and "smoke"). Or try a rhyme, for example, Mellow Yellow.
  • Match across social platforms: Consider using a YouTube channel name that can be adapted across social platforms; stick with your brand.
  • Check the domain availability: If you are building out a business or brand, you'll want to make sure that the domain name is available for your selected YouTube channel.

How Do You Name a YouTube Channel?

  1. Sign into YouTube (this is your channel).
  2. Click on the icon that indicates your account ("settings").
  3. Select "edit" next your channel name.
  4. Input your chosen name and click "ok."
