Creative and Cool Usernames

Cool Username Ideas

Choosing a good username for websites is important. It's the first thing people will notice, so choose wisely to leave a good impression. Unfortunately, coming up with a cool username can be hard—it can seem like all the good ones are taken, especially on big social media sites like Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, where there are literally millions of users. You'll have to get a little creative to figure out a cool and unique username to use on these sites. Each site/app requires a slightly different approach when it comes to creating a username, a process that I will go over as well.

This article will provide you with ideas for usernames, including funny username ideas, and you'll hopefully be able to come up with a username for any site under the sun.

Protip

It is important to keep a list of all of your usernames and passwords in case you forget them or need to change them. I suggest keeping all of that information on a piece of paper in a secure spot where you can easily access it.

Cute Usernames

If you're after cute names for your username, there are many words that can be used, including in combination with your first name. However, keep in mind that you'll likely outgrow this username and that it may not be appropriate for every site/app.

Use these words below either by themselves with your own name, or combine a few of the words. For example:

  • SweetKristy
  • KristyHoney
  • BubblySnowflake
  • AngelicPrincessKristy
  • FairyPrincessKristy
  • BabyKristyButterfly

See below for other cute or sweet-themed words to use in your username.

Cute Username Ideas

 
 
 
angel
bubbles
shimmer
angelic
bubbly
glimmer
baby
pink

butterfly
sparkly
doll
sweet
sparkles
dolly
sweetie
sprinkles
lolly
princess
fairy
honey
snowflake
pretty
sugar
cherub
lovely
blossom

Snapchat Username Ideas

Snapchat is a social media app that lets you send videos and pictures to your friends, with the catch that they expire after a brief period. Depending on what you want to do you can use some variation of your name or nickname to come up with a username. You have control over who can add you as a friend, so you do not have to be super secretive about making up a username. Keep in mind that the username you want may be taken by someone else so you may have to alter the spelling of it slightly.

For example, even something like Doctor Kristy would work just fine on Snapchat, as your friends know who you are.

Twitch Username Ideas

Twitch is a streaming platform that is mainly used for the streaming of people playing video games. It is simple to set up an account and to start streaming your video game playthroughs to the world but choosing a good username is extremely important. Gamers are notoriously picky when it comes to names, so a username that has a bunch of numbers or other characters may not look good on this site. You are trying to build a certain brand identity on a site like Twitch, so you want a name that is easily searchable.

Cryptic Hatter

Blue Defender

Iron Merc
Steel Titan
Stealthed Defender
Blaze Assault
Venom Fate

Masked Titan
Frozen Gunner

Instagram Username Ideas

Instagram is now the go-to app when it comes to sharing photos, and you have some options for your username. You can just use your real name (if it is not taken) as many of your friends from other social media sites will want to add you on Instagram. Having another name can make it confusing for your followers. Much like in the Twitch example, you will need to make up a username that encapsulates your profile and what kind of photos you will be posting. If you're looking for a list of cool and cute username ideas you can use on Instagram, there are some great articles out there that can help you do that.

Finsta Username Ideas

Many people have a second (or third) Instagram profile known as a fake Instagram or finsta. The reason behind this is for the person to post photos that would not fit on their regular profile. This can be because they don't want their friends seeing certain pictures or they simply want to express themselves in ways that are not appropriate for their regular profile.

Username Generator

If you are struggling to come up with a username, an online username generator can be a great tool to use. I have found this one from Jimpix to be quite fun and useful. Just get all of the settings dialed into what you want and let the generator do the rest, it's so simple!

Use a Phobia as a Username

You can choose a phobia because you like its meaning or just like the way it sounds. View a huge list of phobias for more ideas. If it strikes your fancy, you could even make up a phobia name instead of using a scientific name. For example:

  • Facebookaphobia
  • Cheesecakeophobia
  • DMVphobia

Phobias as Usernames

 
 
 
Ecophobia
Hippophobia
Scolionophobia
Ergophobia
Musophobia
Zemmiphobia
Geliophobia
Tachophobia
Hadephobia
 
Radiophobia
 
Phobias aren't fun to have- except as part of your username! There's plenty out there, including some really obscure ones. They sound awesome, and can be a unique username idea.

Sometimes it is easier to make a username that borrows from a famous TV show. Doing so can make your username stand out and be memorable.

Movie and TV Show-Themed Username Ideas

 
 
 
Swarley
yabba dabba doo!
respectmyauthori-tah
bazinga!
aaay
thedudeabides
ay caramba!
Newman!
whitewalkers
If you're a fan of a television show or movie, why not let everybody know with your username? Or, you could just include a reference to the TV show, such as a catchphrase, in-joke or great line.

Your Name (or Anything Else) Backwards as a Username

Why not see what your name looks like backwards? Chances are, it looks really cool and you never even knew. You can use that as a username to have a personal username where the connection to you isn't immediately obvious. Unless your name is Eve.

You can also try this for words you like, or hobbies- do you like yoga? I bet the username Agoy is still available. The username "South Park" may not be available, but what about kraphtuos? Even stamp collecting almost sounds cool when it becomes Gnitcellocpmats.

Use the Dictionary to Help You Pick a Username

 
 
 
guffaw
hitherto
ligature
guidon
hoary
limner
guilloche
hobbledehoy
titmouse
holystone
hobgoblin
tittup
homeric
intagliated
tmesis
 
tormentil
 
If all else fails, just pull out a dictionary and flip to a random page. Look down until you find a word that sounds interesting. The above are just some cool examples! (Also, you may need to use one of the tricks at the beginning of this article to

How to Change Your Desired Username

If you've already got an awesome username idea, but it's taken, try altering it. For example:

Add numbers

eg:

  • ProZack1986
  • Czarcasm2

So as to not forget the username, meaningful numbers are best, such as your year of birth, post code or favourite number. Just don't forget that if you use your year of birth, most people will recognize it as a year, guess it's your birth year and thus know your age.

Add underscores, dots and dashes

eg:

  • Cookie_Monster
  • ob-LIV-ious
  • L.i.z.z.y
  • _John_

Change the spelling

eg:

  • moodie
  • intelllligent
  • happee
  • mischeivous

Note: Make sure to change the spelling of the word only slightly, so that its original meaning is still clear. You can also use this to be ironic, by spelling a word like "intelligent" wrong.

Ideas on how to misspell your username:

  • Instead of the letter "O", use a "0" (a zero)
  • Instead of a "C," use a "K."
  • If there is an "R" in your username add additional ones. For example: Marrrrlin

Add "decorative" letters

Examples:

  • xoxo_Karrie_xoxo
  • Oo_Eddie_oO

Add a word to the start or the end of your username

eg:

  • uber
  • miss
  • mr
  • ms
  • citrus

Words to add at the end:
eg:

  • inabox
  • eatingcake
  • ishot
