Cool Username Ideas

Choosing a good username for websites and social media platforms 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 challenging—it can seem like all the good ones are taken, especially on big social media networks like Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram, where there are literally hundreds of millions (or even billions) of users.

You'll have to get a little creative to figure out a cool and unique username for these sites. Each site or app requires a slightly different approach to creating a username and requirements for the type of letter and character limits; I'll touch on that later.

This article will provide you with ideas for usernames, including cute, funny, and interesting username ideas, as well as inspiration for tweaking a name that's already taken with numbers, letters, or extra words.

Hopefully, by the end of this article, you'll be able to come up with a username for any site under the sun!

Cute Usernames

If you're looking for a cute username, there are many sweet and adorable words you can use, 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 combining a few words. For example:

  • sweet_kristy
  • kristy_honey
  • bubbly_snowflake
  • angelic.princess.kristy
  • fairy.princess.kristy
  • baby_kristy_butterfly

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

Use a Phobia as a Username

Phobias aren't fun to have—unless they're part of your username! There's plenty out there, including some really obscure ones. They sound awesome and can be a unique username idea.

You can choose a phobia because you like its meaning or the way it sounds. Check out 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

glossophobia

radiophobia

triskaidekaphobia

Your Name (or Anything Else) Backward as a Username

Why not see what your name looks like backward? Chances are, it looks really cool, and you never even knew. You can use your name backward if you want 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.

Try to pick a unique username without a lot of numbers or other characters for your Twitch account.

Twitch Username Ideas

Twitch is a streaming platform that's mainly used to stream people playing video games. It is simple to set up an account and 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 an easily searchable name. Your username will need to be 4–25 characters in length. Usernames must only contain alphanumeric characters.

You can also change your Twitch username, but keep in mind you can only do this once every 60 days.

Pick a username that describes your personality and the types of photos you will be sharing on Instagram.

Instagram Username Ideas

Instagram is the go-to app for sharing photos, and you have some options for your username. You can 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.

Facebook, which owns Instagram, has streamlined the process for connecting accounts on the two social media sites—you can browse Facebook friends to add on Instagram and even select an option to use the same profile picture on both sites. However, you can still change your Instagram username whenever you'd like.

Keep in mind your username needs to be 4–30 characters and must contain letters, periods, numbers, underscores, or abbreviations—no special characters allowed. You can change your username at any time and as often as you want, but switching your username often might be confusing for your followers.

As with Twitch, you will need to create a username that encapsulates your profile and the 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 second (or third) Instagram profiles 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 perhaps they simply want to express themselves in ways that are not appropriate for their regular profile.

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.

Snapchat usernames must be 3–15 characters and can contain letters, numbers, and either a period, underscore, or hyphen. It is not possible to change your Snapchat username once you have set up your account.

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.

Hollywood-Inspired Usernames

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

If you're a fan of a TV show or movie, why not let everybody know with your username? You could also include a reference to the TV show, such as a catchphrase, in-joke, or great line.

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 select from the wide variety of settings available and let the generator do the rest—it's so simple!

Building an Online Brand

If you are trying to build a brand for yourself online, such as through a blog or website, you might want to consider having the same (or similar) usernames across all of your social media platforms. A unique and catchy username will help you build, market, and create a buzz around your online brand.

Clever Ways to Modify Your Username (if Your Desired Username Is Taken)

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

Add Numbers

Examples:

  • prozack1986
  • czarcasm2

So as to not forget the username, meaningful numbers are best, such as your year of birth, postcode, or favorite 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, or Dashes

Change the Spelling

hilairious

intelllligent

braynee

vivashus

happee

dyzzie

tuff

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.

Ways to Misspell Your Username

Examples:

  • 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
