Username Ideas: Creative and Cool Usernames

Updated on April 29, 2016

Need a Good Username?

It's important to choose a good username for websites. 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.

This article will provide you with ideas for username, including funny username ideas, and at the end you'll hopefully have a username for any site under the sun. Have fun!


Tips: How to Slightly Alter or 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. Sounds pirate-y, eh?

Add "decorative" letters

Examples:
xoxo_Karrie_xoxo
Oo_Eddie_oO

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

Words to add at the start:
uber
theonly
miss
mr
ms
citrus

Words to add at the end:
inabox
eatingcake
ishot

Cute Username Ideas and Sweet Username Ideas

If you're after cute names for your username, there many words that can be used, including in combination with your first name. However, keep in mind that you'll likely outgrow this username.

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.

 
 
 
angel
bubbles
shimmer
angelic
bubbly
glimmer
baby
pink
little
butterfly
sparkly
doll
sweet
sparkles
dolly
sweetie
sprinkles
lolly
princess
fairy
honey
snowflake
pretty
sugar
cherub
lovely
blossom

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.

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

Movie and TV Show-Themed Username Ideas

 
 
 
Swarley
yabba dabba doo!
respectmyauthori-tah
bazinga!
aaay
 
ay caramba!
Newman!
 
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

      Oh I think sugarbabyhoneydollKristy would please Van Halen.

      and your own take: Honorifics before your name like TheHonorable JudgeKristy, HerimperialmajestyKristy, HMSKristy, DameKristy, DuchessofAdelaideKristy....and of course there is the fashion fads, you could be HelloKristy with your own adorable stuffed Koala. =: )

      I think "failsatrespondingtocommentsinatimelymanner" is probably a pretty appropriate username for me too.

      Honorifics? Great idea. I especially like HMSKristy! I've always wanted a boat named after me... I guess I could settle for being named after a boat instead.

      Thanks for commenting, Winsome!

      It is quite difficult to come up with a creative username! Your suggestions are great for getting the creative juices flowing. How fun is hobbledehoy?! Going with some honorific spin on it - HMSHobbledehoy lol! Spin on occupations can be fun, too! One of mine that's a remnant from a past life is webdevgal. Thanks for an inspiring hub!
