How to Come Up With Right Blog Name?

Before we dive into the world of blogging, it’s worth taking a moment to think about just what your blog name is going to represent.

  • What is your blog going to be about?
  • Your targeted audience.
  • What is the tone/voice of your blog going be like?
  • Will you be building your brand name on your blog?
    Here are the things you need to consider when you find your blogs name.


    Use thesaurus


    Thesaurus can be a goldmine of inspiration, especially if you want to convey something in a slightly different way.

    A quick scan for the word “tricks” bring up suggestions such as, conspiracy, deception, device, gimmick, hoax, ambush, artifice, blind, perjury – all of which sound much more exciting.


    Study your competitors’ blog title


    This may sound like a boring job but doing proper research on the kind of blog you’ll be competing against, will give you an idea for a right blog name that will work for your own blog.


    Word Generators


    Utilize tools for generating good words combinations. Many free tools allow you set your own limits on kind of words you want to generate. Then you just need to press “Hit” and the tool will generate thousands of suggestions. Many tools tell you whether the .com of that name has been registered by anyone.


    Get inspired by books


    Why not take some advice from world’s greatest authors and use your favorite book as inspiration.

    With millions of books out there, all full to the brim with wonderful words, it won’t take you long to find something that inspires and delights, as well as be a potential contender for your new blog.


    Consider changing a language


    If you’re looking to stand out in a saturated market, choosing an abstract word or phrase in a language other than English can be a great way to draw attention to yourself. A simple online translator such as Google Translate will get you off to a good start.

    Try choosing something short with fewer syllables. This will help to keep your blog name easy to remember and pronounce!


    Play with words


    What happens if you’ve already come up with the perfect blog name, but it’s already registered elsewhere on the net? I’m sure we’ve all been there at some point and it’s incredibly frustrating, to say the least, but don’t write off your favorite name just yet. There are tools available to help you keep your original ideas alive, by providing suggestions.


    Abbreviations are great option


    Take a moment to think about the companies and brands you’re aware of and how many of them have an abbreviated name. Abbreviations are beneficial because they keep things short and sweet, without removing your brand and identity.
