How to come up with a nickname

A nickname is a second name you may need for computer games and social networks. Bloggers, writers, and musicians may also need a nickname. We can help you choose the right nickname!

  • The easiest way is to base your nickname on your real first and last names. Abbreviate them, come up with a wordplay, think of a famous character with a similar name.
  • For what purpose are you creating your account? If you're looking for a name for your channel or blog, associate the name with your content. It could be video games, cooking, travel, work.
  • Choose a simple but original nickname that is easy to read and remember, don't get carried away with embellishments.
  • Check the length of the nickname and the number of words it contains. Names with different lengths are suitable for different purposes.
  • Don't chase after fashion: choose a nickname that won't lose its relevance in a few years.
  • Write your nickname in Latin characters or in your own local alphabet, depending on who you are going to communicate with – English-speaking users, your compatriots, or foreigners.
