I know you have already read many blog posts about “How to name a blog” and everyone is saying the same thing – keep it simple, keep it short, the name should be unique etc.etc.

But you are still not able to figure out a good name for your blog! Am I right?

Because no one is telling you the actual process of coming up with a blog name, which is very important for someone who is starting his/her very first blog.

But now you don’t need to worry about your blog name, today In this post, I will tell you about my 2 step formula to come up with a good blog name.

How to name your blog

In fact, I am promising you that you will have a good name for your blog in the next 15 minutes.

Let’s dive right in…

PART #1

How critical is choosing the right blog name for its success?

Well, the reality is not that critical.

In the long term, the success of your blog mostly depends on the content you create, the feeling that you give your readers and the value you provide to them.

For Example:

  • A blog with a name that looks perfect such as “Fashion Beast” will go nowhere if the content of the blog is not that good.
  • And a blog with great content despite a strange name that at first does not make any sense or sound weird will still work well. ( Avocadu, Mevolv & Wired are few great examples of the successful blog with weird name )

Then Why You Should bother?

See, I do agree that your blog name is not that critical part of your blog where you should waste your whole week figuring out the perfect name. But that doesn’t mean you should pick any random name for your blog.

Whenever someone visits your blog, You will have only a few seconds to make an impression to your potential blog visitor. If your blog or business name doesn’t capture what you’re all about, then chances are that people will just click away.

On top of that, a good name is extremely important for proper branding, and not to forget 77% of marketers say that proper branding is critical to the growth of a blog in 2020. 

My Personal Story:

Only very few of my old readers know that this blog was previously known as “Bemakemoney”.

Yes, when I started this blog in 2018, I named it “Bemakemoney.” But After more than a year I realized that most people are having difficulties pronouncing and typing the right name of my blog. Plus the name of my blog was also not reflecting my actual vision with this blog.

Finally, at the starting of 2019, I took a strong decision and rebranded my blog to “NerdBlogging” from “Bemakemoney.”

(You’ll also agree that my current blog name is 10 times better than the old name and this name actually gives you an idea of my mission and vision with this blog)

This is why I don’t want you to make the same mistake of choosing a random name and later go through the re-branding process. Better spend some time and pick a blog name that you won’t regret later.

PART #2

Questions To Answer Before Brainstorming a name

Before we go into how to create a blog name, here are a few questions you need to ask yourself.

01. What Is Your Blog Going To Be About?

Before naming your blog, you must first define your blogging niche.

Your blogging niche is the topic, category or specific subject you are going to be covering on your website.

One of the best branding practice is to pick a brand name that is related to your niche.

A blog name that reflects the topic of your blog will help your visitor understand what your blog is all about and what kind of content they can expect.

For example, if you name your blog BikerBeast and write about fitness tips, your visitor will be confused and you will face a hard time building strong brand around your blog.

However, You can also choose a non-specific name for your blog or just use your personal name. That way you can be more flexible. Still, even in this case, it’s better to have some niche idea’s formulated before naming your blog.

02. Who Is Your Target Audience?

Now that you know what you are going to write about, you need to know who your target audience is.

Your target audience will define a lot about your blog, you want to pick a name that resonates with your audience.

The worst thing you can do at this stage is to pick a name that confuses your audience. Vice versa! You want a blog name that your target audience can relate to.

Compare these two tech blogs:

Mac Rumor covers news, tips and tricks specifically for Mac users.

MacRumors

Android Police cover news, tips and tutorials specifically for Android phone users.

Android Police

Both site makes very clear with their name who their target audience is.

03. What Tone And Voice Will You Be Using?

Two other importing things to pay attention to while figuring out how to name a blog are tone and voice. They will both depend on your blogging niche and target audience.

For example, if your target audience is young peoples, you can set a fun and playful voice to reflect your jovial personality.

On the other hand, if you are planning to create a lifestyle blog, you need to make sure the name of your blog is perosnal and inspiring.

04. Do You Want A Personal or Descriptive or Generic Blog name?

Though there are many types of brand name a business consider while naming process, but to make it simple for you I have categorised them in three common types:

#1. Personal Blog Names

Plenty of bloggers use their own name as their blog name. It works well especially if you want to make and grow your personal brand.

If you are a coach or consultant or you are looking to become a “household name” in your industry, then a personal blog name may suit you the best.

Examples of personal blog names:

Neil Patel named his blog “Neil patel” and created his personal brand. With his blog, he established himself as an expert in the online marketing industry.

Neil patel

Melyssa Griffin – Melyssa changes her blog name from “The Nectar Collective,” to simply, “Melyssa Griffin.” She teaches aspiring entrepreneurs how to start and grow their own business.

Melyssa Griffin

The downside of the Personal Blog name:

Personal blog name makes sense when you’re running a blog that is all about you. Otherwise, a brandable or Descriptive blog name may work better in the long term than using your personal name.

#2. Descriptive Blog Names

Descriptive blog names are those that immediately conveys the blog niche or topic.

They are intended to be search engine optimized and generally include the main keyword of blog.

The positive aspect of having a clear descriptive blog name is that they are apt for targeted traffic as the audience already knows what to expect from the blog.

Good examples of Descriptive blog names:

Tech Radar: The name clearly specifies that the blog must be publishing content related to Technology.

Tech radar blog

Social Media Examiner: The name clearly specifies that the blog must be publishing content related to Social Media.

Social media examinerblog

#3. Branded Blog Names

These types of blog names are generally fancier than the descriptive blog name.

One cannot depict anything about the blog topic from the name of the blog.

For example:

ShoutMeLoud.com – A blog that cover topic related to blogging and digital marketing. But a new person who has heard this name for the first time cannot depict anything about the content of this blog.

Shoutmeloud blog

So, Which type of blog name is best for you?

If you have already read some blog posts on “how to choose a blog name” then you may have noticed that most experts suggest choosing something brandable.

Yes, I also agree that creative & branded blog names are good, but this often leads beginners to choose some non-descriptive blog names.

That’s why I always recommend my readers to Just follow one rule: Be Descriptive!

Your blog visitor should instantly get an idea of what your blog is all about just from your blog name. It will definitely help you create a targeted audience base in a very short period of time.

PART #3

2-Steps Formula to come up with a Good Blog Name

Now, I’m going to walk you through a 2-step pain-free process that will help you come up with a blog name fast

For me, the perfect blog name is a combination of two words.

A niche relevant word + a Miscellaneous word.

The niche relevant word has to be something related to my niche. For example, If I am starting a photography blog then I may use “Lens” or “Pixel” words in my blog name.

And the second miscellaneous word will be something cool and catchy that blend well with my first word.

To practically demonstrate this formula, I am taking personal finance blog niche as an example.

So, let’s see how we will come up with some catch & creative names for a personal finance blog in the next few minutes.

Step 1 : Write down all the words associated with your blog niche

First thing first, before coming up with a blog name, you’ll need to finalize the niche you’re going to blog about.

If you are still not sure about what will be your blog niche and who will be your target audience then please read this article first – How To Choose A Blogging Niche For Your New Blog?

Once you have identified your blog niche, Open a spreadsheet, or take a copy pen and note down all the words that are most closely related to the topics you’ll now be blogging about.

At this point in time, you don’t need to think about whether the word will be suitable for a good blog name or not. Just write all the words that come up in your mind related to your niche.

Once you’ve thought of every possible word, head to Thesaurus.com, and enter your topic keyword to find out more words related to your topic.

Threasure for synonyms words

To demonstrate this practically, I prepared this list for my target niche “Personal finance”.

“Words related to Personal Finance”

  • Finance
  • Broke
  • Frugal

  • Money
  • Consumer
  • Dollar
  • wise
  • dime
  • bucks

Step 2 : Mix and match with the miscellaneous words

Now it’s time to find some miscellaneous words and then finally mix and match those words with our main words to get an unexpected yet memorable blog name.

So, let’s find out some good catchy words that blend well with our main keywords.

#1. Add an action verb in your main keyword

There are many action verbs that you may mix in your main keyword to come up with a good and unique blog name.

Here are some simple action verbs you can add in your blog name to give it some energy.

You can come up with a good name by having an authoritative word as a prefix or suffix to your main keyword.

Here are few Words that implies authority:

#6. Use Alliteration

Alliteration is a common writing technique in which two or more words begin with the same sound.

You often see it in newspaper or Magazine headline (Like Bustin Bieber, History in his hand, etc.)

They are known to grabs humans attention, evidenced by the fact that so many of today’s most famous brands make use of it.

Here are just a few examples…

  • Best Buy

  • Blackberry
  • Constant Contact

Not Just companies, have a look at these few catchy blog names:

  • The Millennial Money Man (Personal finance niche)
  • Cupcakes and Cashmere (Lifestyle niche)
  • Cats Who Code (Web Developer)
  • Pilates for the People (Exercise)
  • Making Sense of Cents (Personal Finance)

What do all these names have in common? They’re all excellent examples of alliteration.

Making sense of cents blog

#7. Make use of a good pun to name your blog

Again just like alliteration, Puns re also very common in the blogging world as it helps forming a memorable blog name.

The pun, also called paronomasia makes use of words that have more than one meaning or words that sound similar but have different meanings, to give humorous effect. 

From the blog name perspective, make use of well-known phrases and incorporate it with your blog niche related words (brainstormed in step 1)

Here are few good examples of punny blog names that do a great job of setting a light tone, and communicating the topics of blogs:

  • Fit-Bottomed Girls (Health & Fitness)
  • Economies of Kale (Living on a Budget)
  • All Groan Up (Career Advice)
  • Gin n Sardonic (Lifestyle)
  • Second Star on the Wright (Lifestyle)
  • Budget Bytes (Living on a Budget and Recipes)

  • My Darling Lemon Thyme (Recipes)
  • Planet of the Grapes (Wine)

PART #4

Use Blog Name Generators for some creative blog name Ideas

If you are still having a hard time thinking a good name for your blog, make use of blog name generator also known as domain name generator.

Blog name generators basically use the same approach we have discussed above.

“Combining your target keyword with thousands of miscellaneous words and show you suggestions based on that.”

Since they are programmed software, they do give you lots of weird and irrelevant suggestions.

But the fact that they generate thousands of ideas within a click gives a valid reason to use them. (Because there will be relevant and some great name ideas too)

Having said that, here are few online name generators tools that can help you find some creative names for your blog.

#1. NameBoy

Nameboy blog name generator

Nameboy is one of the oldest domain name suggestion tool that is pretty easy to use, quick, and highly efficient.

All you need to do is enter you niche related word in the search box and click the ‘SUBMIT ‘ button.

within a second, it will generate tons of creative blog names based on the keyword you entered.

For example, if you want to start a travel blog, then, you can search for the term ‘TRAVEL‘ and here is how you will see the result:

Nameboy

Now you can go through the list and identify some good names from hundreds of results. If you don’t find something great, then you can again search for different keyword combinations to get more new ideas.

#2. Name Mesh

namemesh

NameMesh makes it easy to quickly find blog name by offering ideas in various categories.

Once you enter a keyword in this tool, it will display naming suggestions in a variety of categories like Common, New, short, SEO, Fun, etc.

For example, if you want to start a finance blog with “Finance expert” in your blog name. Here is how probably NameMesh shows you naming ideas.

Namesh

As you can see all the ideas are categorized in relevant categories. This definitely helps you quickly find some good blog name ideas.

Panabee

With an appealing yet simple UI , Panabee is yet another great tool for generating blog name and domain suggestions.

Similar to other tools mentioned above, it gives you a search-box where you can describe your blog topic in one or two word and then the system will process it for you.

It should be particularly a good choice for international bloggers, as it supports a lot of domain extensions including .co .uk .in and .com.au.

One more specific feature that makes this domain name generator different from other tools is the ability to check the availability of usernames across different social media platforms. This feature can be a big help if you want to make sure your names and branding will be consistent across all platforms you’ll be engaged on.

#4. Shopify Business Name Generator

Shopify offers plenty of handy tools to help people set up their business and boost their online presence, one of them is the business name generator.

I personally like this tool, because the blog name suggestions it gives you are more relevant and brandable compared to other tools.

Just like any other tool, enter words closely related to your niche in the search box and click on ‘GENERATE NAME’. You are not restricted to enter only one word, you can enter multiple words for more relevant suggestions

For example, I entered “sports” and it showed me hundreds of potential blog name names containing the word “Sports”.

Shopify business name generator

#5. DomainWheel 

DomainWheel is an easy to use yet very creative domain suggestion tool. It allows you to quickly identify some catchy blog name ideas based on your desired keyword.

Simply add one or more than one keyword to the search field, and then, hit ‘Search Domain’ and get the wheel spinning.

Now the tool will give you three types of results based on your keyword. The first category includes top domain suggestion with popular extension like .com, .net, or .org.

Domainwheel

The second category shows Domain Wheel’s own generated domain ideas. Unlike the first category suggestion, these domain suggestions will not include your exact keyword. They will be basically short names that it believes can be used to build a good brand.

Lastly, you’ll get three types of suggestions: one for names that sound like the keyword, one for rhyming keywords and one with random suggestions.

My Personal Advice:

In my opinion, a name generator should be your last resort when wrestling with how to come up with a blog name.

Otherwise, rather than using an automation tool, I recommend being patient for some time and manually brainstorm some personalized and descriptive names for your blog

(And yes, not to forget before using a domain suggestion tool, make use of the two-step formula I shared above. That formula will definitely help you brainstorm many potential names for your blog.)

PART #5

Validate your blog name (So you don’t regret later)

I am sure, by now you’ll have a few good ideas on what to name your blog. But before you make your final decision, here are the few things you must need to check to pick the best possible name.

#1. Short names are better than the long ones

In general, having a shorter domain name is always considered as a good branding practice.

Because longer domain names are usually hard for a website visitor to remember in the long term.

On top of that, peoples will also be more prone to entering typos with longer blog names.

This is why, I’ll recommend you to keep your domain name between 5-15 characters.

Example of a good travel blog name – Trip savvy

Example of a bad travel blog name – Adventorous travel guy

#2. Better don’t try to get more creative with your names

Maybe you have also noticed a trend over the last few years, new companies and startups are popping up with goofy looking names. 

Flickr and Tumblr are very good examples of these types of names. If you notice both the names are made with dropping a vowel “E”.

This is the reason why their users often enter Flicker.com (name how it is pronounced) in their browser instead of Flickr.com (actual name without vowel).

They basically come up with these names either to have a creative name or maybe the actual domain names with .com extension are often taken by someone.

In my opinion, it’s foolish to name a blog like this with misspelled words, which is obvious to create confusion among users.

So, please do not make this mistake. If the domain name is not available with your actual word then either use some modifier before or after your name or better look for some other names.

#3. Don’t Make it Too Narrow

Here is another great tip for those wondering how to name a blog — don’t make it narrow.

While you want your blog name to reflect your topic of the blog, a name that’s too exclusive will limit you in so ways in future.

For instance, let’s say you are a cook who is an expert in making Pizza. So you chose a cool blog name that includes the word Pizza (eg, Pizzavibe.com)

But two years later, if you have left nothing to write about Pizza or maybe you desperately want to write about other food recipes too, then your domain name (Pizzavibe.com) will obviously restrict you from doing that.

Remember that even your blog is dedicated to a specific industry, you will write the various type of articles in that industry in the long term.

So, try to pick a name that will clearly state the topic of your blog, but that’s also open minded enough to add diverse content.

Try to find a name that will clearly state the topic of your blog, but that’s also open-minded enough.

#4. It should sound like a brand name (rather than a generic description).

There is a difference between keeping your blog name something related to what your blog is about, and giving it overly description as a name.

Tell me which name sounds more trustworthy to you”

BloggingWizard” or “Blogging Tips and Tricks

Dollar Sprout” or “Tips for saving money

You can clearly notice one feels like a brand, and the other feels like a spammy junk.

The second name you are seeing (Blogging Tips And Tricks) is also called EMD or Exact Match Domain.

What is EMD or Exact Match Domain?

An EMD is a domain name that precisely matches a search query that will likely to drive traffic to your website.

For example- Busgetsmartphone.com

Here the search query “Best Budget Smartphone” is a lucrative search term, so people often choose this type of domain name that exactly matches their targeted keyword to rank higher in the search engine.

Unfortunately, this ninja technique ‎😃 used to work till a few years ago.

Understand this with an example:

If in 2012 or 13, you were typing for the term “Watch movies for Free” then Google might show you the search result very similar to this.

Search result in 2012

I know, you might have expected to see Netflix, Hulu, Stan, or any other top streaming site in the top positions, right?

But instead, the top positions were taken by spammy blogs that had exact matched domain name.

But in 2013, finally Google’s then Head of Webspam Matt Cutts announced an algorithm change meant to reduce the amount of low-quality exact match domains in Google’s search results.

Mat cutts tweets

And now finally fast forward to 2020, if you search for the same term in Google, then the result might look very similar to this:

No more exact match domains

As you can clearly see, now Google’s top search results are either those sites who actually offer free movie streaming service or a site that give you genuine information about free online movie streaming site.

The moral of the story is… avoid keeping exact math keyword related to your niche. Try to mix and match your niche related keyword with catchy suffix & prefix to come up with a catchy and brandable domain name.

#5. Don’t Use Numbers or Special Characters

When asking yourself how to name your blog, bear in mind that you should avoid including special characters and numbers. This is one of the major rules of picking a brandable domain name.

It’s hard to verbally communicate a domain name that has any special character. Because when someone hears one of these it’s hard to determine if a hyphen is required and if the numbers are written out as words or are numeric.

#6. A good blog name should be easy to pronounce and spell

Think of some of the most popular blog and websites that come in your mind.

Facebook, Instagram, Wikipedia, Reddit, Amazon, IMDB…

If you notice, one thing they have in common is that “their brand name is easy to pronounce, type and spell.”

Similarly, your target audience should be also able to type, pronounce and spell your blog name without any problem.

Understand this with an example:

Let’s say you went on a very popular podcast show and now you have obviously a good opportunity to share your blog & brand with a large audience base.

But what if your blog name is “Massachusetts

My friend no matter how loud you speak your blog name in the podcast😀, 99% of the show listeners will be not able to pronounce and type the right name in Google.

In fact, even if you spell your blog name for the listeners, chances are they will forget the spelling in just a few hours.

So, it is important to pick a blog name that is very easy to type as well as pronounce.

#7. Don’t Use Brand Names And Trademarks

While you may be drawn to devoting your blog to your favourite brand, bear in mind that you should never include a brand name in your title.

Using another brand to promote your own blog would be a violation of copyright, and company can also demand a big fine from you.

Still, if you feel that a brand name is necessary in your blog name, first read their policy regarding the brand name or contact them via email to ask whether you can legally use their name or not.

For example, if you if you’re going to start a site about WordPress or related to it, then WordPress.org clearly specifies that you cannot use the word “WordPress” in your domain name, instead they recommend to use “WP” or other variation.

Wordpress domain name policy

#8. Go With “.COM” domain extension Only

There are plenty of new domain name extensions available in today’s time. From the evergreen .com, .org, & .net to modern extensions like .pizza, .blog, .club, .space, .xyz, .nyc, etc.

While it may be fun to have a trendy domain extension like .ninja or .photopgraphy or even .blog, but I will always advise you to go with the .com extension.

The “.com” domains are by far the most credible, recognizable, and most used TLD. In fact, roughly 52% of all websites use .com domain suffixes.

Many SEO experts still claims that Google also prefer .com extension over other.

When I personally think about it, the only reason for Google or any other search engine to prioritize one extension over the other is because we as internet users simply default in our mind with .com websites. We expect it to be that way – and trust the brand with .com – and so Google likes to play to our assumptions.

Overall, we can say that a .com will help your ranking because more Google searchers will click on xyz.com than xyz.anythingelse!
