19 Awesome Tools for Choosing the Perfect Blog Name

Before you actually start a blog you need to think of a good name. I spent hours trying to come up with a good name for this blog, which is pretty insane now that I think about it. The reason it was such a tough decision for me is because the name has such a huge impact on a blog and how people will react to it so I wanted to get it right. At the time of choosing a blog name, I simply wrote everything down on paper until I came up with a blog name that stood out. I could’ve used a domain name generator but that wasn’t something that even crossed my mind at the time.

There’s a lot of excellent domain name generators out there that can help when you just can’t pull any good blog names out of that brain of yours. Don’t end up like me, spending hours of your day writing names down on paper. Although I did end up with a great name, the process would have went faster if I had some help from a domain name generator.

What can a domain name generator do for you?

You’re not going to completely rely on a domain name generator to come up with the exact name of your blog. That would be crazy to put the future of your blog in the hands of a machine. You’ll still have to use your own creativity when thinking of a name in addition to getting some help from a name generator. Think of the name generator as a tool that gives you some direction but doesn’t actually take you to the destination.

You’ll want a name that tells people what your blog is about immediately after they hear it or see it. Not only that, it should be as short as possible to make it easy for people to remember and share. A domain name generator probably won’t be able to find an exact blog name for you but it’ll definitely get you on the right track.

  1. That’s a lot of different domain name generators! I had no idea there were so many of them. When I started my blog I didn’t put much thought into the name and now I really regret it.

    • I had no idea that there were generators in the first place! :P I’m glad i stumbled upon this since I’ve started a little business on the side and was thinking of first starting a blog before I launch the official website to get some traffic. This would be really helpful for a catchy name. Much appreciated post!

  2. I never thought of using any of these website to generate blog names, which I would use blog name that relates to something I like and know. However, they are great sites in case I can’t think of anything because I want to have a good blog name that sounds good and won’t push people away when they hear about it. I would think blog name is one of the most important part of the blog, especially when you want more visitors so they can remember the name and not feeling like they have to leave because the name sounds weird or something.
