Blog naming methods

Let’s take a look at six tips for finding your perfect blog name:

1. Make a two-word blog name

You can make a blog name by using words taken from the topic of your blogs, the target audience or a goal. An example would be Speedy Blossoms for a quick-delivery flower shop.

2. Use a portmanteau

This is where a blog name is put together from the sounds of two words. An example is staycation, which is a blend of stay and vacation.

3. Use blog name generators

There are quite a few blog name generators available, such as Wordoid and Panabee. Once the blog name has been selected, you should register it as a domain name for your website.

4. Use a thesaurus

There are quite a few thesauruses on the internet, such as WordHippo. You may be able to find a great blog name by looking up synonyms of your keywords and picking the one you like the best. Alternatively, you can use an unrelated word for your blog name, such as the name of a fruit or an animal – Apple and Jaguar are good examples. You can also use alliteration as a two-word blog name, such as Friendly Fish or Clean Clothes, or use recognisable foreign words.

5. Use abbreviations

There are quite a lot of abbreviations that are used to identify organisations, such as RAC and WHO, and there is no reason why an abbreviation cannot be used as a blog name.

6. Other options

You may get an idea on what blog name to use by looking at the competition and using something similar. You could also use your own name as a blog name, if available, or sit down with a pen and paper and brainstorm until you find the right name.

Once you have a blog name, it is a simple matter to register a domain name with a web host such as https://www.names.co.uk/domain-names.

Conclusion

There are a number of ways you can find your perfect blog name. Once the name has been chosen, it can be also used as your website name.
