600+ Cool Instagram Names

By on March 2, 2017

Picking Out Your Instagram Name and Why It’s Important:

You may ask yourself why a username is one of the most important things to care about when it comes to navigating the vast world of social media. The answer is simple. Usernames give your viewers and followers a tiny glimpse at you. This may or may not draw them into your page and get them to follow you. Unlike in our dreaded realities where our names are given to us without consent, online we actually hold all the power to choose who we want to identify ourselves as. This is an amazing gift, because it gives you a chance to express yourself. It also gives you  a sense of accomplishment when you finally get to click that ‘save username’ button and you feel like a whole new person. However, picking out your social media names can be a tad bit stressful on you. Especially when it comes down to choosing your Instagram name. Your Instagram name is important when creating a popular and well moderated account. People will learn this name, search for this name when they want to see your posts and it’ll become a nickname you are known by. But not everyone is fortunate enough to have the creative mind of an author, who can easily spit out names left and right.  This makes it difficult to think up something cool, cute or funny up on their own. That’s why this article is here to help anyone out there struggling to find a great name to use for Instagram. First, we’ll do some explaining on how to choose the absolute perfect name. Then we will discuss what you should do if your favorite name has already been taken by someone else. That’s bound to happen due to the high volume of Insta users out there in the world. And lastly we’ll give you hundreds of names and ideas that you can scan through to see if anything catches your eye! This is your ultimate guide to picking out a username for Instagram.

Must Knows For Picking Out A Great Name:

  • Make sure you pick out something that is easy enough for you to remember. You don’t want to struggle with logging in everyday or have to reset your username often because it slipped your mind.
  • Try not to copy any of your followers or the people that you are following. The last thing you want to do is start an Insta-War.
  • If your colleagues or employers are can view your  Instagram account or posts in anyway or receive access to it then you will want to ensure that your Instagram name is highly appropriate. In case it gets stumbled across by someone important. If you want to prevent people from seeing that it’s your Instagram account you have to option to set up a security net. You can go into your account settings and choose to make your account private. This means that when someone wants to follow you, they will have to get approval from you beforehand.

Personalizing Your Username:

It’s important to remember that it’s okay to take your time when picking out a name that best suits you or the account you run. When it comes to personalizing you will want to first think of what type of name you are ultimately aiming for. Is your Instagram account a personal account? Then you will want to start thinking up names that best suit you as a person. Do you run a business account? More than likely you will want to keep your business name in the username someway or another. Whether you add something more to it or not is completely up to you. Do you run a meme or humor page? That would make for a great opportunity to think up something hilarious to claim as your name! If you run an animal account for a pet of yours you can use their name. Try out something like SeeSpotRun if your dog’s name is spot. Keep in mind that your name is going to make or break what people think of your page. If your name shares no relevancy with your posts it can lead your followers to grow annoyed by it. You want to be certain that your name is an accurate representation of you or your posts.

The Best Strategies For Creating A Name On Your Own:

It’s understandable if you don’t want to just go on the internet and snatch an already created name. Maybe you want to personalize it just a bit more. That’s totally okay! By all means let’s get your brain working so that you have all the tools necessary to think up something perfect for you.

Step 1. Think about your life. Use that to help you brainstorm some personalized ideas. Use your hobbies, interests, passions or your job. If you are an artist you could use something like Jon The Artist or Artistic Envy. If you like to play sports you could try adding that to your name. Do you have a knack for tacos or pizza? Maybe you love candy? Use those in your name. Keep it unique to what you are all about and what you center your life around. Even if it’s something as silly as food or a television series you enjoy watching. Most people enjoy using their favorite movies or fictional characters. It’s done more often than not.

Step 2. Do you know any other languages? You can surely make your username bilingual to keep it interesting. Are you a tiny bit of a nerd? Incorporate Elvish or Klingon into your name. Language is art and it should be used accordingly. This step is primarily for you to think way outside of the box. Sometimes usernames are even more beautiful in another language.

Step 3. Keep it simple and ensure it’s not nonsense. This means picking something completely silly is out of the question. Your username should have a certain flow to it. It should sound good coming off of the follower’s tongue.

Step 4. Proper placement is extremely important when it comes to creating a great Instagram name. Combining a noun and an adjective is an ideal way to get a name set for you. You can use your favorite things, places or yourself as a noun and then add an adjective with it. This keeps your username short, sweet and easy to remember. If nothing seems to fit you can try rhyming with the noun instead. In example: ShimmyJimmy or JonDon.

Step 5. If every single one of the steps before step number five ends up failing you, then there is one more thing you can try (besides looking through our list below). You can go online and use a username generator. That’s right, there’s a generator, well actually several of them, that will do all your dirty work for you when it comes to thinking up a sweet name for your Insta account. However, having a name created for you takes away most of the personilization you should be aiming for. If you’re not really concerned about your name being a description of who you are or what you love then go ahead and generate it. You also can use a generator to help get your brain juices flowing and utilize it to get some ideas. You don’t always have to use the name you are given. You can just base your name off an idea you got from there. To find a generator all you have to do is type in ‘username generator’ into the search platform that you use. It’s really that easy.

What Should You Do If The Name You Want Is Taken?

Well you definitely want to save yourself from wasted time panicking. Just because the name you like is unavailable doesn’t mean that you can’t get around it! There are ways, my friend, many ways. So don’t fret, more than likely you’ll still be able to use the name you wanted originally, but with a few tweaks made to it. Yes, it’s a bummer that you can’t just use the awesome name you picked out, but it’s not the end of the world. We promise. How do you get around a taken username? A lot of the time people will opt to add in a number or two from their birthdays or use a variation of their first, last or middle initials. However, this tactic is a little worn out and may make your account seem less appealing to your followers. So, if you can’t use those then what’s next? The simplest method of getting almost the exact name you had your heart set on: Place a period anywhere in your name. Whether it’s before or after a letter, in the middle or between words. You can place periods after each word or just stick to one. Either way one of these methods will guarantee the name you want as your own and there’s no way for it to be denied. If you want to spice it up a bit you can go a step further and instead of using a period mark you can use an exclamation, underscore or even a dash. Kind of like when Panic! At The Disco did it. It looks cool, right? You really can’t go wrong with adding any of the mentioned marks. When you are thinking of a name for a business or group you should try to keep the name of whatever you’re representing in your title, but sometimes someone else may have taken that name or owns a similar business. The world is a gigantic place so it’s bound to happen to anyone. Keeping your business name is important so if it’s already taken you can add your location or the owner’s name to the business name. In example if your business name is Crab Shack you could change your username to Jon’s (name) Crab Shack, Johnson (last name) Crab Shack Or Daytona (location) Crab Shack. You could also change any Zs to Ss or vice versa. The last thing you can try out if all else fails is alternating between uppercase and lowercase letters. If after all of that, you’re still struggling with getting approval for your username and it’s still taken, you can try adding in numbers. Be aware that posting your personal numbers like your social, your address or your telephone can be dangerous. Your account may be private but your username will not be. This could leave you vulnerable to internet hackers or even stalkers if you have any. One of these methods will get you a unique username and there’s no way that all variations will be used!

Whatever You Do: DON’T RUSH IT!

They say that all good things take time. So with that being said a great piece of advice when creating any part of an online profile, especially the name, is take your time! For goodness sake’s don’t just jot down the very first things that pop into your head. Our imaginations are wild and the first option isn’t always the most appealing one. You want to go over a lot of things carefully before you click ‘save’.

How Do You Know When You’ve Finally Picked The Perfect Name?

You’ll just know it when you think of it. Something will feel right to you when you say your username outloud. It will feel like a glove fitting perfectly on your hand. It should roll of your tongue in a way that you find pleasant. Go ahead and talk to a family member or a friend and try out the name with them. Get a second opinion if you’re feeling uncertain at all. There’s nothing wrong with asking for a little help. Asking someone else will help you identify if there’s any problems with your username. These problems may include: Being too long, not being easy to pronounce or sounding ridiculous. Just because you like your name doesn’t mean it’s the best name for your account and a second set of eyes and ears will be able to tell you that.

Note: Keep in mind the following names are name ideas and can be switched up into any variation. You can add any punctuation you like to them and also put the words together. These names should give you an idea that will lead you to your perfect Instagram name. Feel free to use your creativity and make them any name you want. A good tip is to write down a name and then write down several variations of it to see if you like it. Add your name, numbers or anything else you’d luck. Good luck on your Instagram name journey and may the odds be ever in your favor!
