I’m considering a blog name change. It’s not that I don’t like the current one I have, I love it actually, but my Aries’ nature dictates that I’m a person who thrives on change. When I start to feel uninspired or low on ambition I know I need to make changes in order to keep things fresh and thought-stimulating.
Coming up with a name that can be lived with for a good long while, and that isn’t already taken, can be rather difficult.
The most common names won’t work because they’re either being used already or someone has bought it up so that you can pay thousands of dollars to purchase it from them. Kinda sleezy but everyone has to make their money I guess. It’s just the way of the world.
So, one has to be creative and do some thinking. Here are a few of my brainstorming ideas, questions to ask myself, web pages I’ve been consulting, and examples of existing websites that I thought were cleaver or creative.
How did you come up with your blog name? Do you still love it or do you want to change it?
What are your favorite colors?
Colors can be an awesome inclusion. My favorite color is red but I love all colors really.
Favorite Words and Your Thesaurus
Favorite words can be used or manipulated by changing spellings and whatnot. I always thought The Weeknd was rather clever.
Names of flowers (rose, lilac, azalea, orchid), gems (diamond, opal), trees (willow, oak, pine, aspen), food (apple, lemon, lime).
Publication-related words to use
Post, journal, gazette, times, herald, sentinel, standard are all common names.
- The Huffington Post is of course well-known.
- Gentlemen’s Gazette sounds like it could be risqué but it’s really about men’s fashion.
- The Blog Herald is great, especially if your name happens to be Herald.
Months & Seasons
I was born in the month of April so I had thought about using that in a blog name. I love the band name Blue October as well, which would have made a great name for a blog.
What about using summer, spring, fall, or winter? What about springtime, solstice, etc.
Names of songs could be turned into a great blog or website name. I haven’t researched all of these so I can’t speak to the availability but it’s something to think about.
And what about the names of movies or books! So many to choose from and adapt.
- “Paint It Black”
- “Karma Police” (Keto Karma)
- “She Talks to Rainbows”
- “No Satisfaction”
- “Crimson and Clover” (The Crimson Clover Blog)
- “Ticket to Ride”
- “Let it Be”
- “She Wore Blue Velvet” (Blue Velvet Spa)
- “When September Comes”
More Examples Great Blog Names
Ideas are endless and keywords can be found anywhere and everywhere! I’ve come up with quite a few possible blog names but have yet to settle on one. I keep brainstorming though.
Hope everyone is well and happy!
