Choosing a blog name is DIFFICULT. It’s arguably the hardest part about starting a blog. The name is your brand, your future, and how people will remember you. Of course it’s possible to change your name in the future, but it can be a tough transition, so it’s easier to get it right the first time.
I’m going to share three tools that I’ve found useful when coming up with website or blog names!
Name Mesh is one of the coolest tools ever. I recently used it when trying to find a name for one of my side projects. It allows you to input keywords, then it finds good domain names based on those keywords. But it looks in several different sections. I think the best is the Similar section. This one uses an intelligent algorithm (and tools like a thesaurus) to find unique names based on what you entered. So if I put in nose graze, here are some of the suggestions it gives me:
And as it spits back the results, it checks the availability of the domain names and hides the taken ones.
LeanDomainSearch is another great tool for coming up with a name, while checking the availability of it. You enter a keyword that you want the domain name to include and the site automatically pairs that word with other commonly found keywords and spits back the results. It’s a great way to find a name if you already have one “must-have” keyword in mind.
NameChk is a tool that allows you to input a username and see if it’s available or not on all social media sites. This is incredibly useful for checking how common or used a certain name is.
