No name fashion blog
So you want to start a blog to document your journey into adulthood and share your experiences with other 20 or 30 somethings, but just can’t think of the ideal name to sum up what you’re all about?
Well, this article was written for you, and hopefully, you’ll be a lot closer to choosing a great name for your blog by the time we’re done. Even if you don’t have a short-list that’s full of awesome names, you should be inspired enough to develop your own naming ideas.
Step 1: What’s So Special?
The first thing you should do is to make a list of words that are related to you and your blog. Be as specific as possible.
Think about what makes you unique, what makes your content different from all the other life stories out there, and why people would want to read your blog. This is the most important part of blog naming, and unfortunately, most people don’t give it the attention it needs. And that is why they have a hard time coming up with a good name.
Spend at least half an hour reflecting on what you’ll blog about, your tone, your direction and most of all, your audience. Write down as many post ideas, keywords, concepts, goals, and anything else you can think of. And keep adding to it whenever a thought comes to mind.
Step 2: Get Ideas & Inspiration
Next, go through the list of blog names, domains and URLs below.
- You will instantly get more ideas on what your blog can be about. Notice how some are quite focused on a particular angle while others are very general.
- You will instantly get ideas on how to create a creative blog name. With a wide selection of naming styles, you’re sure to find some that you really like.
- You will instantly understand how there are a variety of options when it comes to choosing a blog name, a domain name and URL or website address for your blog.
As you browse through the list of existing 20 & 30 somethings blogs, feel free to add enhancements to your initial notes in order to refine them.

Step 3: Put It All Together
Now take your time and do some deep thinking to plan out your blog properly. If need be, sleep on it and spend a few days to tweak your plans.
By doing this, you will definitely have a list of potential names already. If you’re still unsure about them, post a comment below to get some feedback.This entry was posted in Examples & Ideas and tagged 20-somethings, 30-somethings on May 20, 2015 by Sam.
Want to start a blog about plus-sized fashion and can’t think of a catchy name that’s creative and witty? Well, feast your eyes on this huge list of names to get the inspiration you need.
You don’t need to blog about all things curvy to appreciate the naming styles used to come up with the names of these leading blogs for the big and beautiful. If your blog is related to another area of fashion, or a completely different topic, you can still apply the same naming techniques to create an awesome name for your new site.
Take your time to browse through the alphabetically listed names. Observe how the names you like have been created using a clever play on words and adapt it to coin your own brand. Try not to copy a name that’s already in use by another blogger, however much you like it.

Amazing what you can pick up by seeing brilliance in action isn’t it? Just like taking care of your body, you won’t make much progress by sitting still and scratching your head.
By learning the basics of how to create a memorable brand, appreciating the qualities of a fine name and seeing how others put theory into practice, you’ll get a lot further.
Just dive in! Instead of a ‘Blonde Vegan’, maybe you’re a Brunette or a Red Head. Rather than ‘Sporty Afros’, perhaps ‘Lean Locks’ suits you better. Want to put a twist on the name ‘Yoga in Heels’ – how about ‘Running in Stilettos’?This entry was posted in Examples & Ideas on August 9, 2014 by Sam.

One of the key questions when it comes to blog naming is whether it’s better to have a shorter name that’s not quite as catchy, or a longer one that makes a bigger impact.
There’s always going to be a trade off between name length and how much meaning you can squeeze into one or two words. So, what should you go with?
It depends on what your site is about.
Journalistic vs Topical Blog Names
For topical blogs – where your content is very focused – it makes a lot of sense to pick a name that describes what you’ll be publishing. In this case, a longer name may give you more room to articulate the spirit behind your niche.
As you can see from the longer 3 to 6 word names below, most of them succeed in catching your attention by basing their names around the quirkiness of their content. If you’re limited to one or two words, this naming strategy may not be as effective.
In contrast, journalistic blogs tend to cover a wide range of topics and hence it may not be wise to have an overly limiting name. Short two-worded brandable names are ideal if you can come up with a good one. But you may find that adding a third word gives you a lot more flexibility to create something that’s meaningful.
On the whole, it’s probably fair to say that it’s better to have a slightly longer but good name that resonates with your audience well (which makes it easier to remember), rather than a short one that your readers don’t quite understand.
To get a better feel, take a look through these names of some leading Tumblr blogs.
Catchy 3-6 Word Names
Your name needs to grab the attention of your blog’s potential readers, so focus on coming up with something cool that will appeal to them instead of worrying too much about sticking to one or two words.
Even a 6-worded name can be memorable if it’s punchy or unique enough.
Selfies at a Funeral
Who Wore It Better?
Brides Throwing Cats
How May We Hate You?
Stuff On My Rabbit
Black Guys with Puppies
Actresses Without Teeth
Kim Jong Il Looking At Things
Hung Over Owls
How Do I Put This Gently?
Food On My Dog
The Monkeys You Ordered
Clients From Hell
Jesus Is A Jerk
Gurl Goes to Africa
Shit No One Has Ever Said
Cats Watching You Have Sex
Muppets With People Eyes
Creative 2-Word Names
Look around and you’ll notice that the majority of super successful websites have no more than 2 words in their names. There must be a reason for this.
In fact, most huge brands tend to be made up of only a single word. While you may not have grandiose plans for your blog to be the next Google, Twitter or Skype, it’s worth noting how powerful brand names are generally as short as possible.
Although many of the longer names listed above are catchy and memorable, i’m sure you’ll agree that the following 2-worded ones are in a class of their own:
You’ve got lots of options. There’s no right or wrong. Just start by making a list with any idea that comes into your mind. Don’t worry if they don’t quite sound right, as you can polish them up and combine them in different ways to see what works best.
Most of the names listed above are for topical blogs, but if you’re writing a personal blog, do remember that the name can focus on yourself as the blogger, rather than the content.
There’s just one thing you should always bear in mind when coming up with a cool blog name – your audience. You should have a good grasp of who they are, what they like, what may put them off, and what they’ll think is amazingly awesome. After all, they’re the ones who you’re ultimately trying to impress.This entry was posted in Examples & Ideas on July 2, 2014 by Sam.

One of the most effective and popular blog naming techniques is to use alliteration to create a memorable and catchy name that resonates with your blog’s target market.
Alliter-what? Unless you’re an English major or have a passion for language, you may not know much about alliteration. But rest assured, you’ve definitely come across it and been charmed by how it has been used to create multi-million dollar brand names.
Heard of Mickey Mouse, Dunkin’ Donuts, Best Buy, Coca-Cola or PayPal? How about American Airlines, Donald Duck, or Bed Bath & Beyond? Notice anything similar in how these names have been formed?
According to Wikipedia, “Alliteration is the repetition of the same sounds or of the same kinds of sounds at the beginning of words or in stressed syllables of an English language phrase.” It is a powerful way to create names that are fun to pronounce, easy to remember, and filled with clever word play or witty quirkiness.
Alliterative Travel Blog Names
Here are 11 leading travel blogs which use alliteration to come up with cool sounding names that are catchy and unique:
Notice how you can add a bit of variation and deviate from the standard 2 words that begin with the same alphabet (i.e. Mickey Mouse).
- Everything Everywhere – if you can find words that begin with the same word (such as ‘every’ in this case), the alliterative effect will be more striking
- Time Travel Turtle – find 3 words that are all alliterative and you’ll have triple the effect
- Heather On Her Travels – not every single word needs to begin with the same letter or sound the same
- Beers and Beans – using ‘and’ to combine 2 alliterative words gives you a lot of flexibility to come up with lots of names
- Mom’s Minivan – where possible, keep it short and simple
- Monkeys & Mountains – try and find words that have the same number of syllables to get a nice phonetic balance
- Mom Most Traveled – names don’t have to be perfectly or fully alliterative to be good
- Landlopers – if there’s an appropriate word where both syllables start with the same letter, it’s going to make a really cool name
- Camels & Chocolate – do camels eat chocolate?
- The Travel Tart – 3 words, 4 syllables, conveys a different meaning to different people
- Tourist 2 Townie – when spelt out, 2 begins with a ‘t’ as well. Clever.
Now it’s your turn.
Regardless of what your blog is about, you can start by creating a list of relevant words, phrases and common sayings. After that, get creative and combine them in alliterative ways to come up with awesome names that are packed with meaning, wit and catchiness.This entry was posted in Examples & Ideas on March 31, 2014 by Sam.
It takes a fair bit of creativity to come up with a witty name that puts a smile on your targeted audience’s face. If you can achieve this, and have a deeper, relevant meaning behind the name, you’re onto a winner.
One of the most effective ways to create a funny blog name is to use a pun that people can relate to. By using clever word play and innovative spelling to give a double meaning to existing phrases, you can come up with some really cool names for a blog.
To get your creative juices flowing, here are xx examples of punning food related names which should give you plenty of ideas on what works and what doesn’t.

Many of these may be names of restaurants and existing blogs already. Try not to copy them outright, but be inspired by them to create a name that’s originally yours.
Have fun, and if you’re not very good with words, always ask friends and family for help. To a wordsmith, name play is fun and challenging. But for everyone else, it can be quite tricky. So, don’t tear your hair out if you can’t think of anything that’s vaguely amusing, go find someone who loves word games and has a way with words.This entry was posted in Examples & Ideas on March 25, 2014 by Sam.
One of the best ways to get great ideas for a new blog’s name is to get inspiration from existing blogs that have really cool names.
To save you time in hunting for them, here are 22 awesome names that have been handpicked to get you going:
- Celebritology – Appending the suffix ‘ology’ to a blog’s core focus is a quick way to create a clever sounding and unique name, especially if the resulting word is not already in existence and you actually end up with a brand new word. Celebritology is one of these made up words, as there is no known offcial science or study of celebrities.
- Rawmazing – Yes, raw food is amazingly good for you, and if you want to reflect this in your blog’s name, then the blend of ‘raw’ and ‘amazing’ produces ‘rawmazing’. At the same time, it could double up with a secondary meaning of guiding readers through the maze of being a raw foodie.
- Sacatomato – If your first impression was that this blog has something to do with Sacramento, then you’re very right, and the blogger has achieved his or her objective of catchily incoporating the blog’s focus into a made up name that combines ‘Sacramento’ with ‘tomoato’. It also sounds a little like ‘sack of tomato(es)’ but that’s probably a coincidence. Why tomatoes? Not sure. There isn’t a hidden meaning in every name. Sometimes, its chosen just because it sounds funny.
- Vanilla Garlic – Whether it’s from seeing two words that you’ve never seen slung together before, or from trying to imagine (or cringe at) the taste described, this name does stop you in your tracks as its certainly different. It doesn’t make you want to taste it, but does make you curious enough to want to take a look at whether this food blogger’s opinions are as unique and quirky as the name he’s chosen for his blog.
- Eagletarian – At first glance the name looks like it might be a play on the word ‘egalitarian’, but further inspection reveals that it is a blog about the Philadelphia Eagles, where the word ‘Eagle’ has been combined with an ‘arian’ suffix to produce a name that suggests the blogger is a believer, advocate and supporter of the Eagles.
- Blogriculture – Think this sounds like it may be the name of a blog about agriculture?Well, it is. The best names sound good, are memorable and communicate what the underlying blog focuses on. This combination of ‘blog’ and ‘agriculture’ is a natural fit, but other words and topics may not gel together quite as nicely.
- Angry Chicken – Birds and chickens are animals that you don’t typically view as being bad tempered or angry. That’s why these types of names work well in perking a reader’s attention, as they are quirky and a little weird. Such naming styles are not cleverly infused with meaning, they are memorable, strange and just make you want to check them out.
- Fashionologie – For blog topics that are extremely popular such as fashion, where most naming styles and strategies have been overused already, you can combine 2 different approaches to produce something unique. In this case, it’s using an ‘ology’ suffix, and modifying the spelling to ‘ologie’ to give it a fashionable french sound.
- PEA Soup – The use of a generic term of phrase in a non-generic way often works wonders, such as adopting Apple as a name to sell computers rather than edible apples. This blog is called PEA Soup but it’s got nothing to do with peas or soups. Instead the capitalized PEA indicates that it’s an acronym, which actually stands for Philosophy, Ethics and Academia. And the Soup presumably refers to the way these subjects have been blended together.
- House of Spots – Without knowledge of the content, you may be forgiven for thinking this is some sort of acne treatment blog that has adapated the phrase ‘house of cards’ and replaced ‘cards’ with ‘spots’. But once you find out the blogger is a dog lover, you’d be right in concluding the blog is all about dalmatians and the home that houses them.
- Just Bento – When you think of Japanese food, bento boxes may come to mind, but when you hear or read the word ‘bento’ used in a blog’s name, you’ll instantly think it’s focused on Japanese cuisine. Sometimes, a unique word (ie bento) from a particular topic can be used to make a more creative name, rather than using a generic description (ie japanese food blog).
- Typographica – A well created name combining ‘typography’ or ‘typographic’ with an ‘ica’ suffix to produce a unique result that presumably means a collection of all things related to typography. Or, an ‘a’ could have simply been added to the end of ‘typographic’ to turn a descriptive word into a cooler sounding name for a blog.
- Culturistas – Most of the time, any name with an ‘ista’ suffix usually leads one to think that it’s a name for a fashion blog. In this case, the blog is related to all things culture, from fashion and style to music and nightlife.
- Cats In Sinks – Why on earth are cats fascinated with sinks? It doesn’t matter if you don’t know, all that does is you know they are, and hence it makes a great name for a cat lovers blog, especially if it is filled with pictures of them playing, sitting, or lounging in sinks. When you start a new blog in an already overcrowded market, a generic name like ‘funny cat pictures’ just won’t cut it, as there are plenty of other blogs with the same name, so find a unique niche and name your blog accordingly.
- The Sake Guy – A blog about Japanese life and culture doesn’t need to have the word ‘Japan’ in its name. In fact, a creatively named blog almost always doesn’t, as there are cooler and more indirect ways of getting that message across, such as using an unmistakably Japanese word or concept, such as ‘sake’ for instance.
- Give Me Moore! – Most of the time a punning blog name will work its magic to reflect the wittiness and creativity of the blogger, even if they didn’t come up with it themselves. Here, ‘more’ from the phrase ‘give me more’ has been modded to ‘Moore’ which looks like it is a surname. On closer inspection, this is a blog by photographer Kelly Moore. Perfect fit.
- Traffick – A cleverly modified spelling of a word (used in its descriptive sense or in a brandable way) is a creative method to make up a blog’s name. In this case, a ‘k’ has been added to the end of the word ‘traffic’ to create a new word that is pronounced in the same way and sounds identical. Short, memorable and classy.
- Fooducate – It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that this blog educates readers about food. That’s because the name is effective in conveying the essence of its content and what it hopes to achieve. This name blends ‘food’ with ‘educate’, but notice that it does not need to do it in a grammatically correct way. If so, the term would be ‘food education’ and the resulting name would be ‘fooducation’.
- The Foodinista – Fashion and food goes hand in hand for some people. Both are indulgences that women love, so why not create a name that is inspired by elements from each of them. This blog combines the word ‘foodie’ with the ending from ‘fashionista’ to come up with a catchy sounding name that tells readers the blogger is obsesseed with food.
- Infrastructurist – You get accupuncturists but never have we come across any infrastructurists. This is obviously a made up word combining ‘infrastructure’ with an ‘ist’ suffix to suggest that the blogger is some sort of an infrastructure expert or the blog is somehow related to the construction and related industries.
- Eat. Drink. Smile. – Eat-Love-Pray type names are generally still regarded to be relatively creative, especially when compared with unimaginative descriptive keyphrases. You can modify the 3 verbs to include anything you like. In this case, it’s eating, drinking and smiling.
- Managing Mankind – This name’s alliterative qualities definitely enhances its appeal, especially since both words start with the same three letters ‘man’, and not just one or two. But it is the combined meaning that lifts the impact of the name even further, as a claim of ‘managing mankind’ can only incite interest in anyone who comes across the name.
