  • Never use a lengthy blog name

  • Never use trade mark names and the names which has reserved copyrights

Naming a blog involves some series of steps. To make the naming task easier and to choose a perfect and a catchy name for your blog, follow the steps mentioned below

Step 1: Analyse


Instead of selecting a random name for your blog, first take a sheet of paper and pen or open a notepad in your computer and do a self-analysis on your blog and come up with the answers for the below mentioned questions.


  1. What is the niche of the blog?

  2. Who is the targeted audience?

  3. What is the tone of the blog? (Friendly, professional, etc)

  4. List the synonyms related to your niche and the goal of the blog

  5. List the keywords connecting the niche of the blog


Lot of blogs are available in internet under various niches. So after answering the above questions have a glance at other blogs and websites similar to the niche of your blog. Looking at other similar blogs will definitely give you an idea and clarity.

While doing a research on other blogs, give more importance to the usage of the blog names, keywords and taglines. Checking other blogs for reference is not wrong but never use the same name and keywords as mentioned in other blogs and websites.

Step 2: Generate new blog names


After a complete analysis and research of the blog names, jot down your blog name ideas connecting your niche, goal and the keywords. Just play with the words you have listed, put the words together and come up with some meaningful words relating your blog.

Remember the below mentioned points while you play with the words to frame a name


  • You can use abbreviations, nouns, humorous words, descriptive words, alliterations, verb tenses and other variation of words while jotting down the names

  • With a perfect combination of the words, you can also invent new words and can use that as your blog name

  • The name should be simple and meaningful

  • The blog name should not confuse the visitors and should be memorable

  • The blog name should be easy to type. So avoid using tricky and complicated words


There are many online blog and domain name generators available in the internet. You can also mention the niche of your blog and can randomly select the names generated by the online blog and the domain name suggestion tools for your selected niche.

Step 3: Shortlist the blog names


From the list of your own blog name ideas shortlist the name which suits the best to your blog.
While shortlisting the names from the list of your own blog name ideas, check whether your selected blog name provides an appropriate answer for the following questions.


  1. Does the selected blog name symbolize the niche of the blog?

  2. Will the selected blog name provide a proper justification to the content of the blog?

  3. Is the name unique?

  4. Does the name sound like a good brand name?

  5. Does the selected blog name exist in internet and in other social media websites?


For the question number 1 to 4, your selected blog name should provide a strong answer as 'YES' and for the question number 5, you have to check the internet and should come up with an answer as 'NO'.

Your blog name should not create a clash with the existing brand or should not give a resemblance to the existing blogs and websites. Just type your selected blog name in the search engines or in a domain name provider website and check whether your name is on live or blocked by other users for use. If your name exists in internet, then do not select that name for your blog.

Also type your name in the search bar of the social media websites and check for the availability, because to promote a blog you can create pages in the social media websites like Facebook and Twitter. At that time if you find any name similar to your blog name, then it many lead to unwanted confusions.

Follow the above mentioned steps and eliminate the blog name one by one from your list and find some perfect names for your blog.

Step 4: Add a proper extension to the name


After shortlisting some unique blog names, add an exact extension to the shortlisted blog names. Your blog name along with an extension as .com, .org, .in, .edu, etc at the end should sound perfect when you pronounce your domain name.

Never use wordpress.com, blogspot.com and other trade mark names at the end. Always have a unique domain name and avoid using the trade mark names.

Lot of Top Level Domains (TLD) and Sub Level Domains (SLD) are available but it is highly recommended to use .com as it is one of the best and recognizable extensions. You can also add other extensions such as .net, .org to your blog name.

While selecting the extension strictly avoid using new TLDs and SLDs that are not so famous. Some of the not so famous TLDs are .guru, .solutions, .site, .club, .life, .shop, etc.

Step 5: Finalize a catchy blog name


After adding the extension to the shortlisted blog names, once again check the availability of the domain name in the domain name registration websites.

Sometimes your blog name with different extensions may exist in internet. If you have selected a name as 'abcxyz.com' and if someone has a blog in the name of 'abcxyz.org', then avoid using such names. Because using such names also gives some confusions and it may spoil your brand name.

Eliminate the already existing domain name from your shortlisted list and finalize a perfect and a unique domain name for your blog.

After selecting a domain name say it loud. While saying a name louder, some names will sound weird and some will be difficult to pronounce along with the extension. So shout the name louder before finalizing a name.

While pronouncing the blog name along with an extension, the entire domain name should sound like a perfect brand name.

If your domain name sounds catchy and gives a perfect brand name then you can obviously finalize that name as your blog name.
