117+ Cool User Name Ideas

Why a page devoted to cool user name ideas? Well, when registering on a website, most people create a user name that is just their name and maybe a number. It’s not very inventive and perhaps a little lazy.

We’ve assembled a list of user names to help you come up with something clever. Something that says, “hey I’m special and unique.” Make up a user name that reflects you. A name that is memorable, entertaining, and fun. You don’t want to use a name that is offensive or hateful, but a name that is appropriate for its use.

And, by all means, pick something that’s unforgettable. 

Ten Best User Names

1.) not_your_favorite_mouse – This name immediately conjures up “that mouse.” But if you read into it a little bit, it’s also kind of mysterious.

2.) the_up_and_comer – It’s simple and direct and tells people you mean business and you’re on the fast track to the top.

3.) better_with_bacon – Well, everyone knows everything is better with bacon. So, this means that you’re good, but even better with bacon.

4.) needs_therapy – Again, this is a user name that can mean many different things. Why do you need therapy and what kind of therapy do you need? Tricky.

5.) the_big_kahuna – This really says it all and tells people that the real ruler is in the room. This name was made popular by surfers, so “surf’s up.”

6.) make_mine_al dente – Perfect for a cook. This user name may make some people hungry, but more than likely, they’ll know you’re spot on.

7.) conan_the_employer – Okay it’s funny and strong and what if you are an employer? Even better. This would also be a great video game user name.

8.) i_am_with_cupid – A play on the whole I’m With Stupid T-shirts. This one is cute and could be used on a dating site.

9.) still_uploading – This makes people think, hey wait a minute, what is your user name. If it is still uploading, what could it be?

10.) i_shot_the_sheriff – A tough name and nice reggae reference. Bob Marley fans will like this user name.

User Name Selection Ideas

Often, your user name is the first impression of you on a website. If you discover that the user name you want is already taken, you can make a slight fix by adding an adjective like love_my_music you could change to love_my_jazzy_music.

Or adding a number buh_buh_bye changes to buh_buh_bye_666. If you suspect that your employer might see your name, keep it professional.

Importantly, use your user name wisely and it will be good for you. Think long and hard about your user name and pick one that fits you. Have fun using it and enjoy the reactions that it elicits. For instance, if you want to hide behind your user name so people don’t know it’s you, pick a name that’s opposite. A name that no one would believe was you. But be careful, don’t use the name to be mean or hurtful. It’s always best to pick a user name that brings a smile or laugh, you can’t go wrong with that.
