And if you’re like me, then positively you may spend a lot of time, just to pick the right blog name that you as well as others love even in future.
Be that as it may, that is not where the disappointment closes, remember that minute when you feel you found your brilliant blog name, which will be spick-and-span for your website, and the following flash understand that your excellent name was reserved by another person, who have nothing to do with blogging.

Doesn’t make a difference if it’s a new brand or an old one, it’s a blog name or name of a website, Brand names not just chooses your brand’s quality, it likewise creates an image of your brand. Furthermore, in future, if you turn into a tycoon blogger than your blog’s/site’s title will be much like to your name (Mark Zuckerberg – Facebook), and that is colossal. Be prepared for it.
How to pick blog name that draws individual’s attention?
Well picking a name is not hard, you can think a name at this moment, yet that will be only just a name, nothing else.
Choosing blog names passed through two ways and most of the tips mention below is solely depends on your choice. So let’s get started.
STEAL FROM OTHERS (EASIEST & FASTEST ONE, BELIEVE ME)
The entire web is an open hot spot for your thoughts, explore for blog name ideas, and there are thousands of results, watch other top blogger’s blog names and utilize them with some tweaking, or simply take their name and include some different domain extension.
Done! Your blog name is prepared.
In any case, if you are thinking you can make a huge brand by adopting any other established name, then you are entirely wrong. Your This activity will toss an immediate sign to your readers that you are insufficient imaginative to pull their issues up, and they will most presumably stay away from your blog for the indefinite future.
THINK OF YOUR OWN
In any case, if you ever felt envious towards some other brand name and if you though how they concoct these sort of innovative names, then those titles surely fall into this class.
So, before I start though the process of picking the right name, two things you need to consider, first, is your entire life sidekick? Or only for a couple of months?
If it’s a whole life’s companion, then you should be watchful while picking names.
So if you want to create your own uniqueness than further down are some tips, you can take after to make a name that worth cherishing.
(2A) WORDS ARE JUST CLOTHES CHARACTERS ARE IMPORTANT
To construct a fruitful blog, one needs to play with their audience’s mind. And that begins with your websites name.
The tally of your characters is particularly a vital point for your domain name. It’s is directly proportion to people’s interest.
The study says people often forget names that are more than 15 characters long. And if they don’t bother to remember your blog’s name, then they will surely not bother to come back.
A case of a long name “iwillteachyouhowtoblogsucessfully.com.”
Facing this domain name, readers would promptly dart on a decision that the blog is created by an amateur, and they will not hassle visiting an amateur over again for sure.
Choose blog names that are not more than 11-15 characters long; it will make your blog name clean, and people can certainly remember it.
(2B) QUALITY COMES FROM SIMPLICITY
Often people don’t realize the power of simplicity, they believe if their blog name is complicated enough then it will form a better impression on towards readers, but that’s not true at all. Complicated names create complications, it’s hard to pronounce, it’s hard to remember and indeed hard to be loved. So if your blog name doesn’t love by others, then what’s the extra chance your blog has?
(2C) NAME WITH TWO WORDS WORKS THE BEST
I love blogs that use a consolidation of more than one words in their brand name. And that’s good. When people break a noise between two words it’s most likely prove more reasonable and memorable for them.
But you need to understand it’s the name not a description of your blog. So make it simple and small. Two -three words are good enough to create a blog that sits on your reads mind, but you don’t need to create a sentence to stand out.
Now look at some examples of two words websites:
(2D) Using common words makes your blog usual:
Do you know why people are attracted to these names, Huffington post, Mashable, Moz or Squidoo?
Not only because of these blogs, publish contents that are super unique. Likewise, They have titles that have no meaning so far for the word reference.
Other than having no significance by any means, these names make a different fascination for the readers.
That’s because these are the names, that they don’t pronounce regularly, thus when any words like this knock on reader’s brain, then those words reserve a great chance to site on their mind and heart.
In this way, utilize words that are remarkable, tie them together and make a brand that is one of a kind within all around.
(2E) Don’t Bound only in English:
This one is my most loved one; there are many diverse languages speaks throughout the world. Some are understandable, and others are not so from our side. But all languages have one thing in common, and that is its uniqueness.
Every language can prove exclusive for your blog’s title. So why not give it a try.
Keep in mind great things can’t be made if things have confinements. So think beyond English and use the world verbal to play with your words. And at the end, you will have a great name in your hand, which is clearly ready to become a brand.
(2F) Use name generators:
If you’re using name generators, then that doesn’t mean you’re not inventive, so don’t stress, nobody will charge a sheet for counterfeiting.
Consider it somewhat more profound, Name generators are wonderful and helps you to think, out of the container. You will get a huge number of results; several names, some are great, and some are terrible or don’t run with your decision, so pick the once you liked and played with those words. Add things you wanted to put on or delete something that doesn’t go with your brand, and surely you will get something that you’re sitting tight for.
(2G) The Name is always The topper:
If above tips are not going with your inclination, then the last and also the most premium option is choosing you to name as your domain. Many professional established bloggers utilized their names as their sites.
Hidden secret: the blogs which project the name of the author as its domain, is considered more premium and sensible to the readers. And the reason is quite simple.
Readers like to believe the person from where they are taking advice, and if the author’s name is in the domain, it gives an illusion that the author is confident enough about his writing, and he/she believes in going with his name as a brand.
The below graphic will give you the joust of above points I mentioned.
