183 Ways to Create a Cool Name for your 20 or 30 Something Blog about Life

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.

  1. alsie c.

    Hi, great help you are providing here. I used to write and rant on blogs, but life got a little too busy after the college years have ended. I am looking for a name for a personal blog. I feel that i should start writing again, and hopefully to continue writing on how i am about to make a 360° degree change in life. I used to have a blog called ‘cinderellainreality’ which portrays a teen wanting to explore but with a given curfew. Now i’d say it’s more towards growing up and taking leaps in life not knowing where it will take us. Any suggestions?

    1. Sam Post author

      ‘Leaps in Life’ jumped out from what you described.

      Or maybe modify it to ‘Leap of Life’ or some other variation.

      Do share any names you’re considering as that will provide more of an insight into the naming style you like and any keywords or themes you identify with.

  2. Kaitlin

    Hi, great article! I am starting a blog finally after months of contemplating the idea. I am a young adult with many interests. Letting my feelings out through writing is very helpful for me which is why I want to blog. I have many topics that I would talk about as well such as style, beauty, food and all around lifestyle blogging topics. I am just having a horribly hard time deciding on a name. Any ideas on key words I could play with and/or use?


    ***** REPLY ******

    Hi Kaitlin,

    Yes, a lot of people find that blogging is a good way to let their feelings out. The choice of keywords is really up to you. You can get lots of inspiration from the 100+ names listed above.

    To get meaningful suggestions, please take a look at the replies i just shared with a couple of other people who are trying to name their blogs:

    “Please can you share some examples of blog names you like (or don’t like), as well as any you’ve come up with yourself and may be considering. It’ll be much easier to offer you good suggestions once i know the styles you prefer.”

    “As you review other blog names to see how they’re composed, you should get ideas for your own. For instance, some people want their personal names in the blog name, others want to incorporate the place they live to make the blog more locally focused, others prefer to have something wittily funny, while the majority are looking for a clever twist on words. What’s your preference?”

    1. Sam Post author

      Look forward to hearing your thoughts, or better still, if you’ve already chosen a name, what you ended up going with. Good luck with your blog.

  3. Hannah

    Hi! I wanted to stop by and say thank you for mentioning my blog on your site. I appreciate it and have enjoyed checking out the other sites you listed as well. If any readers want to know the story behind the name of my blog you can check out my first post here: https://awastedlifeblog.wordpress.com/2014/10/14/a-wasted-life-2/

    Thanks again and good luck to everyone who is working to come up with a creative name!
    Happy Writing 🙂

    ***** REPLY ******

    Hi Hannah,

    You’re most welcome. Thanks for stopping by to share your blog name’s story. You write very well, it’s a great read.

    1. Sam Post author

      Btw Hannah, the domain name awastedlifeblog.com is available to be registered. You may want to grab it before it gets taken by someone else.

  4. Aqua

    I’m looking to write a personal about more random things, DIY’s,silly posts, drawings, stories, motivating posts and similar things. I don’t suppose you could think of anything? My screen name is usually something like Aqua.

    ***** REPLY ******

    Hi Aqua,

    To think of potential names you might like, it would be helpful to know a bit more about your taste in naming styles.

    As mentioned to Kaitlin:

    “Please can you share some examples of blog names you like (or don’t like), as well as any you’ve come up with yourself and may be considering. It’ll be much easier to offer you good suggestions once i know the styles you prefer.”

    “As you review other blog names to see how they’re composed, you should get ideas for your own.

What’s your preference?”

    1. Sam Post author

      Do post back with more details once you’ve had a deeper think about your blog, it’s audience and the type of name that may be suitable.

  5. sarah

    okay, so I want to start a blog just about me and life. I love to write, but it freaks me out that people will be reading my thoughts; however I am going to do it! I need help creating a blog name. I have looked at name generators and asked friends, but still didn’t love what I was hearing. SOS, sincerely a girl who just wants to write.

    ***** REPLY ******

    Hey Sarah,

    Please refer to the other replies i’ve posted asking for more information regarding naming styles and examples of names you like/dislike.

    “I have looked at name generators and asked friends, but still didn’t love what I was hearing” – could you share some of these and also the reasons why you don’t like them?

    To suggest good names, it’s useful to know what to avoid as much as what to focus on.

    1. Sam Post author

      “it freaks me out that people will be reading my thoughts”

      Fortunately, they will only be able to read the thoughts you share 🙂

  6. Melissa

    I’m struggling to find the right name for my blog, I’m just finishing my A-levels, soon to go into the daunting life of a uni student. I want to write a blog that will inspire, give advice, hope and allow me to channel my thoughts. I want it to be positive, maybe include tips, art, literature, reviews etc.

    I’m a creative person and I’ve had personal issues in the past but I want to move on and grow as a person as I find myself..

    any ideas?

    p.s. my thoughts are a jumble so I apologise for the rambling

    ***** REPLY ******

    Hi Melissa,

    To get more/better suggestions, please refer to my other replies requesting for more information about the type of names you like.

    Without knowing what you like, here are some random ideas …

    Rambling Mel
    Unjumbled Thoughts
    A Daunting Life
    Let’s Move On
    Lost & Found
    Creating Myself

    As you can see there are plenty of ways to create a unique blog name.

  7. Elle

    Hi Sam,

    I’m stuck on finding a name for my blog. My name is Elle and I would like to have it included in the blog name. I’m from the island of barbados but currently living in NYC. My blog will be about what I’m up to in NY with my fiancé and life in the city in general. I will also post about fashion beauty and travel. I’m also a fashion model. Hope you have better suggestions than I can come up with!


    ***** REPLY ******

    Hi Elle,

    Here are some ideas …

    Liberty Belle
    Island Elle
    Elle Heeled (a pun of ‘well heeled’)
    Belle de Jour
    Ring My Belle
    Elle in New York

    Do refer to my other replies asking for more details if you would like more suggestions.

  8. Uju

    i currently have a few write ups about love, life and health. I basically write inspirational articles. I am currently using loveandlifezone but I need something a one word idea and something fun to the ears. It will portray love, life and health but a catchy name easy to remember and speaks inspiration. Any suggestions please.

    ***** REPLY ******

    Hello Uju,

    Yes, loveandlifezone is quite unexciting and a bit of a mouthful.

    “I need something a one word idea” … does this mean you’re looking for a name that only has 1 word?

    If so, please can you share some of the words you like and may be considering in order to get feedback on them and further suggestions?

    1. Sam Post author

      A few ideas to get you going …

    Just go through the list above and pick out a handful you like, and a few you don’t. Then share a little about why you like or are not keen on them.
