22 Creatively Catchy and Clever Names to Inspire You

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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).
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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’.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.

  1. Hi i read your article on naming a blog…
    i am making a blog on entirely gaming content.
    so is it cool to name my blog Gamers Galaxy?
    and i think GamerZGalaxy or GamerzGalaxy would be much better….
    please give me your sugggstions .
    it would be really helpful.
    thnx in advance.

    • Hi Vizz,

      I’d go with ‘Gamers Galaxy’ as it passes the radio test and there’s no possible confusion on how it’s spelt.

      That said, when naming a blog, you always want to have your target audience in mind, and if you think they will resonate with the Z in gamerZ then it does work as well.

      At the end of the day, if you feel GamerzGalaxy is much better, then go with it.

      Good luck with the blog and apologies for the delayed reply.

  2. Hey i am impressed with the blog names above I have my blog
    Right now i just started
    Its just about makeup beauty
    But now i feel like my blog should tell everything
    From makeup to fashion to beauty kind of a lifestyle blog
    I wanted to improvise my blog name
    I have ChicAffairs in mind
    But I m stil not sure about it
    It doesnt give me the happy feeling after listening to this name
    Please help

    • You should like your own blog’s name. Sleep over ChicAffairs for a few days and it may grow on you.

      In the meantime, try to make a list of as many other options as you can.

      How about using Heartistic from the name of your current blog?

  3. hi I want to start a blog but can’t think of a name, great names above but still lost. it is about my life a girls life! pls helpppp!!!

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

    Hello RJ,

    “great names above but still lost” …. why?

    If you can spend some time to think through this question, you should have greater clarity.

    Go through some of the names listed above and ask yourself what you like or don’t like about them. Jot these notes down, post them back here and we should be able to zoom in on a suitable name for you.

    • Do share any names you’ve come up with yourself, even if you don’t really like them. In addition, go through other blogs and list down the ones with names you like.

  4. just want to start a blog covering things that catches my fancy (which could cover a wide range of subject). i chose the name “Eclectic” . what do you think?

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

    Hi Pearl,

    Yes, that’s a great name. Just make sure the things that catch your fancy are actually eclectic so that you give substance to the name.

    • Worth a thought … there may be a lot of brands and even other blogs called ‘eclectic’. Maybe you can name your blog ‘Eclectic Pearl’ to make it more unique.

      For example, if potential readers search for ‘eclectic’ in Google, they’re unlikely to find your blog. But if you name your blog ‘Eclectic Pearl’ and they search for it, you will definitely appear at the top.

  7. Hi

    I want to start blogging but can’t think of a name that convinces me – help! 🙂

    I am planning to write a bit about everything until I decide what I want to focus on but it’s probably going to be a girly blog that is mainly about food or being healthy in general i.e. recipes, restaurants, fitness, natural beauty producs and useful things I learned at my job.

    Here are some ideas I had:

    Sweet and heady
    Sparkles and Smoothies
    Dates and Dots

    Let me know what you like/don’t like and if you have any ideas.

  9. Hi,
    i am just starting a blog and i am so confused about its name. I am gonna be writing poems and articles(prose) about various topics, mostly motivational. My writings have a modern essence. It’s about embracing your own old cultures and accepting the new ones. It’s about a change that i would want to bring to this world. It’s about the progress that my generation can bring if we put our mind and soul to it.
    Any suggestions? It would be a lot of help.

  12. I’m thinking about “Complicatedly Simple” or “Oh My Blog” or something equally cheery and me (I like to be simple, but i’m also kinda indecisive and complex). It’s going to be about music, shows, culture, quotes, fashion, excerpts and, generally, life.
    But I also think that its too cliche. Any ideas?


  14. Hi! Awesome blog names, but I still do need personal names. I actually have a newly created blog now, named “Indefinitely, Me” (it doesn’t sound as good) and I’m thinking about changing it. My blog content goes from lifestyle, beauty, personal. You think you could help me change the name?

    p.s. I also go under a fake name (Donna) on my blog and I don’t know if I still need to that since the URL itself reveals me (20% of my identity tho)
