In this article, we shed light on some of the best blog name generators out there and what you can expect from each one.

  1. Wordoid – our pick
  2. NameBoy – runner up

What Makes a Personal Blog Name?

When launching a new blog, or any other type of website for that matter, choosing a short and memorable name for your site is more important than it seems.

For starters, the name you give to your personal blog will help shape its identity.

And seeing as the blogging world is highly saturated nowadays, having a unique and credible identity is crucial!

The name you give to your blog should provide readers with a crystal clear idea of what the blog is all about.

For instance, if you’re starting a fashion blog, the word ‘fashion’ or a close synonym should be part of the blog’s name.

Simplifying for Ease of Naming

If we think of it in terms of keywords, the main keyword that encompasses what your blog is all about must be part of the blog’s name.

In the previous example, the main keyword is ‘fashion.’

Another thing you should be mindful of when choosing a name for your blog is length and uniqueness.

It’s important that you pick a name that’s short, memorable, and easy to pronounce so that it sticks in the heads of your target audience.

Remaining Unique

Additionally, you should choose a name that’s unique so that it sets your blog apart from your competitors and gives it its own identity.

You should avoid generic names if you’re looking to stand out.

You should also consider whether or not the name you pick for your personal blog will remain suitable as your site grows.

This is especially the case if you’re starting a blog that tackles a very specific part of a niche.

For example, let’s say you’re starting a blog about fishing rods.

At some point, you might find yourself wanting to talk about other fishing equipment, like fishing boats maybe.

In this example, instead of going for a name that only hints at fishing rods, it would be better to go for a name that encompasses the activity of fishing in its entirety.

Why Use a Blog Name Generator?

Instead of taking all of the factors mentioned in the previous section into consideration while trying to come up with a perfect blog name, a blog name generator does all of the hard work for you.

With a blog name generator, you’re guaranteed to have a name that will drive traffic to your website and improve its rankings.

To add, it will help you build your personal brand and online identity so that you can stand out from your competitors.

Using a blog name generator is as simple as can be.

All you have to do is type in the main keyword on which your blog is based, and the tool will automatically provide you with a list of catchy and creative blog names that you can pick from.

The 9 Best Blog Name Generators in 2023

Now that you know the importance of catchy blog names, let’s take a look at some of the best domain name generators that you can use.

1. Wordoid

When it comes to coming up with brandable blog name ideas that follow phonetic rules, Wordoid is one of the best options available.

It has an intuitive, easy-to-use interface and a unique blog naming process.

The domain names—referred to as wordoids—that this generator tool can come up with are quite creative and pronounceable.

You won’t necessarily find them in the dictionary, but they’ll sound real!

Using Wordoid is incredibly easy.

You simply type in your primary topic or keyword and set the following parameters based on your preference:

  • Language: You can choose between English, Italian, Spanish, German, and French.
  • Quality: This is a parameter that determines how natural the generated wordoids will look.
    The higher the quality, the more natural the generated wordoids will be.
  • Pattern: This parameter enables you to set a specific word as a fragment to be placed at the beginning, middle, or end of the domain name.
  • Length: As you’ve probably guessed, this parameter enables you to set a maximum character count for your domain name.
    We recommend 5-10 letters if you want your domain name to be memorable.

What’s so cool about Wordoid is that it allows you to filter out wordoids that don’t have an available .com domain with a simple click.

This is guaranteed to save you a lot of time and effort. Best of all, Wordoid’s basic features are completely free!

2. NameBoy

NameBoy claims to be the oldest blog name generator on the market.

While this is arguable, for sure we can say that’s one of the most popular and effective out there.

NameBoy can generate a lot of catchy and creative blog names in just a few seconds.

All you have to do is type in one or two keywords, and it will automatically generate a host of options to choose from.

One of the things we like about NameBoy is that it combines random and common words with synonyms, prefixes, and suffixes to provide users with unique and catchy suggestions.

Another thing we like about this tool is that it includes the terms you provide in all of its suggestions.

This makes it perfect for bloggers who want to have unaltered keywords in their blog names.

After choosing a name for your block, you’ll see a “View Details” button.

If you click that button, you’ll be redirected to Bluehost, which is one of the most popular hosting services available.

With Bluehost, you get to enjoy a free domain name, free SSL, and 60% off on WordPress hosting.

So, if you’re starting a WordPress blog, you should definitely check out Bluehost.

3. DomainWheel

DomainWheel is another popular domain name generator that’s easy to use.

It stands out from most other blog name generators by only offering ideas with domain name availability.

In other words, DomainWheel won’t show you blog name ideas that are already taken.

The way DomainWheel works is very simple.

All you have to do is enter a keyword of choice.

Ideally, you should aim for a keyword that encompasses what your blog is all about.

You can also add a sequence of 2-3 words for more results.

After clicking the “Search Domain” button, three categories of results will be generated.

The first category of results is domain-based, revealing .com, .org, and .net domains.

The second category reveals a range of blog name ideas that are related to the keyword you entered without actually using that keyword.  

The third category is divided into three types of suggestions:

  • Names with rhyming keywords
  • Names that sound like the main keyword
  • Random name suggestions

You’ll notice that some of DomainWheel’s names are marked in green with a price.

If you click on one of those names, you’ll be redirected to a registrar through which you can buy that name.  

4. Namify

Even though Namify is more geared towards finding business names, you can still use it to find some unique and catchy domain names for your new blog.

Compared to most other blog name generators, Namify is remarkably creative with its suggestions.

What we like the most about it is that its suggestions are short and memorable.

To get the best results with this free domain name generator, we recommend entering a minimum of two keywords.

One keyword isn’t going to cut it with this tool.

Another cool thing about Namify is that it enables you to choose a category that describes your blog niche.

This feature helps narrow things down so that you’re presented with the most suitable suggestions.

To give you an example, if you’re looking to start a fashion blog, you should choose the “Clothing” category to help you narrow down the best domain names for your personal brand or blog.

When you click on a suggestion, Namify will reveal whether or not it has .com domain name availability.

If it doesn’t, the tool will display other domain extensions that you can pick from.

In addition to all of these features, Namify informs you about the domain name’s social media availability.

On top of that, it will provide you with some cool logo suggestions.

5. Zyro Business Name Generator

Zyro isn’t strictly a domain name generator; it’s a full-fledged website builder with a business name generation service that you can use for free.

Zyro Business Name Generator is powered by an AI algorithm, so you can expect some great blog name suggestions from it.

You simply enter one or more keywords that represent what your blog is all about and press the “Generate Name” button.

This intelligent name generator tool will then display a list of unique and catchy blog name ideas that you can use.

Note that some suggestions may not sound all that appealing, but you’ll definitely find a host of ideas that you’ll like.

It’s also worth noting that Zyro is a pretty cool website builder.

It implements a drag-and-drop approach to building websites, which makes it beginner-friendly and easy to use.

You don’t need to write a single line of code to build yourself a website with Zyro.

Now, we wouldn’t say it’s as powerful as WordPress, but it’s definitely worth checking out if you champion ease of use.

6. Looka

Like Zyro, Looka isn’t strictly a domain name generator. It’s actually a service that specializes in web design.

Though, like Zyro, Looka has its own business name generator that you ought to check out.

Looka’s blog name generator tool is packed with awesome features.

For starters, when you type in some keywords for domain name generation, you get to choose from categories such as “elegant” and “edgy.”

You pretty much get to choose the vibe that you want the domain name to convey!

When you click on a domain name, a sidebar will appear, providing you with an audio clip of how to pronounce the name you’ve clicked on, some cool logo ideas and visuals, and social media handle suggestions.

On top of that, Looka will provide you with alternative blog name ideas related to the name you’ve clicked on.

We just love how this domain name generator pushes the envelope with features you’d be hard-pressed to find in alternative tools.

7. Panabee

Next on our list of the best blog name generators is none other than Panabee, which happens to be one of the most popular options on the list, thanks to its intuitive interface and top-notch suggestions.

With Panabee, you can generate more than just blog name ideas; you can generate app names, business name ideas (like an eCommerce store), and more.

It’s super easy to use. All you have to do is type in two or more keywords and click the “Search” button.

The way Panabee works is simple.

It basically merges the keywords you enter together, eliminates or doubles a few letters, and swaps some words with synonyms.

Panabee also has the option to choose the domain extensions you want.

Options include .com, .us, .uk, .co, .app, .ai, .cloud, and more.

You can also choose a custom domain extension.

The blue heart underneath a generated blog title indicates that it’s available in the domain extension you’ve chosen.

If it’s unavailable, you’ll be presented with some alternatives by clicking the “See options” button.

8. Lean Domain Search

If you’re looking for a straightforward and free domain name generator that has no bells and whistles, Lean Domain Search is right up your alley.

This is a basic blog name generator that can come with an incredible number of suggestions in a matter of seconds.

In addition, it focuses only on suggestions with a .com domain extension.

Other domain extensions are neglected.

Lead Domain Search is just as easy to use as all of the above-listed options.

You simply enter a primary keyword (blog topic) and search.

In a split second, you’ll be presented with a long list of options to choose from.

The generated names can be sorted based on several metrics, including length, alphabetic order, and popularity.

On top of that, you can filter the suggestions so that you only see the ones that start or end with the keyword you entered.

One thing we don’t like about Lean Domain Search, though, is that most of its suggestions are pretty lengthy, which, as we established earlier, isn’t one of the characteristics of a good blog name.

9. is the place to go for domain registration.

It’s also the place to go if you’re looking for some domain name suggestions!

However, it’s on the bottom of our list because it’s pretty basic and doesn’t have as many features as its competition.

To use for blog name generation, just type in a domain name that you have in mind.

If it’s not available, will automatically suggest some alternatives that you can pick from.

For instance, if you’re starting a blog about the vegan lifestyle, simply type in, which surely won’t be available, and will start suggesting some cool alternatives.

Granted, it’s a registrar and not a dedicated blog name generator, but it does generate blog names that are unique, catchy, and memorable.

Final Thoughts

There are several blog name generators out there that you can use, but we assure you that the ones listed in this post are the best of the bunch.

We recommend trying more than one blog name generator.

They all generate different suggestions, so you should dedicate a good deal of time to trying a few of them out until you find a name that you like.

Remember to type in keywords that encompass your blog’s niche as much as possible.

The more niche-related the keywords are, the better the suggestions will be.
