Choosing a name for your blog can seem like one of the most crucial ingredients for your blog’s success, but the truth is: it’s just a name.

Some blog name ideas are more clever or memorable than others, but the bottom line is that choosing a name shouldn’t take more than a few brainstorming sessions.

If you’re looking to start and grow your blog, then consider quickly choosing your blog’s name a small victory – don’t get caught up in waiting days and weeks and months for the perfect moniker.

Then you can move on to researching the types of blogs that make money, or learning what a lifestyle blog is, for instance.

Instead, choose something you like and start getting to work!

And if you need help starting from scratch, here’s a list of first blog post ideas.

For some extra motivation, check out this list of 100 blog income reports from all different blog niches.

Here’s a guide to choosing your blog name, some important ideas to consider and a list of 200 actual blog names you can use to spark your own ideas.

How to Choose Your Blog Name

Here’s what I tell anyone looking to start a blog: your name doesn’t matter as much as you think it does.

Of course, you want something that reflects your creative goals and what you want to express in your blog, but it also shouldn’t be something you spend hours and hours on.

That time is much better invested in writing really good, useful content for your readers.

So my main piece of advice is to decide on a name sooner than later, commit to it and move on to building your blog.

That said, here are a few things to keep in mind that’ll make it easier to come up with a great blog name.

Keep it Short and Simple

Short and simple domain names are easier to remember, and less can go wrong if someone’s looking to get back to your site.

The last few weeks I’ve gone through spreadsheets of thousands of blog names, and a majority of them are in the 3 – 5 word range.

If you go shorter than 3 words, there’s a good chance that domain isn’t available, and if you go longer than 5 words, you risk having a name that’s too long for visitors to quickly recall.

Keep it Relevant

My favorite blog names have a unique twist, but also make it clear what the blog is about.

Some blog names – something like “Annie’s Daily Thoughts” – are so generic that it’s difficult to know what the blog might be about.

But something like “Chelsea’s Messy Apron” is probably about food, and something like “Have Baby Will Travel” is likely about traveling with kids.

If you can build the theme or niche of your blog into your name, that’s a great way to express your site’s focus early and often.

If you need help choosing a topic, here are a few blog niches that work well for parents.

Have Room to Grow

Try to pick a name you can grow into over time.

If you recently had a baby and want to start a baby blog, that’s awesome, but consider what that blog will look like in three or five years, when your baby is now a toddler or preschooler.

You wouldn’t want to pick a name just about newborns when you’ll be blogging about your kid growing up over time.

For the same reason, you don’t want to pick a name that limits what you can write about.

If you start a blog about things to do with kids in your city, you could name it something like “Kid-Friendly Phoenix.”

But if you live in a small town, you may want to consider a more broad name that will allow you to expand into other locations or niches later on.

Think about what you’d love to have your blog look like in a year, in three years and five years.

What domain name can you envision working well at each stage?

Make Sure it’s Available

One of the limiting factors of blog names is whether or not the domain is available (.com especially).

Personally, when choosing names I don’t consider this right away, but instead I’ll make a list of possible names, then run them through Godaddy to see what’s available.

But there are tools like Nameboy or DomainWheel where you can check name ideas and domain availability at the same time.

You can also find free domain name generators that lead directly to Bluehost or Godaddy, where you can register your domain for cheap.

6 Blog Name Templates & Themes

After digging through thousands of blogs, names and ideas, I found a handful of “templates” or themes that bloggers consistently use to come up with names.

You don’t have to use these templates, of course, but when you see what other bloggers use to name their sites, it may help you generate ideas of your own.

1. The Pun or Popular Phrase

Naming a blog after a pun or popular phrase is as old as blogging itself.

It’s a great way to create something memorable that will stick, especially if it’s a unique twist on a common saying.

Examples: Buns in My Oven; Show Me the Yummy; Yellow Bliss Road; Build a Better Mouse Trip; Mommy Poppins.

2. The Alliteration

Alliteration is the “occurrence of the same letter or sound” in the same group of words.

Because blog names are usually short and sweet, alliteration is an easy way to make your name flow better without taking up much space.

Examples: Damn Delicious; Handle the Heat; Life in the Lofthouse; Trips with Tykes; A Passion and a Passport.

3. The Straightforward Name

Let’s all admit blog names can be overly clever.

If you’re in the mood for something straightforward, there’s nothing wrong with using something plain, descriptive or based on your own name.

Many bloggers decide to use their first, full or family name as their brand, and others go with a “keyword” approach that makes it clear what their blog is about.

Not having a cutesy name won’t hurt your blog brand, and in fact, some readers may appreciate a straightforward name instead of something they don’t understand.

Clarity goes a long way sometimes.

Examples: La Jolla Mom; New York Metro Parents; The Mandagies; DIY Projects for Teens.

4. The Combined Interests

One of the best things you can do as a blogger is stick to a well-defined niche, such as food, travel or fashion.

To make your blog even more specific and geared toward an audience, you can combine interests to come up with something that’s extra niched down.

Examples: Passports and Preemies is about solo traveling and nursing; Budget Savvy Bride is a budgeting blog focused on weddings.

5. The Contrast

One great way to make a memorable blog name is to have contrasting images or concepts.

For example, if you’re starting a food blog, readers might expect something related to your kitchen, recipes, baked goods, etc.

But by throwing in a contrasting image, word or concept, you can throw readers for a loop and create a fun and interesting juxtaposition.

If readers are expecting something wholesome and cute, go the other way with something edgy or bold.

The contrast created can make it easy for visitors to remember your blog later on.

Examples: The Recipe Rebel; Reluctant Entertainer; Happy Hooligans; To Love, Honor and Vacuum.

6. The Themed Name

If you’re starting a blog on a specific place, brand or location, you can find a way to incorporate that into your blog name.

Examples: The Happiest Blog on Earth is about visiting Disneyland; Goldwill Digger is about finding great fashion pieces specifically at Goodwill.

Now that you’ve seen some of the most common name templates, themes and ideas bloggers are using, here’s a list of 200 actual mom blog names categorized by niche:

  • food
  • travel and outdoor
  • personal finance
  • DIY and home improvement
  • parenting and lifestyle

Some of these overlap, and the last category’s kind of a catchall, but you get the idea.

And although these are actual, live blogs and you can’t take their names, you can use this list to generate ideas based on words, phrases, niches and themes you see in this list.

Good luck!
