Looking for a cool screen name? Nobody wants a boring handle of course, especially when it comes to your personal online identity. The name you choose to associate yourself with on the Web should be unique and maybe say a thing or two about who you are, wouldn’t you say so?
So, what does it take to find the right screen name? Not much really. Simply leave all the thinking to a generator and you’re golden.
Here’s four useful ones to help you come up with some cool screen names.
SpinXO is probably one of the best name generators out there. If you’re looking for a screen name with a little bit of your own personal touch to it, this is the place to go.
First, some information about yourself is needed for the generator to come up with some good suggestions. Start out by typing in your name or nickname into the first text entry box. It’ll then ask you what you are like, so put in some of your characteristics. Next, type in your hobbies and things you like, followed by any words or numbers that are important to you.
Filling out all of the fields isn’t required. It just depends on how personal you want the screen names it generates to be. Once you have set all the details, simply hit the “Spin!” button and the list of 90 or so screen names it generated will be displayed below.
Feel free to now pick a screen name that you like or edit the information to generate a new list of cool screen names to choose from.
