Finding the right name for your blog is not always easy. Especially finding a name that sticks with your customers. In this post, I will tell you how you can find a unique name for your website.
My blog’s name is Techfrond (Frond is what they call the leaves of a palm tree).
First I had a web design and development website called: Frondend. That is where I based the name Techfrond on. The other name made more sense since a term in development is frontend, change one letter and ta-da!
Since I was a kid I always had an obsession with palm trees. That’s where the frond part comes from. Now that you know my story let’s find your perfect blog name!
What makes the best blog name
A good name has a story. There is not really a secret sauce for the right name. What I personally always like about names is when they have a story or when a word is used in a fun way.

How to find a unique blog name
Ok so you get the idea of finding a blog name, now let’s actually find one. Here I share my (maybe bit weird) process of finding blog names.
1. Find unique words
To come up with the name Frondend (now Techfrond) I used my personal technique I call Childhoodscramble. For this method, you think of something you like or used to like a lot, for example: “Dinosaur”. Now go to Related words and type in your subject.
I used the word dinosaur and when the results came up I instantly noticed the word: “Turtle”. So I will now use this word to continue my search for the perfect blog name.
After you found some words you really like, try to mix them with words that are commonly used in your niche.
In my case that would be travel related words. For example, I could try combining backpack and turtle and end up with turtlepack.com. play a bit with this and you will find a really unique blog name in no-time!
2. Use popular keywords
Keywords in your URL used to be a big deal for SEO and Google loved it. Nowadays it’s not relevant to your rankings anymore but it’s still a great way to come up with beautiful blog names.
Go to Answerthepublic.com and type in words related to your blog niche. In my case, I typed in “travel”. When you scroll all the way down you will find related searches from google.
3. Look what other bloggers in your niche are doing
Are you a fashion blogger, or do you prefer writing about food? There are plenty of examples in every niche!
This does not mean you should copy the name from someone else but instead look clues. If someone in your niche has the name “Green fashion”, you can think of something like color clothes.
4. name generators
Although this is my least favorite option you can still get some really unique names for your blog this way. Here is a list of popular blog name generators:
Note: before you choose a blog name
Before you go all in on your just discovered blog name make sure the URL is available! If the .com domain of your blog is not available it’s better to keep looking for another name.
Now that you have a name you can start your own blog!
