Tips for cool tumblr names
Choosing cool Tumblr names can seem hard because there's almost too much inspiration in the world to choose from. Don't worry - you can change your Tumblr name at any time. Here are some ideas on how to pick a name that feels right for you...
1. Use your actual name
It's easy - and it helps if you like your name and have an unusual one. You can also repeat some of the letters in your name for fun and extra online privacy and safety, so your Tumblr name could be melalanie or annanna.
2. Is your Tumblr random? Then think of Tumblr names to do with dreams and escaping reality...
If you're going to just post random pics and things on your Tumblr, then make the most of that randomness. Choose a Tumblr name that shows people your blog will be random. One mook named their Tumblr Another Life because they like to post that help them dream and imagine another reality! You could go with this idea of escaping, and you may decide on something like Third Life (because Second Life already exists as a virtual world), or Dreaming in Octarine (if you're a Pratchett fan), or MySecretAttic, or Escaping In My Mind, or Dreaming in Six Dimensions, or They'll Never Find Me Here... anything to do with escaping reality or enjoying dreams or creating a new virtual world would make cool Tumblr names if your blog is going to be random.
3. Make it personal... Cool Tumblr names sometimes give away random facts about you
Think of two random things you like and put them together. You like chocolate and grey days? Make your Tumblr name chocolateandgreydays. It's personal and says something about you... but not so much that people can stalk you.
Have you any quirky habits or unique things about you? If so, choose a random fact about yourself and make that your Tumblr name. You could call your Tumblr something like AllergicToDynamite or NoGlutenPlease or ScaredOfClownsWithGuns. Name your Tumblr blog something that relates to you and defines you in some way.
4. Some Tumblr names show people your interests, passions, goals and aspirations
Think of any passions or aspirations you have in life. Are you vegetarian or vegan? Make your Tumblr name VeganMolly (assuming Molly's your name!) or NeverEatAnythingBiggerThanYourHead. Do you take ballet classes? Your Tumblr name could be MollyEnPointe or anything to do with ballet. If you're a feminist, our list of Feminist Tumblr blogs will certainly help you come up with some cool Tumblr name ideas. Choosing a name that shows your passions in life will help you get more followers and connect with other Tumblrs out there that have the same passions as you.
If there's a style or trend you really like, it could become part of your Tumblr name, like Molly's Burlesque Menagerie or I keep Hogwarts in my Socks.
5. Follow a Tumblr names trend
If in doubt, follow a trend. So there was a Tumblr names trend for F*ckyeah... (obviously there's no asterisk, you spell the world properly, then you put anything you like after the first bit). The good news is you can change your account's name once you want to move on.
6. Make your Tumblr name a motto or quote
If you choose a motto, you'll feel inspired every time you go to look at your Tumblr - and other people will see what's important to you, too! Listen.Love.Live. is an example. You can google for mottos and quotes that inspire you.
7. Making cool Tumblr names from song lyrics
This tried and tested method can't go wrong. Pick a song lyric you really like. It's great for other people because they can then see what sort of music you like, which will help them feel they have something in common with you.
8. Tumblr name ideas are easier if your blog is themed
It's hard not to heart Tumblr. You may have more than one Tumblr. It could be that one is about feminism, one is about old fairy tales, one is about eighties album covers and one is 100% totally about socks, because socks are important. In which case, make sure your Tumblr name matches your theme. That'll make it easier for people to find, recommend and follow...
How to start a tumblr account
Tumblr is a place filled with the fantastic, the educational, the inspirational. Find it.
1. Create your tumblr blog.
First, it’s a good idea to choose what kind of theme your blog is going to have. Post what you like, whether it’s hipstery Instagram photos, health and fitness tips, pictures of animals, whimsical musings or Sherlock (yay). From there you can base your themes, colour schemes and posts around your content. Taking on the Theme Garden can be a bit of a hefty challenge, so try searching the ‘themes’ tags for independent bloggers who make their own themes or just scroll through Tumblr accounts to get inspiration from one you fancy. Put some thought into choosing Tumblr names, but don’t stress it.
2. Find people to follow.
Tumblr can be a bit of a barren wasteland if you’re not following anybody – your dashboard needs to be filled with lots of lovely pictures and pieces of writing which you can take inspiration from. You might, for example, want to follow some of the feminist sites on Tumblr. But again, use the tag search to track down blogs which post things you’re interested in.
3. Prepare for fandoms.
Depending on the type of blog you run, you may or may not come across the renowned fandoms of Tumblr. Wherever you go on Tumblr you’re bound to stumble across at least one of them. My tip to you – do not shun them, EMBRACE them. In the end, they are all of your inner feels stored up and crammed into a teenager’s body.
4. Get involved.
There are some genuinely amazing people on Tumblr; writers, singers, designers, comedians and of course, regular old kids like me and perhaps you. If you find someone who inspires you or whom you simply envy, take a trip to their ask box and get chatting. You never know, they could have a lot in common with you or feel the same way about your blog. Tumblrtrons also are very good at organising meet-ups, which are events in certain areas where people from Tumblr come to meet up with other sleep-deprived folk who like to post pictures of cats in sunglasses.
5) Enjoy whatever happens next.
Don’t take yourself too seriously. Make the most of the opportunity. Ramble about what you’re thinking and post pictures of things that you love or hate. Express yourself.
