If you want to start a new blog, it's a great idea to use a blog name generator like NameBounce. There are over 600 million blogs in the world today, out of 1.7 billion websites! That’s more than the population of every country except China and India.
With so many blogs out there, it’s essential to find a blog name that stands out. Yet you need both a great name and a matching domain name along with it. With over 370 million registered domains, that’s becoming harder by the day.
With NameBounce, you can find an original name for your new blog AND register the matching domain name. You can start by entering one or two keywords in the search box. After that, our blog name generator will uncover hundreds of unique blog name ideas in a few seconds.
The best part about using a blog name generator is that you don’t have to worry about checking each name for domain availability. NameBounce runs an initial check on each blog before showing you the search results.
If you find a creative blog name idea, you can click on it to double-check domain name availability. After you confirm availability, click on the star to save it to your favorites list!
Our blog name generator includes filters to help you eliminate names that aren’t a fit. There are three different filters, including a search term filter, length filter, and syllable count filter.
In this section, we outlined five must-follow tips that are specific to finding a great blog name.

At the top of this page, I mentioned there were over 600 million blogs, but only 350 million registered domain names.
The majority of blogs don’t have a custom domain. Any blogs that don’t have a custom domain will use a blogging platform like Blogspot. The URL for these blogs is usually something like “myblogname.blogspot.com.”
While this is OK, having a custom blog domain adds legitimacy. It's also much easier for your readers to type in.
Since you managed to find our blog name generator, you probably know this! However, I wanted to re-iterate it in case you’re on the fence.
When I tell someone about NameBounce over the phone, it’s much easier to say “NameBounce Dot Com” than “Name DASH Bounce Dot Com.” With a blog, you likely won't be on the phone often. But it's a good idea to avoid confusing hyphens, acronyms, odd spellings, numbers.
The only exception is that you can consider using a number if it’s obvious. Some famous examples include 24HourFitness.com and 99Designs.com. Most people would not think to type out twentyfourhourfitness.com or ninetyninedesigns.com!
Many famous brand names are two words (like Facebook, Salesforce, or YouTube). There are many blogs with two-word names, but many use three- or four-word phrases. Some examples from this list of 31 successful blogs include The Penny Hoarder, Making Sense of Cents, and Pinch of Yum.
NameBounce has a secret feature that helps you find phrases. We originally had it in our primary generator tool. But when we tested it with people, we found that many were entering keywords like “fun exciting innovative.” Since our blog name generator works by substituting one of the keywords with related words, it didn’t return helpful results.
However, the feature is still on the site, just hidden! Click this URL to access it. After the page loads, replace the words "FIRST," "SECOND," and "THIRD" in the URL with your desired phrases. (Note that the search box won’t work, so you’ll have to change it in your browser’s address bar).
For example, let's search “pinch of yum” using this hidden tool and then filter to show the names starting with “pinch.” You’ll see several similar names, including PinchOfChocolate, PinchOfCandy, and PinchOfCookie. (It looks like the search algorithm enjoys desserts!)
With the “PinchOfChocolate” example above, you’d likely have to blog about dessert recipes. Of course, a dessert recipe blog is a great option if you love desserts and don’t want to write about any other topics. But what if you expanded to writing restaurant critiques, vegan recipes, or anything else?
It’s essential to choose a name that fits with your blog's future. Pinch of Yum works for blogging about vegan recipes, breakfast foods, desserts, and anything food-related.
No matter what you choose to blog about, your blog is your platform to show the world who you are. So it’s vital to look at your main motivations behind starting your blog.
I started NameBounce because manually searching for a business name (and blog name) is challenging. I wanted to make the process fun and straightforward. That’s one of the reasons I chose to name this site NameBounce. It's simple (with two syllables), and the word bounce (with the orange colors throughout the site) makes it fun.
After evaluating why you want to start a blog, finding a memorable name will become much easier!
