The joy of random usernames!

User accounts are ubiquitous these days - most of us have many, many user accounts spread across a lot of different sites. Next time you need to sign up, why not try for something other than jonno234 or bill533?

Thinking of something original and fun can sometimes take a fair amount of thinking and imagination. Look no more! Use this free tool to generate a list of random usernames, by combining words from a range of different categories.

I think the best combinations of usernames are generated when you have something like "emotions" or "adjectives" for the first category, and then pretty much any other category after that... Some of the combinations really make you laugh out loud.

How to generate a list of random usernames

The usernames are made up of two words joined together, each picked from one of the category lists above. Select a category, and click on the "get usernames" button.

You'll notice lot of these random usernames probably have too many characters to be of much use to you. If that's the case, I think they're a lot of fun anyway, as it's interesting to see what results you get when combining random words together, in a strange and seemingly random fashion.

Shiny font version

I have set a page using google fonts, which helps generate some "pretty" versions of the usernames, as using Google Fonts allows the use of some fun and funky looking fonts.

Some of the combinations look great, when combined with some random colours.

Use Your Own Words

I love playing about with these combinations as I like the silly suggestions that are created. However, if you want to include a word of your own in the username suggestions you could try this username generator. You can enter a word of your choice, and then combine it with other random words to see what you end up with. It also allows you to control how many characters long the results are...

Experiments

If you're not content to simply stare at long, stark lists of usernames, how about looking at the experiments section. As well as getting pages with black backgrounds, there are others with trendy background patterns that wouldn't look out of place in the lifestyle section of a sunday newspaper, there's a username circle, and other things like a page of spoonerisms as usernames and usernames as typography experiments.

Oooh, and not forgetting, something nice and plain.

Aaah, and last, but not least, a colourful circle which reminds me of something people make in real life, out of cotton.
