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.

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.


Varied and Interesting Options

Check Availability

You can click on a username and check if it's available across a number of social media websites such as Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube etc.

Favourites

Additionally, you can click a heart next to a username to add it to your favourites - so you can build up a collection and save them later on, or go to the favourites page and check their availability from there.

If you don't like the hearts getting in the way of the list of results, click the 'toggle' button to hide the hearts.

Sort

Click on the sort button to display the results list in a model window, and then sort them alphabetically, or by length.

Bells and whistles

If you click on the Show Bells and Whistles option, there are a load of useful options, such as:

  • Nice Font
    • Display the username with a nice font on a pretty background colour
  • Plural 1st / 2nd Word
    • Stick an `s` on the end of the first or second component word of the username
  • Reverse
    • Reverse the words in the username so that cartnose becomes traceson
  • Spoonerise
    • Spoonerisms - what fun! If you choose this option, then cartnose becomes nartcose
  • Filter Text
    • Include text you want your username results to include, and once you type in something, select if that should appear anywhere in the word, or at the start or end...

Passphrase Generator

I've used the same word list I used for the username generators to make a passphrase generator. If you want a memorable passphrase / password, give it a try. There's some background on the page about the process too.
