Seriously, I wanted to create an account on a forum, but struggled to find any usernames that I like. I'm the type of guy that wants his username to be unique, to sound good when you pronounce it and to look good when you type it. I came up to my name, different words that I like, but couldn't find any combinations that I like.

And don't tell me about Username Generator, because it's sh*t.

Erm... I don't think there's a formulaic, sure way of answering your question. Imagination and creativity is key. I picked my username a long time ago, nearly 10 years ago. It's not very imaginative or creative and I'd prefer a new one but it relates to me and what I liked 10 years ago. 

 

One username I always liked is:

Björn Tobi Wilde

 

To pick a unique name, pick something unique like a famous persons something. Like Tiger Woods Underpants or Santa Claus's Crack Pipe. I always find those type of usernames memorable.

I'm one for single-worded or one-syllable usernames, no numbers or any of that. I think it's easier for people to remember, and it's nice to look at. Mine is just a chunk of my last name. You could always try that if you have some sort of interesting surname. 

 

You could also google random words or look at synonyms for some of your favorite nouns or adjectives or whatever. Hell, even make up a sound and turn it into a name if you want. Just combine things until it works.

 

I know you said no generators, but this one is too lovely to pass up:

Sometimes the most mundane of tasks can cause certain people difficulty. Maybe just sit down with a cup of coffee and have a good think about it until something comes to mind.

 

Thank god breathing is automatic.

My unicorn name is:
Dandelion Snowy Stallion
Dandelion is a little bit crazy. 
He is as white as the driven snow, 
and he dances on the spindrift as the tides change.

 

Use it, jln. Use it wisely.

Everyone knows his history so he wants a fresh start. (That's what he said in another thread at least)

If he changed his avatar I doubt anyone would even notice. That's why I change mine constantly, so no one remembers the stupid sh*t I post.

Ok, so for example, I like the username of "Fishbulb", but I can't use it because someone else created it and used it on the same community (saying this because I want to use an unique nickname all over the boards that I am going to register). So, as I can't use Fishbulb, I think I shall remove the "Fish" thing from it, as "bulb" sounds funnier to me and then add an prefix that would fit this word. But I am out of ideas.

 

Nevertheless, I found some chemical names quite nice to use as nicknames, for example LSD, used as "Elesdee". It's quite unique I might say and it's also something that I am interested in (always wanted to try LSD)

So if you got a list of chemical solutions/whatever that might sound cool, post them here.

Same here, although originally it was "ManDog", which I loved but I prefer my name more.

Why not C17H21NO4? If you're going for the drug approach.

how about "ÉminenceGrise"? That is a pretty cool nickname, if I ever get banned here for whatever reason I might come back with it.

Don't worry man, once you start posting on a forum, people will soon realise you're not cool.

It's too long, too many capitals, and it's a nerdy nickname idk why.

 

Your second nickname is cooler though. I'm often tended to use one single word as my nickname. Also a list of my past nicknames:

- Vogue

- Cataclysm

- Noirellicious

- Ink

- YoungFresh

- Dirtyvation

- hella_sick

- Karioka

- Grempta (this one was really cool), took Grem from Gremlin and added "pta" from Skepta. Lol.

 

You see, it's more like a suffixed word or something like that. Something "dope" and easy to use.

Well I liked them tbh. Especially the Ink one was my favorite. Too bad I spoiled my reputation after I have f*cked up several times lol.

 

@Nate - Well it's supposed to be "swaggy" lol.

How about "BigDave"? That's who I call whenever I need someone with a British accent to come "sort" someone out.
