How To Make A Good Username That Will Not Make You Regret Being Born

TwilightKitsune
Whatsup guys, this is TwilightKitsune here. Sorry for my long hiatus. Tenth grade is a nightmare. Well, actually, it’s a miracle since I’m a new class where nobody knows me, and I left some great first impressions, and now I have lots of friends. But still, I prefer Toptens users.

By the way, before I begin, just wanna say happy belated birthday to MLPFan, Puga and DapperPickle. While I was away I missed your birthdays L. Sowwy.

THIS POST WAS MADE ON MY PERSONAL OPINIONS AND IS NOT MEANT TO OFFEND ANYONE. IF YOU WERE OFFENDED, I APOLOGIZE.

Remember back when you were a kid searching up stuff like ‘barbie sucks lolol’ and ‘I hate homwurk and vegetables’ and then you suddenly stumbled on a mysterious site run by retards? You were taken aback at it but made an account. You named your account ‘Ben10fan211’.

After spending some months on the site, you get addicted. You’re a big part of the community. Many know your name and you’ve made so many friends here who are equally as hilarious as you. You have your own personal wiki. Life is great here.

Come 2016.

Oh boy, you can’t wait for the new gen, Gen-17, to show up! You sure are curious to see what they can do!
You suddenly receive a message.

*GASP* IT’S FROM A GEN 17 USER

‘Lol, you’re name is Ben10fan211? So uncreative and the new show sucks lololol’

Ben10fan211 regrets his birth.

This is the dilemma many users face today. I hear loads of users saying they hate their usernames. So I have, with the knowledge and experience of nothing, assembled a guide on:

How To Make A Good Username That Will Not Make You Regret Being Born

Step 1: Don’t use the name of a franchise

I see this all the time, e.g. ‘Animefan’, ‘HarryPotter56’, ‘YourLieInAprilLover’. Dude, it’s okay that you like something, but you don’t have to put it into your username. It just sounds lazy and sloppy. And when other users see you, they’ll define you by it

“Hey, I heard that one user who likes Pokemon made a new list”

“Hi Pokemon, will you follow me?”

“The pokemon guy has such a cool profile pic”

And then it gets annoying. You want to be known for who you are, not what you like. So whatever you do, don’t use the name of a franchise.

Step 2: Don’t use your real name

You see this all the time on other sites, but please, pay heed to it. Using your own name shows lack of creativity. Though combining it with other words sounds cool (e.g. Martinglez, EpicJake) it’s better if you pick something else as a username.

Step 3: Don’t use internet words like ‘kawaii’ or ‘yolo’

Every time I see these usernames I cringe. Using these in usernames make you sound like a sixth grader spending his first day on the internet. Imagine if you wanna make a joint account with a user, but that means your username will have to be something along the lines of ‘Black-Crystal-I-Call-Shotgun’. Seriously, was ICallShotgun waiting in a McDonald’s line when he made his account or something. If you play Minecraft, and I bet you do, you see these EVERYWHERE. It makes you roll your eyes so hard they’ll fall out of your head. Also, don’t add ‘YT’ or ‘#’ in it either.

Step 4: Don’t abuse caps lock

WHEN YOU TYPE OUT A USERNAME IN WHOLE CAPS LOCK ITS ANNOYING. ARE YOU SCREAMING OR SOMETHING? AND EVERY TIME I SEE YOUR COMMENT ON A LIST OR POST WITH YOUR USERNAME RIGHT NEXT TO IT I FEEL LIKE YOU WERE SCREAMING WHEN YOU WROTE IT. NOT TO SOUND LIKE A GRAMMER NAZI OR ANYTHING BUT REMEMBER, CAPS LOCK IS TO BE USED ONLY AT CERTAIN TIMES.

Step 5: Combine words

It would look awesome if you combined random words and made it your username, for example:
Knightmare
Cinnamint
Chocolatte
Angelake
SwissRollin
Glasword

See what I mean? Those usernames sound classy and fun at the same time. Many users do this thing with band names. But remember, make sure the words are related to each other or you’ll end up looking like an idiot.

Step 6: Don’t use memes

I love memes as much as the next person, but using them in a username is a bad idea. Memes die out at some point. Your username will be permanent but memes can only stay for so long.

Okay *stretches arms* I’m done here. Some honorable mentions though –

· Make it a parody of something e.g. ‘MyLittlePhony’
· Make it funny
· Using sucks is okay, but make sure its something you personally hate with a fiery passion, not something everybody generally hates like ‘CancerSucks’ or ‘JustinBeiberSucks’
· Don’t use numbers
· Do not use a username you already know someone else has. There’s a user that was also called Turkeyasylum which confuses me with the other Turkeyasylum
· Some of my favourite usernames on this site are Therandom, Celestius, PeachyBlast, LightningBlade, jerk4life and Jedi_OnS

I'm gen 17 I joined at December last year - visitor

You are gen 18 - Therandom

Ohh - visitor

Step 7: Don't add unnecessary numbers. - visitor

Yeah - TwilightKitsune

Forgot about that step. >:( - Skullkid755

Honestly I have no idea what I was thinking when coming up with my username. Now I don't know how I feel about it - Randomator

Your one is cool - TwilightKitsune

I don't know - Randomator

Dammit, should've named myself YOLOGROJBANDBENNYCENA69



so much better than ProPanda. - ProPanda

Yeah - TwilightKitsune

I actually still like my username the most. The mispelling at the end is intentional and actually symbolic - NuMetalManiak

I love it too - TwilightKitsune

I mean my username has been my handle since like the days of the PS3. So I've long not cared what my username is really. It's klunky and odd but at least it says something about I guess. - cjWriter1997

I think it suits you - TwilightKitsune

Ha, jokes on you. I'd STILL regret being born if I had a good username! - BlarchBlaces

Dayyum I failed - TwilightKitsune

I wish we could change usernames on here. I literally used a Minecraft username I made in 2013 as my social media name. - Powerfulgirl10

My username is literally my name with my favorite number heh - Phillip873

I based my user name on Honey Nut Cheerios... - HoneyClover

Well your username reminded me of the anime Hachimitsu to Clover which means Honey and Clover. - RoseRedFlower

Wonkey: I feel like there was no hope for my username. - PandaDude98

When I was making a Playstation Network account back in 2007, my dad named it my real name followed by "123". It's too late to change it but I do try covering it up with something better (GreaserWolf maybe).
Also, that kawaii rule is important - People who have obsessions with Japan to the point of it being excruciating are annoying. - Swellow

I sometimes just use Eileen though, because I can't come up with a decent username, MetalObsessed was bad. - visitor

Can we used some chemical name like Neon, Xenon, Cobalt, etc? - visitor

I should've named myself SMOKWEED420DANKMLG696969 instead of AlphaQ What is RONG WIT me? - DankGodX

I couldn't think of a username lol. in my opinion _EpicJack_ is kinda cringy.

Step 666:
xXJackXx
No. - visitor

This is a really good post. I kind of like my username even thought I copied it from a picture. - visitor

My other account has the username 'Animefan12' as dumb 12 year old me was too busy being uncreative. If I'd have to make a username now, I'd go with 'HolyBoiledCabbages' or something - styLIShT

Animefan12? I remember that guy. Uncreative username, but he was awesome. - TwilightKitsune

Is my name any good? - Cyri

Does my username is good to you? - yamionthetrap
