gaming names

If you’re looking for the best, funny, cool gaming names and gamer tags, you’re in the right spot!

Without the right gaming name, are you even really a gamer? But coming up with good gamer names can be tough! Especially when playing tons of different games on our favorite console or computer system.

We have all been there before. You’re sitting at your desk, browsing the internet for a new gaming name and you don’t know where to start! Well, we’ve got just the thing – a list of all types of cool gamer names that will make it easier than ever before.

We’ve got the whole gamut of gamertag options: cool gamer names, clever, weird, funny, scary, for girls, team game names, and more.

There are some absolutely fantastic gaming name ideas and gamertags, so grab one or two if needed.

How to come up with a good gamer name or gamertag?

A lot of people struggle when it comes to creating a cool gaming nickname or gamertag.

But all that’s required from your end is some creativity and inspiration.

We’ll provide a few pointers.

Reflect your personality

Your gamer name is a reflection of your personality. So always base your gamertag on something that you love, or add in some extra creativity with adjectives and pop culture references like “That 70s Guy”

Use Generators

If you’re stuck for gamer name ideas try using a generator for gaming nicknames instead of coming up with an original username yourself (just make sure they are appropriate).

We’ve got a few gaming name generators located in a section toward the end of this article.

Add pop culture references

Add movies or TV shows into the mix if you’d like (for example “Rick and Morty Fan”).

Pop culture is an easy way to get inspired for gaming name ideas. You just might have to put your own spin on the gamertag to ensure that it’s not taken by someone else. (For tips on how to do this, we’ve got some ideas here.)

And remember – gamer names are often based off personality type so make sure whatever you choose reflects exactly who YOU want.

If you’re clever, have your gaming name be clever sounding (puns, play on words). If you’re funny, have a funny gaming name. If you’re weird, think of weird usernames that would suit you 😉

Add adjectives and descriptors

Think of cool words that you like and add them to make a cool gamer name.

For example, if you like the word supernova combine it with some other word that might describe you or something you like to form a cool gamertag. For example, if you’re name is Joe, why not be Joe Supernova 🙂

Keeping it simple could give you one of the best gamertags out there.

Use the same cool gaming usernames that you have elsewhere

Rarely do players come up with their own gamertags so they have been known to recycle words from other people.

You can use the same gaming usernames that you use on other platforms.

So if you and your friends are playing multiplayer mode, you’ll be able to find and play with each other easily no matter where you are.

Use a different language

Feel free to use a non-English word to make your gamertag different and stand out against the crowd.

Combining two languages in one gamertag is another way to go.

It helps in coming up with words that fans have never heard of before and it can make them sound cooler than if you were just using English words alone.

The basic objective here would probably be creating an interesting name that translates well into other cultures or languages, making your gaming username stand out from others.

Using gaming name lists

In addition to these tips, you can find some good, cool, funny, clever gaming name ideas that we’ve compiled below. We even have a section for scary nicknames and a section dedicated solely to gamer names and gamertags for girls

This will provide a fun list that’ll get your creative juices flowing so come up with something great for your gamertag.

There are so many creative and interesting combinations of words that will surely get attention from other gamers.

Above all, just make sure it’s respectful and refrains from using harsh or abusive expressions. They could get you banned from a gaming platform, so just be careful and avoid anything that could constitute hate speech.

Gamertag inspiration

These are just some fun usernames to give you inspiration.

But by the time this is published, many of these will be taken! When coming up with your own cool gamertag make sure that nobody else is using it too.

Of course, feel free to use something directly from the list if it is open and available. Also give considerations to whether the nickname is available on other platforms if you’re trying to be uniform across all of them.

Does your game name sound good?

Also consider how it sounds. It should be aesthetically pleasing and not something that could be easily made fun of for people to annoy you.

For example, if your name is BS69, there are multiple ways people can give you a hard time.

What if your gamertag is taken?

What if your dream gamertag is taken?

It’s an unfortunate fact that not everyone can have something original. A lot of us like to get inspiration from other people.

The best way around this problem would be just to experiment even further with yours by swapping letters and numbers together while dropping any symbols necessary until something sticks.

Even consider foreign languages or spelling things backwards, in addition to the standard addition of extra letters, numbers, or symbols. Even consider flipping numbers or adding a backwards symbol if possible.

For example:

Gamertag: Pengu1n

Alternative gamertag: Eengu1n

Protect Your Gamertag from Scammers

You should take measures to protect your gamertag from scammers.

The market value of gamertags can increase through usage by high-level players. They are an online property, and should be treated as something of value accordingly.

Keep your personal info safe

Protect your personal information. Watch out for inadvertently revealing anything about yourself that could give hackers a way to access and take control over your account.

Especially the basics:

  • Your name – first, last, or both
  • Your age – many add the last two digits of the year they were born; for example, adding 98 at the end of your tag most likely indicates you were born in 1998
  • Where you are from – e.g., city or country

You should be careful about who you share info with when playing. Whether it’s through a mic, chat, or private message – especially if that person just met you and starts asking personal questions.

Sharing basics about your name, age, or location can give unscrupulous actors clues over what your password could be or answers to your secret question(s).

Selling your gaming name / gamertag

Selling your gamertag should be a fun experience. But if you ever do decide to sell it, make sure that the person buying has good intentions and isn’t a scammer.

And it’s not necessarily just their gamertags that drive up value, but what comes along too.

Gamers with good stats on particular games, such as any of the Modern Warfare franchises, should be particularly careful. Scammers are known to target the best gamertag names as these types of accounts can be sold for a high price on black market forums.

Selling your gamertag might seem like a tempting idea, but selling gamertags can get you banned from playing online. It’s not the best option when there are other ways to use them or just consider keeping yours for now.

And who knows? You may want it back again someday.
