What Makes a Great Snapchat Name
A great Snapchat name isn’t just your name it’s how your friends will find you. So it needs to be memorable, easy to type and pass on. It’s also impossible to change your username unless you want to start from scratch. So make sure you’re happy by following these simple rules…
Make it About You
Remember your username can be different to your real name. This means your username can be pretty much whatever you want unless you want to be famous (And known by your real name) that is. Think about your personality, interests, music tastes and hobbies and add related words into the mix.
HINT: The topic dropdowns found under “Select Your Prefix” or “Select Your Suffix” within the generators can help you with this.
Keep it Short
Snapchat usernames must be 3-15 characters long, no spaces and appear in lowercase in the app. In any case, you want your name to be as short and easy as possible, no one wants to read more than they have too.
HINT: To find shorter names there are short word lists within the “Select Your Prefix” or “Select Your Suffix” dropdowns. For example, check out the “Popular 2 Letter Words” and “Popular 3 Letter Words” topics.
Make it Unique
Sure your username will have to be unique, but that doesn’t mean shoehorning numbers in to make it work. Unique should also mean giving your name a bit of personality think individual and personal not general and normal.
Make it Memorable
Both the Random or Smart Username Generators allow you to select a starting point letter. This is great if you want a name that’s super memorable, think Marilyn Manson, “Burt’s Bees” and “Tater Tots”. Names like this are alliterative and are very easy to remember.
