How To Choose a Good Tumblr Name

So you’ve been thinking of a Good Tumblr Name but none seems to fit what your new blog will be all about?.

Below we’ll share some techniques that might help you come up with a good tumblr url.

But before you start reading, choosing the a right tumblr name for your blog is a good idea, since it could very well mean the difference between getting reblogged a lot more, or helping other users know what your blog is all about.

So, What’s a Good Tumblr Names After All?

  • Must Include Words Related To Your Main Topic: For instance, if you want to create a Hunger Games Tumblr, not only the word “Hunger Games” applies, but very relevant words from that same universe are sometimes much better, since most of these “niche” blogs will indeed be using the main title word. Panem, the nation where the novel/movie takes place could fit perfectly and make your tumblr name unique and original. These words also help Google identify your Tumblelog and bring you targeted visitors.
  • The Other Side of The Coin: Some niches can even get narrower indeed. If you thought that you simply want animated gifs, then combining it with other words makes it much easier, and Tumblr users will identify your blog a lot better. Besides you can broaden your audience, since some people are just looking for Animated Gifs (or picture quotes, funny pictures movie news, etc). By combining two topics, your good tumblr names duplicate your chances of gaining followers.
  • Short or Long: There are many examples of good tumblr urls that are fairly long, but bear in mind that these can be harder to find in a Google search if somehow you lose track of them in your Tumblr dashboard.
  • Funny Phrases as URLS: Add a third element to the first two mentioned in our checklist. If you manage to create a funny phrase by combining topic-related words, you have the winning formular. (e.g. and

    i noticed that a lot of urls depend on the type. like a bunch of tropical blogs are something like “tropical-kindgom” or have something to do with colors, summer, or the beach.

    quality blogs are typically adjectives with numbers or dashs in them, and often are sex related as well. like sextember, 5irens, or solst-ice.

    hipsters usually involve nuttella, princesses, or whores.

    Personally I’ve found a very important thing to do is to pick a username without a hyphen. Why? Because words with hyphen can’t be searched for, so you cannot search for posts tagged with your username!

    Hi ! I’m new to tumblr and I can’t find a single username that hasn’t already been taken. I’ve come up with some of the most creative users, but they’re all taken! And them I add a ton of numbers and stuff but it still says “this user already exists”.
    So if you have any suggestions, please tell !

    I mainly want my blog to be just about me, and my personality.
    I’m a little random but I want it to have my name in my URL.
