Discord name ideas

Trying to impress your friends with a cool discord name? Don't worry, we've got you covered.

If you’re here then you probably know or have used Discord before. If for some reason you haven’t however, it’s an app for gaming in which you and a group of your friends can chat to each other whilst gaming.

It’s one of the most popular apps for doing this and is comparable to the Teamspeak & Ventrilo for example. It’s a blend of a chat UI similar to that of Slack and has the voice chat of the other apps we’ve just mentioned.

But before you get going, after downloading Discord, you’ll be prompted to enter a username. A username that all your friends and fellow gamers are going to see, so it needs to be cool right? That’s something we can help with.

What should I name myself on Discord?

Sat there scratching your head, not sure what to name yourself? There are a couple of routes that you could go down when deciding what to name yourself. Here are a few general ideas of how you could come up with a username:

  • Use your gamer tag
  • Username generators
  • Use a hobby, favourite book or superhero character
  • Is your go to username taken? Google translate it & see what happens!
  • Use words in relation to the game your playing, CODshot, Panenka, etc.

How to create a unique Discord name

Discord usernames don’t have to be unique of course, however, it’s not great if you and multiple other friends in the same group are using the same username. How do you make yours unique? Well, you can use a few of the suggestions we’ve mentioned above, but you could also have a name personal to you which is a lot more likely to be unique. Another great idea is to use an anagrammer to mix up your name or gamertag to make it more unique, here’s a good tool for that – Anagrammer.

How to change your Discord name

Changing your Discord name is fairly easy, and there are just a few steps to follow:

  1. Login to the Discord app
  2. Navigate to the server on the left hand side
  3. Click the area with the server name & the down arrow
  4. There should be something that says “Change nickname”
  5. Enter your nickname and save

You can also change your name in a public chat by simply using /nick followed by the name you want to enter, send that & it will change the nickname.
