It’s not easy to come up with your own gamertag, regardless of whether you’re playing on Xbox, PS4 or any other platform. The truth is there are so many names already taken that you could come up with 10 original names and all of them would be taken.
That’s why we have some super helpful ideas in how to structure, modify, create and use gamertags in ways that others may not think of.
Here are some of our favorite tips:
- You be you: First and foremost you want to think of something that represents you as a person and no one else. What makes you special and unique and use that to your advantage. For example, you could think of two things that are unique to you and combine them into a name. Love Hawaii and Pizza? Perfect!
- Choose An Emotion: As you can tell from the list above we have different themes of gamertags depending on the emotional reaction you want from other players. Do you want them to laugh, be impressed, fear you, etc. This is a key point in coming up with a name. Check out the article on eliciting emotional responses via images. This is what you want to do with your name.
- Dig Deeper: There’s a saying in design and literary schools that your first few ideas will be crap. Get them out there and throw them away. Now, you’ll be ready to dig a bit deeper. That’s why we recommend sitting down with a pen and paper and coming up with 20 names off the top of your head. You’ll notice that once you get to #20 your ideas will have developed a bit more than during the first few.
- Play Word Games: You will notice from the list above lots of them are word games. Take an ordinary word or person or saying and tweak it to be a bit different. This does two things, one is that it makes the gamertag more likely to be available and the second is that it shows a bit about you as a person.
- Get Help: I’ve personally done this so many times. I’ve sat there trying to think of an idea for hours on end. Then, someone comes along and I tell them about my struggle and they immediately help and come up with something I never would. People’s brains think differently so if you feel like you’ve exhausted your ideas, ask a friend or family member for ideas.
That wraps up the coolest gamertag guide you will find online. Let us know in the feedback below how we did and what you ended up with, we’re curious to hear!
