Indeed, screen name creation is probably more important than most of us realize. But, don't fret! I have a just a few ideas which could help you score a terrific handle.
Presented here are a few ideas you can use to create that perfect screen name using a variety of resources:
Add Favorite Things to Your Screen Name
Like dinosaurs, candy, the number 7 and the color purple? Maybe something like SweetPurpleDinosaur7 will go a long way. Take out a scratch piece of paper and jot down a few of your favorite things. Consider your job or career aspirations, favorite foods, sports teams or hit movies. Be creative!
Consider What's Around You
Exhausted that favorite things list idea? Consider school mascots, your town or other things relative to where you live and what you are about. However, be very careful not to give away too much information. Internet predators could potentially identify your location by your screen name so be careful.
Use a Screen Name GeneratorOne of the most easy ways to create a screen name (with the least amount of effort) is to let your computer do it for you. Several web sites, such as NameStation.com and GeneratorLand, will generate screen names for you based on keywords or even by random luck.
