Cool Nicknames to Use Online (or Offline)

A cool nickname is almost a requirement in today's society. If you are active in the online world, namely when it comes to video games, then you certainly realize the importance of them. A good nickname can raise your status significantly while a poor one can make you a laughing stock. Cool nicknames are also commonly and popularly used in both platonic and romantic relationships.

Check out this article for a convenient and solid list of awesome nicknames, separated by male and female categories and listed in alphabetical order. Thanks for visiting and happy nicknaming!

The best nicknames always require a little work to come up with. Ever since I saw the film Top Gun, I've dreamed of having a badass nickname like Maverick or Iceman. Unbeknownst to me, years later, social media sites and online games gave me the opportunity to create such a name for myself. The only problem I had was coming up with a cool one, but after much thought and concentration, I succeeded. So, what is it? Wouldn't you like to know...

Good nicknames are like fine wine—they age well.

For some reason, many females don't seem to stress out as much over finding a good nickname like guys do. I don't know whether that's a good or a bad thing.

Tips for Coming Up With Your Own Cool Username

Good nicknames often have a personal connection with the user. Here are some tips:

  • Include your habits or hobbies as part of your nickname.
  • Feel free to use your birthdate or at least part of it.
  • Make a list of your likes and dislikes to help you come up with some nickname ideas.
  • Don't come up with a nickname out of the blue. Take your time. Make a list of the possibilities over a day or two and then slowly whittle that list down. Don't be afraid to add to that list, even after you start crossing names out.
  • Be careful about changing your nickname constantly. People won't recognize or know what to call you.
  • Be careful about being vulgar. Bad words in nicknames can't be used everywhere. Don't limit yourself in this way.
  • Basing a nickname off of a current popular movie or song may lead to regret after its popularity has died off. Better to choose one that you really connect with and include something personal about yourself.
