What do the monikers @cutthroatcutie, @stealydan and @instadummy have in common? You guessed it: They’re not just any old usernames but some of the funniest username ideas out there. Sure, you could use your government-official name on TikTok, Instagram, online gaming platforms (hello, metaverse) and more. But there’s a reason funny usernames stick. Whether your actual name is taken, you want to conceal who you are or you’re just looking for a laugh every time you log in, a knee-slapping alias is one of the best names for your online identity.
Still, the art of the funny username is not all fun and games. On TikTok and Instagram, for example, usernames can contain only letters, numbers, underscores and periods. Facebook, on the other hand, requires you to use a name you go by on a day-to-day basis, which makes changing your name on Facebook slightly more complicated.
What should you consider when choosing a funny username?
Choosing an amazing username is as easy as 1, 2, 3. First, choose where to draw your inspiration from. It might be something like your favorite hobby, a pop-culture reference or just random things you think are funny. Next, create a catchy, punny or downright funny play on words to craft the actual username. So if dancing is your favorite pastime: @soithinkicandance. If you speak in Mean Girls quotes: @personallyvictimizedbyreginageorge. And if you’re just in it for the laughs: @unfinishedsentenc. Finally, make sure it’s not already taken on the social media platform of your choice.
One thing to keep in mind: This account will most likely be linked back to your personal identity, so keep it PG or PG-13. Have fun and be silly, but skip the dirty jokes.
If you’re looking for an LOL-worthy username, you’ve come to the right place: With more than 100 funny usernames, we’ve got you covered. In fact, you’ll become such a pro, you’ll go on a naming spree, coming up with funny Wi-FI names, group chat names, car names and boat names—you (user)name it!
