How To Come Up With Ideas for Fashion Blog Names

If you want to start a fashion blog, you are are going to need a catchy name. Your blog’s name is the first thing people see, and can say a lot about your blog. Below I go over the creative exercises you can do to come up with meaningful and catchy fashion blog names.

Get your fashion blog name as a .com with BlueHost. I use BlueHost for Hatch and Scribe and my home design blog Home Tree Atlas – Bonus: you get a free domain name with them. Get started for only $3.95 a month.

If You Get Stuck: Then check out my blogging course, #BloggerLife and we can work together to launch your blog.

Step 1: Know What You Want To Blog About

The first thing you want to do, when coming up with ideas for for fashion blog name, is to write out what your want your blog to be about. The more you write out what you want your blog to be about, the easier it will be to come up with your blog name – and easier to write posts for your blog. Try and get as specific as possible.

Here is an example:

“I want my fashion blog to be about college life. The clothing I will show on my blog will be down to earth, street wear. I will take photos of people on the street around my uni, and maybe get other people to post around the US. It will be about being yourself, being stylish, and looking good – even on a college students budget. “

From this description of what I want my fashion blog to be about, I can start pulling out words from it and create some names:

  • Freshmanista
  • Haute ID
  • Orientation & Style
  • Backpack Chic
  • Haute Backpack
  • Campus Look Book
  • Campus Palette
  • Style Schedule
  • Professors and Palettes
  • Street Cotton

Exercise: So here is your exercise. Write a paragraph or more about what you want your blog to be about. Try and get as specific as possible. Answer these two questions:

  1. What do you want to blog about?
  2. Why do you want to blog?

Step 2: Brainstorming Words

Look at your paragraph that describes what you want your blog to be about. Start pulling out words from it, and come up with other words or other ways that describe it (use the thesaurus).

Will your fashion blog be about:

  • Luxury (Glitz, Glamour, Runway)
  • Travel (Suitcase, Passport, Runway, Check In, Concierge, Butler, Room 109)
  • Maternity ( Bump, 9 Months, Expecting, Glowing, Beginning, Nurture)
  • Kids (Crayons, Scissors, Tiny, Age 3, Play, Sweet)

Why are you starting a blog?

  • To show my style (Mirror, Closet, Home)
  • To help others (Academy, Chef, Tailoring)
  • I’m bored (Colors, Adventure, Rebel)

Exercise: Use these words that describe your new blog and mix them with words about fashion. Here are some fashion words to get get you started (add to the list of words that describe fashion and beauty):

Chic

Fabric

Sew/Cut/Hem

Custom

That’s how I got the name ideas for the college fashion blog I mentioned earlier. . I mixed college words with fashion words:

  • Freshmanista
  • Haute ID
  • Orientation & Style
  • Backpack Chic
  • Haute Backpack
  • Campus Look Book
  • Campus Palette
  • Style Schedule
  • Professors and Palettes
  • Street Cotton

If you get stuck…

If you run out of ideas or have a hard time brainstorming names for a fashion blog here are 2 things you can do:

  1. Go back and keep writing out what you want your blog to be about. Get specific. And look for different words that describe the blog you want to create.
  2. Keep asking “why?” as this will bring out more word ideas.

    Why do I want to start this blog?

    “So I can help people with their style”

    Why do I want to help people with their style?

    “Because I know where to find the best clothes”

    Why do I know where to find the best clothes?

    “Because from morning to night I am hunting for clothes online and offline

Name Ideas: A Styling Hand, Stylist in Your Bedroom, Looking In Your Closet, Haute Hunter, Where’s (your name), Shopping For Cotton/Chic/(your name), Morning To Night Fashionista.

Checking To See If Your Blog Name is Available

Registering Your Domain Name

Don’t start checking right away if a name you’ve come up with is available. Create a whole list, like I did above, before you start checking. If you keep checking after coming up with each name, your brainstorming will hurt because of it.

Head on over to name.com and type in your blog name to check if it is available.

If Your Name is Not Available: Here are three things you can do if the name you want is not available :

  1. Add on a short word onto it (Fashion Chef becomes Fashion Urban Chef)
  2. Or change one of the words to something similar (Fashion Chef becomes Fashion Kitchen or Sizzling Fashion).
  3. Message me. I can help brainstorm ideas with you. Just message me saying you need help and what you want your blog to be about, and why you’re starting a blog. Sending a list of words you like would help too.

Registering: It usually costs $10-16 a year to have your own domain name. But you can get a free one with BlueHost, which is the host I use to host Hatch and Scribe. Go with the Starter Plan which costs $3.95 a month.
