Nickname Finder

Find inspiration with nicknames for your name! Just enter your name in the field and click the Generate button.


How it works

Your name is one of the most important aspects of your identity. It’s what everyone calls you. However, very few of us have any control over our names. Usually, our parents give us a name and we’re stuck with it forever whether we like it or not. Nicknames, though, are something we can control!

Our nickname finder tool can help you come up with a fun nickname for yourself based on your given name. This can be a great way to create a more casual name for day-to-day interactions with friends and family. Or, it could be a way to create an online-only moniker, such as a username, gamertag, or pseudonym.

Conversely, you can use this online tool to create nicknames for friends, family members, or even for fictional characters you’ve created. Our nickname finder tool is incredibly simple to use and totally free with no requirements for registration.

How to Use the Nickname Finder Tool

On this page is a text box. To begin, put your first name into that box. Keep in mind that you should only use your first name. The box won’t accept spaces or non-Latin characters. Once you’ve entered your name, hit the GENERATE button.

Our server will instantly analyze your name and send you back anywhere from a handful to dozens or even hundreds of possible nicknames. This can seem very overwhelming, but we have a system that can help you stay organized.

Next to each potential nickname are two buttons. The COPY button (two overlapping rectangles) will copy your potential nickname for pasting somewhere else. The STAR button will save that nickname to your SAVED IDEAS list. To check your list, hit the SAVED IDEAS button.

You can feel free to navigate through the various pages of ideas our nickname finder tool creates. It will not delete your list of saved ideas. You can even search for a new nickname and your list will stay intact.

When you have a list you’re happy with, hit the SAVED IDEAS button and then hit DOWNLOAD. This will download a text file with all your nicknames. If you want to start a new list, hit the DELETE ALL button and start the process over again!
