How to Create a Cool Five-Letter Gamertag

A five-letter Gamertag should obviously include just five letters, but aside from that, there are very few restrictions as to how you create your Gamertag.

You’ll choose how you want your Gamertag to sound and can get inspiration from a wide variety of places.

Keep the following tips in mind when creating or choosing the perfect five-letter Gamertag:

  • Take advantage of word games! While your preference isn’t for tabletop games or crossword puzzles, there are tools created for those games that can help you in your Gamertag search. Word finders and Scrabble dictionaries are available online, designed to help word game players find solutions for their games. Search for “five-letter words” on your favorite search engine to find Scrabble dictionaries and other tools that can help you find words appropriate for your Gamertag.
  • Get inspiration from your favorite game. If there are any five-letter features or elements of your favorite game, use them to inspire your Gamertag. Even if most of your favorite game’s elements have longer names, you can alter them (taking out vowels or changing the spelling) to create a cool five-letter name.
  • Get inspiration from popular culture. Look to five-letter movie or song names to inspire your Gamertag. A quick browse through your music library, streaming watchlist, or playlists could help you quickly and easily find the perfect Gamertag.
