Have you ever thought it would be fun to give yourself a new name? Aliases are alternate names people use in place of their legal birth name.
Many musicians and actors choose an alias that’s more marketable than their legal name or use one for the sake of privacy.
It’s also common for writers to use an alias, or pen name, when publishing.
There’s no limit to the reasons for coming up with an alias, from gaming to street code names to online chatrooms!
Whether you’re a gamer looking for a username, a rising star, or you’re simply looking to change things up, we have the list of 60+ funny alias names below. We also offer ideas for how to create one on your own.

How to Create Your Own Funny Alias Names
Finding the perfect alias should be fun! If you prefer to come up with your own, make sure to take your time and go with the one you’ll be happy with long-term.
You’ll find more helpful tips for creating your own funny alias below:
- Keep the audience/your associates in mind. When creating a funny alias, make sure it’s appropriate for those with whom you’ll be sharing it. For example, a stage alias generally needs to be suitable for audience members of any age. Additionally, many games and websites have words you aren’t allowed to use in the name, so keep that in mind.
- Use funny pet names. It’s common to give pets funny names like “Jaws,” “Bamboo,” or “Nacho.” You might try thinking of or searching for funny pet names and pick a few you wouldn’t mind giving to yourself. Say each one out loud while looking at yourself in a mirror to see if one’s right for you.
- Take inspiration from your favorite place. This is ideal if you’re starting over in a new place and feeling a bit homesick for what you left behind. First, make a list of all the things that remind you of the place you’re thinking of, whether it’s a town, a country, a friend’s house, or a place of business. Now consider what words and associations — or even the place itself — might work best for your alias.
