Tips for Creating Your Own Latin Username

When choosing a Latin word for a username, you don’t necessarily need an in-depth knowledge of the language — just a good dictionary!

The best dictionaries you’ll find are those that come from academic institutions. (They tend to be more reliable than other online dictionaries, which may not be accurately sourced.)

In creating our list, we used the University of Notre Dame’s Latin Dictionary and Grammar Aid and William Whitaker’s Words, which allows you to browse by letter or search for an English word.

We also recommend Latinitium, which offers four searchable Latin dictionaries online; you can search for Latin or English words.

With your dictionary of choice on hand, consider the following techniques to find a cool Latin word for a username:

  • Translate a word you like in English. Search for your favorite thing/name/word in English in one of the searchable Latin dictionaries. You’ll find the Latin translation of the word you search; similar words or synonyms may also appear in your search results. You might want to jot down a handful of your favorite words, so you have options, since not every word you like in English will translate well into Latin!
  • Randomize! Use a dictionary that is browsable by letter, click on a random letter, and look through the words until you find one that you like. Leaving an element of your choice up to chance can help you find words you were unaware of and find a word that immediately catches your eye.
