How to Create Your Own Three-Letter Username
Three letters don’t leave you a ton of space to work with, but there is still a very wide range of options when creating a three-letter username.
As noted above our list, three-letter usernames tend to fall under one of the following categories:
Three-letter words don’t necessarily have to be whole words; you can use a part of a word (like “veg” rather than “vegetarian”) or shortened slang for a word (“biz” rather than “business”).
The simplest way to find three-letter words is just to look at an online dictionary sorted by the number of letters — such as a Scrabble dictionary.
If there’s a word that you like or that you use all of the time, but it’s longer than three letters, look for ways to shorten it when creating your username, like taking out the vowels.
For a username that doesn’t reveal its meaning immediately, consider using an acronym.
If no phrases come to mind immediately, a quick web search for “three-word phrases” will bring up language-learning sites and quote lists that can help you generate ideas.
