Of course, those names could be taken too, so play around with it until you find the right name for you. This could be by adding an underscore or hyphen just before your niche keyword, so it’s all about finding what’s right for you.

Many people might not have a specific niche they pander towards, so here are some examples of things you can do if your original name is taken:

In the examples above you can see using words such as “real” “official” or “the,” is another great way to lock up your social media username if you’re not someone with a niche, and still make it look presentable.

By using or, you will be able to see if your name is available across all platforms, which is helpful as you can check everything in one place.
