Badass Gamertags: 63 Cool Gamer Names

Badass Gamertags: Choosing the Perfect Online Persona
Badass Gamertags: Choosing the Perfect Online Persona

Why Choosing a Kickass Name is Important

You're playing a round of team deathmatch in Call of Duty and some guy with the gamertag "ThrashNtrash" kills you? No big deal: Respawn and go after him for revenge.

But wait! He changes positions and you can’t find him. Boom! Holy moly, he kills you again! The same guy! That's okay: Respawn and try again.

No! He kills you a third time! Feeling like you're about to turn Hulk-green and tear off your clothes, you start wondering if ThrashNtrash has something you don't....

What does ThrashNtrash have that you don't have? A badass name. In the above scenario, normally you wouldn't realize who killed you, but you happened to glance into the corner of the screen to catch his name. That’s right, that gamertag caught your eye three times in a row. Why, you might ask? Because he has a simple, catchy name!

What's in a name? The person hiding behind the profile is creating a reputation for himself just because his name rhymes.

It’s a known fact that girls are taking up gaming at an exponential rate. One thing a guy might hate is getting killed or beat by a girl in an online match. So if you’re a girl, be proud and show it in your name! All you need to do is take a bit of a girly sound, mix it with some badass, and you’ve got yourself a name!

Making Awesome Gamertags

Gamertag Ideas

Having words that rhyme is a good way to make memorable names, but also consider the following tips when creating your name:

  • Keep it simple. If you are trying to make a reputation for yourself online, people may not remember a name that’s complex.
  • Use cool words, animals, and colors! Yeah! Typically this is really lame, but if you pair the right ones together, you'll have an entertaining, and maybe even badass name!
  • Use your real name. You may get lucky and have a name that’s unusual, rhymes with many things, or is easy to work with. For example, if your name is Jack, you could use JumpinJacks, MacJack, JackedUp, and so on.
  • Convey your desired online personality. Whether you want to seem pleasant or come off as a total jerk, use words that will connote such a personality. If you want to talk crap during a match of Call of Duty, you may not be taken seriously if your name is TickledPink.
  • Use your favorite numbers. If your desired name is already taken, try adding your favorite numbers to the beginning or end of that name.

  • Mix capital and lowercase letters: WheTHeR yOu miX thEM up OR groUP them TOgetHER, this will help make your gamertag look unique. It will also look extremely douchey, so it's all about how you want others perceive you!

If you want to be remembered, your first task is choosing a memorable name.

Compromise and Creativity is Necessary!

No matter what name you want, it's likely that your first choice will be taken, but don't turn all Hulk on your Xbox: Try a different variation or spelling and you might find your ideal name isn't as impossible as you thought.

Creativity is key in making a name that will ensure a notorious online reputation. You’ll be receiving friend requests and hate mail before you know it, and that is exactly how you know your gamertag is a good one.

Be unique and original. Be you. (And keep your clothes on, please.)

Now time to watch Burnsy make fun of a player with a bad attitude!

What's your favorite style of gameplay?

Some of these tips are great, like use your name, keep it simple, and communicating personality. Other tips are atrocious.

Two things considered annoying as hell are ALLCAPS and MiXeDLettERs.

The girls names are awful. They sound ditzy and/or desperate for attention. The best thing a girl gamer could do is keep her name gender neutral. The attention you get from SuperHotChick won't be the kind you want if you want to be taken seriously. Follow the first 3 tips and you'll have a great tag. :)

Hi RogueRider,

Thanks for reading and responding. Because male gamers are the norm, you kind of have to go over the top in order to make gender clear. The reason girly names are great is because teenage boys abhor getting killed by girls.

C'mon, it'd be pretty annoying if your name is Bulletz4breakfast and your screen said:

Bulletz4breakfast was killed by MakeupNNailPolish

That is also why I called that section "Girly" vs "Girl" or "Female". I appreciate you taking the time to share your feedback, and I hope any girls that read this article take your thoughts into account as I believe you offer an excellent male perspective on Girly gamer tags.

All the best,

Tutta

I want to make a Gamertag I wont regret in a few years. Currently my Xboxlive GT is GamerGirl DG. I hate it, I made it when I was in 6th grade, now I'm senior and I can't think of anything that will at least be decent. Most of the gamertags I come up with are either taken, plain, or is just like my current Gamertag: A class A white girl name. Any suggestions?

Splitshell 6 months ago

Best way is to make up your own word and stick with that -- Chances of it are taken are slim to none and if it's original enough some people from one game will recognize you in another.

Have to agree with RogueRider (top comment) that allcaps, mixed caps and numbers are generally no-go. They just make you look cheap and unoriginal for having a nickname you spent like five seconds on.

And no... 'Splitshell' isn't mine ;)

JustKate 5 months ago

The only problem with the girly names is that us girls get hit on constantly. A name like SuperHotChick is going to get unwanted attention. It's a good point about how it looks when the girl wins a battle, but being a female myself, i'm not sure sure it's worth it. Personally I just used my name in lui of something fancy. Good Article though - I'm trying to help a friend come up with a new name :)
