A great Twitch username is memorable, brief and punchy. The longer the name the more difficult it becomes to recall it later. When you begin brainstorming your list of ideas for a Twitch name you’ll want to keep it under 12-15 characters. Anything beyond that and people will simply forget it.
Does my name have to be easy to say? Not necessarily. In fact, having something that is difficult to pronounce can actually be an advantage! Lululemon founder Chip Wilson specifically chose the company’s name because it was very difficult for Japanese people to pronounce it. It turns out that the Japanese love names that are American and hard to say. In case you’ve been living under a rock, Japanese always pronounce their “L”s as “R”s by virtue of their accent. So something to consider when coming up with your Twitch ID.
A strong name should be relevant either to you as the streamer or to the style of your stream. While a meaningless word can certainly be effective, it might help your branding if you use something more consistent with the content you are trying to produce.
One thing I think is most important is that it is something to be proud of that you won’t hate a year later. A lot of people when they start out they pick a name that is really quite low quality or self-demeaning. Like “Dumbguy57” or “LameGamer”…these are funny at first, but as you grow you may wish you had something more professional. The way I look at it is that if you are serious about streaming then you should spend the time to create a professional name that you can be proud of for years to come as you continue to grow your stream.
Coming up with ideas for your Twitch Name
If you are stuck on what your Twitch name should be then first start with a list of seed words. These words should be things that are interesting and meaningful to you. Perhaps your interests, traits, likes, habits, styles, or brands that you already identify with. Once you have that list you can try some variations or combinations.
Someone on Reddit recommended the keyboard mashing method. You blast the keyboard and then add some vowels to come up with something completely original. Not a bad idea. After all so many video games use a name generator that is quite random as well so this often works nicely to get something no one has ever thought of.
You can always add numbers if you really want a certain word. Although I don’t recommend it, it can work just fine. I’d say a great example is Castro1021 who has risen to the top of the charts in the last year seems to be completely fine with having 40% of his name being numbers. It really depends on you and whether or not you can accept this or not. Obviously Castro really wanted “Castro” in his ID and nothing more. I can get in line with that and his success proves this theory to be wide open still.

Twitch Username Ideas
Twitch is a streaming platform that’s mainly used to stream people playing video games. It is simple to set up an account and start streaming your video game playthroughs to the world, but choosing a good username is extremely important.
Gamers are notoriously picky when it comes to names, so a username that has a bunch of numbers or other characters may not look good on this site. You are trying to build a certain brand identity on a site like Twitch, so you want an easily searchable name. Your username will need to be 4–25 characters in length. Usernames must only contain alphanumeric characters.
You can also change your Twitch username, but keep in mind you can only do this once every 60 days.
