Although this is a list of education related blogs, the names have been selected to showcase different naming styles and the range of techniques that can be used to create good (and not so good) names.
While there’s something to be learned from all of them, some are clearly leagues above the others in terms of quality. But when it comes to creativity, opinions vary, so you should go through and identify the ones you like best.
It doesn’t matter if you’re not a teacher or if your blog is not about education. Just get ideas from the way the names have been made up and then adapt the component words to suit your blog.
- Teaching With Class: Super brilliant – wordplay at its finest
- Scribble Doodle and Draw: A good example of a great blog naming technique
- Top Teaching: Unexciting at best – a key goal of a blog’s name is to attract people to it
- TeachHUB Education Blog: Blogs of brand names don’t need to be too clever or unique
- 100 Scope Notes: Some abstractly named blogs just don’t interest you, this is one of them
- TeachMoore: If the blogger’s name is Moore, then this could work
- Darcy Moore’s Blog: This naming style won’t work so well if you have a really common name
- A Journey in TEFL: A Journey In, A Journey With etc, can all work as blog name formats
- Kirsten Winkler: Got a unique name? Just go with it as your blog’s name too
- The Scholastic Scribe: An excellent example of a cleverly created name
- Integrating Technology in the Primary Classroom: This is just way too long and a good example of what not to do
- The Kennedy Korral Blog: Got a fabulous sounding name? Take advantage of it
- English Raven: Nice and elegant – whenever possible, try to stick to 2 meaningful words
- Luckyfrogs Lilypad: This name is awesome if you know what luckyfrogs and lilypads are
- It’s Not All Flowers and Sausages: Funny, quirky and simply full of fun
- The Principal of Change: Yes, this is how to do it – play around with the meaning and spelling of words
- The Nerdy Teacher: A solid name – just find an adjective that your audience can relate to
- 3rd Grade Gridiron: This is great because you don’t normally associate 3rd Grade with gridirons
- Design for Learning: Not very clever, but still good
- Just a Substitute Teacher: Don’t normally see “Just a” used in blog names, but it really works perfectly here
- Ladybug’s Teacher Files: All it takes is one catchy word to make a great name
- A Journée in Language: The foreign spelling suitably combines with language but is this too clever
- The Blue Skunk Blog: Colors and animals always work
Personally, i really like – Teaching with Class, The Scholastic Scribe and The Nerdy Teacher. What’s your pick of the lot?
