How to Find a Travel Blog Name When All the Good Names are Gone

It’s getting harder and harder to find a really good name for a new travel blog. With thousands of great blogs in existence and hundreds more being started every day, the chances of finding a catchily clever travel-related name is getting slimmer everyday, especially if you’re not very witty, or particularly creative when it comes to blog naming.

No doubt you’ve already spent hours trying to think of an originally cool name, only to find that the list of bright ideas you had are really not that good once you’ve slept on them (or when the alcohol wears off!).

So what should you do?

First of all, avoid using your intuition and common sense. Choosing a quality name seems easy but it’s not. Some people can just come up with an awesome name on their own, but you’re probably not one of them if you’re reading this.

Start by acknowledging that the process is a lot trickier than you initially anticipated and put your analytical mind to work in learning about naming techniques and figuring out what type of name you want.

One of the best ways to do this is to go through a massive list of good blog names that are as related to your blog’s focus as possible. Ideally, it should be packed full of names with different naming styles in order for you to see the various ways great names can be constructed.

What Kind of Name Do You Want?

Some blog names are boringly simple but they’re effective in attracting the right audience and letting them know what’s on offer.

Some get people’s attention because they are funny, using clever word play and puns to make their impact, while others are quirky and a little bit weird, making potential visitors stop to take notice of them, appealing to the inquisitive nature of the human mind.

There is no correct method to name a blog. Ultimately, the name must be memorable and meaningful, and the style choosen to achieve this should be inline with the blogger’s character and voice, as well as the focus of the content.

All the Good Names are Not Gone

For any niche, there are a handful of extremely obvious names that naturally stand out as being obvious choices for a blog’s name. Yes, they will all be in use already. Either as a blog’s name, a product’s name, or a company’s name.

If that’s as far as your imagination stretches, then you’ll be joining the thousands of other bloggers before you who have been sulking and whinging that anything they can think of has already been taken by someone else.

Get creative! You don’t want one of those names anyway. It may seem like a good idea and the top choice for your blog’s name, but it’s not going to be very unique, and it won’t make you stand out among all the other bloggers who are competing for your audience’s attention.

Yes, those names may be really catchy, or clever, or just seemingly perfect. But they won’t be exceptionally special, and they won’t be intricately tied to the fabric of who you are, or what your blog is about.

Once you realise there are much more than a handful of ways to create an outstanding blog name, you’ll open your eyes to lots of amazing possibilities. Instead of racking your head to think of something that’s quite common, you’ll be empowered to come up with a brand name that’s uniquely yours.

Start by getting ideas about what’s possible and browse through these 100 examples of awesome names that other established travel bloggers have used to turn their sites into a success.

100 Examples of Good Travel Blogs with Cool Creative Names

For all of you aspiring travel bloggers who are raring to start your blog but are stuck trying to find a name, you’re in luck. There’s a compilation of 100 great travel blog names below to give you plenty of ideas to inspire your blog’s name.

Although most of the underlying blogs are penned by some of the best travel bloggers in the blogosphere, this list is not supposed to be a guide to the leading travel blogs on the web. There are lots of excellent travel blogs with the same naming styles as the ones listed but they have been omitted.

For example, a lot of travel bloggers like to name their blog by using the adjective ‘nomadic’ together with their first name. Clearly, all that’s needed to observe the naming style is to list one of them (ie NomadicMatt), which is what you’ll find.

Does Jo Fitzsimons from IndianaJo Really Need to be from Indiana?

On top of being cool, catchy and clever, a really good blog name should be as authentically meaningful as possible. But how far do you need to go in juggling the trade-ff between witty wordplay and having to justify every word used in a name?

One of the best articles on starting a new travel blog is written by Jo Fitzsimons who shares 10 tips that every new blogger should read (even if you’re not an aspiring travel blogger).

But what’s better than the useful advice she shares in that post is the name of her blog – – it’s simply brilliant.

Indiana Jo(nes)

It’s the epitome of cool-catchy-clever, not only because it adapts the name of a popular character to perfectly fit her own name, but also because Indy was (and is) the ultimate globe trotting adventurer.

Anyone who has watched any of the Indiana Jones movies will love this name. It just doesn’t get any better if you’re trying to create a name that’s memorable, relevant and full of meaning for a travel blog.

Good Names Don’t Need to be Perfect

The naming trainspotters among you may be wondering if Jo is actually from Indiana as well. For some reason, when something is already gobstoppingly great, we somehow expect it to be totally perfect.

Unfortunately, she’s not. And in all fairness, she doesn’t need to be. It doesn’t take any shine off the awesomeness of the name at all. It would have just made it even better if she was.

The Right Name for the Right Audience

Okay, but all this is assuming that the blog’s visitors and intended readers know about our hero from the Raiders of the Lost Ark movie (and/or the sequels that followed).

For the Generation Z’s and late Y’s who may not even know who Harrison Ford is, this name is not going to have it’s desired impact. They’re just not going to get it. In which case, they’ll probably expect Jo to be from Indiana, instead of London (which is where she’s from).

This highlights the importance of knowing your audience. Something that resonates with one demographic may not mean much to another.

In order to come up with a truly memorable name, you need to identify who you’re trying to reach, and know what they might think is creative or cool.

Full of Meaning and Relevance

Now consider this – would IndianaJo still be a good name if the underlying blog wasn’t a travel (or adventure) related blog? What if it was a food blog, or a mommy blog?

Most people would agree that it would still be a quality name if the blogger is called Jo and she’s from Indiana, where the ‘Indiana’ part of the blog’s name would then take its relevance from the place rather than the fictional character’s first name.

So, just as Jo Fitzsimons doesn’t need to be from the state of Indiana, the hypothetical Jo (who is from Indiana) doesn’t need to blog about travel for the name to hold its appeal.

What’s the point to note? You don’t have to cover absolutely all the angles when you’re trying to find an ideal name for your blog. The perfect name can never be completely perfect, so don’t set the bar too high for yourself.

101 Travel Blog Names to Help You Find your Ideal Name

Choosing the perfect name for a travel blog can be an extremely time consuming and frustrating experience, but it can be a lot easier if you start off in the right direction by getting a good idea of what the successful bloggers call their blogs.

By examining names of the top travel blog sites, you will definitely get inspiration for your blog’s name by noticing the qualities of the well-named blogs and the variety of naming strategies that can be used to produce cool brands.

In addition, you will also note that there are quite a few mediocre names among the leading blogs in the travel sector, which should give you confidence in coming up with a decent name that doesn’t have to be perfect.

If you’ve been having a hard time thinking of, or selecting a name, hopefully this selection of 101 Names of Top Travel Blogs will get you closer to a decision so that you can start writing sooner.

Adapt any of the naming styles above in a unique way to make it your own. Try modifying phrases or words in clever, funny or quirky ways. Above all, have fun wordplaying and you should find a name you’ll love.

Can Blogging really Pay for my Holidays and Trip Around the World?

A lot of successful travel bloggers make a fairly decent income from their blogs. Some even manage to travel 365 days a year, where blogging and online projects enable them to make money while travelling. So does this mean that writing a travel blog can give you free vacations and fund your globe trotting adventures?

No, it doesn’t. Yes, you can make money by writing a travel related blog, but the key question is how much.

It Can But Will It?

Of course it is theoretically possible to pen a successful blog that earns enough to pay for a holiday or covers your tightly budgeted backpacking journey across the world. But that requires a great deal of ability, dedication and effort to get the blog popular first.

A well-written travel blog that has been nurtured for some time to build a decent readership can certainly cover most of the costs of a short getaway, or help to supplement a backpacker’s income, but to think that you can start a blog in order to give you free flights, hotels and spending money is a little far fetched.

Blog for the Right Reason

To get a blog off the ground and into the realms of being a top travel blog, a lot of passion is needed to fill it with awesome content, as well as to love, engage and connect with readers. If you think it’s an easy way to make money, you’ll find it hard to persevere when you only earn a few dollars a month.

But if you do it because you love to write, share stories, help people discover things, or to meet new people online to exchange travel experiences and knowledge, you’ll be starting your blog on a firmer foundation for success. As the saying goes, “Do It for the Right Reason”, and “The Money Will Follow”.

Ironically, the person who starts a blog to make money will normally fail at it and have a miserable time doing so. In contrast, someone who blogs because they love to create content and share their travel findings, will do it more naturally, have fun doing it, and may end up making more money along the way.

Passion before Money

So, while it is possible, try not to base your travel blog’s goal around money. Income may be one of the secondary reasons to motivate you to blog, but it shouldn’t be the primary objective, especially at the start anyway.

And even if you have your eye on the financial benefits of travel blogging, you shouldn’t set such lofty aspirations as to have it pay for all your travel expenses. You’ll only end up being disappointed.

Investment & Expectations

However, all this depends on how much you are willing to invest into your blog in the first place. For example, if you have additional help (such as paid writers) to assist in content generation, or a sizeable budget for advertising and promotions, you’ll be able to grow your blog more quickly than someone who is doing it all themselves.

At the same time, a lot also depends on the scope of your travel itinerary, and what you mean by “pay for your travel”. For instance, some backpackers try to stay with friends for free, where most of their daily costs are quite meagre. In this scenario, it may be possible for a blog’s income to cover simple food and living expenses. But if your travel costs include hotel accommodation, then it’s a totally different picture.

Unlikely but Possible

All in all, it’s probably fair to say that the answer to the question of whether a travel blog’s income can pay for your trips, is no, it definitely can’t pay for all of it, but it depends on how much you invest into the blog in the first place, your competence in writing and Internet Marketing, what your travel preferences and requirements are, and how long you intend to publish the blog before expecting it to fund your travels.

Indeed, there are many stories and examples of people who do manage to live off their blog, but they are the outliers and what you may not know is that they’ve put a lot of effort into honing their skills as a writer and invested hundreds or even thousands of hours into their blog for it to produce a decent income.

Buy your Travel Blog’s Domain Name vs Using a Free Web Address

Even though it is possible to use a free web address (such as from an online blogging platform, there must be good reasons why the majority of successful travel bloggers buy or register their own domain name (ie to use as their blog’s name and URL.

Some of these top bloggers may have started out using a free service, along with the blog address provided on a sub-domain of the service provider’s main domain, and then subsequently purchased their own domain name, or they may have started their blog on a domain of their own and hosted the blog independently right from the start.

Blog Names vs Domains vs Web Addresses

A blog’s name is extremely important, and as a result, so is the domain name or web address that is commonly thought to be the blog’s name.

Actually, a blog’s name and its web address can be different (for example, a blog may be called ‘Mind Your Own Business’, but the domain name may be abbreviated to in order to get a domain that is shorter) but it is always better to ensure they are the same to avoid any confusion and to preserve brand coherence.

Most blogs are started on impulse where the blogger doesn’t have huge aspirations and simply wants to test it out without spending any money. As a result, the free blogging platforms are an ideal fit, as they provide a total solution together with a usable and acceptable blog site address. Who cares if it’s a sub-domain, as long as it’s free right?

Domain Name Cost is Negligible vs Benefits

But a great deal of effort and investment needs to be made to turn a blog into a success, and along the way, the $10/year cost of a domain name (and the $10/month cost of hosting) becomes negligible compared to the amount of time dedicated to the publication and once the blogger takes his or her blog more seriously.

This is when blog owners using free services like WordPress or Blogger discover that the free URL is not good enough and they want to have a more professional address for their site, and try to register the domain name equivalent to their blog’s name.

Domain Name Extensions for Travel Blogs

The best option is to get a domain in the most popular and recognized dotcom (.com) domain extension, but in many cases, it has already been registered by someone else, and the blogger opts for a dotnet (.net), dotorg (.org), dottv (.tv), dotme (.me) or one of the many global top level domain names.

At the same time, a country level domain extention may also be used, such as for bloggers in the UK, .ca for Canadian bloggers or the respective CCTLD for the country where the blogger is from.

Acquiring the Ideal .com Domain for your Blog

Alternatively, in pursuit of the ideal .com extention, the blogger may also try to acquire the .com domain that matches their blog’s name from the existing registrant. This usually involves finding the contact information of the current owner from the whois records and getting in touch with them to make an offer. Or, if the domain is already offered for sale through a domain name marketplace, to make an offer accordingly.

If your blog’s domain name is available to be registered, the cost is only about $10 to register it, and $10 a year to renew is subsequently. But if it is already taken and you want to acquire it from the owner (in the aftermarket), you may have to pay a few hundred or even up to tens of thousands of dollars to buy it.

No, it is not absolutely essential to publish your blog on the .com domain name that perfectly matches the blog’s name. But if possible, it is best if a blog that is called ‘The Wandering Nomad’ is located at or, and ideally, the blog owner should own both these domain names and direct traffic from the one that is not used to the one that is used.

Yes, a blog can still be hugely successful by using some other domain name extention such as a .net, or a, or a range of other possibilities. A lot of bloggers who do not appreciate or see the value of a defining dotcom domain prefer not to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars for sake of blog naming vanity, and go with some other extention.

But for those who want to make things perfect, and only want the best for the blog that they’ve invested so much into, only a dotcom will do.

Get your Blog’s Domain Name Now!

Why not check to see if the name you’ve chosen for your blog has been taken by someone else already, and if it is still available, you can register it immediately so that you will always own it.

You can do this at, which is generally regarded to be one of the best domain name registrars in the world.

Even if you have chosen to start your blog on a free blogging service and are happy to use the blog address they provide, there is no harm in owning the perfectly matching .com equivalent so that you can use it as the official name and internet address for your blog at any time you wish in the future.

Blog Hosting is Easy to Setup and Costs Less than a Cup of Coffee a Month

A lot of people prefer to use services like Blogger and WordPress to host their blogs because it’s free. Unfortunately, others limit themselves to what these blog platforms offer because they are worried that web hosting is complicated and costly.

Well, it’s not, and there’s a good reason why most of the leading travel blogs do not rely on free hosts and be constrained by their limitations.

No Need to Know How It Works

If you try to understand what web hosting is by delving into the technical details of how servers are structured and setup in data centers etc, you’re going to want nothing to do with it. There’s so much jargon and confusing terminology that makes you think you don’t have the ability to comprehend or afford it.

The good news is that you don’t need to know most of the geeky side of it to set your travel blog up on a hosting service that allows you (or your webmaster) to do almost anything you want on it. After all, do you need to know the inner workings of combustion engines or how your car’s transmission works to drive it? No.

Benefits of Getting your Own Hosting

By getting your own hosting service for your blog rather than relying on the free blog platforms, you will have full control of your site and have complete flexibility in terms of the technical and creative design, the content you want to publish, and the advertisements that do or don’t appear on your blog.

Once a web hosting service is set up, most of the time, you won’t need to touch it at all for months or even years. There’s just no need to, unless you are going to do extremely complicated enhancements to your blog, in which case, the web designer or developer who is helping you out will know how to deal with the hosting provider.

So, this means that all you need to do is set it up and then pay the small fee every month, which is automatically charged to your credit card. How difficult can that possibly be?

Simplified Setup with Great Help/Support

The setup process is very intuitive and you will be walked step by step throughout the process, and in case you encounter any problems, there is a live support chat to guide you in detail. And if all this is even too much for you, there are lots of freelance service providers who will willingly assist in setting it all up for a tiny fee.

Unless your blog has an extremely large following already, all this will only set you back less than $10 a month, but most of the time, it’s less than the price of a cup of coffee (in case you’re wondering, we’re talking about the cost of a Starbucks in San Francisco and not a road-side brew in South East Asia).

Choosing the Right Web/Blog Hosting Company

There are lots of companies offering web hosting services, and if you choose the wrong ones, you may be sold a more advanced and expensive package that you don’t need, so be careful and do a bit of research first.

If you don’t want to waste time digging around, and just want to know the ideal solution for your requirements, then or are probably the best options, assuming you’re just starting out and have a small to medium sized blog.

These two web hosts offer the most affordably priced packages and are targeted at novice users who do not have overly complicated hosting requirements. As such, they have great customer support service with live online chat and a very responsive technicians to solve any problems you may have.

10 Top Travel Domain Names that Sold for a Total of $205,145

Most new travel bloggers don’t know much about the importance of choosing a great name that makes sense and resonates with their blog’s potential audience.

They know even less about internet domains and why it may be worth paying a few hundred bucks to buy the perfect .com domain name.

If the domain name you want has been taken and you feel that the current owner is unreasonable in asking $500 for it, just take a look at these 10 travel-related domains that sold for an average of over $20k each.

  1. $27000
  2. $25000
  3. $25000
  4. $24000
  5. $21765
  6. $20005
  7. $17365
  8. $15010
  9. $15000
  10. $15000

There is a great deal of value in high quality domains that are meaningful and memorable, so choose your blog’s name wisely and always try to make sure you get the matching .com domain name if you can.

You may not have $25k to acquire a category defining name like or Travel+(Any Country or City you like).com, and a top domain like may be totally out of reach, but as you can see, it’s possible to add modifiers such as an ‘e’ or an ‘i’ in front of 2 perfectly matching words too.

So if is taken and too costly, you could go for something like or

Alternatively, if you prefer a more creative, witty, and non-descriptive name like most of the ones chosen by the top bloggers, then get your thinking cap on and start playing with relevant puns and clever word-smithing to craft a name that’s funny, cute, quirky or simply awesome.

How to Start a Travel Blog for Free and Set It Up Instantly

Some people want to be a travel blogger but they procrastinate for days, months and even years before taking action. Some end up not even doing it. The sad part is that it is so easy to do, doesn’t cost anything, and only takes 5 to 10 minutes to get it all set up.

If you’ve always wanted to have a blog where you can write about your vacations, share cool pictures with friends and family, pen your opinions about a country you’ve just visited, or rant about the crappy airport where you’ve been stuck at for the last 10 hours, then wait no more.

Do It Now

You don’t need to be a tech geek who knows how to write code, nor a creative graphic designer who can come up with awesome visual designs. All you need is the ability to type and have something worthwhile to say. If you’ve also got a camera or a phone that can snap photos, you already have all the essential tools to start creating a great blog already.

Just head over to or, click on ‘Register’, ‘Start a New Blog’ or follow whatever instructions there are on the site, and you’ll be the proud owner of a brand new blog within minutes. Yes, you will literally have your own travel blog immediately. No payments needed, no approval process, no nonsense.

Meaningful & Memorable Name

All you have to do is to choose a name for your blog, and you will be given a free website address (also known as a URL) such as, or in the case of Blogger, your blog will be located at

You can also spend $10 to get your own domain name (at or any domain registrar) and give your blog a more professional web address like, but if you’re after a completely free solution, then you can stick with the freebie offered by Blogger or first.

So what’s the catch?

Not much. Millions of blogs are published on these free blogging platforms that offer users a web address for their blog, free hosting, and an easy to use blog publishing software that is accessible online and packed with lots of features to get novice bloggers started.

The only downside is that there may be limitations to what you can do on your blog, the type of files you can upload, the type of content you can publish, and some of them may insert advertisements or some other sort of internal advertising messages in exchange for providing the free service to you.

But if you’re just starting out, looking to write about travel related topics, and want to get an immediate result without paying anything, then you can’t go wrong by taking the plunge so that you can begin focusing on what’s important, which is the awesome content you’ll be posting.

Eventually, when you need features not offered by these free solutions, and you’re willing to invest some money to set up your blog properly, you can move the blog onto your own hosting account and get a unique web domain too. Ideally, it is better to set things up the right way from the start, but if you prefer to test with a free option first, you can certainly upgrade later.

Note: Choose a Name for your Travel Blog before Setting It Up

One thing you’ll have to decide when you’re setting up your new blog is the name, or the name to be used for the free website address you’ll be given. If you don’t have a name yet, it’s a good idea to find a name you like and choose one before proceeding to register the new blog.

A lot of people make the mistake of trying to select a good name (on the fly) while setting up the blog and end up with a terrible one that they don’t like. Creating the new blog may take 5 to 10 minutes, but choosing a great blog name may take a little longer, so get yourself prepared and do some homework before taking the leap.

You can start by reviewing the naming strategies you can use and then get inspired by some of the names of top travel blogs.
