It’s easy to waste an hour or two trying to come up with a unique name for your new travel blog and end up with nothing to show for it.
One of the best ways to get inspiration when naming a blog is to check out other creative and cleverly constructed names to get ideas.
To save you the time and hassle of wading through hundreds of blogs, here are some of the most noteworthy names used by prominent travel bloggers.
- Meandering Musings – One of the more sophisticated names for a travel blog, especially if the blogger is wandering in a random fashion. This name rolls off the tongue nicely, with a soft and inviting feel about it. You can never go wrong with a good alliteration.
- Sandier Pastures – An interesting combination of words that makes you stop and think. You normally associate pastures with being green rather than sandy, but this is obviously referring to a destination that’s on the beach or in the middle of a desert.
- Twenty Something Travel – Not particularly witty or quirky name, but it is clever in carving a clear niche for itself to appeal to all the twenty somethings who are traveling. And there are certainly a lot of them, with new ones emerging every year.
- Travelogged – A nice blend of travel and logged to form a great brand that’s perfect for a travel blog. Whether it’s from the angle of having ‘logged’ travel stories, incidents or facts, or from the abbreviation of ‘blogged’, this name just works.
- There and Back – Travel blogs with names that do not contain ‘travel’ related words are cool. This one uses a common phrase that’s simple and relevant, but some people may feel it’s a little bland.
- Reason to Wander – This is one of the wittier ways to use the word ‘wander’ and it’s a great adaptation of the phrase ‘reason to wonder’, which is an awesome name on its own. One of the best names of all travel blogs.
- Write Away – Although this may be used for a blog on any topic, it is particularly suitable for a travel blogger. Of course, it’s a play on the phrase ‘Right Away’, but other than the twist on 2 words that sound similar but have different spellings and meanings, it doesn’t have any deeper wit incorporated.
- Travel the Write Way – Another play on the words right and write. It’s clever, but the problem with these sort of names is that they don’t instantly pass the radio test and need to be explained or at least require some clarification with regards to the unusual spelling.
- Write to Travel – This is probably the best of the 3 right & write names, as it is a great fit to describe a blogger who is writing to make money to travel. A good bit of word play that’s not too pretentious and achieves its objective nicely.
- Go Galavanting – ‘Galavanting’ is a great word that’s ideal for a travel blog’s name. Pairing it up with ‘Go’ gives the name a nice alliterative bounce and makes it more brandable and highly memorable.
- Go, See, Write – Simple and no frills, tapping on the ‘Eat, Pray, Love’ naming methodology that’s paved the way for a host of similar styled names. You can adapt this and use any other words that are more suited to your travels.
- Married with Luggage – You either like this or you don’t, but there’s no denying it’s a nice adaptation of ‘married with kids’ that produces a memorable name for a travel blog, even though it’s not a perfect fit.
- An Englishman in Dubai – On the surface, it appears like a descriptive name that’s adaptable to travelers of all nationalities in any country, but people who know Sting’s song ‘An Englishman in New York’ will appreciate where the idea for the name came from.
This list is by no means exhaustive, so please feel free to share really cool travel blog names that you’ve come across in the comments section below.
