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.

13 Travel Blogs with Creatively Clever Names

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.

Unique Travel Blog Names for Girls

If you want to compete with all the other female travelers who are living the dream life of making money by blogging while traveling around the world, you need a really creatively unique name to help your blog stand out from the rest.

The bad news is there are so many travel blogs out there already. The good news is that most of them have average and low quality names, so even though you’re just starting out, you can instantly get an edge over them by choosing an extraordinary name that wows anyone who comes across it.

To get you going, here are some cute and clever girly travel blog names to give you inspiration and ideas to create your own:

  • Travel Bunny – This is cute and potentially a great fit for a female traveler who is hopping around from place to place, and doesn’t mind being thought of as a fluffy rabbit by half their audience and a pin-up girl by the other half.
  • The Wanderess – A wandering princess, sorceress, actress, or even an adulteress. For the sake of cuteness, princess probably fits the bill best. However, when you pronounce this, it does come out sounding like ‘the-one-dress’ if you say it quickly, so remember to emphasize your consonants.
  • Sweet Nomad – There must be lots of girls who feel to urge to use the word ‘nomad’ somewhere in their travel blog’s name. From ‘Angelic Nomad’ to ‘Nomadic Buttercup’, pick of your favorite girly words and blend them to see what sounds best.
  • Candied Escapes – For those of you who don’t need to portray yourself as a ‘nomad’ and want an alternative word to ‘travel’ in your blog’s name, try ‘escapes’, ‘journeys’ or ‘getaways’, and combine it with your girly characteristics.
  • Bubbly Backpacker – Choose one word that describes your type of travel and the other to convey some positive aspect of your character. If possible, get the 2 words to start with the same letter so that it’s fun to pronounce and uses phonetics to make a longer lasting impression.
  • Hitchhiking Honeys – If you don’t mind referring to yourself as ‘honey’, then this is a sweet name that’s bound to naturally attract attention and get you lots of automatic traffic.
  • Gap Year Girls – This is quite descriptive, but it will instantly appeal to all the young ladies who are taking a year out to travel. It certainly sounds very nice. Although it has 3 words, each word is short and only has one syllable, so its still short and compact when combined.

Descriptive vs Unique Names for Travel Blogs

There are two main ways to name a blog. You can use a common phrase with descriptive words, or create a name that is unique and ‘one of its kind’.

There are pros and cons to each method. Descriptive names are great in getting to the point by letting users know what the blog is about. But they can easily be confused with other blogs using a confusingly similar name.

Unique names that are well constructed are ideal, as they can be catchy and more memorable if they resonate with their audience. However, it’s not easy to come up with a good name that’s unique, and many bloggers who go for this option end up with a terrible name.

To give you a better idea of how these two naming strategies compare and their impact, let’s take a look at 3 names of real travel blogs.

The first one has a descriptive name, the second has a semi-descriptive name and the third is a creative name that’s unique.

1. Travels with Children

No prizes for any ingenuity here, but as with most descriptive names, it does what it’s supposed to do, which is to let people know what the blog is about.

‘Travels with Toddlers’, ‘Traveling with Teenagers’ and ‘Travels with Seniors’ are similar names that work in a similar way.

2. Traveling Mamas

Although this is descriptive as well, it is a bit more unique and sounds quite cool as a blog written by mothers who are out to inspire parents to travel with their children.

3. Wandermom

This is a cool made-up name that doesn’t automatically tell you she’s a travel blogger, but once you come across it under the travel category in a blog catalog, or see it in the search engine results from a travel-related search, it will instantly click that this is a travel blog written from a mother’s perspective.

In fact, this is a cleverly created name where the word ‘wander’ is shortened from ‘wandering’ (which is perfectly suited to travel) and it also sounds like ‘wonder’, where the phrase ‘wonder mom’ is adapted from ‘wonder woman’ and is often used to refer to how amazing mothers are and need to be when raising a child.

Are you a Creative Wordsmith?

Evidently, unique names are a lot cooler if you’re able to create one that hits the spot. It all depends whether you have the ability and are good with words.

Otherwise, a name like ‘Travels with Children’ also has its merits too, and may be a better choice compared to a poor quality name that’s unique. Remember, you’re writing a travel blog and after a good name, which doesn’t necessarily have to be unique. It just has to be good, or awesome.

7 More Examples of Top Travel Blog Names

The search for a good blog name can be frustrating and one of the best ways to get ideas is to check out some cool names used by existing bloggers.

Here’s a list of creative names from 7 of the leading travel blogs on the web to inspire you.

1. Budget Trouble

This is an average quality name. The two words do not have any natural fit and one needs to dig deeper to discover that the blog is about avoiding trouble while traveling on a budget. While it’s true that there might be greater challenges and risks associated with budget travel, it’s not the first thing that jumps to mind and hence this blog name does not speak for itself very well.

2. Nerd’s Eye View

Undoubtedly a catchy name that modifies the phrase ‘Bird’s Eye View’ to fit the author’s profile of being a Nerd, which is a great play on words especially since ‘bird’ and ‘nerd’ rhyme nicely. This is a generic name that can be used for blogs of all topics and it is not necessarily applicable only for travel blogs. As such, even though it’s a witty name, it’s not a particularly spectacular name for a travel blog.

3. Ever the Nomad

An above average name that may appeal to some more than others. It is quite memorable and does a good job of communicating the author’s nomadic tendency.

4. Solo Road Trip

This name is descriptively simple and plainly states what the blog is about. It is effective and there’s no question it succeeds in doing what it’s supposed to. Sometimes, it’s just best to keep it as simple and to the point as possible without being too smart or creative.

5. Nick’s Worldwide Wanderings

This is descriptive and leaves no doubt as to what the blog is about. It’s a little but long but there’s a nice use of alliteration. It could have been shortened to just ‘Worldwide Wanderings’ but Nick obviously wanted to brand his name into the blog’s name.

6. Caffeinated Traveller

A lot of people who love coffee or tea will resonate with this name, which may not necessarily have anything to do with good brews at different destinations, but just a blog by someone who gets propped up by caffeine. As it turns out, this blogger does go in search of fine coffees and teas throughout Asia. If beer is your thing, you could adapt this name to something like ‘Hopping Traveller’.

7. Twitchhiker

This is a witty play on words that blends Twitter with Hitchhiker to produce a name that’s aptly suited since the blogger’s traveling plans is based around the assistance and hospitality of Twitter users.

Build the Name Around Your Blog’s Content

As you can see, the majority of blog names are built around the blogger’s identity or the content. So, the first thing you should do is to confirm your content strategy and how you could like to portray yourself.

By making a list of keywords and phrases that are appropriate to your blog’s focus, you will generate a lot of relevant words to use and combine in order to create an awesome name.

5 Examples of Good Travel Blog Names

Some bloggers prefer to have a more creative name for their blog and feel that descriptive names are too boring, but they don’t know where to start and need a bit of inspiration to get going.

If this sounds like you, read on, as we explore and discuss the merits and meanings of the names from 5 leading travel blogs.

1. Kiwis Don’t Fly

This is a unique name. It’s memorable and makes you want to find out more. It’s a strange and bold statement to suggest that Kiwis (people from New Zealand) don’t fly (from a travel perspective). How can that be? Surely not. However, it makes you stop and think, and that’s a powerful hook.

As it turns out, the blog is about the adventures of a Kiwi trying to get from Dublin to Sydney without flying. While this may not be relevant for most people, since there will be very few people with exactly the same goal, there are definitely lots of people travelling overland somewhere between Dublin and Sydney who will be interested in the blog’s content.

2. There and Back

Certainly a common phrase that’s perfectly suited for the name of a travel blog. Unless they’re on a one-way journey, everyone who travels ends up going back to where they started from, so this name resonates in some ways but also states the obvious.

Regardless of the deeper interpretations of the name, it is definitely memorable and should have a high recall rate among people who come across it. The author is blogging about a round the world trip, but this name could be used for all types of travel.

3. Everything Everywhere

An all-encompassing name that could be used for a travel blog and lots of other topics as well. It’s alliterative, makes sense, rolls off the tongue and is memorable, but it’s not particularly catchy or witty as a name for a travel blog.

In fact, it may be a bit too broad in its reach and could make it difficult for the blog’s author to provide enough content to support the claims of the name.

4. Gone East

This name is nice, short, simple and to the point. Both words are relevant to travel and leisure, and they combine perfectly to produce a name that has a primary meaning of suggesting travelling east from the western world to Asia, while it can also be used to describe travels within a country (from the West to East Coast of America) or continent (travelling to Eastern Europe from the West).

5. Overland Tales

A name that gets straight to the point about what the blog is about. Its not overly clever or catchy but it’s memorable and instantly conveys what’s offered. The brand message is clear.
