57 Cool Gamer Tag Examples and How to Create Your Own

A cool gamer tag lets you stand out from other players. Not to mention that it can also be a great conversation starter in a game after another player notices it and asks about your nickname. 

The problem with cool gamer tags is that finding a unique tag that you like is a daunting task. Considering how many video game players there are worldwide, it feels like all the cool names are already taken. 

Nevertheless, despite the frustration, you can still find a suitable gamer tag that looks cool. If you lack the creativity to come up with some ideas, this article will come in quite handy.

Below, you will find what steps you need to take and examples of interesting gamer tags that can inspire you.

Step #1 – Use Personal Credentials

Making use of personal credentials is a possible approach. You can, for instance, use your initials as a foundation for the gamer tag. 

CJ, MJ, JS, or TD could be combined with other words and turned into something like CJ the Slayer or Spartan TD. 

Next, you can also add a number to the tag, like the year of your birth. JS91 or MJ88 are two examples.

Step #2 – Use Foreign Languages

A foreign language is another method to make your gamer tag stand out. Instead of English, why not try a more obscure language to replace a word or two in your nickname?

For example, if your gamer tag is WhiteCat, you can switch it to WhiteNeko. Neko is Japanese for cat. Or what about Latin? Instead of Dark Shadow, you could go with Tenebris Umbra. 

The more foreign languages and combinations you explore, the higher the chances of coming up with a truly unique gamer tag, since most gamers stick to the English language.

Step #3 – Use Humor and Popular Media References

An interesting reference to a popular movie or a TV show is a worthwhile consideration, especially if you are a big fan of the media piece yourself. 

For humor, you could also explore different ideas. Take shooter games, for instance. You could go with TooBusyReloading which is a reference to an excuse for why you died. And what about oxymorons? OpenSecret or Truthful Liar is interesting and has some humor to it. The latter is also a reference to the movie “True Lies.”
