Generate Screen Names With SpinXO

Geek Tip: Find the Perfect Screen Name

Because I was a young teen at the time America Online went mainstream, I've had a number of screen names. Names professing bands I loved, boys I liked, and one or two making creative use of a lot of Xs in both lower and uppercase letters (stop laughing, you know you had one too). Now that just about every site on the Internet requires you to sign in and create a profile, a unique screen name is more important than ever. Sometimes the perfect name comes to you, but more often than not it takes a lot of thinking and a little help.

Now there's SpinXO, a website that will generate a great screen name for you. Just enter your name and some details into the site and it generates a very thorough list of suggestions — I got 97 different ideas. Some are a little obvious (GeekTechnology), some are silly (TechnologyHir0) and a few just don't make sense (T3chn0l0gyGotta). The list is fun to peruse, and who knows, it may even inspire a creative thought or two!

Useful or not (I haven't decided, but having used the same screenname for over a decade I'm not likely to change it now), this is definitely entertaining!
