Why Putting Thought Into Your Server Name Matters

Before we dive into the big list of creative name suggestions, let‘s quickly go over why your server name carries so much weight:

  • Shapes first impressions – Your name is one of the first things new members notice. A name that pops attracts more interest in joining.

  • Sets expectations – An accurate, descriptive name lets members know what your server is all about before joining.

  • Reflects your culture – Your name encapsulates the personality and vibes of your community. Choose something fitting.

  • Branding and recognition – A consistent, standout name increases your discoverability and brand identity.

  • Conveys your purpose – Your name should match the topic and purpose of your server.

With over 16 million active servers on Discord as of 2022, you want a name that gets your community noticed in a sea of servers.

According to Discord, topics like gaming, entertainment, and just chatting make up over 75% of public Discord servers. So you need a name that stands out from gaming and entertainment-focused servers.

Next, let‘s explore tips to spark creative ideas when brainstorming your server name.

Expert Tips for Choosing the Perfect Discord Server Name

When coming up with a name, keep these expert tips in mind:

Be Concise Yet Descriptive

Keep the name reasonably short and memorable, but still communicate the purpose of your server. The name should contain relevant keywords related to your community‘s niche or topic.

For example, "Pixel Paradise" is a concise, descriptive name for a retro gaming server.

Have Fun and Get Creative

Incorporate wordplay, rhymes, alliteration, puns, song lyrics, and pop culture or gaming references. Some examples:

  • Rhymes: Sniper Society, Creature Feature

  • Alliteration: Lions Lounge, Literary Lounge, Disney District

  • Puns: Server McServerface, The Voiceover Vault

  • Song Lyrics: Hotel California, Paradise City

  • References: Hogwarts Great Hall, Kame House

Establish Your Vibe

Your name can convey the general ambiance, emotions, or experience you hope to create in your server. Some examples:

  • Cozy Corner (warm, welcoming)
  • Zen Zone (relaxed, chill)
  • Hype House (energetic, fun)

Stay On Brand

If your server relates to an existing brand, incorporate that name. For example, a server for Campo Santo game fans could be called Campo Headquarters.

Avoid Anything Offensive

Steer clear of inappropriate or hurtful language. The goal is to be inclusive and make people feel welcomed when they see your server name.

Now let‘s look at server name ideas organized by common Discord topics and communities.

Try to create synergy between your name and icon for consistency. Use the same colors, symbols, characters or themes referenced in the name.

For example, Pixel Playground could have a retro game controller icon. Book Dragon Lair could have a dragon reading a book.

A cohesive name and icon gives your server a strong brand identity. But don‘t stress too much—you can always change them later!

Changing Your Server Name and Icon

One of the best things about Discord is you can edit your server name and icon at any time. As your community evolves, you may want to rebrand with a new name and look.

To change your existing name and icon, simply head to Server Settings > Overview in the sidebar menu. Change the server name in the provided field and upload a new icon image. Hit Save and you‘re done!

Don‘t be afraid to get creative and change your branding as often as you want. The most important thing is choosing a name and icon that speak to your community.
