2,464 Good Kik Names For Girls & Guys
This can help you put the “social” in social media without making yourself too vulnerable, because now, instead of giving someone your phone number (which is tied to a lot of official accounts and can really reveal a lot about you) when you want to get to know someone better, you can give them your Kik screen name instead, and give them more personal information the better you get to know them over Kik.
But, as I was saying, this puts pressure on you to create the perfect screen name for whatever social media presence you set up. Take a look at Kik, which I had mentioned earlier. There are good Kik names and then there are great Kik names (the less said about bad Kik names, the better). Which one will you be and will it be memorable? With a bit of my help, you’ll be on your way.
Of course, this means that your screen name is important. But screen names are already important in every venue that allows for them, come to think of it. For most of us, we carry the names our parents chose for us, and while we’ve come to wear them as identification over the years, sometimes it feels like they communicate our parents’ tastes more than they communicate anything about use. But now that we can self-determine our names through our choice of screen names, Twitter handles, and the like, it gives us a lot of power over our identity that we would have had to go to a registry office and get our name officially changed in order to have enjoyed previously.
If you’re not very creative like me, you may be not be thrilled about coming up with a good username, especially when a ton of them are taken. Believe me, all it takes is a few tips and you will be on your way. But first, why is it important to give a little thought to your choice?
1. I recommend keeping your name shorter than 15 characters and ideally shorter than 10 characters so it’s not a ton for someone to remember. If it’s longer, try to make it a combination of several small words to help it roll off your tongue. I’m reminded of an episode of old-school Doctor Who in which the Doctor’s new assistant introduces herself as Romanadvoratrelundar, and the Doctor insists on calling her “Romana” because, if there were danger, by the time he called out “Look out Romanadvoratrelundar!” it would be too late. Names need to be short so you can use them easily for communication. And even though nobody has to say your Kik name aloud (except for you, when you first tell it to people), it should at least be something that can be reduced to a nickname.
