Keep It Simple

People will have to remember your name when they hear it somewhere so they can look out for you later, so try to keep your name simple.

When considering a name, ask yourself: for how long would I remember this if I heard it on the radio? The answer should obviously be for a long time at least.


Think About Your Brand & Image

Think about how you want the public to see you and what emotions you want to evoke on people.

That’s why it’s a great idea to have these things clear in your mind before moving to create an alias:

  • What is your main music genre?
  • Who is your target audience?
  • Who are your favorite music producers?
  • Where do you want to be in 5 years with music?

Brainstorm these things to help you plan who and what you want to be for the long term.

Try Not to Be Too Generic

If you want to sound original, steer away from generic words and adjectives that are used too often.
