Let these artist name ideas help spark your creativity

We’ve put together some inspiring and catchy name ideas from our Artist Name Generator to help you along your journey.

What makes a good artist name?

A good artist name should be memorable, unique and reflect the creativity and passion you bring to your art. To find one that's perfect for your artistic identity, start by thinking about the vibe you want to create. For example, are you an aspiring pop star who wants to be known for your bold performance art or a portrait painter who wants to evoke feelings of class and elegance?

It's also a good idea to pick an artist name that isn't too specific. Instead of making your stage name "Blonde Venus," you could go for something like “Venus Rising" or “Venus in Retrograde” in case you ever decide to change up your hair color.

Keeping the right adjectives in mind can help create the feeling you want viewers to have when they see your name. Remember, your artist name is a huge part of your creative identity, so make sure it showcases your personality, resonates with your audience and leaves a lasting impression.
