What Makes a Good Discord Name?

Figuring out a good username on Discord isn't so different from settling on an Instagram handle or something similar. You want to stick to things that are relevant to your interests and what you plan to post on the platform.

Don't be afraid to get creative with things, either. The more originality you inject into your username, the easier you'll be to find online. And, if you're worried about account security, you can always throw in a few numbers, letters, or symbols to better protect against hackers.

At the same time, you don't want to make it too complicated. The platform recently implemented a site-wide refresh whereby all members must change their usernames. The founders are specifically trying to rid the site of "discriminators," or any four-digit code followed by a hashtag.

At first, these variations allow users to share a similar username while remaining somewhat distinct across the platform. Though the site owners have more recently backtracked on that option, citing concerns over usability.

"Our current usernames can often be too complicated or obscure for people to remember and share easily," Discord co-founder Stanislav Vishnevskiy announced via blog post.

How can I change my Discord username?

Each active Discord user has the option of changing their username up to two times per hour. All you need to do is go to "User Settings" and click the "My Account" tab. You'll see an "edit" button next to your username. Click it and enter your new name of choice. You may also want to update your current password while at it.

How can I make changes to my Discord server name?

Not only is it possible for members to finesse their Discord usernames, but they also have the option of changing their Discord server's name as well—though they'll need to be an owner or a moderator to do so. All you have to do is go to the "Server Settings." Then, go to the "Server Overview" section and make whatever changes you see fit to the server name.
