You’ve mastered cooking and baking, you’ve created a bunch of recipes, and you’ve even shot some fantastic photos of your creations. Now, you just need a place on the web to share your delicious foods for everyone to enjoy and share. Oh, and it wouldn’t hurt that you can make money doing this.

So, you decide to start a food blog. But what about the perfect name?!

I get it. Naming a blog can be daunting. There are hundreds if not thousands of aspiring bloggers who want to get started—but just can’t find that perfect name.

When I started my blog, I chose the worst name on the planet. You wouldn’t guess the awful thread of words I selected. But despite the terrible branding choice, I decided to start. And that’s what matters.

Today, I’m in love with my blog’s name, The Pay at Home Parent. And I’ve learned some of the do’s and don’ts of creating that perfect name for a blog.

I decided to share the best food blog name ideas so that you don’t have to let choosing a name hold you back any longer. You can either pick one of these as it is from the list, or use it as inspiration for a name. But if it’s available and you love it, make sure to snag it fast, or it could be gone the next time you check!

5 Tips to Choose a Blog Name for Food Topics

food and a laptop

You’ve probably stumbled across some of the perfect food blog names only to find that they are claimed. That’s OK! You can still use those names as inspiration for your blog’s name.

1. Add, Remove, or Change a Word

Even if a name is taken, it’s possible to change up the wording just enough to make it unique. You’ll want to change more than adding an “s,” however. For example, it wouldn’t be good practice to choose the blog name “Recipes for the Foodies” if someone already claimed the name, “Recipes for the Foodie.” Most importantly, you can check to see if a phrase is trademarked before choosing it. That way, you won’t run into any legal issues down the road.

Plus, if your food blog’s name is too close to a competitor’s, it might be hard for your readers to differentiate the two or find you at all.

In a case like this, you could use the other blog’s name as inspiration, but make it your own. Try something like, “Food for the Foodie” or “The Food Loving Foodie.” While a blogger can claim copyrights for a particular phrase, she can’t copyright common words like “food” or “foodie.” You can simply pair them with other words to come up with the perfect food blog name.

2. Use a Domain Name Generator

When you find a food blogger with a catchy name, you can plug it into a domain name generator to get similar ideas. Play with Namecheap’s domain name generator to find one that you love. You can sort by price, category, availability, and more. Plus, Namecheap is a great place to purchase cheap food blog domains.

3. Use Keywords

When you know what keywords your future audience will type into Google to find your content, you can plan ahead and write the topics that they will love. It’s not necessary but it can be helpful to use keywords in your blog’s name. If you’re starting a blog without knowing what keyword research is (or how to do it), consider reading my eBook called Get Your Keywords Together. The strategies that I teach will help you find the keywords that will bring readers to your blog in droves.

4. Use Your Name

If you plan to keep your recipes associated with your name forever (and you don’t plan to sell your blog), then consider using your name for your food blog. You can still get creative with the name, and you’ll run into far fewer names that have already been claimed this way.

For example, you can use “Jane’s Delicious Recipes” or “Jane Doe’s Delicious Recipes.” You can use your first name, last name, and even include your middle name. This way, you can focus the branding around YOU.

5. Don’t Limit Yourself to a .com

Food blogging names can be more catchy and memorable if you end your domain name with an extension like .recipes, .cooking, or .food. For example, instead of a domain name like JanesDeliciousRecipes.com, you could shorten it and use JanesDelicious.Recipes.

Using .com at the end of your URL is popular, but it’s not the only way to go. You will open up an endless list of names for a food blog if you consider a different extension.
