Choosing your Facebook Page name or any other social media username may seem impossible at first. You feel like you’re stuck with what you pick, so it better be something you’ll want forever! But that’s not quite the case – there is room for trial and error when you’re starting out.
This post will give you some quick tips for choosing a name for your Facebook Page – including how to get your Page found in a Facebook search – and how to change your Page name, because sometimes decisions are just too hard!
Important: the name is just the beginning. To really utilize everything having a Facebook Page has to offer, join FPTraffic and let us show you how to get Likes on your Page!
3 Tips for Choosing a Facebook Page Name
How you go about choosing your Facebook Page name will obviously differ depending on the type of Page you’re creating. Those who are creating a Page for business will have a different process than those who are creating a Fan Page. In any case, here are a few tips to keep in mind when choosing a Facebook Page name:
Keep it simple
The Page title isn’t the place to get creative. Stick to your business’ name, TV show name, blog name, celebrity name, etc., without adding any cutesy cleverness to it. Think about what people will search for. Your Page title should match popular search terms, and if they’re familiar with your business or blog, they’ll type in your business name as it is.
Plus, keeping your Facebook Page name simple will ensure long-lasting relevance. Getting too trendy might backfire in the years to come. Facebook is showing no signs of slowing down, so choose a name users will be able to associate with for years.
Keep it short
The title should explain what users will find on the Facebook Page, but it doesn’t need to be more than a few words. Avoid stuffing your Page title with keywords so as not to appear spammy. Fans will be less likely to share content from Pages like that, and that can hurt your Page’s viral growth rate through Facebook.
The shorter your Facebook Page name the better it will look in an ad. Creating ads is vital to building your audience at first. A shorter Page title will fit the ad more neatly.
Avoid using a completely generic name like “Sports” or “Running.” Facebook has been disabling updates for Pages with generic names because the network wants Pages to authentically represent businesses, celebrities and brands. Use the specific name associated with your business or fan Page.
Get Your Page Found in a Facebook Search
While you don’t want to get too creative with your Facebook Page name, there are a few tactics you can use to get your Page at the top of the list in a Facebook search.
If you’re not sure on your Page title, use keyword research to see what fans might be more likely to search for. Keeping it as simple as possible is often the best way to go. For example, MLB’s Facebook Page is simply “MLB,” not “Major League Baseball,” because fans refer to the brand as MLB.
When creating your Facebook Page name, use spaces between words. People type in the Facebook search just like they do Google – they’re going to type in “Dunkin Donuts” on Facebook, whereas on Twitter people might be more likely to type in “dunkindonuts.” This little trick helps ensure maximum visibility.
Lastly, you do have the ability to change your Facebook Page name, but refrain from doing this too often if you want to be found in the search engine. Google dings Pages when their titles change, so each time you do change the name of your FB Page you’ll lose some SEO points.
Don’t change your Facebook Page name unless you have to. In the beginning, however, before you have thousands of fans, you might not like the Facebook Page name you picked. That’s the perfect time to make a name change.
How to Change Your Facebook Page Name
Changing your Facebook Page name is easy. From your Page, on the left menu, click Edit Page Info. Under General, click on the Username section, and change your Page name.
Facebook says it can take up to three days to review the request, but it typically gets approved rather quickly. There is a restriction that you can’t change your Page name more than once every seven days.
There’s not a whole lot that goes into a Facebook Page name, but getting it wrong can cost you a whole lot! Keep this tips in mind when deciding on a Page name, and you’ll start your path to a successful Facebook Page.

My brand name is Kimberley
URL is kimberleysforme.com
What should my Facebook business page name be. Thanks 🙏
Based on your website, I would probably use Kimberley Beauty or Kimberleys For Me 🙂
Hi can you help me with my facebook page name, it’s is all about video clips or movie clips. Tha ks in advance 😊
What kind of clips?
I have been having a really hard time changing the name of my business Facebook page. It is an online store and the name is Aloxs. Every time I suggest that or like Aloxs’ Beauty the request is denied so I’m stuck. Could really use help, trying to avoid changing the name of my store all together.
I’ve seen this too lately. I am not sure what Facebook’s issue is with it. My recommendation would be to try to contact Facebook Support.
Hello can you suggest a name for my fb page?
It’s about memes and some filth comedy in it that describes our reality in a sarcastic way?
How about ” Meme and Nasty ” ?
The website is http://www.aloxs.com
Hi, not sure what to name my business page. The name of my business is Living Well Occupational Therapy, PLLC. What help people do is get restorative sleep. At the moment I have named it Restorative sleep.
Should I change it to my business name ? Which is Living Well Occupational Therapy, PLLC
I would probably name the page Living Well Occupational Therapy because that is likely what your potential customers will be searching on Google to find you.
Hi Luke, fantastic job you’re doing. I love your articles, they precious. However I have a reservation about using company name as Living Well Occupational Therapy. First it is long. Second it is attractive only to those who already know about the company. Finally, a name such as “Restorative Sleep” may attract a new set of sleep deprived as well as resonate with those who already know their work. The later is also short and memorable. Searchers are most likely to search for “healing through sleep”, “restoration through sleep”, “restore your sleep” etc. I do think that name has merit
I have a page in Facebook in which I post all post related to any brave deeds done by any individual. I had name the page “Saluting The Real Heroes Fans Club” But it’s too long. Will you suggest me name please?
Maybe just Saluting The Real Heroes?
my facebook page is named OvadaRowell but I am real estate agent under Florida Home Sales Inc. should i do ovada-real estate
what is your suggestion
Which way do you think people are going to search for you? Is your branding based on your name or based on your company name? What shows biggest on your real estate signs? 🙂
Hi, I cannot think about any appropriate name for my FB page..my page will be about the Mediterranen Diet but I don’t want call like this as there are hundreds of pages/groups with this name.
Basically it is about healthy and tasty food every day …that’s the concepts- Keywords are Healthy Tasty Mediterreanean. I’ve named it Healthy Eaters in Action but I don’t like it at all. Any help about how to generate a winning name?
One of your goals for your Page should be to create a website for it as well so you can start sending people from your Facebook Page to your website. When people on are your website, you can make money off banner ads, get their email, and use other strategies to try to turn some of those eyeballs into dollars.
So, my recommendation for you would be to look at different potential domain names you could use for your website. You don’t need to name your Page after your domain (EatingInActionNow.com for example), but if you come up with a good domain, you can use it as the Page name (Eating In Action Now for example). Obviously that is not the name you’d want, but it’s just an example of the formatting. The benefit of this is you start building a brand 👍
I use InstantDomainSearch for quickly searching for domain name ideas 🙂
Still can’t decide about the name of my page. I’m a financial consultant. Is simply using my name great? Like AIZA MENDOZA.
Thanks a lot. 😊
Yeah, I think that would be fine if your business is built around your name 👍
Hi, I don’t have a good name for my Facebook page. Am (Fresher)into affiliate marketing of products(any) from clickbank, So I can’t figure out any good name for my FB page.
And I don’t have URL. Please help me.
Pick a niche from Clickbank that you want to promote and create a Page around the niche.
Am sorry am having a difficult time setting up a name for my page…
But I have something in mind, it’s like a group to help people living one sickness or under drugs abuse.
And also people going through emotional trunma.
I don’t no the name to put it together.
I am starting out with an Affiliate membership for selling equine products and rider wear, I am hopeless at coming up with catchy names that people will remember but that are also specific to the items that i will be promoting.
Any ideas would be very much appreciated
I would come up with your own brand name for the store that you want to use to sell the products (even as an affiliate) so that you can start building your own brand. This is probably the best option if you’re going to be selling different types of products as an affiliate.
can u give me a suggestion for my facebook page?
Sure, what is your Page about?

Hello Luke. Thank you for this article. Just what I have been looking for.
I have one niche FB page at the moment. I wish to create another page about the interior design books and journals that I publish.
I came up with this – “Interior Designers Books and Journals” but my problem is that I also do non-interior design self-help journals, but I don’t know how to weave them into a page name without making it overly long. 75% of my books & journals are on interior design.
I need your help! a) Do I go ahead and use the name I came up with anyway? OR b)Do I make it less specific to enable it to cover all types of journals? I will really appreciate your suggestions too.
I would go ahead with the name you came up with. It covers most of your content. Everything else is just kind of a bonus 🙂
can u please give me a suggestion for my facebook page?
my page is about network marketing, ty
I would recommend coming up with your own brand name 🙂
Am new in network marketing and I can’t think of the Facebook name I should use plus I don’t have a website yet….. Kindly help
My recommendation is to use a name generation tool to try to find something unique 🙂
My husband (with a strong assist from me) wrote a memoir about the five and a half years he served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines. We are trying to find a good name for his Facebook page. Our goal is to showcase our website so we can engage the readers and at the same time, highlight our Hower-Bates Library Network that has donated 4 libraries in the Philippines and has sent 50,000+ books since 2004. Our website URL is alvinandprimahower.com. Would this title be appropriate? Books by Prima & Alvin
That sounds like a great Page name. Nice work 👍
Kindly assist me get a page name,my page is about everything kids.from outfits to shoes and accessories
Have you tried Everything Kids? 🙂
I am a mom of a toddler I have a page called Thai Indy Mommy in the future 5 years I wanna to open a gym in Thailand (I’m thai my kid is half thai-America ) and my page is now about our activity and tips for activities for kiddos and I’ll add some work out vdo too.

Trying to choose a suitable Facebook page name. I will be selling hair and skin care products for Monat (stands for Modern Nature) But it is an MLM, so I cannot use their name in my title. I was thinking about Lena’s Modern Natural Beauty…but I don’t know that that will generate much in people’s searches, because everyone knows the brand by Monat. I also thought about Lena’s Locks, but it sounds kinda cheesy and doesn’t indicate that they also carry skincare. Any suggestions?
I liked your recommendations.
However, the “keep it simple ” is not simple:
I have an old page called Miry Kornhauser Gestalt therapy which I stopped using almost a year ago, when i became also a coach and I’ve created Miry Kornhauser life coach page.
Now i want to merge them and not sure about the name:
Miry Kornhauser Gestalt therapist and coach
Seems really long.
I can cut it to” Miryko Gestalt therapist and coach” but if I’m going to be my own brand, people won’t find me.
I only have 190 followers, so now is the time to change, I think
Hi Luke, My name is Prashanta Pandey and I have just got into Video Making,Digital Content and Affiliate Entrepreneurship. I want to create a page by naming it prashantapandey_digitalcommando or digitalwarrior_prashanta. What do you suggest? Please help

My name is Andrei Boeangiu. I am a mindset coach. What name should I choose for my FB page? Currently the page is called Andrei Boeangiu. Should I leave it this way or do you recommend something else?

I am just starting a degin course and I want to open a fb page for that. Do you have any suggestions for a better name?
Hi, I am just starting out and I am building my online store: it has crystals and gems, candles and new age elements, handmade boxes with crystals and intentions, jewelry, just to start. The name that I have chosen and I have the website for is SunLight Corner, now my issue is that I won’t get found if people look for the stuff that sell, so should I leave the website as is and name the page something else? Ex: Crystals, Jewlery and Intentions or do you suggest something else?
Much appreciated and thank you for your time!
I would stick with what you have. Your website should help you get people searching the keywords for the products you sell. The Facebook Page is better for branding 👍
I am making a motivational page. but I am strugling with page name. I want a name which should include “motivational” as this will help in search.

Hi there, I plan to offer content writing and marketing services on my facebook page. They will include everything in content marketing to social media marketing to copy writing and all.
I have chosen the name “Content Writing and Marketing”, it is specific and covers the whole range too. Is it ok?
It sounds like a great name 👍
I am a realtor at Homesmart Realty west and specialize in working with seniors(55+). I also have another business called Loving Moving where I assist seniors relocating into retirement communities. Any ideas for a simple name?
I would stick with your Loving Moving name for your Page 👍
Even after creating a FB page don’t go mad and stuff the new page with content and end up with a red flag being placed on your page – just drip feed the new page daily and be patient until that page gets a few months of posts then you can be sure the page will be there for keeps…
It also helps to run a $3/day ad campaign for Likes 👍
which name should I choose for my page.My page is running for education (Teaching Korean Language).
if you don’t mind suggest me please thanks🙏
Maybe something simple like Start Learning Korean?
I’m wondering about my “@“ username for Facebook I’ve become an independent consultant for Epicure spices. My business page is Independent Epicure Consultant – Laurie Ross (longer I know but thought it would help in the search department But would like to come up with a catchy easy @name any suggestions
The @username isn’t as important on Facebook as some other platforms like Twitter. But, it’s still a good idea to try to capture a good username and I recommend using the same on across all platforms.
In your case, it may be as simple as @LaurieRoss 🙂
Hiya. Great reading btw. Interesting blog and helpful!!
I thinks it’s time I create a business page for my suesartyfarty window painting business( Hand painted bespoke window art/ decoration with paint at xmas time and other odd jobs like sale banners etc/ a signwriter of sorts) currently I name myself suesartyfarty…but it does not tell strangers what I’m about and what I offer. I want to design a new business Facebook page and amalgamate the two together that = what I’do’ …..am I reaching for the impossible? Hahaa.

Hi Luke, i’m just starting out as an essential oils distributor and trying to come up a facebook page name. But I’m sad because the names I can think of are mostly used already when I tried to search/check. (Oil you need is love, You are OILsome, Oilvincible, to name a few). Do you think it’s a good idea to still go with it? Or, any ideas you can suggest? It’s much appreciated. Thank you. ♥♥♥
Essential oils are pretty competitive which is why you are having a hard time finding a name. I wouldn’t be too hard on yourself. You’ve definitely come up with some creative names. If you are going to be selling to a specific region or area, you may want to include that in your name. It makes you more approachable to people in that area and makes your name a bit more unique 🙂
I want to create my FB page name for who are want to start their new life, those who want fill their dreams & achieve their goals and who are unable to go for jobs due to family or children or any other issues.It is work from home business for every one.so please suggest me a good page name.
This is a tough one. What kind of content are you thinking about posting?
I want to change my FB page into something catchy or buyers can easily visit on. I want to sell different products at a cheaper prices. I want that it to be basically a platform where buyers can buy anything at a lower price. Currently it is named as Emart Choices. Pls help.. I want to put something related to “thrift” that caters from millenials to young professionals to adults..basically at a cheaper price
I think you’ll likely need to create a new Page for this to change the name, but you’re welcome to try. Definitely go with something “Thrift” or “Cheaper” in the name though 🙂
Please I need a unique to give for my page that will attract more people to follow my page, I’m online business affiliate marketing. Thanks Luke

I also would like to ask some suggestion for my FB Page, named Inspiringly, Inspiring Lee. It was my desire to inspire people. Though, I would want it to be more specific. My story, I was a weakling growing up, but I thrive to be strong. In this pursuit, I tried some sports and came to love Triathlon. I’m still under training. But I would love the idea of sharing the journey with other people (I especially hope to reach fellow weaklings), and inspire them. So I’ve been thinking of changing the FB Name to something with regards to Triathlon, so it would be searchable. Any suggestion will help. Thanks a lot!

Hello Luke, very thankful for your page. It has given me lots of tips and ideas. I’ll create a Facebook page for Arabic language learning in Italy (in Italian language) and have been wondering what cool and attractive name I’d give. The contents will be varying from grammar to vocabs, common mistakes, fun facts, culture, games, literature, quotes from TV series and movies and so on… covering all levels and interests. What would you suggest?
Hi Luke, my business is Financial planning and I am also looking into Affiliate marekting. Should I make 2 separate FB pages for these niches? and any page name suggestion? thanks. Be safe.
Yes, I would make 2 separate Pages. A name is tough without more info, but make sure you check out my affiliate marketing forum 😃
I am about to start my business as an affliate marketer for online courses. My URL is about key online training classes, which is different to the website belonging to my affiliate provider.
Should I name my FB page the same as my URL leaving out the .com? This is my first FB page set up. Any great suggestions?
Do I set my FB business page from my personal FB account, or do I start a new FB account to do this?
I would use your domain minus the .com. You can create the Page from your personal account. You may want to make a Business Manager for it though.
