My name is Tatiana, but my friends and family call me Tutta. I love writing articles that bring a little creativity to everyday life.

Have you ever wanted to be a superhero? Well, now you can! All you need is a cool name, a coordinating costume, and a fearless alter ego, and there you are!

Being a superhero isn’t all about fame and the cool looks, of course. It’s also the ability and desire to rescue people and be there at a moment’s notice. It’s also a good idea not to reveal your true identity because this would take away from the mystery and suspense of it all.

Picking a Good Superhero Name

Ready to start the transformation? Grab your cape, and let’s fly on into the storm (brainstorm, that is)! Having the perfect superhero name is crucial to the very existence of the alternate person you’ll become. I mean, you have to think, you’re going to be making news headlines and stuff, so you can’t go with a lame name!

Now, if you’re going to be a superhero, there are a few things that you should know while you’re blasting through superhero names:

  • Sounds cool: The entire notion of superheroes have a reputation to hold up, and part of that is to have a really cool-sounding name! It needs to have a nice flow and look good in print. Alliterations (repetitions in letter sounds) sound good. Powerful words sound good, like the use of “super.” There are tons of ways to sound cool.
  • Adds mystique: Your name, while being really cool-sounding, also needs to contribute to your mysterious persona. There are always those moments when the superhero flies in to save the day, then vanishes once the hard work is done. Then people learn the name and become awe-stricken and curious.
  • Your look: If you’ve already established a costume or costume concept, then you’ll want to choose a name that goes with it, of course. If you have yet to think about the superhero getup, then start thinking about names that also give you ideas for your wardrobe.
  • Skillset: Every superhero has special abilities, and your superhero name should reflect your super abilities! Make a list of abilities you’d like to have, and try to come up with some names that coincide with them.

With all of these things considered, it’s time to start thinking of names! To give you some inspiration, here are a bunch of superhero names to suit your needs (and alter ego!).

Deciding on Your Superhero Name

You probably have short-listed a few of the names we listed, and maybe even thought of a few on your own. Now that you've got some ideas, it's time to narrow down your names. Review your list and ask yourself the following questions about each name:

  1. Does the name sound good when said aloud? Does it have a nice flow?
  2. Does it contribute to the persona I’m trying to achieve?

If you still aren't sure, you can also keep thinking up cool names until you find the perfect superhero name.

One fun way of coming up with superhero names is to generate them at random and then picking your colors, attire, skills, and so on. There are many ways to do this, but you can totally come up with your own. An example would be the color of your shirt and the first thing you see in the sky. Lots of possibilities!
