What a mixed bag!

Similar to usernaming for Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and any other social network, the ideal approach is to keep things simple by using your name or brand name on it’s own (ie evamorellnordstrom, travelchannel, sarahkunst, etsy, wholefoods etc).

At most, those who know what they’re doing just use an underscore to separate the words in their name (ie time_magazine, paula_cevasco and lisa_welding).

The other popular Pinterest naming strategy is to combine the user’s name together with descriptive keywords that are separated by dashes (-) to explicitly spell out what their focus is all about. Some of these are really too long though.
