What is Discord?
Discord is a gaming chat application that enables you to change quite a bit to better optimize your experience.
This includes usernames.
If you’re an active Discord user or part of multiple servers on the platform you can choose a different name on each server. This enables you to have an identity that works for a particular server. (A Discord server is a group of people who can all message each other in the same place, similar to a chat room.)
If you need some creative inspiration and ideas on what to name your Discord server we’ve got more than a few names and examples for you to consider.
If you’re looking for cool, funny, clever, or the best usernames for Discord, we’ve got something for you in each section.
We also cover a bit about the essentials of Discord names.
What is a Discord username?
Similar to other sites, your Discord username is your identity that other Discord users use to know who you are.
For instance, if your Discord username is JoeAardvark, this is what other members of the server will see you as.
Discord servers also have their own names that unite around a common theme (such as the game, country, and other identifying features).
Is your Discord username unique?
Discord users won’t be able to find you using just this name. Unlike many apps (like Snapchat), more than one person can have the same username on Discord. Therefore, your Discord username is not unique.
To make each username unique, Discord will provide a 4-digit tag (often called a discriminator) to go along with the name.
That way it doesn’t require you to send invites externally to connect on the platform.
So, if someone knows the username and the # tag, the combination of the name and the tag will make a user unique.
Therefore, JoeAardvark might be JoeAardvark#1234. A Discord username is not case-sensitive, so typing joeaardvark can work just as well.
Some will also sometimes refer to the Discord # tag or discriminator as the Discord ID. It’s the same 4-digit numerical string, just by a different name.
Can your Discord tag be 0000?
The 0000 tag is used only by Clyde and webhooks.
Each user gets a discriminator tag assigned that can range from 0001 to 9999.
That means 9,999 accounts can have the same username.
So, if you’re AbeLincoln#0001, I can be AbeLincoln#0002 up to AbeLincoln#9999 (unless someone else is one of those), but I also can’t be AbeLincoln#0001 like you.
How to set your name on Discord?
First, you need to install Discord and open the app.
Once open, you’ll have the option to create a new account or log into an existing account.
And also like most sites and apps – especially those monetized through advertising – it’ll ask for your date of birth. Marketers use data like age to determine who to target in their ads, so that’s the main reason. (On many websites, you might need to remember your birthdate in case you lose your account info, so be sure to use either your real one or one you can easily remember. As Mark Twain once said, if you tell the truth you don’t have to remember anything.)
You can also use Discord on your web or mobile browser.
If going that route, click ‘Login’ and you’ll be shown the same prompt to either login or register a new account.
When you’re setting up your Discord account, you can start with a cool username right away.
But you can change your account name at any time. So you don’t have to feel pressured to think of anything that might be permanent.
Is it better to use Discord on your web browser?
If you use Discord a lot, the desktop app might be worth it, but the web app is great because of how easy it is to use.
It’s kind of like WhatsApp desktop – convenient to use if you need to write anything longer or use it while on the computer, but the mobile app tends to work well for most.
Can you change your name on Discord?
If you’re wondering how to change nickname on Discord, we can help you with that.
To change your name on Discord, just follow the steps below:
Step 1: In the Discord navigation menu, tap your profile picture at the bottom of the screen.
Step 2: Tap/click “Account.”
Step 3: Tap/click “Username.”
Step 4: Type in your new username. Then tap/click “Save” in the top-right corner of the screen.
These steps work no matter if you’re on mobile (web), the Discord mobile app, iPhone, and so on.
Can you have two names on Discord? Or more than one name?
Discord has a nickname function, which means you can have a different name for each server you belong to.
To change your name on each server:
- type ‘/nick’ into the text box
- press the spacebar or the ‘Tab’ key, and
- type in the new nickname you want to use on that server
You can also change your Discord username with one shot to change it each time for every server you join.
How many times can you change your Discord name?
You can change your Discord name twice per 60 minutes, or roughly once every 30 minutes.
How can you find out if a Discord name is taken?
If you want to find out if a specific username (plus the 4-digit discriminator) is taken, you can try sending a friend request to that account. If it’s an existing account, you’ll either receive a success message, or a message saying that the user doesn’t accept friend requests. Based on this, you’ll find out if that user exists or not.
Why did Discord change my tag?
Your numbers can change if you change your username to something that matches someone else.
For example, if you change your name from MaryToddLincoln#0001 to AbeLincoln#0001, and there’s already an AbeLincoln#0001, your 4-digit number tag will change to something else.
Can you choose your Discord number?
If you’re on a free account, there’s no way to customize your Discord tag/number/discrimator.
But if you’re on Discord Nitro, there is a way.
Go to the “My Account” tab and click “Edit.”
You’ll be able to set your custom 4-digit discriminator there, just as long as it’s not already taken by someone else.
With that said…
Now that we’re through a lot of the basics and know practically all that you need to about Discord usernames, it’s time to pick one (or a few).
The compilation of Discord names is here to make this easier. Feel free to add emojis, mix and match, and change things around as you see fit.
