A List of Cool Rapper Names for Guys and Girls

Author:

I have many interests and an inability to make up my mind about which one to focus on. That's how I came up with my name: ControlledChaos1.

Cool Rapper Names to Take the Music World by Storm

While cleaning, I came across a list of rap names that I came up with when I was younger. The song that convinced me my future was in rap was "Bust a Move" by Young MC. The thing is, I was around nine years old when I made this decision, and within a few months, I had decided upon another career direction. The list brought back good memories, as I would dance and rap like a wild man while providing my family with plenty of entertainment. That list was the inspiration for this article, and those names that took me a week to come up with are mixed in with all the others found below.

A cool rapper name can make a big difference in getting your stuff noticed more often, especially if you've got the rest of your game up to par. While I am far from an expert on the rap game, I have listened to a fair amount of the music throughout my life. I've tried to make a list of cool hip-hop and rapper names that anyone can use, or at the very least, use as a jumping off point for coming up with one. I hope you find it useful in some way; thanks for giving it a look-see.

Tips For Coming Up With a Cool Rapper Name

  • Capitalize words that are not supposed to be capitalized to get a unique look from an ordinary name.
  • Using your real name is a double-edged sword. On one hand, you don't have to keep your two lives separate and it's easier to relate to fans. On the other hand, it is much easier to find out about every facet of your life, including your family and friends. It will all come down to how comfortable you are (if you get to become really famous) with no longer having a private life.
  • Long rap names can be interesting and unique, but just be aware that your fans may shorten it for you in ways you may or may not like. It's a risk, so think about it carefully.

Hip-hop is what makes the world go around.

— Snoop Dogg

A Good Way to Come Up With A Cool Hip Hop or Rapper Name

You can come up with some really cool rapper names by taking the first name and the last name from two different people. The people you choose should probably be someone that you have some kind of connection or admiration for, so you'll at least have a good story to tell when someone asks, "How did you choose your rapper name?".

  • Enoch Deane (after Enoch Crosby and Silas Deane / American spies)
  • Lynch Ripley (after Becky Lynch and Rhea Ripley / WWE Wrestlers)
  • Maitland Slim (after Tracy Maitland and Carlos Slim / Business Owners)
