Help me come up with a domain name for my blog!

17 replies
I am starting a blog with the main topics being veterinary medicine (cats and dogs mostly) and traveling.
A little more info on myself and my plan for my blog:
My name is Emily and I am currently a veterinary student in the Caribbean. I am dedicated to helping people and their pets. I love to travel and yearn to travel the world one day, but with my massive student loans, I'm worried I won't get the opportunity to do so until I am old! So, hopefully this blog can help me pay off loans and/or support my passion to travel. I'm also a bit of an artist/photographer/model, so I might incorporate that into the blog as well.
I need help coming up with a catchy name (or opinions on a name I have already come up with). Here are some I have thought of:
Traveling vet, World vet, Voyaging vet, Veterinary voyage, Migrating vet, Veterinary journey, Veterinary excursion, Wandering vet, etc.
My main concerns with some of these names is that people often use the term "vet" as pertaining to "veteran" instead of "veterinarian," and when some people think of a traveling veterinarian, they think of a mobile veterinary service when that is not what I'm trying to do here.
Any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks!

    The name isn't going to dictate the success of the blog. Any of the ones you came up with would work. What determines the success is the amount of traffic and how you choose to monetize the blog. However, if the blog isn't really about you traveling the world and administering veterinary services, I'm not sure you need both to be included in the name of the blog.

    I'm a bit concerned that you are kind of all over the place with what you want the blog to be about. Pick one - veterinarian medicine, travel or artist/photography/modeling. It's going to be hard to do all three and hold an audience.

      You have a lot of topics going here. It might be difficult for you to get a strong audience since the topics are not even related to one another. Start your niche on one broad topic and expound it, breaking it down to 1-2 topics. If your main subject is veterinary medicine which focuses entirely on cats and dogs, then find a name that relates to it.

    This is two blogs as the markets are not even remotely related.

      Could one person run two blogs? Is that possible?

    There are many people who run far more than two!

    this is probably the least of your worries and you are already over thinking it. You should find one in less than a day and stick to it and worry about other things further down the pipeline. You don't even know the nature of your business yet, until; you've effected it, and your name can be changed at any time and will probably evolve anyway

    So, I've done some thinking about the topic and I think I will go with traveling with pets! I travel with my dog a lot and I think it's a perfect way to incorporate both my love for animals and traveling into one blog without having the 'all over the place' effect. I then can break it down into 2 side topics: general traveling (without pets) and veterinary medicine (because sometimes your pets need meds to travel).
    Let me know what you think and I am still open to ideas on a domain name!

    I would separate the topics - vet and travelling, it's kind of confusing and likely has different audiences.. with that being said, any of those names in the domain would be fun, just pick and get started!!

    I would suggest doing some keyword research for your blog title. If you have a relevant keyword in your title that actually gets searches you can have better traction. As far as a domain name I would buy an expired domain with good metrics that is relevant to your niche. IM if you have questions

    Don't overthink it - if you'd rather save a couple months of your life go for a brandable expired domain instead of a new one. At least then you don't have to scratch your head if every domain you actually like is taken
