Need a good short username for my own domain

wantonsoup

New Email
I'm sick of email@, mail@, info@, firstname@ ... need something new for my own domain, for my catch-all box I give out to friends, family, etc.

Can you guys help with ideas? Thanks!

:welcome: Welcome to Email Questions!

wtsoup@ is fairly unique. soup@ ws@ wts@

ami@ amie@ are french for friend, and amigo@ for spanish.

Avoid every day words and you shouldn't have too much of a problem with random spam attempts hitting you.

Also make sure not to post the email on any internet sites and web forums.

You should also use numbers and maybe an underscore. That will help from spammers figuring it out randomly. Then there is the problem of people you "trust" forwarding every piece of junk email they get to you and including your "private" email address in a list with 100 others. :mad:

Thanks- not really worried about spam (it'll be hosted in google apps)

Just looking for other short easy addresses to choose from. Generic stuff "like" the standard email@, info@, etc.

Ah, great. Google has great spam filtering!

How about your initials? Do you have a nickname?

What about a screen name that you use for online games?

fud@ foo@ beer@ donkey@ ca@ or perhaps the name of your favorite beer?
