Why ape someone or use a byname that’s cringeworthy, when a name is absolutely vital to a DJ’s career? Melodyful does a bit of digging and comes up with cool DJ name ideas for you.
To Add or Not
Putting the prefix “DJ” in your name it totally up to you. Some DJs like Tiësto, Armin Van Buuren, Moby, etc., do not add this prefix to their name. However, if you are not going to be a music producer and only a DJ, then it will be a better idea to put “DJ” in front of your name.
A DJ or Disc Jockey is “a person who plays popular recorded music on the radio or at a party or nightclub.” This person is considered very important to get the party started. You can top this profession if you know how to move the crowd. However, if you want to make it as a DJ, then you need a cool name to stand out in the crowd. Your catchy and unique name becomes your and your music’s identity. Taking a cue from it, this Melodyful article has a few suggestions for you.
How about using your name?
It is an obvious suggestion to consider your own name for the DJ title. If you think your name can make you big, you can use it like many other famous DJs such as Armin Van Buuren. You can use parts of your name if you don’t want to use it as a whole. For example, French DJ David Guetta only uses his first and last name as a DJ, instead of his whole name, Dveriie Pierre Goustaph Guetta.
Though using one’s name is the safest option, it can limit the creativity. With a “new” name for yourself, you can establish your image and craft your identity. Here we come with some cool ideas for your DJ name.
