It can be very hard to find an original name for Kik, particularly when everything you come up with seems to have been already taken by another user.
And even when you try to use your real name, unless it’s something extremely original (i.e., you parents totally made it up), it is more than likely that someone else is already using it.
But do not despair! Even with more than 200 million users of the messaging platform, there are still infinite usernames up for grabs!
If you don’t believe me, here is a list compiling 50 good names that both guys and girls can use (most of them are non-gender specific but, of course, it’s up to you what name you choose).
As a disclaimer, at the time of writing, all these Kik usernames were available, but I can’t guarantee that there will all still be available by the time you read this. Hopefully, even if you can’t use one of the usernames on the list, you can modify them slightly to create something new and available.
So, if you choose a username from the list and then find out that it already exists, you can try to modify it slightly but if even that doesn’t work, you can pick another one or check out the 100 Best Kik Usernames.
50 Good Kik Names for Guys & Girls

It is always a good idea to create a username based on one or more of your personal interests. The more specific you are then the more likely you’ll be to find a unique name. But even if you have pretty common pursuits, you’ll still find there are dozens of names to choose form.
Basing your username on your favorite TV or movie character, or a music idol, or the title of a classic TV show or film that you watch over and over, may be all be good places to start.
