Spotify Playlist Naming Tips

We’ve given you a ton of awesome ideas here, but let’s wrap up by giving you a few tips on how you can throw together your awesome playlist names, shall we? 

You don’t need to think about much, and no matter how little creativity you suffer from, you should be able to come up with something half-decent.

Remember, playlist names are all about you. Don’t go overboard trying to come up with something that doesn’t speak to who you are. You end up with something bland there.

1. What Is Your Playlist About?

We admit we have a couple of playlists that are just a mish-mash of songs we liked and never got around to sorting. However, a good chunk of our playlists is very thematic—some about love, some about happy stuff, you know, the drill.

When coming up with a name, think about the playlist. You want something that will tell you exactly what you can find by peaking at the name. 

2. What Are Your Favourite Songs?

If you look at your favorite songs, then you may be able to grab a couple of awesome lyrics from them.

Some of our favorite names have lyrics from awesome songs. We have even included a few of them on this list of ideas for Spotify playlist names.

When you include a lyric, that lyric probably means a lot to you. It spoke to you somehow, which is exactly what you want in a playlist moniker. Something incredibly personal.

You can even use that lyric to describe what sort of magic you will find tucked away in your most awesome Spotify playlists.

3. Look At Album Names

Another great source of playlist monikers will be looking at album names.

Albums have been designed to be eye-catching, and they want people to listen to them. We have seen some amazing album names out there. You can find a couple that can easily work their way into a playlist title. 

4. Look At Other Playlist Names

Even the greats have to look to others for inspiration. When you look up songs on Spotify, you will be greeted with a whole gaggle of different names. Check out a couple of them. Use those for inspiration in coming up with your names.

Of course, you could always borrow the whole name. We are positive that nobody is going to judge you there!

5. Be Yourself 

We know we have said this already, but it needs to be said again; try to be yourself when you are putting together a name.

A playlist name is about who you are as a person. Don’t be cool if you aren’t cool. Don’t be cute if you aren’t…well, you probably are cute. But we are sure that you see what we mean here.

Suppose you want to load your Spotify playlist names with emojis (something we don’t like doing). Then do that. Nobody will judge. 


What do you think? If you were looking for some great Spotify playlist names, you have many fantastic ideas here. 

We were even nice and gave you a few awesome tips that should make tossing together an awesome playlist moniker easy. 

Remember to share this page with your friends. We bet all of them are looking for a great name to get their teeth stuck into too.

What did we tell you? First, there is no need for you to pull out a Spotify playlist name generator when you have ideas as awesome as these.
