I decided you utilise and rebrand my YouTube channel earlier this week and the hardest part of this was deciding on a name. The theme of my channel is mainly about location in England, tech and fun. I toyed and contemplated with a lot of names that I could not settle one.

In the end I settled with just my name with TV at the end. Not very creative but at the end of the day it is what it is lol

How hard was it to decide on a name for your channel?

I had a horrible time coming up with a name for my real estate channel because I was tussling with my intended audience. My subject area is pretty boring and lends itself to boring, overused, and duplicated titles.

I launched a 2nd channel. I tussled with it a bit until I got clarity of my intended audience and purpose of the channel. Plus trying to find something unique and a little catchy is pretty tough nowadays.

I was happy with my channel's name back on April 2020. But then on July 2020, a profesional musician released a song and album using the name/title the same as my channel's.
It's very hard now to find my channel using search engines. :laughing:

Yes, you can have name clashes on the Internet. Getting a good available name gets harder and harder every year. It requires more creativity. You may be forced to change your name if you don't want to get lost in the searches of your name.

I've been thinking about changing the name. But I don't think I can do it. :D
At least, not now.
Changing the name would be a drastic move for me.
