Still looking for the perfect $Chimesign? Here are 7 tips for creating an epic $ChimeSign.

1. What inspires you 💭

The most obvious pick when choosing a $ChimeSign is to use what you define yourself as. Are you a hustler? A dreamer? A king or queen? Gather the things that inspire you, and put it in your name—because you are what you love!

Ex. $KingJaden, $KayMoney, $MonicaWins

2. Your sign, literally 🔮

Okay, before you say “Ugh, that’s such a Scorpio move,” hear us out! Astrology can be a fun, unique way to define yourself. And for those who are more spiritually minded, it’s a great way to set yourself apart. If you like listening to the stars, this method could be for you!

Ex. $LeoLindsey, $TheTaurus888, $HayLibra

3. Your childhood 🏠

And no, we don’t mean birthdays. As popular as using your birth year is, it’s an extra security caution to not use it because it gives away your age to others. Instead, try using the name (or nickname) of your hometown, your childhood pet, or even your alma mater. Go Bears!

Ex. $MiamiMissy, $BerkeleyBear

4. Your lucky number 🍀

Everyone has a lucky number, and if you say you don’t have one… are you sure? A $ChimeSign is the perfect place to use it, because you’re putting a small piece of yourself into it. Talk about a lucky tag! 

Ex. $TaylorS13, $77Steven77

5. Your (favorite) pet! 🐶 🐱

This is a great one for the people who don’t want to put their legal name in their $ChimeSign. No matter what, we know your pet is your #1 priority in life (be honest), and what better way to honor them than to use their name in your tag?

6. An inside joke 🤝

If you’re using your $ChimeSign with friends, which you should be, one thing that guarantees a good laugh is a good inside joke. Maybe you’re the jokester of the group, or your crew has a fun nickname for you—that’s the perfect thing to use in a $ChimeSign tag!

Ex. $HeyHeyHayley, $KaitTheGreat

7. A pun, if you must 🙈

If all else fails, yes: You can use a pun or a pop culture reference. We can’t promise that your friends won’t groan when they hear it, but you’ll have the satisfaction of knowing that you knocked it out of the park with the $ChimeSign tag. 

Ex. $RunForestRun $GreenEggsAndSam
