Planning to start a food blog, but aren’t sure what to call it yet? I started the food (business) blog you’re reading right now so I feel qualified to pontificate about what you should name your food blog too. I hope you’re able to detect the hint of sarcasm from the previous statement.

Over the past decade, I’ve started (and failed) blogs focused on topics like marketing, air-traffic control, and remote control airplanes. During this time, I’ve watched as some blogs grow and eventually thrive, while others ultimately fail (even when they’re really good). These opinions come from years of writing about food myself, ultimately creating a successful blog, and paying attention to other people’s blogging journey.

Taking photos with food and drink is an important part of a food bloggers work.


At the end of the day, view these as suggestions based on what I believe to be true about choosing a name that will set you up for long-term success.

Let’s get started with some of the top ideas I came up with for the most popular types of food blogs that publish recipes, restaurant reviews, meal plans, and lifestyle related pieces. It might seem like all the good names are already taken, but with a little creativity you’ll find that isn’t the case.

If you make it to the end of the post, I’ll share my tips and mistakes to avoid when naming a blog drawn from my experience. Here’s the outline with best name suggestions for 2022 and beyond.

Food and Lifestyle Blog Name Ideas

A food and lifestyle blog gives you more flexibility to write about a wider range of topics than just food. This approach lets you become a Chip and Joanna Gaines style of blogger. You could write about food, home decor, family, style, and share the personal things about your life too.

There are pros and cons to taking the lifestyle blogging route. On the positive side, you can write about pretty much any subject and it will be relevant. This format gives readers an opportunity to get to know you as a full person too and build deeper connections. This is all great stuff!

On the negative side, if you stretch the topics covered too thin. This can be extremely detrimental in the early days of a blog. If you’re writing about baking a pie one day on Monday, running a 5k on Wednesday, and building a DIY garden box on Friday it can be difficult for readers to understand your focus. They don’t know what to expect moving forward.

I’m not saying this approach doesn’t work, but most bloggers seem to be better served by focusing on a single topic at first. Then broadening out into different related subjects after a year or so of blogging.

This is the exact path I took as a blogger too. In the early days, I covered the food truck industry exclusively. Later, I started to talk about coffee shops, restaurants, and other food businesses. Here are some suggestions that fit into this broad category of publishing.
