What should you name a food page on social media?

Don’t get stressed thinking about your social media brand name.

Naming your food page can be quite difficult if you don’t know the direction you’re taking. So the first thing you should tackle before signing up for your new Instagram account is to plan what you’re going to post.

It will also help if you ask yourself the following questions:

  • Will you be posting mainly about meals?
  • Will you be including desserts?
  • Will you be posting about drinks?
  • Are you going to follow a theme?
  • Will you include dishes from around the world?
  • What type of content do I want to make longterm?
  • What type of an account would be fun to do?

Figuring out a theme for your food page will help you come up with a name faster. For instance, vegetarians usually use mushrooms as a substitute for their meats like “burger” patties. If you plan on posting all things mushroom, then you can use the name Mushroom Challenge. For more ideas on the type of content people actually want to consumer online, read our guide on the subject.

You can also use your own name to keep things personal or when you want to post all your cooking videos or photos. Handles such as “Martha’s Eats” or “Jeremy’s Steaks” can be used. You could also rhyme words if you’d like to make it catchy like Protein Routine or Beets for Keeps.

Another concept you might like to try is posting a certain color for your images. For example, you can post all things green like salads, kale smoothies, green apples, and everything else that has the color green. This type of concept follows a certain aesthetic that caters to a group of audience.

Whatever you choose, we hope you were able to pick a name from the list above. Let us know which one was the catchiest for you in the comment section below.
