Rule 6. Add Your Job Title or Function 

 Sometimes it is hard to come up with a combination that is not used on Gmail or Outlook. Another method of creating good email names is to add an abbreviated description of your job or title to your email address.
 
Here are a few examples using this rule:
 
 
This method should not be used unless the previous methods do not work.
 

Rule 7. Location, Location, Location – For Local Business Owners

 If your business focuses on a specific city, state, country, or region, you can add it to your name to give you more options. This is ideal for local service businesses who only serve a single town or city.
 
Examples of this technique:
 
 
Once again, this should only be used if you don’t find other options. It is a great way to separate yourself from other people with the same name but does make your email address longer than we prefer.
 

Rule 8. Don’t Forget Microsoft’s Other Domain Names

While your free account on Google is limited to Gmail.com, that is not true for a Microsoft account. You are not stuck with Outlook.com. You can choose from any of these other domains to create good email names:
 
 
This option gives you a little better chance of being able to use your name without the other descriptors attached. Please keep in mind, these domain names are not as well known as business email addresses, so if you can use Gmail or Outlook, it is preferred.
 

Rule 9. Have you asked?

You might be surprised how many email addresses are no longer being used, or the owner doesn’t care if they keep it. Sometimes getting the perfect name is as simple as asking. 
 
Try sending a short email to the email address you would like to have. Ask them if they are still using it, or would be willing to transfer it to you for a low price. 
 
You may get told “No” but sometimes that simple question gives you the perfect email address for your business needs. 
 
This should be your last option because it is the least likely to work.
