Out Of Ideas For a User Name? Try Gmail

Gmail’s sign-up form is very forgiving. If you leave the first and last name fields blank and enter something like “123456” as user name, you can hit the “check availibility” button. As 123456 is taken, Google will start to be very creative and return randomized login name suggestions for you. “General Rough” doesn’t sound too bad eh?
