However, he wanted to be on his own as a white hat hacker, hence, to get him going, we needed some pretty cool hacker names and inspiration to establish him on all the social media pages! While I was helping him out, I made many lists of names for wanna-be hackers.

Good Hacker Names

On second thoughts, nowadays, tv series have taken the place of movies and books! To be a hit in today’s times, we needed names that rule today’s generation! Characters with hacking backgrounds have appeared in a wide variety of TV shows, both as leads and as supporting parts.

Hence, this would also help clear the negative image of hackers, since now hackers are shown in most web series helping judicial services, or finding important information for case-solving agencies rather than describing them as people with the malicious intent of committing fraud.

We discovered many names like ‘Abigail’, ‘Bryce’, ‘Alex’, and Harold!
