2. Try a different variation of the Username that you chose:

  • Your AOL Username can contain up to 16 letters, numbers, and spaces.
  • If you don't like one of the suggested Usernames, you can try adding another word, letter, or number to the end of your desired Username to create your own variation. For example, if the Username you want is ChatmanJohn, try using Chatman_John, ChatmanJohn1980, etc.

But most of all, have fun creating the perfect email address/Username. Good luck!
