Best Among Us Names | 🥇 The Best Names for Your Next Game

It seems like every game, you see the best Among Us names that you've never thought of. In this list, we're going to cover ten of the best names that we've seen or thought of. Hopefully, they serve you well in your next game, like our tips for victory guide. If not, then at least you won't feel woefully boring compared to everyone else in the lobby.

1. Someone


This is, without a doubt, the best name to go into an Among Us lobby with. Regardless of whether you're an Imposter or not, it will drive everyone crazy.

When an emergency meeting is called, you can immediately say, "well, it must be someone, and I don't mean me." You'll be able to hear the groans of every other player in the lobby, even if they don't have a mic.

When someone says, "Vote someone," you can also come back at them with, "yes, but who?" Be warned, though; it could frustrate some players so much that they leave.

Best for fun

This name is definitely one to use if you want to have a good time in a lobby. It might also be worth reserving it for a game where you and some friends can chat over Discord as well. That way, you can really make the most of this name.

2. Skip


This was a close second in this best Among Us names list. It's a lot more obvious, and could even get you out of trouble in a scrap.

Even if someone sees you kill a crewmate in front of them, all they can say is, "I vote skip." It might sound like a childish joke, but I promise you that it works.

Best for Causing Havoc

This is a great name for players who want to join a lobby with randoms, without a mic. Since there's no verbal communication, it will be easier to confuse everyone into voting for a skip.

If someone does see you kill or emerge from a vent as an Imposter, it might just save you from being kicked out of the ship. If you don't believe me, then try it for yourself and see the results.

3. No One


This name is a lot harder to pull off than the top two, but it's still a lot of fun to play around with. Players will say, "Vote no one," and you can respond with "okay" and watch on as everyone votes for a skip. It's not as effective as the name 'Skip', but it's still a great option that isn't boring.

Best for fun

Just like 'Someone,' this name is best for players who just want to have a good time in the game. If you're obsessed with winning as many matches as possible, then maybe choose a different name. With the title 'No One,' though, you'll have everyone in the lobby confused as they try to figure out how to vote off an Imposter, even if they know who it is.

4. (Any Color That Isn't Yours)


Since you need to choose your name when you join a lobby, this one can be hard to pull off. Just pick a color, and go with it. If you can't think of one, then just go through the colors of the characters you've played as.

Best for Winning

This name might not seem like one to use if you want to win, but it really is. Most players in Among Us will ignore your name when they're in a meeting and simply tell everyone to vote for your color. When that happens, they'll say "vote Blue" or something similar.

If your name is 'Blue,' but your color is green, things will get super confusing fast. You can object to people voting for your name or color, and really mess up the system.

This name is at its best when you're an Imposter with someone who is playing as the color you've chosen for your name. That way, you can defend each other. This is hard to pull off, but when it does happen, it's some of the best fun you can have in the game.

5. (A Location in the Ship)


In the middle of the best Among Us names list is any location on the ship. This could be 'Electrical,' 'Navigation,' 'Admin,' and so on. More than anything, this name is just going to confuse the other players, probably to the point where they vote you out just to keep things simple.

Best for Espionage

As an Imposter, you'll be sabotaging systems and killing other players all over the ship. When someone accuses you of doing something in a certain location, you can just respond with, "no, my name is Navigation, not Electrical." It's a tough bluff to call, but it might just work if everyone else gets confused by your name.

6. Imposter


There's very little that needs to be said about this name. I think you know where I'm going with it.

Best for Imposters

Obviously, everyone is going to call out the Imposter in this game; it's part of the core gameplay. If that happens to you, you can deny it and say, "my name is Imposter, but I'm not an Imposter!"

This is a great name for anyone who loves to play as an Imposter. It will set the tone for the entire match and should serve you well as you try to work your way out of being caught. It's also especially effective when you're not an Imposter, but that's just not as fun.

7. Sus


Of all the names on this list, I think this is the funniest. Every time there's a meeting in Among Us, someone says that a player is 'sus,' meaning they're suspicious.

If you change your name to 'Sus', then you can easily avoid detection as an imposter, or just have some fun when you're not.

Best for Imposters

I think this name works best for Imposters because they're the most likely to be called 'sus.' When that happens, just respond with, "yes?" or something equally mundane. Even when players are calling someone else 'sus,' you should respond. It will create absolute carnage on the ship, and you'll have a great time too.

8. Not Me


If you're always honest in your among Us matches, then this is a good name for you. In the in-game meetings, it's easy to say, "I vote, not me," but when someone is actually saying that about you, it's going to get confusing.

Best for Causing Havoc

When someone wants everyone to vote for you, and you have this name, it's going to look like they're trying to prove their innocence. When they do this, you can jump in with, "why shouldn't I vote for you, then?" After that, the rest of the players will think that they're suspicious and immediately hone in on them. It'll cause a mess, but it's one fo the best Among Us names out there.

9. Trust Me


This name literally cannot fail. When someone is being called 'sus,' and they say "I vote Trust Me", everyone will vote for them. You never say that you're innocent, and you never ask everyone to trust you. You may as well paint a target on your head.

Best for Causing Havoc

There really isn't anything more taboo than asking others to trust you in this game. I think that it goes without saying that as long as you're quiet, you'll see a lot of people get themselves voted out if you have this name.

10. Vote Me


The last name on this list is a classic. All you need to do is put this as your name, and everyone will get themselves kicked out of the ship.

Best for Winning

Whatever you do, people will say, "I Vote Me" or something along those lines. They'll never have seen the name before, and because they're used to typing too quickly, they'll accidentally tell everyone to vote for them.

This is where you can count on every Among Us player to do what they do best, make fun of someone. Watch on as that player is helplessly voted off of the ship, and you go undetected for yet another round.
