How To Find Gmail Account By Name

Are you trying to locate a Gmail account using just a name? Then you are in the right place! This blog post will guide you through the steps to achieve that. It’s important to note that due to privacy reasons, Google doesn’t provide a public directory to search for individuals’ Gmail accounts. However, there are a few methods you can use to possibly find someone’s Gmail address.

Google Search

First and foremost, you can use the power of Google Search. You simply type in the person’s name followed by the term ‘Gmail’, and see what comes up. Do keep in mind that the person’s privacy settings and Google’s own privacy policies might make this method not always effective.

Social Media

Many individuals list their Gmail addresses on social media profiles, such as LinkedIn or Twitter. It’s worth checking to see if the person you’re looking for has done this.

People Search Engines

There are numerous online people search engines available that might help you find someone’s Gmail address. Pipl, Spokeo, and ZabaSearch come to mind. Simply input the person’s name and see the results.

Email Permutator

Another method to try, especially for business-related contacts, is using an email permutator like Email Permutator+ from Metric Sparrow. This tool generates a list of possible email addresses. You then use these in the CC field of an email message (with your email in the TO field) and look for an address that doesn’t return a failed delivery message.

Here’s the simple way to use Email Permutator:

  1. Input the person’s first name, last name, and domain (use for Gmail addresses) into Email Permutator+.
  2. Copy the list of generated email addresses.
  3. Create a new message in your email client, pasting the list of addresses in the CC field and your own address in the TO field.
  4. Send the message and wait to see which addresses don’t return a delivery failure.


In conclusion, finding a specific Gmail account by name can be challenging due to privacy restrictions. However, with patience and the methods outlined above, it is possible to locate the Gmail account you’re looking for.

Remember, privacy is important and so is consent. Always make sure you have the person’s consent before searching for their personal email address.
