You have decide the name of your blogger in your Niche. Try for that in which you are expert and can create lot of the content for blogging.
You can take the Domain name form Godaddy or other .But certain time Domain name are provided free along with hosting plan.
While selecting the Domain name try make it short ( ideal length 8 character) as possible , which will be easy for visitors to remember, easy to spell, descriptive and brandable and try to take .Com extension.
As per the Alexa report of top 250 sites over 71% sites have domain name less than 8 characters.

trademarked or being used by another company. It could result in a huge legal mess problem.

Create a list of possibilities, using those tools if you like. A spreadsheet is a good option here. Add columns for budget and availability of the domain, too.
You should only choice top level domain for you like. Com,. Org, . Blog etc.
There are some hosting provider are giving domain name free if you choice their hosting plan. In my opinion you should not compromise the domain hosting plan for just domain name.
