# Another preferable option is to obligate oneself to make another Bracha by making a proper [[Shinui Makom]]. <Ref>Vezot HaBracha (beginning of chapter 10, pg 87) in name of Rav Elyashiv </ref>
# In these situations there are a number of suggestions of how to make the Bracha without making an unnecessary Bracha.
## Some say that one can say the Bracha in a language other than Hebrew or in Hebrew with another nickname of Hashem, however, many great authorities disagree and forbid this. <Ref>Rabbi Akiva Eiger 1:25 writes that it is forbidden to say a bracha with a nickname of Hashem because it is considered saying a name of Hashem in vain. Even though the Shach says you can erase a nickname of Hashem that's only erasing it but mentioning it is still forbidden. Therefore, unless one is obligated one may not say the bracha with a nickname of Hashem. However, Aruch Hashulchan 202:3 argues that you can say the bracha with a nickname of Hashem and it isn't an issue of saying Hashem's name in vain since it is only a nickname. Mishna Brurah 215:11, Piskei Teshuvot 209:7. , Pri Megadim (M”Z 219:3), Sh”t Igrot Moshe 4:40:27, 4:49, and Chazon Ovadyah [[Sukkot]] (pg 245) agree with Rabbi Akiva Eiger and in cases of doubt forbid saying Bracha with the language of Barich Rachmana Malka DeAlma and continuing with the text of the bracha. </ref>
## Some say that one may say the Bracha as part of learning (reading it from Shulchan Aruch or Rambam), however, many argue that this too is forbidden. <Ref> Piskei Teshuvot 209:7 </ref>
## Some say that one should think of the Bracha or at the name of Hashem and not verbalize it. <ref>Piskei Teshuvot 209:7, Kaf HaChaim 157:10, Vezot HaBracha (beginning of chapter 10, pg 87) </ref>
## Some say to read the פסוק of Vayivarech David until the words MeOlam VeAd Olam and then conclude the Bracha according to the appropriate ending. <Ref> Halichot Shlomo (end of chapter 22) </ref>
## Some say that you can recite the bracha in a manner of praising Hashem without intent to fulfill the bracha. However, this opinion is rejected.<ref>Chashukei Chemed Niddah 73a quotes the Chavot Daat (Bet Hasafek 110:20) who holds that one can recite a bracha one isn't obligated in as a praise to Hashem as long as one doesn't intend for it to be a bracha.</ref>
