As the self-appointed Queen of Group Chats, I firmly believe that it's not a group chat until you've given it a name. Whether officially on your phone or as a name you use to reference the chat IRL, it's as much a friend to you as those friends that are in the chat. With that in mind, here are a few ideas with which to christen your own group chats.

Tips for Naming Your Group Chat

If you're looking to come up with your own unique and one of a kind group chat name, here are a few tips to getting that one that's chefs kiss.

  • Use an inside joke! One group chat I was in was called, "I'll have another mimosa, please" to reflect how we navigated a bridal shower in our early 20s.

  • Make it sweet and sentimental. As an only child, I have a group chat with my closest girl friends that I named, "I don't have sisters but you guys count."

  • If it's a small group chat, merge your first or last names together into a portmanteau. You can even add on "Party of X" to reflect the number of people in the chat.

  • Don't forget to add an emoji (or four). If you're feeling particularly crafty, you can use only emojis.

  • Lean into your habits together! Do you always grab a glass of wine together? Then you can be "Wine About It."

Group Chat Identity Starts with a Name

Your group chat is more than a group chat. It's your unofficial family, the friends who have your back, the co-workers who hype you up, and the classmates who are getting you through the program. The group chat is where plans start, pictures are shared, and jokes are made. It all starts with a name, and ends with dozens of memories.
