Funny Group Chat Names—Liven Up Your Online Hangout

Online group chats are becoming the trend in social media and messaging apps. It’s a convenient way to get the group together to discuss things, without leaving anyone out.

Maybe you’re getting together the raid buddies in Discord to create your next campaign strategy.  Perhaps your work group has a group SMS so that everyone can share schedules, behind the scenes details, important information, and trade jokes. You might even have a family’s Facebook Messenger group, where you make arrangements for family family gatherings, or simply share wonderful moments online. Surely, we’re all part of an online group chat somewhere or another.

Group chats can feel a lot more like a conversation in the real world, with the in-jokes and friendly banter that we’ve come to expect. They’re a great way to quickly make plans, talk about your day, and share information that your entire friend group, colleagues, or family need to know.

One of the coolest things about some group messaging platforms, including WhatsApp, GroupMe, and Facebook Messenger, is the ability to rename and change what your group chat is called. Unlike SMS threads, where you can only see the names of people displayed, some applications can completely change the name of the group for all users. This is great for keeping multiple threads organized. For instance, this could come in handy if you want to make sure you make arrangements for Grandma’s birthday in a thread she can’t see!  This also means you can make the name of your group something fun, or something that truly describes what your group is all about. You can usually change the group name on a dime, so that study group can become a party planning group after the last final exam is turned in.

Whether you want to make the name something funny, clever, cute, or something that’s a bit of all three, changing your group name—assuming you can within your app—is a fantastic idea. But for the non-creatively inclined, this can be just as stressful as letting slip that Grandma’s getting an exotic dancer for her 90th.

We’ve got you covered – we’ve put together a list of literally hundreds of group chat names, broken down into categories. Whether you’re looking for something that fits your family, your friend group, or a combination of both, these are some of the best group names we’ve come up with and come across online. Take a look, and feel free to borrow, blend, or flat out steal these ideas!

Family-Based Chat Groups

As usual, we love to put family first. Whether you’re in a group chat with your parents and siblings, your extended cousins, or your politically-charged aunts and uncles, you’ll want to name the chat something to properly fit your family members. So no matter if your family is a perfect textbook representation of the nuclear family, or a bit more dysfunctional like The Simpsons or The Bundys from Married with Children, you’re bound to find something that fits your group well in our list below.

Immediate Family Members

Consider these perfect for your immediate family members, including your mother, father, and any siblings that might stick around your side no matter what.

Chats with Your Cousins

Cousins can be an odd group of people. Depending on the makeup of your family, you might have limited contact with your cousins, or they could be some of your best friends. Cousins are magical to some people because, unlike siblings, you can truly control how much they appear in your life.
