Funny Group Chat Names—Liven Up Your Online Hangout

Posted by Heather on December 23, 2018

In today’s world of constant connectivity and the ubiquity of smartphones, it’s no wonder that the modern messaging universe has turned its eye to focus on group messages. Nearly every communication tool on the market today has some form of group messaging, from basic SMS support and iMessage on iOS, to more mainstream communication like Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, even spreading to social platforms like Twitter and even Snapchat, so that you can communicate, message, and share the world around you with all of your friends at once. Unlike one-on-one chats, group chats feel far more personable, often making the users feel more connected, offering up more jokes, friendly insults, and more. It’s also a great way to quickly make plans, talk about your day, and share information that your entire friend group or family will need to know, including vacation plans and other similar details.

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, instead of simply displaying the names of the people you’re chatting with in the area above, some applications can completely change the name of the group for all users. This means you can make the name of your group something fun, or something that truly resembles what your group is all about. And you can usually change them on a dime, so that study group can become a party planning group at the drop of a hat.

Whether you want to make the name something funny, clever, cute, or something with a bit of all three, changing your group name—assuming you can within your app—is a fantastic idea. But what if you can’t think of something that fits your group well? It isn’t a problem any longer. With this list, we’ve got all your needs covered. 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. Let’s check them out below.

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. After all, what’s more important than family? So no matter if your family is a perfect 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.

  • 24-Hours of Drama
  • Family Secrets
  • The Chamber of Secrets
  • Full House (or, if you prefer, Fuller House)
  • Family Ties
  • Yes, We are Family
  • The Madhouse
  • I Don’t Have Friends, I Have Family
  • Silence Isn’t Golden Here
  • We Talk a Lot
  • The Folks
  • The Invincible
  • Fantastic Four (if there are exactly four of you)
  • The Incredibles
  • The “(Surname)” Family
  • The Herd
  • Married… with Children (for the fathers and mothers out there)
  • Fabulous Five (if there are exactly five of you)

Families have their own little quirks and ways of showing their love to one another, wouldn’t you agree? Your group chat name should definitely showcase those quirks and personalities.

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. If you don’t feel like seeing your cousin at a certain point in your life, or you’re having a fight with them, you can still remain friends without the pressure that comes with being a sibling, since your cousins most likely don’t live right down the hall from you. So whether you have a zany cousin you like to keep in touch with, or you have some cousins that act like best friends, here are some great group chat names for your cousin crew (hey, that’s a good one right there!).

  • What’s up, Cuz?
  • Cursing Cousins
  • The Grub Club
  • Family Gang
  • Across Borders
  • World of Cousins
  • Near Ones
  • Dear Ones
  • Weekend Kings
  • Heir Apparents
  • Always Together
  • Colonial Cousins
  • Chats with Brats
  • Kin of Good Times
  • Cousins Colony
  • Cousin Quest
  • Final Fantasy Cousin Chronicles

Cousins definitely can be like siblings from another mother, so stay in touch with the help of these funny and catchy group chat names.

Friend Chat Groups

Sure, you might have some good group chat names with your family members, but the best group chats shine when you’re hanging out with your friends, chatting about whatever you want, whenever you want. No matter if you’re making plans for the weekend, sharing posts and other content that made people think of you or each other, or gossiping about the people you went to high school with, group chats with your friends are often some of the most fun you’ll have in messaging in general.

Of course, to go along with those good times, you’ll need some fantastic group names for your messages. No matter what type of friend group you’re in, we think one of these will fit you nicely. Check them out below.
