Whether you’re using WhatsApp to keep up with friends down the street or family across the globe, your WhatsApp group needs a catchy name. After all, you’ll be looking at it pretty frequently, right?

It’s not always easy coming up with the right WhatsApp group name, so we’ve created a list of ideas to get you started on the right foot! Before we start, though, there are a few things to keep in mind:

  • As easy as it is to write long names, you’ll need to limit your group name to 25 characters (that’s the official WhatsApp limit).
  • This is probably not the only WhatsApp group you’re in, so make it simple and memorable. Consider what bonds the group, and consider adding emojis for extra personality. ๐ŸŒŸ
  • If you might add other people in the future, pick a name that’s inclusive and will last over time.
