Hundreds of Funny Family Group Chat Names

What do you call your family group chat? If you don’t have one, it’s a fabulous way to stay connected, without a lot of pressure. My family has a chat that includes me, my husband and our three adult kids along with my 89-year-old mom. Mom’s not terribly adept at iPhones so her texts often make us laugh especially when she uses emojis correctly.

We call our thread Nuclear Family which, judging by some of the names below, is neither terribly unique nor terribly creative.

Sometimes it’s challenging to come up with a name that everyone can agree on. We wanted to give you some ideas for your own thread. So, we asked in our Grown and Flown Parents group of over 260 thousand and found out that so many of you are really, really clever.

You have all kinds of super ideas for what to name your family conversations. Most said their kids named their threads.

Our threads keep us connected and certainly in the last year, they have been a lifeline for most of us. Some talk fashion, some food, some politics but no matter what the discussion, it’s the connection we crave and love.
