How to Create a Good Book Club Name

Books transport us to different worlds and teach us about our own world.

Whatever type of book club you have, your name should be creative, clever, and pay tribute to the much-loved activity of reading.

Create a good book club name using the tips below:

  • Consider the favorite genre or the focus of your club. Does your team have a collective favorite genre? Perhaps the book club is even dedicated to a particular theme or genre like fantasy or books adapted to film. If your book club has a particular focus or your members just enjoy a specific type of book, list tropes, titles, and characters related to the genre of your choice to create a unique book club name. Many of the names on our lists above can be personalized with something meaningful to you and your group just by adding a word or phrase.
  • Make sure your name is age-appropriate. As we did in our list above, create names that are appropriate for the age and reading level of your group. If you’re making a club for new readers, for example, choose a fun and straightforward name that will encourage the youngsters to read, avoiding any big words that might confuse them.
  • Think about all book-related topics. If you’re having trouble coming up with a unique name, just think about all things related to books that may bring inspiration. Using terms relating to book publishing, authors, book titles, and libraries are just several of the many places you may find a great book club name.
