More than ever, people are looking for games with a strong sense of community to play together with friends.
Many games — particularly mobile games — offer this through “communal playing,” sometimes known as guilds.
Guilds haven’t just played a part in the gaming world. Historically, guilds were formed around professions.
For example, merchants and artisans had guilds that set standards for their work during medieval times.
Today’s gaming guilds serve similar purposes to these historical guilds, allowing players to work toward communal goals, pool their resources through donating and borrowing, and battle against other guilds.
Guild names can range from cool and funny to sinister and serious. It all depends on the type of name that suits your guild best!

How to Create a Cool Guild Name
Creating a cool and totally unique guild name of your own doesn’t have to be a challenge.
Keep the following tips in mind to create a list of options:
- Decide what type of guild name you prefer. While having the greatest number of options to choose from might seem better, choosing a mood and sticking with it can actually make it easier to find the perfect name. If you first decide whether you want a funny, self-deprecating, sinister, or another type of guild name, you can focus on finding words and phrases that convey the specific feeling that you want.
- Take inspiration from other guild names. While you won’t want to take a name that’s already in use, looking at others’ guild names can give you a better idea of the type of name you want. Looking at the names can also help bring new ideas to your mind.
- Look into the terms and specifics of your game. Guild names can be created by taking a common game term or character and making adjustments to it. For example, you can change the order of the words or add other words or numbers to form a unique phrase.
- Use our other guild name lists for inspiration. In addition to the list above, we also have several other guild-related name lists, including anime-inspired, assassin, and one-word guild names. Use an option from one of those lists or find an idea that you like and change it slightly to make it your own!
