How to Create a K-Pop Group Name

K-pop group names can seem very quirky and unique, but there are often real logic and meaning behind them! For example, Seventeen stands for the 13 members, who make up three units and one team — 13 + 3 + 1 = 17. The girl group Twice got its name because its goal is to touch people’s hearts twice (through their ears and their eyes).

K-pop groups have powerful marketing teams behind them, but you don’t need help from the professionals to find the perfect name for your group. You also don’t necessarily need a deeper meaning behind your name — you can choose anything that sounds good to you! However, brainstorming different meanings can help you come up with the perfect name more easily.

You can make your name as obvious or cryptic as you want, but keep the following tips in mind while creating it:

  • Use acronyms. Acronyms are very common in K-pop group names; if there’s a phrase that you like, just take the first letter of each word to create your group name. You can even choose an acronym with multiple meanings to give your group a sense of mystery and depth.
  • Use English words. Most popular K-pop groups have names that either include English or translate well into English, such as Stray Kids, Twice, Red Velvet, and Dreamcatcher. You can name your group after random objects, foods, mythical creatures — anything you like. Make the name more unique by slightly altering the spelling of the word, combining words, or putting some numbers in place of letters.
  • Choose your concept. As you’re probably already aware if you’re a K-pop fan, groups tend to follow particular “concepts,” such as retro, futuristic, or supernatural. Though some groups do change concepts over time while keeping the same name, the group’s songs, music videos, and public image usually stick closely to the concept. Decide on a cool concept with your group and choose a name that reflects the concept you want to portray.
