How to Create a Good Lunch Group Name

As you can see from our lists above, fun lunch group names and “Lunch and Learn” alternatives are numerous.

Creating a good name goes beyond finding words related to food — you can tailor your lunch group name to the field you work in, the interests of your friend group, or the topic of a particular lunch-and-learn session.

Of course, all of the names you consider should be appropriate for the environment, be it work, school, or a totally casual meeting between friends.

Even at work and school, that doesn’t mean you should entirely avoid humor! If your lunch group is lively or your company has a more casual office culture, use puns and relatable jokes to create a fun group name.

The essential tips to keep in mind when naming your lunch group are:

  • Keep it simple. Short and catchy names will make your lunch group easy to market if you’re hosting a lunch and learn session. Casual lunch groups will also appreciate fun and straightforward group names over options that are complex and wordy.
  • Keep it fun. No one wants their lunch break to be dull! Choosing a fun name will make your group more excited to meet up.
  • Keep it clean. Even if you’re just meeting with friends, it’s usually a good idea to avoid profanity or offensive language in your group name.
