Home / Classroom Icebreaker / Memorable Catchy Names

Memorable Catchy Names is one of the simplest icebreakers you can play, but it’s short and sweet! And it might be one of the most efficient ways to get to know other people better in an amusing way. The game involves going around in a circle, so it probably works best in a small or medium sized group.

Setup for Memorable Catchy Names

No set up is necessary! This icebreaker works great in a classroom or indoors.

Playing Memorable Catchy Names

Get into a circle. Instruct everyone to think about an adjective to describe themselves. The adjective should start with the same letter as their first name. For example, “Funny Fred,” or “Powerful Paul,” or “Clever Charlene.”

Have each person go around and announce their new name for the rest of the day. If you wish to make it a memory based activity, have each person introduce themselves, and then have each person afterwards introduce themselves plus everyone before them. The last person must try to introduce everyone in the room!
