Funny Name Tag Ideas

Often, in large group settings where an organisation or event is being hosted, it isn't easy getting guests to speak with each other. Although traditional name tags are useful, they are often conventional and common. Creating a funny name tag at your next event can make you stand out from the crowd.

Clever & Funny Phrases

Comedy often consists of bringing the absurd into a setting where it does not belong; therefore, creating a name tag that features an absurd statement can be funny to many people, enticing others to chat with you. Phrases, such as “Sweetcheeks” or “Dr. X," can entice people to ask you about your name tag.


Another funny name tag idea can be to create nicknames for yourself. At many parties or entire, those attending are required to make up silly names, often pertaining to a central theme. This game, also known as the “new name game,” also requires guests to only use the made-up name when discussing themselves.

Ask a Question

People often react more strongly to questions rather than statements; therefore, having a question on your name tag can help encourage people to answer the question, making it an excellent conversation starter. Include funny phrases, such as “Guess my height,” “What’s your name?” or “Want to know a secret?”

Questions can also be great for kids, allowing them to interact and answer questions on other kids' name tags. The tags can feature a variety of silly questions about the person who reads them, which can be a great way for the kids to make new friends.
