Yes, along with atypical office aesthetics; varying color palettes; and chic decor; cool office meeting room names can add a little fun and humor to the work day. Often based on a specific theme, a meeting room name is more than just a name - it’s part of the company brand; it speaks to the personality of the company.
Let’s explore ten possible company themes and creative room names that would inspire employees and clients to connect with the company.
Theme: Zodiac Signs
With twelve zodiac signs to choose from, there’s room to play. For instance, perhaps the company has three founders - each of their signs would represent a room. Or, the room names could be chosen based on the characteristics of each sign. Taking the zodiac theme a step further, instead of using the sign as the name, use the name of the birthstone for each month.
Names for meeting rooms: Virgo or Peridot; Scorpio or Topaz; Taurus or Diamond; January or Garnet
Theme: 70’s, 80’s + 90’s Children Shows
This theme may be suitable for a gaming company, a graphic design agency, or even an e-learning company. If you’re of a certain age, children shows from “back in the day” were the best! They were colorful, had awesome sing-along songs and intro themes, and taught valuable lessons.
Cool room names: Zoobilee Zoo; (Where is) Carmen Sandiego; Captain Kangaroo; Bill Nye (the Science Guy); Reading Rainbow; The Electric Company
Seemingly, almost all “tech” companies and marketing agencies indulge in a variety of coffee. Why not incorporate that into the personalities of the meeting room names? The name of a robust, caffeine-laced roast could represent a room meant for high-level, high priority meetings. Opposite that, the name of a light roast could represent a room for casual brainstorming or project reviews/updates.
Office room names: Death Wish; Kicking Horse; Big Bang; Waky, Waky; Morning Bliss; Bright Light
Theme: What I Want To Be When I Grow Up
Adding a personal touch to meeting rooms, why not name them after the professions staff members thought they would go into. This has the potential to spark conversations, build camaraderie, inject a little humor, and offer the opportunity to share something personal, without being too personal.
Name ideas: Nascar Driver; Outdoorsman; Astronaut; Unicorn Breeder; Strawberry Farmer, Pilot
Theme: Dream Destination
While this theme could lend to many companies, it would be great for those focused on hospitality and tourism. Or, perhaps, influencer marketing and branding companies. This could easily start conversations and spark ideas; forge new friendships and a culture of encouragement may be born, as other will likely want to see you reach your goal of visiting your dream destination.
Cool office names for destinations: Seychelles; Tonga; Syros; Dili; Borneo; Abaco
Theme: Things That Make Me Happy
Everyone wants to be happy. What makes you happy is specific to you, which leaves an abundance of room for creativity when it comes to this theme.
Naming ideas: Sunshine; My Spouse; Red Wine; Sleep; Puppies; Cartoons
Theme: Designers + Artists
Perfect for companies focused on style and fashion, influencer marketing, branding, and/or lifestyle. Designers and artists play huge roles in our lives, as many of us enjoy specific labels, whether apparel or footwear. Others love the aesthetics.
Room names: Basquiat; Rhianna; Wang; Diddy; Banksy; Issey
Theme: Bad Decisions (modeled after Facebook’s “Horrible Life Ideas”)
Life is full of ups and downs; all learning experiences. We all make mistakes and bad decisions. We have all done things we’re not so proud of. Might as well share these experiences with others, letting them know they are not alone in living life.
Conference room names: DUI; Soup With A Fork; No Gas; Loaned Charger; Locked Out; Butt Dialed
Theme: Amazon Favorites
Amazon has taken over the world and we live in it. We have become accustomed to getting what we want, when we want it. Amazon has spoiled us with quick ordering, quick fulfilment, and quick delivery, in addition to subscription orders. How about having meeting rooms be represented by Amazon favorites.
Ideas for names: Scott; Gain; Echo; Papermate; Alexa; Dash
Theme: Favorite Hobbies
Many of us like to make room in our busy lives to add a hobby or two. Something outside of the hustle and bustle of the businesses we run or our regular 9 to 5; something that brings enjoyment without “payable” hours being attached.
Room names: Jogging; Woodcarving; Glass Blowing; Archery; Lego-Building; Thrill-Seeking
