The process of naming something can be quite tedious. Perhaps you’re a perfectionist who can’t settle for something mediocre, or perhaps you want something that reflects your coworking space branding. The truth is room naming can be challenging, but it can also be very fun.
Below we’ve listed a couple of conference room name ideas for you to take inspiration from in the process of picking out the best room names for your coworking space.
How to choose Conference room names
When choosing room names it is important to figure out what sort of theme you’d like to go for. You can go in all kinds of directions, but the most important part is that you want the room names to be easily remembered and organized, which is why it’s best to stick with a theme rather than randomly assigning different names to each room.
If you stay within a theme, your coworking space will have a fun atmosphere that your members will enjoy and be able to remember for a long time.
💡Tips on choosing conference room names
- Pick a theme: Pick one that echos your company culture and atmosphere and that has to do with your company culture.
- Expandable theme: You want to make sure your theme is expandable and that you never run out of options in case you grow your coworking space and need more room names.
- Get everyone involved: If you’re stuck on what you should name your room a fun idea might be to try to get your members involved. Maybe have them vote on their favourite room name, or have them create their own conference room name ideas.
- Have fun with it: Room naming can be one of the most fun parts of creating your coworking space, so make sure you enjoy it.
💬Conference room name ideas and themes
1. Pop culture
A great way to name your conference room is after pop culture references. Pop culture can mean anything from famous singers to famous directors. This can work well if the members in your space are younger and are more likely to care about pop culture aspects like celebrities, but it can also be a fun room naming theme.
With celebrities you can always also go even deeper with your theme, for example, you could name all your conference rooms after rock bands such as Aerosmith, AC/DC, The Rolling Stones, Led Zepplin, Arctic Monkeys, and so on.
Another idea is to name each conference room after famous action stars like Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Liam Neeson, Daniel Craig, Bruce Lee, Dwayne Johnson, Jackie Chan, and so on.
Try to have fun and figure out what might be best suited for your coworking space.
2. Inspiring Women
A great idea is to name conference rooms after inspiring women. This can shed light on women throughout history who had a great impact on humanity and also show your members that you care about feminism and want to advocate for women.
Some great examples could be Zelda Fitzgerald, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Oprah Winfrey, Amelia Earhart, Rosa Parks, and Michelle Obama, among many others. You will never run out of great inspirational women to name your conference rooms after.
3. Famous landmarks
Another great theme you could go for is room names after famous landmarks. Everyone knows their fair share of landmarks, so you can guarantee that they’ll be easy to remember and also have a fun flair to them.
Some room names could include the Eiffel Tower, Taj Mahal, Burj Khalifa, Machu Picchu, The Great Wall of China, The Stone Henge, The Colosseum, and so on.
4. Go international
On par with landmarks, another idea you could choose is room names after certain countries. This could be a fun way to include countries that your members are from and make them feel even more connected to your workplace. Try finding out what the demographics of your space are like and where people are from, and naming conference rooms after those places.
If that doesn’t interest you, you could also try naming conference rooms after countries or cities with a thriving coworking space scene. For example, London, Tokyo, Berlin, Madrid, New York, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Paris, Sydney, Shanghai, or Toronto.
This is a great idea if you are a big movie buff. The possibilities are endless. You can try naming your conference rooms after comedy, action, romance, or even horror movies. You could even choose one specific universe or saga and expand from there. For example, you could choose the Harry Potter movies, or even the Marvel cinematic universe. Whatever you decide, it will be a sure-fire way for your members to get excited and to remember your conference room names.
Some other conference room naming ideas related to movies could be a Disney theme, where you name everything after famous Disney animated movies such as Hercules, Beauty and the Beast, Tarzan, Pinocchio, Tangled, and many others.
6. T.V. Shows
If you’d prefer to stay away from big blockbuster movies, you could try going the other way for your room naming, and try different T.V shows. Everyone nowadays is familiar with popular T.V. shows. You could use this to your advantage and try naming all your rooms within the theme of one famous tv show.
These could include, Friends, The Office, The Simpsons, Star Trek, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Game of Thrones, Breaking bad, and so many others. The great thing about this is that you have endless possibilities on what to choose from, and everyone in your space is bound to know a thing or two about these T.V shows, increasing the likelihood that they’ll familiarize themselves with your space more.
If you’d rather stay away from things such as mass media, famous people, and geography, a great way to elegantly name your conference room is after nature. For example, you could try conference room name ideas related to fauna or flora. This is another great and simple way to make your conference rooms stick into people’s minds.
For flora, you could try something like Maple (for the maple tree), Oak, Lily, Daisy, Fern, Ivy, Lilac, and so on. For fauna, you could try kangaroo, tiger, dolphin, swan, zebra, wolf, and more.
This is a great simple way of naming your conference rooms. If you don’t want to spend too much time thinking about what to name your rooms, a great solution is to name them after colours. This will prove to be easy to remember and will stick in people’s minds very quickly, so they’ll be able to associate a colour with that specific room.
Mythology is a fantastic theme for room names. It is vast and you can focus on one piece of it, or be as broad as possible. Since there are so many different factors you could try naming your rooms after mythological gods, mythological creatures, mythological characters, and the list goes on and on.
Some room naming ideas could include all the greek mythological gods such as Zeus, Hera, Aphrodite, Apollo, Ares, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Dionysus, Hephaestus, Hermes, and Poseidon.
10. Famous authors
A classic way to go if you love literature, or even if you have a lot of writers in your coworking space could be to incorporate famous authors in your room naming process. This is also a good idea, as it is easy to recall.
Some famous authors you could name your conference rooms after are William Shakespeare, Margaret Atwood, Charlotte Bronte, Franz Kafka, Jane Austen, George Orwell, Maya Angelou, Sylvia Plath, and many more.
