Names incorporating current or past pop culture references such as "God Squad," "The Rock" and "Area 51" are also creative choices. Acronyms are another idea for creative youth group names. Examples include "Faith Used in Everyday Life" spelling out "FUEL", "Always Rejoicing in the Savior's Embrace" which spells "ARISE" and "Building Lives Around Sound Truth" spelling "BLAST." Names based on scriptures such as 3:16 for John 3:16 or Acts 29 can be popular choices as well.

Since the name is intended to represent the youth group in the church and in the world, it should be meaningful in addition to being creative. The name should reflect the faith-based purpose of the group as well as its identity as a group, while being age-appropriate. The name should resonate with the young people in the group and appeal to potential members as well.
