What is a Sorority Family?
A Sorority Family is a group of sorority women who have mutually selected one another to mentor and support one another in an “official” capacity.
What do I mean by “official?”
In general, your Sorority Family is recognized by your sorority chapter and you have gone through the basic steps to becoming a Sorority Family such as: picking the perfect Sorority Big or Sorority Little, giving your new Little gift baskets, and participating in Sorority Big Little Reveal.
Who makes up a Sorority Family?
The most simplistic Sorority Family is made up of a single Sorority Big and her Sorority Little.
But Sorority Families can get very complex once you start including your Big’s big (your Grand Big or GBig), your Sorority Twin, Sorority Cousins, your Sorority Aunt (your Big’s twin), your own Sorority Little, and so forth.
Regardless of how extensive your Sorority Family tree is, you’re most likely going to get close to your primary Sorority Family members: your Big and your own Little or Littles.
What is a Sorority Family tree name?
A Sorority Family tree name or sorority lineage name is a name you give your Sorority Fam to help identify yourselves among the other Sorority Families in your chapter. It is like a sports team name, but cuter.
How do you come up with a Sorority Family name?
Coming up with a new Sorority Family name involves the entire Sorority Family, so you should text, call, or arrange a Sorority Fam get together at someone’s apartment or even a coffee shop to brainstorm a new family name.
Some good ways to start brainstorming would be to think of things everyone in the Sorority Fam has in common.
Same favorite color? Same favorite movie or TV show? What about college major or minor? Sports teams? Animals? Pattern?
And don’t worry, if you’re stuck you can scroll down the blog post to get the list of 77 Sorority Family Tree name ideas.
What is a good Sorority Family tree name?
A good Sorority Family name is one that every girl in your Sorority Fam can be happy with.
There’s truly no guidelines to what your Sorority Family name can or can’t be (well…it needs to be G to PG-rated), so you and your Sorority Fam really have unlimited possibilities.
Does it matter if my Sorority Family has a family tree name?
Honestly, no. It is does not matter if your Sorority Family has a family tree name.
Some, if not most, sorority chapters do not recognize Sorority Family tree names in an official capacity. Instead, it is simply a name you give your Sorority Family to make you feel more cohesive and closer to one another.
For instance, your Sorority Family tree name can influence future Sorority Big Little themes or the stitch letter design for your Sorority Fam.
For example, if your family name is the Tie-Dye Fam you may always have some sort of tie-dye pattern tied into future Sorority Big Little Reveals like a Tie-Dye sheet or a Tie-Dye box (depending on the style of the reveal). Or your family’s stitch letters could be tie-dye.
Another example, if you Sorority Fam is the Sunflower Fam, you could make it a tradition to give newly-initiated Sorority Family members a bouquet of sunflowers after the initiation ceremony or at Big Little Reveal. You may have your family stitch letters have a sunflower pattern to create a more cohesive look for family stack photos.
A Sorority Family tree name can also be helpful if you post a photo on Instagram of your Sorority Family and want to create a cute caption around your Sorority Family getting together like, “so happy we got to add to the Diamond Fam tonight!”
Can you change your Sorority Family tree name?
Yes, you can change your Sorority Family name!
Because family tree names are not officially recognized by most, if not all, sorority chapters, you’re more than welcome to change up your Sorority Family name as much as you want. Just be sure if you change it, you keep your entire fam in the loop!
You may also find the desire to change your Sorority Family name if there’s been a change in the structure of the Sorority Family, like someone dropping out of the sorority, the Sorority Fam got split up/cut ties with one another, or someone graduated from college.
