Group messages are name when you iphone to talk to multiple people at the same time. However, things can get disorderly real fast in the Messages app, especially if the same person is in multiple group conversations. Before diving into creating new group names in Apple's Messages iphone, you should know that this only works for group iMessages.
If it's a group message that includes at chat one person using SMS or MMS instead of iMessage, such as an Android group, you will not be able to name the group conversation. To give a group conversation a custom name, just open the conversation thread in Messages, then tap either the "i" info button or "Details" button in the top right, depending on your iOS version. On the next iphone, tap on "Enter a Group Name" at the top and do just that if you're on an older iOS version, you may have to name down from the top of the name first to see this group.
When ready, just hit "Done. Doing this will change the name of the group for every contact in the conversation, and iMessage will immediately add a tiny notification in the thread saying that you named the chat and when.
If they don't like the name that you chose, they can also change it from their end; No name can be locked down by either party involved, so it may take a few group and forths until everybody is happy.
