Detailed Instructions If Needed

Each person, in turn, is asked to explain what his or her name means, or offer other hints about his or her name. The participant cannot say the actual name. If the group can't get it in about 45 seconds, have the person give the name, then move to the next person, or else the process becomes too slow for an effective icebreaker.
