Sandwiches are a classic grab-and-go food you’ll find in nearly every restaurant and store.
The only thing required for a food to be considered a sandwich is to put a filling between two or more pieces of bread.
That means that even hamburgers and hotdogs are technically sandwiches. Some people even argue that tacos should be considered sandwiches!
Making a sandwich opens a whole world of possibilities. It’s one of the few recipes that can include all the food groups singularly or simultaneously.
One way to make ordering, building, and sharing sandwiches more interesting is by giving them funny names.
We have the list of funny sandwich names for any sandwich lover. You’ll also find creative ways to come up with a few of your own.

How to Create Your Own Funny Sandwich Names
The possibilities when making a sandwich are endless. Taste, size, texture, and other components can be mixed and matched in an endless variety of ways.
If you’ve got a one-of-a-kind, inventive sandwich recipe in mind, or you just want to create your own funny sandwich names, keep these tips in mind:
- Include the number of layers or fillings. If you’re using several types of meats, cheeses, grilled vegetables, etc., take count of the fillings and make that part of the name. Examples might be the “7-Layer Sammy” or the “10 Spice Piglet Sub.”
- Use a clever rhyme or alliteration. Alliteration is when words that are side-by-side start with the same letter. This could be used to create a name like “Heather’s Honey Ham Hoagie.” You could also use rhyming to create a sandwich name, such as “Heavy on the Veggie” or “The Grand Slam Lamb.”
- Use puns related to the fillings or the sandwich’s physical appearance. Consider each filling, as well as the colors, aroma, or other unique traits of your sandwich. Then think of punny ways to use these words in phrases or name substitutions.
