Gn has 2 meanings
1. What does gn mean in messages?


Gn is a quick way to wish others "goodnight" when ending a text or online conversation before going to sleep. For example, when concluding a late night convo with a friend, you might say, "Getting late in this time zone, gn!"

Typically, people send gn when it's late at night, but for all those night shift workers and nap enthusiasts, they may try to sneak in a mid-day gn. Although, in these cases, gn probably doesn't make much sense (gd?).

Gn is one of many ways to leave a conversation to go count sheep. Other options include G9, gnite, and GNE1 (when there's a crowd).


Thanks for talking, gn!
U2, sleep well

2. What does Gn stand for?

Get naked

GN is an acronym that stands for "Get naked," which is a command given to get a person to remove his or her clothes. It is typically used online during a video conversation or in text messages when sexting.

The acronym was introduced in the 1990s as online messaging and texting became prevalent and is most often used by teenagers and young adults. It is typically sent by a male to tell a female to take off her clothes, but it may also be used in other types of relationships. While some people may like to receive the attention that comes with the acronym, most people think it's very creepy so you should avoid using it.


He's a perv, he told me to GN when we were texting last night
