Encore Family was originally intended to be called Tweens, before the network announced a naming contest in 1994 to allow the public to decide a name for the channel, which would end up being WAM!: America's Youth Network.
In 1997, "youth" was changed to "kidz".
Wam was relaunched as Encore Wam, as part of a rebranding of the Encore multiplex to bring them in line with the main Encore channel in March 2005.
On August 1, 2011, Encore Wam was rebranded as Encore Family.
