The group was formed in phases:
- On December 2015, six different configurations were offered to be chosen from.
- On January 2016, the unit compositions were revealed, and people were asked to submit names for them.
- On March 2016, the choices for unit names were revealed.
- On April 2016, the chosen unit names were revealed.
Due to the image presented by the members, many of the name submissions had a dark or gothic feel to them.
Guilty Kiss' name was meant to symbolize the slightly grown-up and little devil-like image the unit has.
Other highlighted submissions are "RYM," and "Chrom Cross."
Their group introduction goes: 「愛こそ全て、Ｇｕｉｌｔｙ Ｋｉｓｓ」"Ai koso subete, Guilty Kiss", which translates to "Love is everything, Guilty Kiss".

- Other polls also determined the names of the sub-units: CYaRon!, AZALEA, and Guilty Kiss.
- The sub-unit's voice actresses all have "Ai" in their names. This is the origin of their unit introduction "Ai Koso Subete" or "Love is Everything" in the 7th episode of It's A Trio! One, Two, Sunshine!!.
- Guilty Kiss became popular among fans due to the Riko and Yoshiko pairing in season 2 Episode 5.
- In their version of Hop Step Waai! Mari calls Riko "Lily/Lili/Riri" during "Riri, shoukan". In the anime version, Mari did not call Riko "Lily".
