Thinking of the perfect name for your team is usually seen as a very challenging task to take up. For one (and most importantly), the name has to be the very reflection of the type of team that it is, two, it has to be simple enough to remember, and three, it has to be liked by all the teammates. With so many factors to consider, we understand that naming the team must seem like a gargantuan task, but it definitely does not have to be that way. If we at Plentifun have anything to do about it, then by the end of this article, not only will you have the perfect name for your team, but you will also be fully equipped to formulate the perfect team name all by yourself.
In the first section, we will be giving you a brief insight into some of the team names for different types of teams, and in the second, the factors to consider when naming a team will be listed forth.
What Type of a Team is it?
There are many aspects and conditions that help decide on a creative team name. The team name largely depends on factors such as the nature of the team―sports, cultural, corporate and project, a local group, etc. There are many ideas that you can use to customize the team name. If it is a sports team; you may include aggressive names, such as ninja, fighters, warriors, champions, heroes, invaders, daredevils, and names of fierce animals or rebellious entities.
If you want to name a dance or a cultural team, you need to use mild words that would express the group’s way of thinking and acting. Some examples are golden girls, lily pads, dancing stars, and so on.
What is the Reputation of the Team?
The team name should complement the reputation of the team. You should not name your team the ‘Top Runner’ if you hold the last rank.
Use a Corresponding Name
The name should also relate to the team. If it is a cultural team, it is not a good idea to choose a name like ‘The Fiery Fighters’. If it is a corporate team, it should be named something which would match business standards. Just ensure that you do not use a name, word, or phrase that sounds similar to another team’s name.
General Other Factors
► It is a good option to use a name that attracts attention, and sounds active and impressive.
► Adding a color’s name to the team name is a very good idea, and is used by most teams. Some examples include Blue Angels, Red Dragons, White Tigers, Black Panthers, etc.
► You can even modify a team name to make it sound all the more chic. Use your creativity in modifying names, for instance ‘boys’ may be changed to ‘boyz’, ‘girls’ to ‘girlz’, and ‘hots’ to ‘hotz’. You may alter the words that end with ‘s’ to ‘z’.
► Another option is to use an abbreviation of the words that you desire. Some examples are BOA (Best Of All) and VAN (Very Aggressive Notions). You may similarly create short forms of a particular combination of words that you like.
Suggesting team name ideas and choosing team names are the decisions of the members and the team leaders. They have to know that the team name has a significant impact on the team’s reputation and goodwill, and changing names frequently may project instability and disarray in the team. So choose an awesome name at the onset and watch your team climb the ladder of success.
