How to come up with unique team names
How do you name a team? There are many approaches for you, a teammate, a coach or a team parent can use to come up with some good team naming ideas. You can try a singular approach, or if the team name is so important, try multiple approaches at the same time.
Good Team Names Video
Secondary research on the Internet, books, etc.
Ok, so we might be a little partial to this approach. But, the whole idea with this technique is not to reinvent the wheel. Lists like the one above and the others on this site provide lots of options without a lot of time spent. Learn from other naming ideas, and either uses these exactly as is or with some personalization to your particular squad.
Other sources might include research team names from minor league teams, foreign countries, and smaller organizations in the sport of your choice. For example, for baseball, some of the minor league teams have fun names that are not as well known as MLB team names.
Brainstorm with friends or team members
Brainstorming can be an effective technique for solving a creative challenge. Set some ground rules like “no idea is a bad idea,” and “try to build off of others’ ideas,” to begin the process. Perhaps one person is selected as the brainstorming leader to keep things moving. In the early going, shoot for a volume of ideas.
Then, as your time dwindles down, establish a favorite by asking folks what their preference might be. To make the evaluation, and decide on the final name, you might also establish some judging criteria. That criteria might include aspects like: fun quotient, how well it reflects the group, memorability, and more.
Challenge your team
Challenge each team member to come back to the next practice with their favorites
If you’re running short of time, and just can’t fit in the necessary minutes to execute a small brainstorming session, challenge each participant to come to the next practice with at least three ideas.
Then, at that practice, review the names and have the team vote on which name is the winner. Consider offering the player who comes up with the winning name some small prize.
