Sports Team Names

Sports Team Names – Looking for some ideas on what to name your team?  What best captures the spirit and essence of your group of players?  Should it be a popular name like “Wildcats,” “Tigers,” or “Eagles”?  Or, should your team name be something a little off the beaten path like “The Mad Ants” or “Red Storm”? Or, maybe if you’re playing in an intramural or adult league, you’re looking for something clever?

Sports Teams Nicknames imageOne common technique is to add “Ladies” as a preface for a womens’ or girls’ team.  Also, many teams add a team color to a nickname to make it more specific and distinct, e.g. “Eagles” could become “Golden Eagles” or “Knights” becomes “Scarlett Knights.”  Don’t be afraid to consider adding an adjective to the noun.  For example, “Eagles” becomes “Screaming Eagles.”
