Sam has been in charge of coming up with team names for her first and second graders who play soccer and softball after school.

If you're stuck on coming up with a name for your sports league or group, then look no further. This comprehensive list has the best team name ideas—from funny names to cool and clever ones. There are also some powerful ones at the bottom if you want to go the conventional route.

Steal a name from this list or let the names inspire you to create your own.

Tip: A good team name does not guarantee a win. You will still need to practice. However, if you do end up losing, but you have a funny name, you'll be remembered fondly for your creative efforts. No one will remember a winning team with a boring name.

How to Come Up With Original Names

  1. Choose an animal or strong mascot: Pick a strong wild animal or a valiant profession, such as a warrior, knight, ninja, etc.
  2. Pick an adjective: The most common adjectives are colors, but you can also use bellicose adverbs or adjectives, such as fighting, rioting, rumbling, etc.
  3. Go with a pun: If there is an inside joke you want to use, go for it. Or come up with a pun by choosing a normal name and then changing one of the words into a funny word. For example, you can choose something regular like The Soaring Eagles, and change Soaring to "soreing" because you'll be sore from practice.
