Choosing fantasy football team names is yet another fun aspect of having your own make believe football team. However, taking time to pick a team name does serve a practical purpose. Many leagues have a plaque or trophy on which the name will be engraved for all to see, and to mock if the name is particularly bad. A fantasy football team name should project something, but that something is up to you.
Fantasy football team names can come from a myriad of sources. The traditional ones revolve around cities or favorite pro, college or high school football team. Pet names, nicknames, favorite bands, or a clever play on words are all possible derivations of the team name. Imagination is the only limit to the possible options. This article will help you choose fantasy football team names that will make your teams stand out.
The simplest convention to follow is how real life organizations name their teams. Use the proper name of a city, state or region coupled with a plural noun. Real life examples are the Dallas Cowboys or the Detroit Lions.
A phrase or pop culture reference is always a popular naming tactic. However, this is risky because by the end of the season the phase or reference can become stale and a point of ridicule.
Use a plural noun preceded by the article "The" to name your club. Examples include The Dominators, The Destroyers and so Cheap Mitch Richmond Jersey on.
If the league is from your place of employment, you can choose names specific to your department, job title or company. However, understand that people at work will talk about your team name. Therefore, don't use your team name to make negative statements about your job or your boss.
Don't choose a name that's too obscure, because you'll have to spend a lot of time explaining what it means, instead of managing your fantasy football team.
Be very conservative when naming your team if this is the first time you've played in this particular league. Even though the commissioner may say it's fine to name your team what you like, some members may find a racy name offensive and not invite you back next season.
