’80s Trivia Team Name Generator

How to Create an ’80s Trivia Team Name

Haven’t found the perfect name on our list? Don’t have a cow! The following tips will transport your team right back to the 1980s:

  • Reflect on major events and trends of the 1980s. Create a team name based on popular 1980s fads, items, or events that happened. You can draw inspiration from politics, fashion, food — basically anything! If the original name or phrase does not work as a team name, change it by adding or removing words or tweaking the actual word itself.
  • Use the names of your favorite 1980s singers, songs, actors, or TV shows. Even if the 1980s are before your time, you’ve probably seen or heard of at least a few popular TV shows or heard iconic songs from that period. If you and/or your team have a favorite, create a team name with it. If you have several favorites, list them so your team can take a vote to choose the best.
  • Look up slang terms that were created in the 1980s — or create your own! Use words that were coined or made more popular in the 1980s like “airhead,” “bite me,” “bogus,” “gnarly,” or “tubular.” You can even make up your own term that defines how you and your team feel about the 1980s.
