1990s Trivia Team Name Generator
How to Create a Great 1990s Trivia Name
In addition to their reputation as great years, the 1990s are full of fantastic inspiration for team names.
From popular culture to fashion to significant world events, there are a lot of things to name your team after, which are instantly recognizable as relics of the 1990s.
We list some ways to get inspiration below, which we also used when creating our list.
- Music: The 1990s had a very wide range of music trends, including the grunge movement of the early decade, R&B, and bubblegum pop. Get inspiration from bands like Nirvana, icons like Britney Spears, or one-hit wonders like Chumbawamba’s “Tubthumping.”
- Movies: Movie characters, fictional organizations, movie titles, or memorable moments and quotes can inspire your team name. Many iconic films of the 1990s still hold up, such as “Clueless,” “Titanic,” “Pulp Fiction,” and “Groundhog Day.”
- Television: The 1990s had some huge hit television shows that are still beloved today, such as “Friends,” “Seinfeld,” and “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.” As with movies, you can get inspiration from characters and memorable moments — or even episode names.
- Fashion: Name your group after your favorite trend! Like music, ’90s fashion was diverse and wide-ranging, from minimalist looks like slip dresses to fully color-coordinated ensembles to grungy flannels. You can also get inspiration from particular garments like parachute pants or Dr. Martens.
- Gadgets: If you were a kid in the 1990s, there are undoubtedly some toys and gadgets that immediately come to mind when you think of the decade, like Furbies and Tamagotchis.
- News: The 1990s saw the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope, the debut of the World Wide Web, the opening of the Mall of America, the signing of NAFTA into law, and more. Look up a timeline of the decade and take your pick from many major news stories.
