191 Best Assassin Guild/Group Names Listed (Curated & Ranked) + Generator

Video game controller

We think of assassins as people who commit murder, specifically the murder of someone politically or culturally important.[1]

For example, John Wilkes Booth was President Abraham Lincoln’s assassin.[2]

However, did you know the first assassin group was actually a religious group? They were known as the “Hashashim,” “Hashishin,” or “Hashashiyyin,” and targeted Crusaders during the medieval period.[3]

Assassins are dangerous and highly skilled, so when creating a name for your assassin guild, you’ll probably want to choose something aggressive — but you can also choose something ominously funny or ironic.

Below, we list name ideas for assassin guilds. You can also scroll past our list to find a name generator and tips for creating your own guild names.

How to Create a Great Assassin Guild Name

As noted above, most assassin guild names trend toward intimidation, but there are a few different ways you can go with your guild name, from funny to frightening.

Even if you choose a funny name, consider incorporating dark words like “mayhem” and “destroy.”

Assassins do deal in murder, after all! Even if your name is ironic or darkly humorous, using words like this will keep it tuned in to your group’s purpose and theme.

Regardless of the tone you choose, you can also find inspiration from many places to create your assassin guild name, including books, movies, TV shows, and games (either the one you’re playing or other favorites). Put a spin on a title, favorite character, or fictional organization.

You can also think of things that are as threatening as assassins — like zombies and black widows — and incorporate those into your name, as seen in our list above with examples like “Black Widow Brigade.”
