Originally planned as a PvE building game, Fortnite’s creators were inspired by the popularity of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds to create Fortnite: Battle Royale.
Their idea was a good one — though it’s technically free to play, Fortnite now pulls in over $3 billion per year!
Fortnite is known to be great for both casual players and pros, so it’s no surprise that there are over 200 million registered accounts for the game.
Among those 200 million players, there are plenty of clans to join, and you can also choose to form your own.
Clan names for Fortnite can be survival-related, battle-inspired, or dystopian. Some of the best names consist of only three or four letters.

How to Create a Great Clan Name for Fortnite
Below, we list a few tips to help you brainstorm and create your own Fortnite clan name.
- Think about words and phrases that relate to survival. Games that focus on survival typically inspire players to create survival-themed names. Make a list of every word and phrase you can think of about survival — from first aid techniques to essential tools — and try them out as Fortnite clan names. Even if you don’t think of one word or phrase that’s perfect, your list can give you a starting point to build your ideas around.
- Alter the ideas on our list. The Fortnite clan names on our list can be changed or combined to create unique options. For example, you could take several words from our lists of three- and four-letter names and link them together to create a phrase, or you could turn one of our longer name ideas into an acronym.
- Keep creativity in mind. To create an individual name for your clan that is unlike any other, think out-of-the-box. One way to ramp up your creativity is to look for synonyms for terms and phrases used in other clan names or appearing on your list of survival words. If you want to make the name even more personal, you can find a way to incorporate your name, favorite number, or another identifying fact into your clan name.
