How to Create a Good Eight-Member Group Name

We used the following tips when creating our list of eight-member group names, and you can also use them to inspire your own if you don’t want to use one of the names on our list:

  • Find groups of eight in pop culture. Eight is quite a large number, so this won’t be as easy as, say, a group of four — but you can find some eight-person groups in pop culture. Bands, movies, television shows, and books may include eight central characters or feature a group of eight people.
  • Use a word that sounds like “eight.” You can see examples of this in our list with names like “It’s F8” (“It’s Fate”) and “The G8” (“The Gate”). Eight rhymes with a surprisingly large number of words! If there’s a word you like that includes -eat or -ate, just substitute that portion of the word with the numeral “8.”
  • Use alliteration. Choose another word that starts with “E” and pair it with eight, such as our list’s examples of “Eloquent Eight” and “Exotic Eight.”
