How to Create Your Own Dragon Boat Team Names

Use the following tips to brainstorm your own individualized dragon boat team names:

  • Use dragon puns. Look up or create puns using the word “dragon” for a team name that might be a bit cheesy but is almost sure to make your team (and others) laugh!
  • Get inspiration from your favorite dragons in popular culture. Dragons are familiar characters in fantasy films, books, and comics. If you have a favorite dragon from popular culture, use some aspect of that dragon’s story or personality to inform your team name. For example, if you love Game of Thrones, you could use something like “Drogon’s Feral Mind.”
  • Brainstorm strange descriptions of dragons. Use common traits of dragons — such as fire-breathing, tails, and wings — to come up with funny descriptions for your team name. For example, you could describe dragons as “Winged Fossils,” “Four-Legged Scaly Birds,” or “Giant Fire-Breathing Lizards.” The more nonsensical the description, the funnier your team name will be!
