Halloween hasn’t always been a time for loading up on candy. At one time, people dressed in costumes not to impress their friends and neighbors in hopes of sweet treats but to hide from ghosts!
Additionally, the original “Jack-O’-Lanterns” were carved into turnips, beets, or potatoes rather than pumpkins.
Some things about the holiday have remained the same, though, like the involvement of cats, which once took part in a fortune-telling ritual during the Celtic Samhain festival that predates Halloween.
Our modern Halloween rituals involve parties, parades, and trick-or-treating.
Halloween team names for trivia and other activities can play up the scary side of the October holiday or be purely fun.

How to Create a Great Halloween Team Name
A great Halloween team name can be horrifying, humorous, or recall classic Halloween legends.
Brainstorm with your team to create a cool Halloween team name using the following tips:
- Get spooky Halloween inspiration from movies and songs. Putting on a Halloween playlist or watching your favorite Halloween movies is a great way to get inspiration for creating a unique Halloween-themed team name. You can use the name of a song or movie, a lyric, a character, or a quote and adapt it into a name that’s perfect for your group.
- Think about scary and mythical creatures. Ghosts, ghouls, monsters, and werewolves haunt our minds during the Halloween season — and they make great subjects for team names! Instead of using just a single word as your team name, add a spooky descriptive word to create a chilling phrase like “The Lost Souls.”
- Look into the history of Halloween. Halloween’s history can be a great source of less common words and phrases that may make a unique Halloween team name. Consider forgotten traditions and the origins of the holiday for ideas.
- Ghost stories and urban legends may provide inspiration. From Casper, the cute and friendly ghost, to the horrifying headless horseman, everyone loves a good ghost story or urban legend. Whether the stories are widely known or have been passed down in your family, a word or phrase inspired by a spooky story can make for an awesome team name.
