How to Create a Great Harry Potter Team/Group Name
With multiple books, films, games, and spin-offs to use for inspiration, there are hundreds of possibilities when creating a Harry Potter team or group name.
Keep the following tips in mind as you brainstorm:
- Get inspiration from Harry Potter’s mythology and terminology — or create your own. Harry Potter takes place in a world of wizards and magic, and a long list of terms was created just for the series. Look over these terms and their meanings and find one that your team loves, or see if you can create a new Harry Potter-inspired phrase (like a magical spell) that is entirely yours.
- Combine several of your favorite Harry Potter words. Choose some of your favorite words and names from the world of Harry Potter and make changes to them or string them together to create a unique name. You can combine several words to create a personalized one-word name or start with Harry Potter-related terms and then add a random descriptor to create a new phrase.
- Use a character name to lead your team. If you have a favorite Harry Potter character, name your team after them. For example, Harry’s Hooligans is one option. The more obscure the name you choose, the more unique your team name will be, so consider choosing a minor character that made a lasting impression on you.
