How to Create a Good Hawaiian Team Name

As seen in our list above, Hawaiian team names can either be made from inspiring and hopeful phrases in ‘Ōlelo Hawai’i or based on general aspects of Hawaiian life.

Keep these team name types in mind, along with the following tips if you’d like to create your own unique name:

  • Avoid generic names and stereotypes. Unless you’re very much in favor of a simple name, skip generic names like “The Surfers” or “The Palm Trees.” You don’t have to avoid common symbols of Hawaii entirely, but put a twist on them — for example, number 46 on our list, “He ʻumi ʻāpana pā” (meaning Team Hang Ten), references surfing but is more unique.
  • Get inspiration from plants, animals, and landmarks. Compared to the 48 contiguous states, Hawaii’s environment is much different and features many plants and animals which reflect that environment. (For example, did you know that Hawaii only has one native land mammal, the Hawaiian Hoary Bat?) You can call on these unique natural features, plus landmarks like Diamond Head, to inspire your team name.
