How to Create Cool Mercenary Group Names

Create a cool mercenary group name using the following tips:

  • List the words and phrases that come to mind when you think of a mercenary. Word association is always a good starting point for making team names! Does “mercenary” make you think of money, greed, intimidation, or some other word? Once you have a list, browse through it to see if anything seems like the perfect fit for your team. Try changing some of the phrases and putting several single words together that you wouldn’t typically try — sometimes thinking out-of-the-box leads to the perfect name!
  • If you have a favorite mercenary character from a book or film, use them in your group name. It is easy to incorporate a name or nickname into a group name. Simply adding a descriptive word to a name will create a group name. For example, you could use John Seeger from the movie Mercenary for Justice and call your team “Seeger’s Soldiers”.
  • Use your first name or the first initials of your group members to create a mercenary-themed acronym. Ask each person to submit a word (or two in case you need to make changes while creating your acronym) that they would like to use for their initial. You can then arrange the letters and words to create the perfect mercenary-inspired acronym.
