While money hasn’t always looked like the green bills and coins we use in the U.S. today, other forms of currency have been a part of daily life for around 3,000 years.
Even before the invention of metal monies, things like cowrie shells and livestock were used as currency.
Around the world, there are 180 types of currency recognized by the United Nations. Among those, 22 countries use some sort of “dollar,” so the U.S. dollar isn’t even the only currency with that name!

How to Create Great Money Team Names
Create a great money-themed team name using the following tips:
- Find uncommon words related to money. When you look up the history of money, you may find unusual words or phrases from which to build your team name. Obscure, no-longer-used currencies, terms related to printing money, or words that relate to currency outside of the U.S. can help you create something cool!
- Get inspiration from movies and songs. Much has been written and filmed about money. It’s easy to find inspiration for a money team name by researching movies and songs that focus on money, like Wall Street or The Gambler. You might find a single word that works as your team name, or you can find or create a short phrase.
- Look at several bills and dissect the symbols and phrases. All U.S. money is covered with symbolism and phrases. You may decide to create your team name out of one of the Latin phrases or symbols. You can even use the first or last names of any of the faces on bills, such as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln, to create your unique team name. Get creative!
