Sparta was the capital city of Greece’s Laconia district and ruled through military power between the 9th and 2nd centuries BCE.[1]

How to Create Your Own Spartan Team Names

If you’d prefer to create your own Spartan team name, use the following tips to help you brainstorm:

  • Use words that convey courage and strength. Sparta is most well-known for its warriors, as portrayed in films like “300” and “Troy.” The Spartan army was a central part of society and became one of the most formidable armies in the ancient world through its discipline and skill. Rather than choosing words directly related to Spartan culture, you can choose a generally strong and brave name for your team. For example, our list includes “The Valorous” and “The Victorious.”
  • Research Spartan history and culture. If you don’t already have a comprehensive knowledge of Sparta, that’s okay! It’s easy to find facts about ancient Sparta, its notable people, and Spartan culture online. For example, our list includes Cynisca’s Chariots, which we came up with after reading a primer on Spartan history and learning of Cynisca’s Olympic victory.
  • Get input from your team. Since you’re looking for a history-based team name, it can’t hurt to have more minds at work to find the perfect option! Ask each team member to provide a few suggestions based on their research. Then, the group leader can choose the best name from the bunch or take a vote.
