How to Create a Good Team Name for Work
Create your own team names for work using the following tips:
- Consider how specific you want to be. Team names that only make sense to someone with particular work expertise or personal background may not work for your team. For example, naming your team “Wii Work Hard” might not be funny if your audience isn’t familiar with video games; likewise, a name that draws on one specific element of marketing theory may be confusing to non-marketers in your company. General names usually work better unless your team/company specializes in one area. It can be awkward when a judge or your boss is reading your team name out loud, and you can tell they don’t get the joke or pun.
- Keep it office-appropriate. Stay away from funny team names that are racy or include any objectionable language. No matter how casual and open your work environment is, it’s always a good idea to maintain a sense of professionalism, so you don’t alienate any team members (or give others the wrong impression of your team).
- Don’t put others down. Everyone at your company is on the same team, so even if you’re creating a group name for a competitive task (e.g., which team has the best pitch for a new product line), you shouldn’t choose a mean-spirited name. Aim to uplift your own team without tearing down others. Additionally, using your team’s name to mock or exclude someone of a different gender, race, nationality, sexual orientation, or gender identity can hurt others, cause division, and result in you and/or your team getting in trouble.
