Water is essential to life. It makes up more than 70% of the Earth’s surface and up to 60% of the human body.
In the U.S. alone, we use about 400 billion gallons of water per day!
Beyond the human need for water, did you know that over 90% of living species on Earth call the oceans home?
And less than 20% of the oceans have been explored, meaning there’s a lot we still have left to learn about aquatic life!
Below, we have more than 60 team names inspired by Earth’s vast waters and aquatic life, plus tips to help you create your own!

How to Create Your Own Water- or Ocean-Themed Team Names
Use the following tips to create your own water-inspired team names:
- Get inspiration from aquatic life. There are tons of plants and animals found in or near the ocean, and any one of them can work for your team name or team mascot. If you don’t already have a few favorites to choose from, look up a list of oceanic creatures online for ideas!
- Think of terms related to marine hobbies and activities. Simple names like “The Dolphins” can be great, but you might also want to look into oceanic activities for team name ideas. Hobbies like sailing, surfing, and scuba diving have unique equipment, terminology, and practices that can inspire your team name.
- Use the thesaurus! It can be challenging to generate a long enough list of words to find the perfect name for your team. A thesaurus will help you expand your options and find more unique ideas. For example, a search of “nautical” in the thesaurus brings up more than 20 options, including “seafaring,” “aquatic,” “oceanic,” and “seagoing.” You can use these to create names like “The Seafarers.”
