Tales of zombies have been around for centuries. The word “zombie” was first used in English in the early 1800s, but the concept dates back much further to West African culture and ancient mythology.[1]

While there’s no historical record of a real zombie apocalypse, those stories have not only stuck with us but become even more popular over time!

The first feature-length American zombie movie was released in the 1930s.[2] The decades since have seen hit films and series like “iZombie,” “World War Z,” and more.

Whether you’re playing a game as a zombie, writing about zombies, or playing a game where you fight to defeat them, we have more than 50 zombie team name options to choose from below.

How to Create Your Own Zombie Team Names

If none of the options on our list are perfect for you, keep the following tips in mind to create your own zombie team name options:

  • Choose a name that suits your purpose. Are you pretending to be a zombie or pretending to fight them? Essential details like this will have a massive impact on the type of name you choose! For example, if you’re fighting off zombies, you might use “Exanimate Exterminators” instead of just “The Exanimate.”
  • Consider synonyms. Zombies are known by many other words and nicknames. You can avoid these (and come up with a more unique name) by using synonyms. For example, you could use “exanimate” in place of more well-known terms like “walker” or “ghoul.”
  • Use your favorite books, movies, and TV shows for inspiration. There’s so much media out there either focusing on or referencing zombies! As you can see from our list’s examples like “Roamers” and “Hungries,” pulling names from these sources is an easy way to create great zombie-inspired team names.
