Tips On Choosing Your Team’s Name


Congratulations on your newly created team!

If you already have a team sponsor, chances are that they would select the team name if they haven’t already. But if you are getting the chance to choose your team name and the colors associated to your team, congratulations again. It’s going to be an interesting exercise. Here are a few tips to help you make the process fruitful without cutting down on the fun.

1.      Include your entire team.

2.      Prepare a questionnaire and ask all team members to fill it. You can include questions like:

a.      Should the city name be included in the team name, like NY Giants?

b.     Should the name be fun and funky, like New Orleans Baby Cakes?

c.      Should the team name be something that portrays strength, like Brooklyn Tigers?

d.     Should the team name relate to an incidence or year, like Cincinnati Reds?

e.      Should the team name include a person’s name, like Cleveland Browns?

 

While most of these questions are to guide a thought process, you can include more questions you deem relevant. The questionnaire can include some more options like:

 

f.       Suggest a name for the team.

g.      What do you think should be the primary and secondary colors of the team (which would go in the logo, jerseys, gear etc.) and why?

3.      Once the team members have submitted their response, make a list of all names suggested. Shortlist names from the suggestions.

4.      Now it’s time for the team management to give in their suggestions. It would indeed be a good gesture to take the sponsor’s suggestions as well.

5.      Discuss the top suggestions with the team and the management.

6.      If players are the ones taking the final call, pick the top two suggestions and take a vote.

 

Voila! You have a name now. 

 

Choosing the team colors essentially follows the same process, but this can be a little tricky. You need to pick colors that make the team look sharp and energetic. Picking up colors that are dull and flat will have a similar vibe and you wouldn’t want that. Do consult a professional when making the final decision of team colors. The professional will also help put together the logo and other design details for the team.

 

Wishing you all the best and a happy start.
