So, you’ve joined the office softball league or ended up on a 3-on-3 basketball team for the league at the Y. Maybe you’re just playing fantasy football for the first time. Whatever the occasion, throughout your life you’ll find yourself tasked with coming up with a funny team name. Combining initials or naming yourself after the local sports team? Lame. You want something fun and semi-original, right?

The names below are pretty funny and most are inspired by pop culture. However, did you know that there are some pretty weird team names already licensed? One wildly inappropriate (and super immature) option? Idaho’s own Butte Pirates. In Michigan, there is a team called the Watersmeet Nimrods. Sure, one could argue that in Biblical times a “nimrod” was a hunter. Except, ya know, we don’t live in Biblical times anymore. It is almost as odd as the Flint Tropics. (“Everybody love everybody!”) Our absolute favorite odd team name, though, is the Dunbar Poets. Will they win? Probably not. Will they lose valiantly? Also, probably not. But, will they write enthralling epics about their athletic misadventures? Duh. There is a whole world of wildly weird and inappropriate names out there. From the “Purple Pounders” (huh?!) to the “Beaver Dusters.” While we do not recommend you use any of those names, we do have some other equally hilarious suggestions.

These are some of the funniest and best team names out there. But, warning: Most of these aren’t kid-appropriate or adults only so they’ll just go over their heads.
