Are you crushing it on Trivia Night at your local watering hole? Sure, you’re already known for never getting a music question wrong. And your best friend has anything sports-related on lock. But, if your team name is boring, you’re missing out. A good team should win naming awards, too. It should be the kind of name that, even if the other players hate you, they can’t help but snicker when they hear it. If you’re one smart cookie, who is disappointed with her quiz time team name, we get it. The key to good team names is always in the pun. But, in the heat of the moment, it’s hard to come up with something truly unique and pithy.

Of course, once you have scored a team name, you need to make sure you’re actually prepared to kick ass on trivia night. Luckily for you, ScaryMommy has your back. Whether you need to brush up on Disney trivia or Harry Potter Trivia, we’ve got your back. Taking on a television trivia night? We have trivia for Friends, The Office, and How I Met Your Mother. If geography is your JEOPARDY downfall, we totally get it. So, we collected a ton of geography trivia, too. Sometimes, you just need some random trivia or fun facts to browse while waiting for your beer (or your coffee) or sitting on the loo. We’ve got that, too.

We’ve collected some of our favorite options so next time there’s a tournament, you can offer some useful insight for a team name — of course, you still have to talk Amy out of using “Four Non-Blondes,” again. (Insert hard eye roll.) These team names offer everything from a look into the real reason you’re there (to drink, duh) to a peek at your Harry Potter fandom. There are even some options to show off just how much you love Alex Trebek. What witty and smart name will you choose? We have about five dozen options to consider.
