Trying to come up with a scrum team name? In this article you will find some good examples of Scrum names that will inspire you to come up with your own. We have also categorized the names according to type, such as funny team names, good names, etc., to help you choose. We will also share a new tool at the end of this article that can point you in the right direction for finding a new name that is completely unique and created by you! Let's start with how to choose a good Scrum team name.

Selecting a scrum team name as a group

Is there a formula for selecting the best team name?

According to our research, the best Scrum team names have the following characteristics:

  • Memorable: Choose a name that is easy to pronounce and will stand out in the mind of the recipient. 
  • Pronounceable: The name should be easy to read and pronounce.
  • Uniqueness: A unique name adds a sense of belonging to the project.
  • Meaningful: Studies have shown that meaningful names are easier to remember.
  • Simplicity: The easier the name, the more likely it is to stay with your Scrum team for longer.

The best Scrum team names are easier to write, read, share and remember. 

In addition to the characteristics above, we found out that good agile team names can be divided into the following categories:

  1. Funny
  2. Awesome/Cool
  3. Adorable
  4. Captivating
  5. Special

You should be aware of these categories and decide whether the chosen name fits the spirit you want to introduce into the team.

How to brainstorm a good agile team name

Brainstorm Team Name Suggestions From Cards

Step 1 - Share the blueprint

When starting out, give your team a general idea of the kind of names they should come up with. Tell each person to provide up to 5-7 unique names based on the criteria that you selected.

Discuss the characteristics and categories of good team names (as outlined in the previous section). As a team, have an open discussion about which criteria you are more connected to.

Step 2 - Find word association with popular things

One of the most common practices is to associate team names with certain values and characteristics. For example, sports names could include wolves, dolphins, and knights. It might also be helpful to visualize the project goals, and get inspiration from different teams within the organization. Anything that will help you find a certain value that the team connects to.

Step 3 - Use an adjective, noun and a random word

A popular strategy is to mix a few words (an adjective, a noun, and a random word) to come up with a single one-word name. Just make sure it conveys the purpose of your scrum or agile team.

Step 4 - Use a team name generator

If you have a difficult time figuring out all this, you can just visit GoRetro’s team name generator and find some good team names in a matter of seconds.

Step 5 - Collect and vote

Once you have enough unique names, you should put each name to vote and try to match them to any of the above criteria (Memorable, Pronounceable, Uniqueness, Meaningful, Simplicity).

Ensure that the team name is acceptable by all members.
