Choosing names for a hockey team may need deliberation and a smart pick to ensure that it attracts attention. The names given in this story can guide you in picking a name for your team.
Hockey is one of the few team sports that has varied forms. It can be played on a field, on ice, wearing roller skates, and of course, on the streets. A popular sport that is played almost all over the world, the field form of hockey was introduced at the Olympics in 1908.
If you belong to a hockey team that has either been just formed or is in the process of relaunching itself, then you may be on the lookout for a name. In this story, we'll give you some tips on choosing names for your team and give you some suggestions.

Choosing Names

A team's name is probably the second most important feature of any sport, the first being the sport itself, obviously. This is so because it is important to have an identification for the team. Without a unifying team name, you will have individual players who will stand out and have a huge fan following but it may become difficult to ensure support for the team as a whole.
Can you imagine a situation where your supporters and cheerleaders are stuck because they don't have a name to call out? Here are some tips to help you select good names.
  • The name of a team often depends on the sport being played and the cultural background of the place the team belongs to. This will help garner attention to the team.
  • Ensure that all the team members agree on the name for the team. You don't want the team's name to be a reason for discord among team members.
  • If you want to choose a funny name for your team, be careful that while it evokes a smile, it does not make a mockery of the team.
  • You can also name your team according to the techniques of the game, the geographical location that your team belongs to, or some fantastical creature whose prowess impresses you.
Once you have zeroed in on a few names, you can also ask your supporters to send in their top choices from the selection and then make a final decision.
