I’ve wasted nearly a decade hosting trivia nights, so when it comes to trivia names I’ve seen it all. The best names for trivia teams are quick jokes or puns that also help create a sense of team identity.
Are you subtle and witty? Crass and brash? Or just a bunch of drunks?
Here is our collection of trivia team names to help your squad establish their presence on the field of mental combat.
The Best Trivia Team Names for 2021
Is your trivia team a same-name-every-time gang or a new-name-every-time gang? Both approaches are valid, though one is harder to decide on, the other harder to keep up with.

The Ramones of Trivia
It doesn’t have to be the Ramones, it really can be any band. But let’s face it, the Ramones just feels right.

This might be the dirtiest, most obscure thing I’ve ever written. But I can’t fully explain it in good taste.
Let’s just say that this is true mathematically, as well as for a certain style of lovemaking.
I think Well Read Wingmen could be an even better filthy trivia name. But it isn’t for every room.
You have to be playing with folks smart enough to get the pun, and raunchy enough to like it.
Playing for Peeps
The dirty category wouldn’t be complete without some sex trivia team names. As far as the name goes, there’s nothing casual about it.
