Good, Funny Trivia Team Names for Every Occasion

Trivia Team Names

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.

Perennial Losers

Zero Facts Given

Question Everything

What the Fact

Fact Naturally

Knowledgendary

Thirstysomethings

Trebek Forever

YOLO Contenders

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.

Dirty & Offensive Trivia Names

Remember that no matter how gross or inappropriate your team name is, the host has to read it.

Know Job Artists

Sleazy Does It

I Gotta Quiz

You can go crazy with this dirty quiz team name:

  • Quiz in my Pants
  • Quiz On Your Face
  • Drink Your Own Quiz

Fact U

Team #68

You do us and we’ll owe you one.

Esoterotic

Fact Sluts

Some other ideas for this NSFW trivia name:

  • Data Sluts
  • Info Sluts
  • Really, sluts of any kind

A Null Set’s Not Empty Sets

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.

Red Wingmen

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

Causal Sex

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.

Cumming In First

Funny Trivia Team Names

My trivia team naming tip of the day: Stay away from jokes that make sense on the page but are harder to get out loud. Whine and Dine may be a witty and apt description of your team, but the room most likely won’t get it.

The Team of the Future of the Past

We used to be very promising.

And In First Place…

Or, of course, the more humble version of this trivia team name: And In Last Place…

Dumb Chumps

Grabasses

Don’t Quiz on the Electric Fence

This is a funny trivia team name on a few levels.

A hilarious trivia team name if you’re playing trivia in a bar.

Quizzards of Quaverly Place

Quaranteam

Bubble or Nothing

Fatten the Curves

The name is for your more zaftig of trivia teams. Or, it could be for those that gained the “quarantine fifteen”.

  • Bob Dole Stole Our Pen
  • Don’t Kissinger and Tell
  • Jimmy Carter’s Nuts
  • FDR After Dark

Awesome, Cool, & Fun Trivia Names

Not every name has to be some pun or portmanteau. And if you don’t know what portmanteau means, you’re why your trivia team loses.

Known Commodities

Wonder Boys

Factcident of Nature

Vincent Price Is Right

Chill Communication

Hot Bots
