“On the Twelfth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me… 12 holiday trivia team names…”
If you are a fan of Sporcle Live Trivia, you know just how important it is to have that perfect team name. This is true all times of year, but especially during the holidays. The right holiday-themed name not only gets you in the mood to celebrate the holiday season, but it also will set you apart from the Scrooges out there who couldn’t be bothered to think of their own clever title. “Bah! Humbug!”
Choosing the right team name can be a tough task at times, and that is why we are here to help. With some assistance from your crew and a little inspiration from this article, you should be on your way to picking that witty and clever team name in no time.
The Twelve Best Holiday Trivia Team Names
1. Jingle Balls
This name might be brimming with childish humor, but that doesn’t make it any less effective for a festive-themed trivia night. A reference to everyone’s favorite holiday tune, as well as an undeniably hilarious body part, makes this name perfect for those looking to get ahead of their competitors. After all, everyone will be too busy laughing or humming “Jingle Bells” to focus on getting the right answers.
2. The Naughty List
When you were growing up, your mom constantly told you that you needed to behave, do your chores, and mind your manners if you wanted to get onto Santa’s nice list. While this emotional blackmail worked on most of us for a while, the truth is that we eventually figured out that the kids on the “Naughty” list had a lot more fun! For Sporclers who don’t mind showing off their “bad” side, this could be the perfect team name.
3. The Holy Rollers
Give a shout out to the religious side of the festive season this year with a team name that can either show off your personal beliefs or poke a little fun at the people who take religion a bit too seriously. If you’re going to a church for your next big trivia night, or you’re playing with a few devout competitors, then you might want to be careful about the way you use this name. A festive brawl is the last thing any Sporcler wants!
4. The Only Gift We’re Giving You this Christmas is the Creeps
There are plenty of ways to show your “creepy” side at Christmas. From wearing one of those awful sweaters that leave everyone shuddering, to belting out festive tunes at work. We recommend pairing this particular team name with some suitably inappropriate outfits, designed to make your competitors nervous. If you have some makeup left over from Halloween, you could always combine your spooky themes with Christmas festivities for the ideal creepy combo.
5. Festivus for the Rest of Us
“Festivus” is a parody-based secular holiday that takes place on the 23rd of December, thanks to the incredible show, Seinfeld. It’s supposed to give families a break from the commercialism and exhausting pressures of the Christmas season. If you’re sick of listening to the kids fight over the Brussel sprouts, but you can’t escape tradition at home, at least you can still embrace a different idea when you’re out with your team of Sporclers.
6. Jolly Saint Hicks
We all love a good pun, right? This year, why not embrace your inner “Hick” vibe by throwing on a pair of dungarees wrapped in tinsel, and taking to the trivia season in style? This team name is a great option if you’re looking for an opportunity to dress up in some sweet festive outfits. All you need is a semi-classic St. Nick costume, combined with a few “redneck” accessories. Santa with a mullet, anyone?
7. Cheeses of Nazareth
Ah, Christmas, the perfect time for celebrating religion, remembering the birth of your savior (if you’re a Christian), and eating as much indulgent food as possible. If you Sporclers are all about the “cheesy” side of the festive season, then we recommend paying homage to this heavenly food with your team name. You can even add a few outfits to the mix if you like, that way you are sure to help everyone find cheeses.
8. Hanukkah Haus
Holiday trivia team names aren’t just for those that celebrate Christmas. If you’re looking for a great way to show off your personal religion while you’re answering trivia questions, then this could be the ideal team name for you. Extra points if you bring a few Hanukkah must-haves along to the bar. For instance, you could decorate your table with a Menorah and bring some dreidels to play with in between rounds.
9. The Roaring Chestnuts
Chestnuts roasting on an open fire are easily one of the most iconic images of the festive season (and our favorite line from that one song…). This team name is a great way to show your holiday spirit with a classic bit of imagery. Plus, the “roaring” part conjures up the idea of chestnuts with lion manes charging into battle against the opposing teams. How much more adorable can you get?
10. Silent Knights
Is your team the kind that stays hidden in the background, secretly and quietly writing down all the answers with expert precision, just to sweep up the grand prize at the end of the night? If so, then this team name could be ideal for you. Show your competitors that you’re the silent and deadly type. You don’t need to trash-talk and show off to walk away with the trophy – you’re going to beat your enemies with style.
11. Santa’s Helpers
The way you use this name will depend on the nature of your team and the kind of trivia night you’re attending. If you’re going to enjoy the experience with the whole family, then this title could be an adorable way to show off your family-friendly approach to quizzing. On the other hand, if you’re visiting an adult trivia night, you could take a raunchy approach and get everyone dressed up in saucy elf outfits. Make sure that you give the men on your team the same outfits, for extra hilarity points.
12. The Mulled Wine Militia
Finally, let your competitors know that you’re here to do two things: drink mulled wine, and win at trivia. If your team is known for being a little spicy at times, this could be the perfect way to show off your unique personality with a clever title. What’s more, if you’re really lucky, and the quiz organizer loves your name, he or she might even give you a free glass of the good stuff to get you started!
