Before 2015, I don’t think any of us imagined that a hip-hop musical about Alexander Hamilton would receive critical acclaim and persistent popularity, especially five years after its initial production. But Lin-Manuel Miranda not only imagined the potential—he realized it. Since its premiere, Hamilton: An American Musical has inspired a cultural revolution with its diverse and modern take on historical figures and events that are anything but diverse and modern.
Now that a live stage performance of Hamilton is available to stream on Disney+, the public at large can watch the musical with its original principal Broadway cast, headed by Miranda himself. As Hamilton’s popularity grows (at one might call a non-stop rate), so too does the public’s desire for Hamilton-based trivia. No? Just us? Well, in the event that you’re unsatisfied with the usual trivia team name lists, don’t worry! We won’t leave you helpless.
Revolutionary Hamilton Trivia Team Names
1. Young, Scrappy, and Hungry
Hungry for trivia, that is!
2. Raise a Glass to Quiz-dom
The circumstances may not be as dire in trivia quizzing as they are in revolution planning, but your glory in victory will be just as legendary.

5. We’re Not Throwing Away Our Shots
Shots as in those you might be served at pub trivia, but also shots as in chances! You better lose yourself in the moment, because this opportunity comes once in a lifetime, after all.
6. Practical Tactical Brilliance
If your team has a right hand man as resilient, ingenuitive, and fluent in French as Hamilton, then you’d better get that player off the bench and into the game as soon as possible.
7. Venerated Pub Trivia Veterans
Many think of George Washington as a humble man, a born leader. But humility doesn’t answer trivia questions, so might as well leave it at the door.

Smuggle the correct answers into your brain like Hercules Mulligan smuggles information from the British government—and daughters from their unsuspecting parents, evidently.
9. History Has Its Eyes on Us
A certain modern major general may argue that competing in a trivia game isn’t as important as fighting for your country’s freedom, but we beg to differ, George.

This game of trivia is as good as over as soon as you enter the pub (or Zoom call).

Let the sarcasm flow through you, like you’re writing a letter of grievance to your sworn frenemy.
18. We Hope That You Learn

This team name might not win you any favors with the “revolutionary set,” but we know one monarch who’ll be particularly pleased.
