The Savannah Bananas. It’s all of the things. It’s silly. It rhymes. It’s infinitely marketable. Our city’s Coastal Plain League baseball team has one of the zanier nicknames in all of sports. But the Bananas don’t have the market cornered on creativity. Here are more of the most fun team names in all of sports.
NC Dinos | Baseball | KBO
The 2020 Korea Baseball Organization champs have one of the best – no, the best – mascot in all of sports. All hail Swole Daddy.
Vegas Golden Knights | Hockey | NHL
Cool name. Cool logo. Cool colors. The Golden Knights are kings of the NHL name game.
Seattle Kraken | Hockey | NHL
You can’t go wrong naming your team after a legendary sea monster.
Orlando Solar Bears | Hockey | ECHL
This is word play at its finest. And the buff, shades-wearing bear logo ain’t bad, either.
Stetson University Hatters | NCAA
Pace University Setters | NCAA
Because who doesn’t love a punny name?
UC Santa Cruz Banana Slugs | NCAA
This bright yellow, slimy creature makes for a menacing mascot.
Washington Football Team | NFL
When Washington dropped its controversial nickname in 2020, it pivoted to the wildly generic and mildly hilarious Washington Football Team. But it’s actually not bad. It has European soccer club vibes – and we’re all for it.
Capital City Go-Go | Basketball | NBA G League
Go-Go is a playful nod to the music subgenre that got its start in D.C. in the 1960s.
Delaware Blue Coats | Basketball | NBA G League
This Revolutionary War-inspired name pays homage to the 1st Delaware Regiment.
El Paso Chihuahuas | Baseball | Pacific Coast League
Because nothing says intimidating quite like a Chihuahua!
Binghamton Rumble Ponies | Baseball | Eastern League
What, exactly, is a Rumble Pony? Don’t get caught up in the details. Just enjoy this glorious team name.
Montgomery Biscuits | Baseball | Southern League
An anthropomorphized buttermilk biscuit for a mascot? Yes, please!
Rocket City Trash Pandas | Baseball | Southern League
The Rocket City Trash Pandas celebrate Huntsville, Alabama’s storied status as a hub for the aerospace and defense industry. The result: a glorious pairing of the city’s longstanding nickname with a slang term for raccoons.
Norwich Sea Unicorns | Baseball | New York-Penn League
Because naming them the Norwich Narwhals would be too easy. Seriously, though, the Sea Unicorns’ are pretty epic.
