How to Create Your Own Funny Jersey Names

Still having trouble finding the right jersey name? Creating your own can be fun and can help you find a personalized option that fits you perfectly.

Use the following tips to help you brainstorm.

  • Take inspiration from your favorite team. Think of the team’s mascot or what it’s known for and build off of that. You can find great puns online for almost any word. For instance, if you want your jersey to represent the Bulls, you might use “Bull-ieve in Yourself” or “The Bull Monty.”
  • Use words unique to your chosen sport. Every sport has specific gear and terminology. Make a list of words that reflect your sport and write phrases using these words. You can also think of words that rhyme with an item on your list, find popular phrases with the rhyming word, and substitute it with the sporty word from your list. We used this technique to come up with ideas like “Swish on a Star” for basketball lovers and “I Glove You” for baseball fans.
  • Write about your favorite game or sports memory. Grab a sheet of paper and jot down a few paragraphs about the best game you’ve ever watched or your best sports-related memory. Next, highlight phrases that stick out to you or have the most meaning. Feel free to move some words around; you might have just found your perfect jersey name!
