A good way to ease tension from the stressful day-to-day operations of a bank is to have a funny team name for your group of coworkers.
However, it’s not always easy to come up with a creative name. If you need help thinking of clever banking team names for you and your colleagues, we list some considerations and sample names to help you brainstorm.
What Makes a Good Banking Team Name?
You know your bank’s environment best. At some places, you may be able to get away with names that are more PG-13, while at others, it may be best to keep it G-rated.
We have marked several names with an asterisk to designate names that may push the boundaries at some banks and office environments.
Also, keep in mind that a team name that alienates or puts down a group of your colleagues will probably not have great long-term consequences for office morale, or for your job. Your name should not discriminate against any particular race, gender, religion, nationality, sexual orientation, or other identity.
With that in mind, you can never go wrong with a good pun or some rhyming or alliteration. To personalize the name, you can base it on the company slogan, a term your boss always uses, or common industry lingo.
If you’re struggling to come up with a bank team name, we have lists of potential names below that are categorized based on industry terminology and common industry acronyms.

You can use any of the following names for your banking team, or simply use them as inspiration to come up with your own unique name.
