Whether you work in the accounting department, a tax office, or an accounting firm, chances are that if you’re an accountant, you’re working in a team. But does your team have a name, or are you just — well — “those people in accounting?”
Whether using a name year-round or just for a fun event, this article has lots of ideas for funny accounting team names. We’re here to help you out with an inspiring list of funny and clever accounting team names that will build camaraderie and give your team the pizazz it deserves.
What to Consider Before Choosing a Name
Accounting might get a bad rap for being dry and boring, but if you’re an accountant, you know that’s not true. Even so, the work has its ups and downs. Having an awesome name for your accounting team can help keep your motivation up, even when the numbers aren’t cooperating.
When choosing your accounting team name, here are a few helpful hints to keep in mind:
- Make sure the spirit of your team name is in sync with your workplace environment. For example, if your company is highly formal in nature, you may want to avoid some of the more suggestive accounting team names.
- Keep your team name inclusive to everyone on the team, and avoid names that exclude a particular gender, sexual orientation, race, or nationality. Remember that your accounting team name should bring everyone together!
With that in mind, let’s get to the list of accounting team names — because who says accountants don’t know how to have fun?
