How to call a team?
It would seem that it may be easier to name the team, the team is there, the “medal plan” is ready, it remains only to choose the appropriate name. But, it is over this that the organizers and participants often break their heads. Such a seemingly simple thing turns out to be almost unbearable for many, so dozens of “salutes” and “rockets”, “victories” and “meteors”, “starts” and “zeniths” are born. And, like, quite good initially names turn into already broken clichés. But there is always a way out, and exactly how to name the team, or rather, how to properly name this or that team and how not to call it, we will talk today.
How to call your team?
Here we will give the basic principles of how to name a football team, as well as any other one related to team sports: basketball, volleyball, hockey, handball and many others. The basic principles of naming a sports club are three: the native place, the company owner and the sonority of the name. Of course, these three principles can be quite successfully combined.
Principle of terrain
You have noticed that many football clubs are called by the location of the team. There are hundreds and thousands of examples of this. Here are the most famous European clubs named according to this principle: Milan, Barcelona, Porto, Liverpool, Hamburg, Monaco. In Russia, recently, too, the fashion for such names has gone, and one cannot say that it is bad to call the club after its native city. Here are Russian examples: “Rostov”, “Krasnodar”, “Khimki”, “Nizhny Novgorod”.
There is also a similar principle of naming clubs based on a region of origin. It can be a region, a region, a historical region, even a district. Examples of district names can be seen in England. So, the London club "West Ham" is named for the area of London. In Russia, such names can be found among amateur clubs. So, in my native city of St. Petersburg, the teams “Vyborzhets” and “Porokhovchanin” play the city championship, named after the Vyborg district and the Powder region, respectively.
As for the names of football clubs in larger regions, the names of such clubs as Karelia (Petrozavodsk), Alania (Vladikavkaz) can serve as a good example in Russia.In the first case, this is the name of the republic - Karelia, in the second - the historical region of Alanya. There are also clubs where some natural peculiarity served as the basis for the name - for example, a river flowing alongside: “Terek” (Grozny), “Irtysh” (Omsk).
This principle offers the greatest opportunity for creativity. The most important thing is that the name be sonorous and memorable, but, at the same time, not beaten and not worn down to holes. That is why it is not necessary to call a team, for example, “Zenit” or “Ruby” - there are very, very many of them - besides, this name will condemn you to constant comparison with clubs that are already known in almost all of Europe. It would be much better to come up with a less frequent, but beautiful name. For example, "Emerald" or "Diamond", if you really do not want to deviate from the topic of precious stones. And you can emphasize the strength and power of the future club and call it, say, “Titan” or “Giant”.
Recently, the names of famous heroes of the past and present, as well as the ancient gods, have become popular, so you may well like such names as Hermes or Mercury, which indicates swiftness, Mars or Ares, that talks about strength and determination. By the way, a good idea could be the use of space names.For example, such as "Altair" - after all, translated from ancient Arabic, this means "flying eagle" - is not it a name for an ambitious team? The principle of sonority of the name is perhaps the most important principle for how to name the school team.
Very often the team is called by the society or organization that founded it. So, in Russia and in many Eastern European countries, teams have obvious signs of belonging to one or another of the state structures. Here are the most vivid examples: “CSKA” (army), “Dynamo” (police), “Spartak” (previously - Komsomol organization), “Lokomotiv” (railway). Often the name is dictated by the sponsor. Here are the clear signs of the teams belonging to organizations working in various commercial spheres: Gazovik, Neftyanik, Builder, Torpedo, Chemist.
There are sports where the names of teams completely copy the names of sponsors. Such, for example, cycling, where you can often find long names, because it contains the names of all the sponsors of the team. The most memorable: "Serramenti PVC Diquigiovanni-Androni Giocattoli" - Italian-Venezuelan cycling team,which this year is called much shorter: "Androni Giocattoli-Venezuela", which says that the name began to use the combined principle: location and sponsor company.
Agree, well, when there is an opportunity to combine some principles. The most striking examples of such names are found in North America. Surely many sports fans have such names as hockey clubs like New Jersey Devils (Devils from New Jersey), Pittsburgh Penguins (Pingvins from Pittsburgh), Los Angeles Kings (Kings from Los Angeles "). And basketball "Chicago Bulls" ("Bulls from Chicago"), "Golden State Warriors" ("Warriors from Golden State"), "Phoenix Sans" ("Sun from Phoenix"), etc., etc. .
In Russia, this method of naming clubs is not very popular, but it is sometimes found, although it is mainly in such sports as American football and rugby. But precisely this principle is used in the names of KVN teams. If you do not know what to call the KVN team - look at the most vivid examples: "Ural dumplings", "New Armenians", "Odessa gentlemen", "Four Tatar" - see how you can successfully enter your hometown, country or nationality.According to this principle, you can also go if you decide to establish a new team of the Club, which are cheerful and resourceful.
