Fantasy Football Team Names: Game of Thrones Edition

1 of 4

    Part of the fun of fantasy football is making up a stupid team name. Game of Thrones author George R. R. Martin believes there are parallels between football and the world he created. New York fans should be happy to know that the Giants—as the "heroes" of the NFL—get the honor of being the Stark family.

    If you want a fun team name that confuses your friends who don't have HBO or read fantasy, I have some options for you that may be worth considering.

    Here is the Game of Thrones edition of how to best name your fantasy football team.

NFL Team Names

    The first option is to go with the name of your favorite (or least favorite) team. Here are a few options for team names, ranging from pretty obvious to a little bit obscure:

    The Patriots of Casterly Rock

    The Dothraki Broncos

    The Tennessee Tywins

    Tyrion and the Giants

    The Wolf and the Lions

    In the Game of Football, Eagles Win or They Fly

    Khaleesi's Colts and the Luck of Ygritte

    The Mance Raiders

    The Davos Seahawks

Current Players and Coaches

    Current players and coaches make for perhaps the biggest set of options. Some players have names that just scream Game of Thrones, while some others require a little more thought:

    House McCoy

    Guy Whimper Fell

    We All Know the Imp Loves Rex

    The Targaryens Lost it in Tebow Time

    Terrell Owens Always Pays His Debts

    Roddy and the White Walkers

    Joe McKnight's Watch

    Ser Gio Brown

    Mitch King in the North

    Always a Starks in Lambeau

    Eli Manning the Wall

    House Tulloch

    The Dire Wolfert

    Mark (Secretly Loras Tyrell) Sanchez

    A Khalif Who Cannot Pass-Block is No Khalif

Hall of Famers

4 of 4

    Lastly, Hall of Famers and all-time greats make a timeless option for naming your Thrones-based team. Here are a few options, ranging from people you will definitely know to a few you might have forgotten:

    A Song of Rice and Favre

    Johnny Unitas the Seven Kingdoms

    Curtis R. R. Martin

    Grand Maester Parcells

    Warren Mountains of the Moon

    Emilia Clarke Always Shows Her Y. A. Tittle

    Marshall Faulk of Essos

    Harold Red Waste Grange

    The Dragon's Gregg of the Forrest
