    Hey guys, curious as to what your team names are, if you have any, how you spell/pronounce them, and if you have the team member names.


    So far I have 5, but that's bc I'm writing a fanfiction parallel to the canon line, and I had 3 teams at Beacon and two during the Vytal festival tournament. The three from Beacon are DYMD (diamond) from Daisy, Yeong (leader [I know don't kill me]), Mallory, and Diesel. ONCS (onyx), Olive (leader), Nettle, Coral, and Signe, and STAR (literally if you can't pronounce that I give up), Song (leader), Titan, Arya, and Raina.

    The two from the Vytal festival are STRM (storm) and LVDR (Lavender). While I will totes lay claim on DYMD and ONCS, the others y'all can use if you feel the urge. (team names yes, character names please no)


    What about the rest of you??(:

    Those are some epic names. Personal favourite is CFYR, but OMGA and LUNR are really cool too.

    In reply to TheG33kymonk

    Got a whole catalogue of colours that can also work as names, but I haven't assigned any to teams yet.

    In reply to TalaLeisu2

    For my team names, I tried to use names that reference animals with distinctive colors or color patterns, like tigers & peacocks. Otherwise, I just referenced mostly mythological beasts.

    Don't hate appreciate what about team GRIM

    G = Garrett Argent ( the Beowulf Alpha )

    R = Raven Moore ( the Nevermore )

    I = Isaac Tesla ( the Ursa )

    M = Mirror ( the King Taijitu )

    Each of them fights in ways that have been observed to be hard to understand and observe similar to the grimm so when they got the name after they finished the trials at the haven academy they felt that it was fitting because it matched their rule breaking personalities (the haven instructors hate them)

    They also carry shards of their respective Grimm's masks to further add to their name

    Garrett's semblance is right here http://roosterteeth.com/forum/rwby/topic/3206162?p...

    Cardinal is a bird yeah, but Cardinals - a position within the Catholic church - wear red as their uniform, so the word is closely linked with a colour. Juniper is a colour (green) by itself though, although it probably originated from the plant.

    When my group did our personal story team GRIM were a bunch of dust specialists for example Garrett not only had dust woven into his skin but his clothes as well and I thought they left pieces if you broke their fangs and masks off before they died.

    In reply to equinox-class_Grimm

    The names have to refer to something with a distinct color. If you read the wiki article about the color naming rule, they talk about how each name fits. Juniper is a berry, cardinal is a very red bird (male Cardinals anyway). Coffee is a drink with a distinct color, ruby is a color, sun refers to sunlight, auburn and bronze are obvious, and funky refers to disco (bright neon colors).

    1. A color
    2. Sound like a color
    3. Mean a color
    4. Makes people think of a color

    These are the rules for naming a RWBY character and team, but only Ozpin ,Salem (so far), and animals doesn't follow this rule.
