Remember when you were a kid and you would play make believe with your friends or siblings? You would create your very own world where clan names didn’t matter and where you were in charge and could do whatever you wanted. I think this is a large reason behind the popularity of some of the social aspects of online games, such as MMORPGs and MOBAs. It’s not enough to pretend that you are yourself an adventurer or a superhero; the real joy comes from feeling like you’re part of a larger world.
This is the thing that you were building with your brothers and sisters, and this is the thing that guild leaders (by whatever name they are called) tap into when they put together a group of gamers, complete with a core philosophy, a set of rules, and maybe even a consistent role-playing universe. Part of the fun is good clan names.
This extends to much more than just games with a fantasy element, though. Any game with a social element (and that’s pretty much all of them these days) can allow for this sort of thing: a way for players to carve out a space of their own within the game, label it, and inhabit it.
With an ode to the good ‘ole days, I’ve compiled hundreds of cool clan names to use for CoD or CoC. With the help of Google and some creative friends, there are some exceptionally good options below that will help you come up with your very own name. I’ve also updated this article to include sweaty clan names, funny clan names, fortnite clan names, and for those who like Game of Thrones, there are some Game of Thrones clan names too! If you’re looking for clan name ideas, you’ve come to the right place!
Considerations for Clan Names
Clan names were introduced by the Europeans in the 17th century. A clan is a group of people that share a common ancestor and family name. They are often united by a common geographical or other traditional affiliation to an area. The name could be derived from what they do for a living, where they came from, or how they act. A clan can either be about race, tradition, blood-feuds, or family heritage.
NOW, we don’t have to be that deep about choosing clan names, but it should fit your personality.
Perhaps you would want to name your group after something of personal experience to the players, such as where you all grew up. It’s easy to create clan names that way. Or maybe, if the world of the game is distinct enough, you would want to name it as an homage to that. For instance, in a World War II game, you could name yourself after some variation of the Dirty Dozen, the Big Red One, the Inglourious Basterds, and so on.
Gaming clan names by their very nature are cool, and Clash of Clans names are no exception. Good clan names are hard to find. This article will go into detail on exactly how to come up with your own clan names and how to check whether your Call of Duty or Clash of Clans clan name has been taken or is available. We will also cover some quick tips and creative ideas to help you in the process. Your clan members will be grateful!
“We shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be, we shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender.” – Winston Churchill in Call of Duty.
Call of Duty Clan Name Availability
If this is the first time you’ve played Call of Duty, you will need to sign up in order to register your clan name with the servers. They will basically check the name and determine whether it has already been taken or if it’s available. This is where there’s a big trade off to early adoption of new titles: on the one hand, early adopters have to put up with a myriad of patches and tweaks as things are nerfed, balanced, or sometimes just fixed. Sometimes it’s days of play-time before the game is something enjoyable. But the upside to this is that those who like to add a social element to their play (in this case, through the clan members) have pretty much their pick of available names.
There are a few tips to coming up with your very own username that you should keep in mind.
1. The length of your clan name must be 20 characters or less. So make sure you try to come up with a short option so that it fits.
2. You cannot use any special characters such as exclamation points or dollar signs.
3. The only character beyond numbers and letters you can use is an underscore.
4. Have a few clan names as backup in case your first choice is taken. Given how popular the game is, you will likely run into clan names being already taken. Be patient on this, too, because there’s no going back from clan names. If your first few choices are already taken, don’t wig out and put random gibberish out of frustration, because next thing you know, your clan is forever LKDSJFexlalkjahd.
TIP: If you find your best clan name is already taken (as many good clan names are), try to add an underscore so that it becomes different enough but still has the same general meaning. Clan names with an underscore are still easy to read.
When you’re ready to sign up, you can do it through your iPhone, Xbox, Playstation, Wii, etc. However, if you want to, you can also head over to the CoD online registration page.
Clash of Clans Name Availability
If you’re here because you want to sign up for CoC and want to get some good clan name ideas, you’ve come to the right place. If you’re interested in checking which clan names are available, you will have to use the app on your iOS or Android device to see if you can use it.
Simply download the CoC app on your iPhone, iPad, or Android device and from there when you open it up you will see a sign up page where you can come up with your own name. Keep in mind that the character limit for CoC is 15 characters, so a bit less than CoD. You will have to be even more conservative when coming up with your own clan name.
Change CoC Name
If you already have a Clash of Clans name but want to change it to something different you can do so by emailing Supercell. Note that you can definitely change it if your initial name is offensive and you want to change it to something that’s not. This isn’t to say that you should just make your Clash of Clans name something offensive right out of the gate (who knows, that might make you more of a target), but if you realize that your clan name had certain implications that hadn’t occurred to you when you chose it… say, for instance, that you hadn’t said it aloud… then know that you don’t have to be stuck with that forever. Still, don’t plan on changing your clan name; try to start out with something you’ll be proud of. There are certainly plenty of clan names available!
1. Head over to CoC on your iPhone or Android.
2. Tap on settings, then Help and Support, then Report Issue, then Other Problem.
3. You will see an email pop up where you can send a message to Supercell, the creators of CoC.
4. In the email request that they change your clan name to the new one and send the email.
5. You should get a message back in a few days that says they changed your clan name.

Fortnite Clan Names
Fortnite is a video game that has been in production for many years. It has seen multiple changes in development, but the changes have been for the better. The game can be played on other devices like personal computers and consoles. The main mode of play in Fortnite is called Battle Royale and it pits 100 players against each other.
One of the fun things to do in Fortnite is to play with friends. This is a team-based game that requires strategy and cooperation from teammates. The game can be played on virtually any device, which means players can play with each other in real time, regardless of where they are located. Developing good clan names is part of the fun.
The game is very fast-paced and requires players to be able to think on their feet. The island that they play in is constantly shrinking, which means the tactical decisions become more important as time goes by. Players are always being bombarded by weapons from other people, forcing them to make split-second decisions about what they want to do next.
Fortnite’s battle royale game mode is made for simple, catchy names. It’s also a good idea to keep your name short and sweet like your tags so people can easily read it while they’re in different places on the map. Many Fortnite players just use their own first or last name as their clan name and tag which is a great option because it’s simple and easy to remember.
The best fortnite clan names are usually ones that can be pronounceable in all languages. For names like “Champions” or “Legends” I’ve actually seen people spell them as “Xhampions” and “Xhalegens.”
Here are Fortnite clan names never before seen:
|Apathetic Victors||Fearful Navarch||Prime Desperados|
|Ball of Fire||Fussy Power||Putrid Preys|
|BeastlyStrategy||Guilty Precision||Razing Goblins|
|Birth Treason||Hawk Tinders||ReapingMachine|
|BloodThunder||Heroic Hooligans||Rumbly Ambition|
|Bloody Combat||Heroic Studs||Sangre Slurps|
|Champion Moguls||Hulking Kudos||Slayer Romeos|
|Clan of Skins||HustleHeroin||Sparker|
|Claret Coils||Jagged Unit||Squeakin Hog|
|Concealed Squad||Kingstock||Stony Punks|
|CrackingCats||Loyal Chamber||The Vision|
|Crazy Vipers||Majestic Conquest||ThrobCrashers|
|DesiredExile||Martial Sorcerer||Viking Distress|
|Dumfries Vikings||Mutual Platoon||ViscousVillains|
|Endure Strategy||Ninja Temptress||Vital Gore|
|Engaged Victors||Obnoxious Force||WarlikeForces|
I hope you enjoyed this master list of gaming clan names and got some great ideas going for the future. Whether you prefer cool clan names, funny clan names, sweaty clan names, Game of Thrones clan names, or Fortnite clan names, there’s a clan name for you!
CoD Black Ops and Beyond
While Clash of Clans has maintained its throne of honor on mobile devices, the Call of Duty franchise continues to explode and grow at an exponential rate. Right alongside it, the “clan warfare” feature evolves and ages gracefully as the internet grows up around it.
Call of Duty is just as social of an experience as it’s always been, and now that the next entry in the franchise–Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare–has been previewed and hyped, we can start getting excited for all of the new features that will soon be incoming?
Mechs and robots? Check and check, thanks to Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare. Space? Space combat? Just watch the trailer and see for yourself, but it might be that we’re seeing some even bigger changes in the Call of Duty landscape than were delivered in the futuristic Advanced Warfare. Expect all of your favorite multiplayer modes to return, as well as support for clan warfare, on November 4th, 2016. That release date is going to sneak up on us before you know it, so if you’ve yet to register your clan in CoD: Advanced Warfare, or you have one up and running, get ready to transfer it to the new game, in order to keep your clever clan name!
Meanwhile, we’ve had a good handful of months to dig into the brutal multiplayer of Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Released in November of 2015, this is the twelfth game in the main lineup of Call of Duty titles, and it’s a well-reviewed doozy. Clan recruitment and operations have already been running strong since release. Looking to see which clans are tearing it up? Maybe you’re late to the game and you’re looking to join one. Hit up the CoD clan forums for Black Ops III and get your voice out there; dozens of clans are recruiting, and you’re missing out on a part of the social CoD experience by not doing so.
Eager to sink your teeth into more Clash of Clans? The 2016 update is set to make many improvements to the game, many of them a direct response to a few slight missteps made during the December 2015 update. An out-of-whack player economy and more difficult gameplay–a result of Supercell trying to fight cheaters–resulted in a bit of mild uproar from Clash of Clans veterans, but the improvements we’re seeing this year are bringing gems back into line and making modest improvements to the gameplay.
