Picking a name for a clan is not something to rush into, particularly if the system does not allow you to change it in the future. Simply deciding whether to pick something funny, cool, serious or something that fits the game you are playing is tough. You do not want to go to the effort of creating a clan to think of a cooler one in a few days time when it is too late to go back. That is where a clan name generator comes into the equation.
This clan tag generator will take the difficulty out of having to come up with ideas for a name. Click the button below and the tool will attempt to generate a name based on whatever requirements that you have.
Most clan names will be abbreviated in game by placing a clan tag in front of your online gamertag. When you use the gaming team name generator below to come up with some suggestions, you will see an attempt to come up with a 3 or 4 letter clan tag automatically that will fit the random team name that it generates.
If you have any feedback or would like to suggest a specific game that should be supported by this tool, let me know. I will continue to add support for new games that will generate usernames and clan names based on material and language used for a particular game universe.
4 Letter Clan Tags Generator
A lot of online games will have native clan support. This means that brackets, often square, will appear in front of a players name to show what clan they belong with. Generally, the limit is 5 characters. When you generate a clan name using this tool, it will give you a clan tag suggestion in the box below that matches the team name that it has provided for you.
If you need to extend it, here are some tips that you can use to increase the length of the tag or do make it sound better.
- Use the first 2 letters of the words. “Nasty Ranchers” could become [NARA]
- Use the first X letters of either word. “Nasty Ranchers” can become [NAST] or [NASTY] if it is a 5 letter clan tag.
- Use the letters of the syllables of each word. Sometimes the words might have a lot of syllables and this makes it easy to create an extended clan tag.
Regiment Tag Generator Suggestions
If you are looking for something that is more military focussed like a regiment and are looking for a regiment tag generator, the tool above will do the job. Although it is not focused on a more serious military-style setting, there are some categories that will produce names and ideas that do fit a strict military setting. The Technology and War filters in particular will give you lots of great ideas that are well focussed for a military unit in an army.
Take advantage of the clan tag additions to generate clan tags or regiment tag ideas based on the abbreviation process outlined above. Here is a small selection of some great regiment tag names that have a strong military focus in the wording that they use. You can extend the 3 or 4 letter clan tags to make them longer by adding unit numbers, the letter of where the unit is stationed or some other reference to the army that you belong to.

Best Clan Names For Gaming
Some of the best video games out there like Battlefield, Call of Duty, Apex Legends and many of the games in the Tom Clancy franchise offer a strong multiplayer ecosystem. Players can team up and take on large battles against other players or often in large raid style battles against AI enemies. Games like Division 2 and Destiny 2 have built up a massive following for the team based combat they offer players.
If you are someone who puts a lot of time into these games with your friends, why not put an official label on your squad and turn it into a clan? You are in the perfect place to find the best clan names to use for gaming. The filters for war and technology work well for strict military settings like COD and Division 2. You will need to focus more on Sci-Fi style stuff for Destiny, Halo and any of the space fantasy settings.
