Oh boy, my time to shine.
So our first D&D group first didn't have a name, just like pretty much every company when they first start hacking and slashing and stabbing. But after we cleared the first dungeon, we noticed it was oddly well furnished. So we start taking everything. No, you don't understand. Everything. Tables, chairs, tapestries, armour and weapons, the gold inlay on chests, even a pair of giant black iron doors (slightly damaged thanks to our fighter. He headbutted it so hard he left a dent in the shape of his face on the other side.).
For our relentless and impressively ambitious greed we gained a decent sum of gold and the group title of Carpe Omnia, which loosely translates to Take Everything. Pretty fitting in my opinion.
Do you have a bard in the party? He/she can sing this song here:
Want food but got no money
I'm screwed, or so it would seem
That's why I came up with this brilliant scheme
Just steal everything
For real, I'm not that picky
I'll steal whatever's in sight
Don't judge, 'cause you don't understand my plight
I steal everything.
Did you know that in this barbaric country
They only give you money if you work?
Thanks but no thanks, "The Man"
I'll keep stealing all I can
Instead of being a fascist, yuppy jerk
Who would seek employment
When life offers such enjoyment?
Anything I get I can get for free
Besides, the economy's shit
So I make haste when making exits
Get chased by a murderous mob
Hey man, still beats getting a job
(Spoken) Am I right?
I feel that it's my duty
To steal, 'cause stealing's an art
I'll steal clothing and shelter, whatever I lack
Candy from babies, the shirt off your back
Credit, identities, thunder, and scenes
Intellectual property, whatever that means
And if you look closer
This poor little orphan will steal
From this musical
We had a maternal, neutral good halfling monk in our party for a while. Everyone's PC loved her, and she became somewhat of a leader and moral compass for our party. Her name was Mercy. We named our mercenary group Mercy's Merry Band of Misfits. Eventually, Mercy left to return to her children back home, and we renamed the group No Mercy.
My (stereotypically egotistic) wizard, Ulric, started introducing the party as "Ulric and the meat shields". After a few weeks of mild offense and unsuccessful attempts to come up with a better name, it stuck.
I run a campaign around my players regaining their lost memories. They eventually found out that they are part of a possibly world ending sinario and after a demon gave them 4 horses to help on a quest the slowly realised they were the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse. It didn't help that the horses turned out to be undead or monstrous (the demons idea of a joke).
On a side note they are very nice undead horses.

The Bloodstone Brotherhood
After raiding a drow encampment, they came across at set of rings, each with an embedded red stone. They sold all the other loot but kept the rings. Whenever a party member dies, they take his ring, and the new member must prove their muster before receiving that ring and gaining "membership"
There was sub-group within my first party, three of the five members were Caribiean Thunder . There was Cuban Pete, Tropical Mojito and Hawaiian Dynamite. Their logo/symbol was coconut with lightning bolts coming out of it, it looked more like a testicle and thus was dubbed 'Pete the Electric Testicle'.
The Group as a whole went by The Soul Knights, which was our WoW guild.
I've never suggested this, but often wanted to. If I'm ever in a group with 7 players (and if it's a lighthearted enough campaign), I'm going to suggest we call ourselves the Losers' Club after the kids in IT.
We are called Three and a half Vistani because we compose of a Tiefling fighter, half-Orc Druid, a Dragonborn Barbarian(who are all over six feet tall) and a half-elf sorceress, who is about 4'9". Our DM likes to refer to us as a group of women thugs!
Drawing by our half-Orc for reference I play as the half-elf.
We came up with a name. Something about ravens since half the party worships a god with a raven symbol. But after I suggested "going full murderhobo" on an NPC, we became the Murderhobos, and now no one remembers what the original name was.
Isn't the name of the current party, but an old one. It was all of our first time playing and none of them had an idea what they wanted to name themselves so they asked me to use a group name generator and they can pick from that. They settled with "Outcasts of the Tricked." It held to relevance to the group at all but apparently it sounded cool to them. Over the course of the campaign the name became a joke in the public eye and they kept trying to change it but the name stuck really well.
