5 Hilarious Tweets About Clan Names

Tweets

Clan Names are one of the most hilarious things to come out of the video game world.

Whether it’s a group that has an odd sense of humor or just something silly, there is always someone who tweets about them.

Some people find clan names so funny they don’t even realize which games they’re talking about! Others poke fun at their Scrabble skills and make jokes about how complicated some clans’ names can be: for example, “The-Coveted-Fangirls,” named after characters from the popular Japanese anime series Sword Art Online. Here are five tweets that cracked us up this week:

“This dude in my clan uses his name as if he was replacing all vowels with I don’t have any clan names but I’m laughing for four hours now. Kofi Diggs (@KDiddy) June 17, 2015 You guys can call my team anything you want to because we’re not going anywhere #SKXBAM – Jeff Garzik (@jeffgarzik) November 11, 2014

“UPDATE: The Dallas Mavericks are proud of their new name and will be wearing it with pride.” – Marc Cuban (@mcuban), January 15th 2012″FINAL UPDATE: We will no longer be known as the @DallasMavs; our official name is now just MAVS.

Dallas Mavericks (@dallasmavs) June 18th, 2011″ “*UPDATE: The Yankees are proud to announce that they have changed the team’s name back.” – New York Yankees (@Yankees), October 19th 2013 *FINAL UPDATE: Today we will officially be known as the @NYY. and more! .and ending with a final tweet from Marc Cuban on November 11, 2014 reading “#SKXBAM”.

The next sentence is about how Mark Cuban didn’t seem too happy when he found out his team was being renamed while listening to a podcast hosted by Barstool Sports’ CEO Dave Portnoy. He tweeted at one point during show in response to its host, “Dave Portnoy what’s the deal with changing my team name from Mavs to Stars?”

The next sentence is about how people have reacted differently. Some are overjoyed by the change because it sounds more like a professional sports organization while others say its too feminine and not intimidating enough for an NBA team.

Regardless of whether you’re on board or against this new name, one thing we can all agree on is that it seems mostly likely that there will be another announcement coming up in 2020 when Mark Cuban has his contract renewed!

The following sentences talk about other things happening in the world of competitive basketball teams’ names: The New York Yankees announced they were going back to using just their last two letters as a team name, The Miami Heat announced they were changing their name to the Miami Tropics.

“#ClanSurnameNames: The MacDonald Clan, The McDougal Clan” @timothyscoots

“@nbcnews just tweeted this article about clans and such! #americanclans pic.twitter.com/KdZUgOlXKA” Ben Montgomery (@benmontgomery) July 16, 2014*

There are plenty of clan names from all over the world, but some of the most common are:

  • The Clan Campbell (Scotland)
  • The MacDonald Clan (Scotland)
  • the McDougal Clan (Scotland)*

The McLeod Clan(Scottish Americans, Canada, and US Territories such as Hawaii). Some people have German or Irish surnames that might sound like clans too. There is no one way to define a clan name for everyone because there are so many different types! The term “clan” comes from Gaelic origins. Some Scots use it in place of family names. Many families also choose to adopt patronymics which first come from Scotland but became popular in other countries including Norway and Sweden during the Viking Age. Patronymy is a system of naming that uses the name of one’s father or ancestor as their own surname.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when choosing your clan:

The MacDonald Clan*(Scotland)*is typically spelled with two “a”s and an asterisk, which denotes it is pronounced like “macdonald.” *It can also be translated into Gaelic as ‘son of Donald.’*So if you have Scottish ancestry or just want to honor your heritage, this could be a great choice for you! The McDougal Clan has a similar spelling but means son of Dougal.*Examples include actors James McAvoy and Jared Padalecki. While many people will be interested in the history behind these names, keep in mind that they are unlikely to register as a trademark and it may not be prudent to use them for this reason.

The MacKenzie Clan (Scotland)i s typically spelled with two “a”s and an asterisk, which denotes it is pronounced like “mackenzie.”

It can also be translated into Gaelic as ‘son of Kenneth.’*If you want your clan name to have roots in Scotland or just want something that sounds really cool, then this could be a great choice! The McKennon Clan has a similar spelling but means son of Kennan.*Examples include actor Ryan Reynolds. Again, while many people will find the meaning behind these names interesting, keep in mind that they are unlikely to register as a trademark and it may not be prudent to use them for this reason.

Some of the most humorous clan names would have to be The Clan Chiavatti.. That’s right, I couldn’t make up my own name so I googled “weirdest last name” + “US. The Cline family is also worth noting because you’re guaranteed some good laughs when people ask how your parents could spell their surname with two different letters. We don’t know if there was confusion about which letter should come first or what! In order to be a part of our clan, you have to pass the following test first: “What’s your favorite Beyoncé song?” -Hold On (Beyoncé) -Halo (Beyoncé) -Flawless (Beyoncé) I’m sorry, ma’am. You’re not in the right clan. -Liz Tiffinette (@TiffineyPixiedusts) via Twitter on July 27th 2016 at 11:52 am EST #clannameexamples2016 #gtgagtagsfail @gregtoddlee 😂😂😂💀 pic.twitter.com/cyKp
