When I was a little kid, I wanted to be a superhero. Not any superhero. I wanted to be a Ninja Turtle. I was so fascinated by how they saved the world from the bad guys, and I literally watched every single episode ever released.

Chances are your child will some day grow up and watch just as much Ninja Turtles as I did (although I don't hope so since it went kinda overboard). In that case, I've got you covered with these 15 categories of superhero names that I'll dive into:

3 Tips to Coming Up with Superhero Names

That was all of the superhero names I could come up with. You don't have to use the ones I've come up with. You can mix and match them to find the ideal name. Nevertheless, here are 5 tips to coming up with cool superhero names:

1. Keep It Relevant

When you're doing your brainstorm on superhero names, you want to make sure that you choose a name that's relevant. Don't just randomly name your dog Groot if your dog doesn't have any traits that reflects Groot from Guardians of the Galaxy. Keep it relevant. It's so much more fun.

2. Conduct a Thorough Brainstorm

That brings me to my next tip which is to create a brainstorm over all of the names that you could potentially use. It'll help you get an overview of all the names and which name that are going to be the ideal name for you.

3. Check Out Other Name Categories

If you feel like you're stuck in the process of coming up with a superhero name, try to expand your horizon. Try to take a look at dragon names or other categories that might come in handy.

Final Thoughts

Woooh, what a mouthful. I hope you're able to use some of the superhero names that made this list. Over the years, I've written down a lot of superhero names when watching movies, and I've sprayed them into this list.
