What’s in a name?
For Scouts BSA patrols, a name unites new and old friends. What’s more, it gives Scouts a chance to express their originality.
And with new troops come new patrol names!
The young minds in Scouts BSA have put their heads together to come up with the some of the most creative (and hilarious) patrol names we’ve ever heard. This isn’t an exhaustive list, so after you read through these patrol names, be sure to post any you’ve heard of in the comments.

Patrol names in 2019 aren’t ‘standard’
After reading this list of names, it’s clear patrols are all about creativity and identity for Scouts. After all, who besides a Scout could come up with something like, “Plasma Dragons”?
Fun is welcome, and Scouts make the final call when it comes to selecting their patrol’s name. (As long as it’s Scout-appropriate, it’s good to go.)
Plus, the patrol emblems you’ll find at the Scout Shop offer all kinds of visual inspiration for one-of-a-kind patrol names. Just remember: your Scouts don’t have to stick to the patch’s item name.
For instance, if your patrol picks the “Phoenix patrol emblem,” they can still choose a name like the “Funky Fire Phoenix Patrol.”
