Tips for Picking a Great Name
When picking a sprint name it’s helpful to make sure the name is memorable and easy to type and say. You can determine how formal sounding it should be based on your company culture. A mountain name will sound more business-like, while a cartoon character name might better suit a more laidback culture.
Keep in mind that these names aren’t the best for tracking long term (a version number is better suited for that), but it’s much easier to discuss these fun sprint names amonst a team.
Most of the ideas in the sprint name generator come from names or words in specific topic areas. At my old company we’d select a name and then let one of the designers create a graphic to represent it.
Here are some sprint name examples. You can also use these to come up with your own topics.
