Fandom names that'll make you nod your head in approval

USER CONTENT
misc.

You saw the worst of the worst in the previous article - now see that not all hope is lost in the universe of fandoms. Some of the names are pretty thoughtful, clever, and cute! See for yourself below.

INFINITE = INSPIRIT

Fans can be with the group "in spirit" for "infinity"


Jay Park = Jaywalkerz

It's a clever use of his name, and just cute.


2NE1 = Blackjack

This is clever because of the group's name "21" being linked to the game "Blackjack." It sounds badass, which is good, too!


MAMAMOO = MooMoo

This is a really cute fandom name using the end of the MAMAMOO and doubling it. It also goes with the fan stick, which is shaped as a radish because "moo" in Korean is radish.


But their fans wearing the radish masks is admittedly kinda freaky...


And makes me think of this:



Girls' Generation = SONE

Like "sowon (??) = wish = allusion to "Genie" song = So One, like we're all one


Psy = Psycho


It's a cute play on his name and a pretty accurate portrayal of Psy's music style - he does like to go all craaazaaay with his music! So he needs his Psychos to back him up!


B2ST = B2UTY

It's cute to refer to their fans as the B2UTies to their B2ST. You can have the same effect with the "2" too!


Ailee = Aileean

This is another cute wordplay with the artist's name, and her quirky personality ensures she has equally quirky fans from another planet.


EXO = EXO-L

While most fans preferred EXOtics, the meaning behind this fandom name is pretty cute. The "L" stands for "love," which is basic so whatever, but the letter also is the only one between EXO-K and EXO-M, bridging the two units. That part of the idea is cute.
