I found a poster of collective nouns for supernatural and mythical sorts of creatures, though some are real now. It was supposedly from Wondermark, with David Malki as the only person’s name on it, without clear indication as to how he is associated with it all. However, I needed the information in text, and in a table, not a small graphic. So with a little formulaic help from Excel, I typed out a minimal amount of text and let Excel create the rest for me.
Below is a table of supernatural collective nouns, in text and alphabetical order for all the creatures, unlike the poster that grouped them so you’d have to know in which group something belonged to find it properly. It’s just easier in pure alphabetical order for them all.
There are some pretty cool collective nouns in this group, btw! My top 3 are:
An audacity of gargoyles
A supremacy of dinosaurs (a term you can use quite often)
Is it me, or every time that I see US ice dance skater Meryl Davis, I think that the Avatar animators stole her looks for the Na’vi creatures in the movie?

Sure looks like a little nose job, war paint and dreadlocks could have made Meryl the sister of Neyteri! The TV pictures are even better, and I wish Neyteri would have smiled for a picture or two! But maybe if Meryl had shown up in the crazy blue jump suits worn by Ukrainian pairs skaters Tatiana Volosozhar and Stanislav Morozov at these same Olympics, it might have convinced you!

Hey, isn’t there a gala show or something after the competition is over? Meryl should maybe come out in that get up and a little blue face paint! She and skating partner Charlie White could do an Avatar epic!
Or maybe do one for the World Championship in Turin next month? Probably too soon but certainly not for next winter! I think they’d have the crowd behind them!
But listen, Meryl, Avatar made a ton of money! There’s no reason a little of it couldn’t be yours! I think you’ve got a great case they stole your beauty for those creatures in that mega-hit movie!
Maybe even better, ask for a starring role in the sequel! When the avatar comes out into the real world!
And takes up ice dancing! No, just kidding! 🙂
Congrats on the silver medal at the ice dance in the Olympics, Meryl and Charlie.
Fantastic show, but Virtue & Moir were just a tad better.
